    Is that the ZD331? I think my dealer said the ZD326 was going to be about that price. Not sure on the bagger though.

    I've seen them...

    My Kubota dealer called me out to look them over as soon as he got some in and put them together. They appear to be a HUGE improvement over anything previous in the ZD line.

    I found the cutter deck most impressive at 6.5" deep... it's something!
    The new radiator and hydro cooler is nice also... as is the improved seating and dual tanks.

    My main dislike was the serious weight... and the wheelbase is still a bit too long.
    They wouldn't have an issue if they didn't try to build one frame and put all the decks on it.

    I didn't get by in time that day to meet with him and get a price so I have no idea if that's a good price or not. Don't sound bad for a ZD331 right off the top of my head though.

    I also like the maintenance hatch. I may have to see if I can put one on my ZD28. I see they put bigger tires on the 331. I've had problems with putting ruts in when the ground is wet, maybe bigger tires will help, distribute the weight maybe?
