    I can't give you any feedback on the question, but I sure would be interested in any answers on Kubota as well. I am particularly interested in diesel.

    My town has 19000 people in it. It's very small market, but the Kubota dealer sold 24 of the diesel ZTRs last year. He said only 1 had ever been back for any type of work at all.

    Seems like all of the larger commercial customer based LCOs around here run them.

    I have owned my ZD21 since jan. of 2002. Its a peach. The local dealer has sold about 8 . All of them to goverment type agencies.I have not seen another LCO in my area with one.

    I run a Kubota TG1860 Diesel. That's a garden tractor style. 800 hrs and not one trip to the shop. I would not hesitate to buy anything made by Kubata.

    I purchased a Kubota sub compact utility tractor, but I looked very hard at the Zero turn mowers. they look very nice. The Tractor appears to be a sound investment thus far. 4wd 60" mid mower deck, 48" Box scraper, a loader, and post hole auger.
    Here is a photo, scope the huge deck. 2500 RPM PTO driven. The Loader should be in soon, was/is on back order.

    Use a zg20, cuts great, but sometime have to cut bahia from both directions to get all the stragglers.
