    hi ,
    A few questions
    Is the 597 diahatsu a deleted model
    Am i correct is the 580 kubota series not up to the level of the 597
    oil cooler
    z stand
    suspension seat
    hydraulic drive cooling fan

    So i assume the model line up is z 580 or the grounds master 7200 series
    If this is the case ,it appears u either have a machine with everything or one with little or no extras

    I hope that i am wrong

    If correct would it not have been far superior

    1/ z 580 as is entry level 23-25 hp

    2 / Redesign 597 to take 28 hp kubota [1.1 ltr ]

    3/ grounds master 7210 series [ 35 hp 1.1 ltr turbo]

    QQ 7210/00 series etc does not have different wheel track to allow for different deck width .. Therefore having litte trim ability with smaller deck ??

    Q Does the 7210/00 series come with either 60 inch rear and side discharge decks ?

    The 597 is highly regarded in aust. and popular
    The 597 has also been around a long time with 99 % of issues being resolved
    cooling fAN pump resolved ,, mule drive belts resolved etc

    Thanks tomo:waving:

    The Z597-D is an active model in the U.S., but I can't speak for Australia as those decisions are made by the Toro International Division and it's Australian distributor and dealers. The Z Master 580-D models are built on a different frame than the Z Master Z597-D, are powered by a Kubota 25hp diesel engine, possess a host of different features and specs, and as a result are priced lower than the Z597-D series. In the States our product hierarchy based upon features/performance/price points would be Z580-D, Z597-D and Groundsmaster 7200 Series. Again, this may be different outside of the U.S.

    The GM7200 drive wheel stance is the same for either 5' or 6' decks. There are three deck options, 62" Guardian Recycler, 72" Guardian Recycler and 72" side discharge. You can check out the features of all machines by visiting our website
