    Has anyone else seen the new Kubota low-end ZTR?

    Forgot to take a picture of the thing, but I saw it at my dealers when I went to pick up my mower from getting it serviced. I think it is called the "Kommander". The one I saw had a 26HP B&S engine & a 48" deck, but the owner said there are three versions, and two will have Kawasaki engines. Not sure what deck sizes will be available. This one was listed at $4995, but was being sold at $4495. The Kawasaki versions will be higher of course. Couldn't find it on the Kubota web site yet though.

    Looks like a pretty decent mower.

    I see mention of the ZG100 Kommander on Kubota's New Products page of the website, but it's only some marketing video shot in shadow. There's absolutely no mention of it on their Residential/Commercial Mower product page.

    You're right. Can't tell much about from that video. As I recall, the engines are labeled "Kubota" and will fall under the three (3) year warranty by the Kubota dealer. That sounds pretty much like what John Deere does with their mowers.

    10 guage deck 3100's has the briggs els or 23hp kohler option. Pretty light on options for the price compared to a bb zt or gravely. The financing is usually what sales a bota 0% for 60 will suck a lot of people in.

    Well at least in my area they will have a big resale value over bad boy and gravely.

    Just for the financing? NO! However, if it meets your needs for a low to mid-range mower (commercial work), and you have a good dealer, then the financing will be the "cherry on the top" of a good mower for what it was designed for.
