    Is the exmark 72" any match for the kubotas? Or is it apples to oranges

    I know they are build much better, but I'm just checking to see if its worth the extra couple thousand for the kubota when im going to be putting 900hrs+/year on it

    greasing is less often, oil change is less often on kubota(so that could be the one thing that is equal) and hydro change is less often.

    never ever even once blown or replaced a belt either on a kubota and we have owned over 10 mowers including 8 ztrs plus tractors. many of which had over 2000hrs on original belts.

    everything on the kubota machines is made to outlast and we have seen proof of that (minus the slight hickup on the trannys of the previous series:rolleyes:) over the many years we have owned

    hell, even the tires that come on them last twice as long or longer. i have put 1200hrs on original tires and they still had 1/3 or more of the tread on them.

    Exmark flat free caster wheels, 5grease points all once a year, Kubota says change hydrostatic every 300 Exmark 500 hrs so if you follow the manufacturer I guess exmarks wins
