we agree on something about kubotas. i have never had issues with screen clogging in a period shorter than 8 hrsEven those I don't like the cut of my Kubota, I've never had any problem with the screen. My mower has never over-heated due to grass build up my screen. Now if you want to talk about grass build up under the deck that is another topic. Yes, I love the hydrolic lift. That is the reason I first bought one.
