    This is for the Exmark Techs...
    I,m thinking of trading my 72" zd28 pro deck/mower In on a Exmark zero turn.
    I have not been satisfied with the cut since day one...Now with the mulching kit...Its not working for me by ant means.
    Can you tell me If and why your exmark top of your line zee turns will make me a happier man?
    Thanks in advance

    Daner,

    You are asking the Exmark Techs for a sales pitch. You are targeting the wrong group! With such a broad ranging question, you may not get an answer at all.

    I'll add my 2 cents. I have never owned Kubota ZTRs, but I own an 01 Exmark Lazer 26HP EFI and an 03 Exmark Lazer 28HP EFI. Both have the Ultracut deck. Both have oodles of power, sip fuel, and leave a carpet smooth cut. Both run the factory mulch kit year round except during leaf season when the Accelerator bagger is on. At that point I use the stock high lift blade. Both have been extremely maintenance free machines. They certainly get my vote.

    If you werent happy with your Kubota i really dont think you will like exmark with the new triton decks as you have probablly herd they have had alot of problems with it...i would look into a demo or slightly used one without the triton deck..those were/are really good mowers

    From my research I see what your saying about the new Triton Deck...and Like Dee Was saying about the older ultracuts...At this stage of the game the Mulching kit Is now off...and I'm back to the old Side discharge...With the High Lifts ...the dealer took the kit back with no problem...they even sent a mech. down here to change it back for me...and now they are realy interested in making this machine cut to perfection...so We will see what happens.

    Yes the Kubota is a Bit of a race car...That part I like...Its just the Deck...Now this deck I have Is the Pro Deck...and You think they would have it mastered by now.
    I thought toro Is hooked up with Exmark some way or another...But I will take a look at this machine that your talking about GM.28.
    Cheers
