    I think it's a Kubota ZTR (?)

    You are right it's a Kubota and they are mowing machines. I have 2 zd21's with 60" decks and lawn vacs and now own 2 zd28's with the the 72" decks. I really doubt there is a ztr out there that is as well built. Its hard to beat that liquid cooled diesel.

    this thing will stay on the side of a hill that i would've bet money that it would not. i should have bought 2 of them. my turf tiger didn't hold a candle to this mower.

    Just currious but do you see any hairline fractures around the anti scalp wheels on the mower deck?

    None apparent on my ZD21-60. Are you asking if the deck itself is fractured? I find that very unlikely, but nothing's impossible.

    The only reason I ask is because there is a guy down here that has one that he bought last year and it is cracked on both sides were the scalp wheels are. I personally think that he just got a bad stamped deck.

    Is this guy with the problem the same guy you said had a blade clutch problem? If so it sounds like he must be rough on a machine, as I have yet to see anyone else besides you post a problem with these mowers.:confused:

    Actually yes he is the same guy, and yes he is hard on equipment. But as I said I was currious if this is a problem or not, because I have only seen three maybe four of these mowers in use.
