    I was at the local Kubota Dealer and spotted this new Kubota ZD. Enjoy!

    Yeah, I saw one at my dealer last week, too! Pretty cool. Much shorter. It looks like the trans is much beefier. The orange rims looked a little different. I didn't get a price, did you?

    Looks cool! A lot shorter than the older machines.

    Little too much plastic, but overall nice!

    with it being shorter wonder if the mower will be tail heavy and looks like it would rider rougher than the older units being so short

    I was just comparing that pic with one I have of my ZD28, and it looks like some of the being shorter comes from the rear end not sticking out so far behind the rear wheels.

    That is exactly what I was thinking.

    I demoed. the zd26 with a 60in yesterday at my dealer. pretty sweet. they redesigned the transmisson and increased the blade speed. they have a 31 hrse pwr with a 72" deck, it's a beast. the grease pts on the top of the deck are easy access now, they add a door to reach them from the top of the foot platform. dual fuel tanks. you raise/lower the deck with your feet. just a few observations. the dealer didn't have the price, because they haven't recieved their invoice from kubota yet.

    I just bought the 2 331's...a 60 and a 72. I traded in my zd28 60's on them. They are shorter, quieter, more powerful, way easier to grease, faster and more comfortable to operate. List on them was in the mid 15k but I only paid 11.5k for the 60 and 12k for the 72. Find a dealer with stock and get bargaining now...Kubota wants to push them and you should welcome such a windfall into your trailer. Way sweet machines!
