    I just saw a pamplet on the new Kubota's. Lot of new features.
    They have a new 26 & 31 hp diesel. Wider footprint(tires) new blades. Foot control for raising & lowering deck. Entire unit is shorter. I will have to try out the 31 hp diesel.

    .......plus, I hate hydraulic lift decks. Too slow compared to my foot while cutting at over 10 mph.:)

    Sounds like they are addressing most of the issues. Better hydros (high volume low pressure system), faster speed, foot assist deck lift, deeper deck.
    Looks like a winner.

    Note to self:
    Make a mental note of these 'real' improvements and keep them in mind.

    Seriously... It's good to see a MFG making a real attempt to make real improvements that matter to improve their product performance for the end user.

    I don't think the engines are turbo's. Yes, new tranny's. Shorter frame. New blade . I can't remember all the goodies.
