    Anyone using the Hustler Z diesel? If so what are your thoughts on it? And any other brand recommendations are appreciated.

    I've heard negative things about the 28 CAT being weak. However, Hustler has had a diesel as their flagship for years so it should be a good machine. If I ever get a diesel, it will probably be a Scag but they have the 28 CAT also.

    We dont use a Cat, we used to in a previous model Super Z it was a 35hp Cat powered unit.
    The current Hustler Z Diesel is a 25hp 3 cylinder Shibaura engine, very nice engine and very quiet unit.

    That's right.....now I remember. I thought the 35 CAT was a strong engine. Why did you stop using the Kubota like in the 3200/3400?
