Kubota ZD 21 with classical 54" deck


LawnSite Member
My property is 3 acres with some hills and 34 trees.

I own an old Snapper Z1401K at the moment (still love that machine BTW)

The climate is very wet in Belgium and my property is a bit swampy.

I am tempted to buy a Kubota ZD 21 with 54" deck (PRO deck not available yet in Belgium)

My dealer wants to sell it for 15000 €.

Is the ZD 21 a machine that lasts?
How is the cutting quality?
Would you recommend the mulching kit?

You will stick it and leave ruts in swampy ground. If you're set on a zero turn I'd recommend an encore . they are the lightest I know of.
