    I have been looking at three different mowers. I have demoed all three and they all mow great.

    Choice #1 Kubota ZD326P 60" Deck, 26 hp Diesel.

    Choice #2 Dixie Chopper Classic 60" Deck, 27 hp gas.

    Choice #3 Hustler Super Z 60" Deck 27 hp gas.

    I own a few other Z's and I need to start to replace them. I am leaning towards the dixie chopper but the kubota looks like it would last forever. What do you guys think?

    Do not buy the Dixie. Those mowers are gimmicky jokes.

    The Kubota is the way to go. Another beefy mower to look at is a Massey-Ferguson Z.
