Kubota Deisel Zero Turn OR OTHER DIESEL ZERO TURN
Here we go again, Kubota makes a top of the line diesel ZTR, and their diesel engines are sold to, and used by many of their competitors.
Their are to many variables that go into purchasing a diesel ZTR, 1.) Initial investment much higher vs gasoline, and gets ridiculous depending on model. 2.) A diesel ZTR requires a robust frame, and their is a weight increase, but their are lighter diesel ZTR's within this class. 3.) Although a diesel engine requires less over all maintenance, the routine maintenance can be expensive, and intimidating to a first time buyer. 4.) If your mowing application calls for relentless power & torque, lower fuel consumption, you demand less maintenance at this level of equipment? go diesel; furthermore a Kubota diesel or ZTR was on my short list, you cannot go wrong with a BOTA diesel I've always been impressed with Kubota.
Toro or Exmark ztr with a Kubota engine. Hard to beat that Turbo force or Triton deck. Plus, I have several Toro and Exmark dealers close by. I have a couple Kubota dealers but they are further away.
