    Does GH use the same Kubota model D722 engine in both their 721 and 722 diesel mowers? I can't find the actual Kubota engine number listed in the GH specs.
    Thanks.

    No, the diesel in the 22HP machine is a lot different than the one in the 21HP machine. They are both Kubota industrial diesels, not Kubota farm diesels. However, the 22HP engine is designed to run smoother and quieter, and has lots more torque.

    Thanks Mowingman. I haven't found the specs for the GH 722D, but did find that the GH 721D uses the Kubota D722 engine. Then I found specs on the D722 from Kubota. I wish GH published more info on them, or at least the engine model numbers rather than just stating it is a 22HP Kubota.
