Well I finally took delivery of my new ZD331 Kubota 60". I got it equipped with the dump from seater bagger and striping kit. So far I have put about 10 hours on it and I am very pleased so far. I was having a issue with it missing out with the bagger on but that has since went away. I bought the bagger for leaves this fall but used it on a lawn last week just so I could see how it works. I did a great job and filled even. It has a large window on top so you can see when you are about full which is a really nice feature. It is heavy and well made. It is a breeze to take off as you just pick your spot you want to drop it, pull four pins and drive away. The blower part is like Exmarks which is a breeze also to take off. The hose is a clear flexable hose with wire to make it stronger. The only thing I have found I dont like is where the hose goes onto the blower there is no hose clamp our anyway to keep it from blowing off. I did have it blow off on me twice the other day and it covers you with grass in a hurry. I am going to have to figure out a way to find a quick clamp system. The dealer told me they dont put hose clamps on it so you can take it off easy if it gets plugged. The striping kit on these mowers is pretty cool. It actually is spring loaded and when you raise the deck it goes up and locks up and out of harms way. It does not run the full length of the deck just between the tires but does a amazing job. It does make more noise than a typical kit does because of how it is designed. I did lose the bolt out of one end of it so I took both bolts out and put the strongest lock tight I could find on them so hopefully that fixes that problem. The mower itself is powerful and well built. The diesel has a ton of torque and is quiet. It rides well with the pivoting front axle and weight. I have found it to be very comfortable to operate also. When I took the bagger off I did leave the front weights on which affected the handling a bit. I took those off this evening and mowed my lawn and I noticed a big difference in how it handled. Fuel consumption is right around 1.5 gph right now. From everything I have read this is high but I assume once it gets broke in it will improve greatly. The other thing I am not real sure about is it only has a fuel gauge for one tank and a light for the other. I have been running on the tank with the light till it comes on then switching over. I am going to have to read in the manual as when the light comes on how much fuel you have left. I seems to come on when it is at a half a tank or so because it came on today within two hours after I had just fueled up and I looked in the tank and there was a lot of fuel left in there yet. This may be something I can adjust or have the dealer adjust if it is coming on to early. I am going to sharpen blades after the mowing route tomorrow. I checked under the deck today and it is still extremely clean with little build up. I will post some pics of the beast tomorrow. Does anyone know if this is normal on the fuel light? And Kubota owners does the fuel economy get better once broke in?
