So I won’t be buying either one at least a new one on the near future. My Grasshopper has a lot of life left at the rate I use it. This thread is just intended for the debate. I currently own a 428d Grasshopper and my favorite part is the Kubota under the hood. The cut quality of the deck is good but not the best I’ve ever seen. Mine has 2400 hours 2200 of which were low paid and low care maintenance workers. All major components are original so obviously not that shabby of a unit. But there’s several features I think make the Kubota better. What’s your guys take?
