    I am looking to by a small diesel ztr mower to replace my ZD18. I know the two mowers have the same engine but was wondering about a comparison as far as cut and maintenance.

    I run a ZD221. I really like it. It has been virtually trouble free (knock on wood) so far and after 400+ hours, still works great. The only maintenance I've done are the regular oil, trans, air, and fuel filters. Will probably need new tires this winter, but overall, its been a great machine for us and I definitely recommend it. No experience with Grasshopper.

    Thanks for the reply. My local Kubota Dealer has had a 2012 ZD221 with a 54 inch deck out in the yard all year and gave me a quote of 9900 for it. Seems like a decent price.

    Thats a really good price for a compact diesal. Never seen or used a hopper, the bota's sure do look nice
