    I was in talking to my dealer today about my ZD28 that's dropping the coolant again (3rd water pump in 600 hours) and he said there's an update on my ZD331.

    Turns out the motor mounts flex too much and allow the fan to hit the radiator (took out the radiator on my 331 at 15 hours) when you drive over a curb at just a certain angle.

    Anyways, wanted to let everyone know to get ahold of your dealer and have them check on it. Would rather have to you get it done on a down day, rather than have a day down because there's a fault that could have been taken care of earlier.

    How do like the new ZD331? A lot of guys on here bought one this year. How are they holding up?

    I've got 126 hours on mine so far, and the jury is still out.

    It's taken some getting used to, but it's also a completely different machine than my ZD28/60".

    I'm going to be using / demoing a ZD326/60" sometime this week, so I can do a better comparison between the old and the new.

    lanwmoreman I don,t think the zd326 will have enough power especily if
    you run a mulching kit
    the 6.5" deep deck pules a lot of power It seemes to me they are going backward the zd28 has more power
    I have the zd331 but i donot have enough houre to relly let you no how i like it i forgot to metion i have 60" deck

    I am waiting on pins and needles for your opinion on the 331.

    It's looking like I'll have a few minutes come Sunday to post my thoughts now at 150 hours.

    I'd do it now, but my 5 year old and I are getting ready to go outside and watch the space station fly overhead... :D
