Kubota ZD-300 series zero-turn lawn mowers
Earlier this year, Kubota unveiled a new range of zero turn mowers titled the ZD-300 series. Comprising 5 different models; ZD321(54" and 60" Deck), ZD326 and the ZD331 (60" and 72" Deck) they are certainly going to be turning a few heads.
And why shouldn't they? All five models sport the diesel Kubota engine (either 21hp, 26hp or the big 31hp) which is touted as using 30% fuel than similar sized petrol engines, with fewer emissions and much less noise. Yet, what they lack in environmental causing problems they make up for in performance and reliability.
The three homeowner models come standard with deeper mower decks, easy maintenance access and high-capacity transmission systems. The fully powered diesel engines prove more than capable of dealing with wet grass, slippery traction conditions and coping with slopes.
Even though wet grass can often become a problem for most mowers these Kubota zero turns seem to handle it with efficacy. Apart from their great traction features they are also able to cut wet grass and discharge it with a minimum of fuss.
For a great rundown of this series Deen Implement Co. carries the a blow-by-blow description with easy to see maintenance views.
