    I'm a new guy here.Have been reading the forums for a while but this is my 1st post.Ok,my Dad just bought a Kubota Zg227 last month.Its had quite a few little quirks that we were able to fix easy enough,but today the engine seems to have locked up.It has 11 hours on it.We went and cut a small cemetery lot,brought it back and it wont start.The starter will just barley rotate the engine.Has anybody else had any trouble or heard of any trouble out of these mowers?

    update:the dealer got it going again,after a new carb and plugs.They also had to change the oil and filter(oil was saturated with fuel).It was running way too rich and must have fouled the plugs,the cylinders got filled with fuel and locked the engine.They also replaced some wiring that was part of the recall on all the new Kubotas.Hopefully its fixed for good now.
