    Demo them both and you decide.

    What you'll get here is opinions, lies and arguments.

    The much earlier 21's (2002-2003) had some problems with the hydros.
    I just traded in 1 of my 2002 ZD21's and bought 2 new ZD326's.
    The mower had 1400 hrs and no problems other than the hydro.
    Great engine. Cut not great but it was not a pro deck.
    I bought 2 more Kubotas after I looked at other brands.
    To me that says it.

    Exmark. Its new and Kubota IMHO isnt even in the running when comparing to an Exmark. Im thinking the Exmark is an Advantage Series with the Ultra cut deck and is a proven mower. Personally I would go up the $300 to the 28 Kaw if possible. If not possible, I would buy the 25 anyway. That Exmark with the 28 Kaw is really the benchmark of 60 inch mowers if you read enough of these threads you will see that. You can buy it and know that your decision was a good one. What more would you want?

    Is that your 'real' pic? I used to think you looked 'nice', but after reading your posts, I would guess to venture that you are a true BITC..you know the rest, since most people you know call you that...:cool2::cool2::cool2::drinkup: btw... well, nevermind...LOL

    Can I ask what you are basing your opinion of Kubota on.

    No thx. I dont argue on here anymore. I just give my opinion when someone asks for help.

    Never argued on here, never will. Opinions are just that,opinions not attacks. I was wondering seriously because I will look for it on my machines.
