yeah, some mention by me on another thread a couple of weeks ago about kubota and the new ZG 300 and 200 series mowers. modeled off the new ones everyone is probably now at least semi familiar withnow.\ these look pretty good, the larger zg 327 is basically the same mower but with a gas engine, and no integral front end jack standard. i checked them out at the dealer and now you can all see the innovation they have made in the new lineup. if i was not a diesel lover i would try one of these. what does everyone think. oh yeah, the 200 series is definintly a lot smaller now, they need to make it in a diesel still but knows. just saying, looks bigger than it is in life, very compact machines.
