    Kubota ZD6154 Chute Deflector

    After a couple week wait, the replacement parts has arrived. Installation was pretty straightforward and easy. Seems to work as expected and overall I'm pleased. It's been a 7-8 month wait but that's to be expected considering how crazy things are now. Im happy.

    Kubota ZD6154 Chute Deflector

    Thanks for the photos. Looks like I have it installed correctly aside from the parts I don't have. I called yesterday and the dealer is sending out the missing parts. Hopefully it doesn't take 6 months to receive like the rest. Thank again.

    Kubota ZD6154 Chute Deflector

    Don't worry about it. They did send the correct kit but it's missing parts. I'll have to call Monday and get the missing parts shipped to me. Thanks

    Kubota ZD6154 Chute Deflector

    Do you have any photos of it installed? The brackets holes are not in my deck as the manual shows it should be. The instructions aren't worth a dang and I'm hoping they didn't send me the wrong kit. I can't find hardly any photos online to assist.

    Kubota ZD6154 Chute Deflector

    Well obviously everyone opts for the Advanced type chute.. After waiting over 6 months, the Kubota kit has arrived. I will give a review after Install for those who maybe interested in purchasing.

    I have been impressed. Glad I spent the extra money on the diesel.

    What is the cheapest kubota zero turn diesel?

    Not true. Paid 12k last week for a Brand New Kubota Diesel. Was previously looking at a gas burner that would've cost more.

    Kubota ZD6154 Chute Deflector

    Has anyone purchased the Kubota operator chute kit? I can't find any reviews online Looking at purchasing for my ZD1011. I'm interested in some photos and opinions before committing. I have researched the ACS but like the setup of the factory one. Thanks.

    ZD1011 Another Kubota to the lineup!

    After alot of research, I pulled the trigger on the ZD1011-54. Added the maintenance lift and will be ordering the chute blocker. This thing is a beast compared to the Badboy I owned. Even though I'm smaller in width (54 vs 60) I will more than make up the time because of speed and power. This...

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    I was worried about not getting the dual fuel tanks at first. So for comparison on fuel usage. My Badboy had a 6.5 gal capacity and the Kubota has 6.1 gal.Normally I could empty a 5 gallon jug after mowing with the Badboy.. This is how much I used this morning mowing. Pretty impressive machine.

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    I can't find enough info on the OEM Kubota brand. The ACS has plenty of info although it's very hard to decifer which one fits my mower. I wanted to have it ordered in time to install on my mower but doesn't look like it will happen. Guess I'll call them to verify the correct one.

    Does the lever get in the way? How hard was it drilling the holes in that thick deck?

    In regards to the chute, what are y'all's opinions on the Kubota chute blocker or the Advanced Chute system? Pros/Cons to each one?

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    Same here. I have a very good mower now 60" Badboy with a Kawa engine. But I figured in the long run and while I can get some money back on my current mower, that now is a good time to trade up. I think I'll be pleased. Should make delivery next week.

    Last question, how many of you with the ZD are strictly residential? Would it be considered an overkill?

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    I got them to "throw" in the lift. The chute I'm fairly certain I can build something. I think Ive made up my mind though.

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    Oh I definitely will. I did the same for my tractor and my sxs. When I make a purchase, it's usually for the long haul. I will definitely be getting a few extras such as the lift kit and chute lifter.
  21. kubotacres

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    Yep the ZD comes with it. Kubota says it's supposed to provide 22% better fuel economy. Not sure if it really does. I will for certain be adding the lift kit for easy maintenance on the deck. That's seems like a good feature for $100+.

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    That's the answer I was looking for. I had initially looked at buying the ZG series but later found out the "Kubota" engine was a rebadged Kohler. I tend to lean more on Kubota built engines whether they cost more or not due to reliability. Which is why I started looking at the diesel. Probably...

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    With my current 26 hp Kawasaki I'm using around 1.5 gallons an hour and stuck with a 6.5 gallon tank. I'm trying to justify atleast some savings in fuel although I know it won't make up the difference in amount I'll be spending.

    ZD1011 Fuel Consumption and Compare to Z724KW

    Looking at purchasing a ZD1011 and the lack of fuel storage is a disappointment at 6 gallons. The Z700 series has dual tanks but is a gas burner. I know I can step up to the larger Diesel for more storage but it's not practical considering this will only be for residential use only. My question...

    Bucket Level Indicator Adjustment for Grand L

    I've never adjusted the indicator rod since owning but being such a laid back day I decided to. I've read the manual and for no reason at all can explain why I'm unable to make this work. The indicator rod i can get adjusted but the plate I can't. Its almost like the plate isn't long enough...

    L3560 Idle Adjustment location

    RTV Windshield Suggestions

    I wanted to get opinions on those who have windshields on their RTV especially the 500 since I'm looking at purchasing one. I would really prefer the fold up however I'm worried about vibration and cracking at the hinges. The only other options are the two piece windshield which come with or...

    RTV 500 Rattling Front Brakes

    I've had enough... I'm curious if I'm the only one with a 500 that rattles like crazy from loose front brake pads. Every bump sounds like a jar of coins. This was noted when I brought it in for recall work and the dealer said it was fine. However If nobody else is experiencing this, then maybe...

    Need to upgrade to a 6' Rotary Cutter. Opinions?

    The Landpride rcr1860 that I bought for my l3200, and was well suited for that tractor is lacking with my l3560. It's not covering my tracks and a 6' cutter purchase is in order. I received a quote of $2150 for a RCR1872 which is identical to my current cutter only a foot wider. Before I make...

    Built Canopy for the L3560

    I've never owned a tractor with a canopy but now I see what I've been missing. About 4 years ago I acquired a piece of shiny Kubota Orange aluminum that I "planned" to install on the L3200. I tucked it away in storage and forgot about it. I found it a couple days ago and decided to spend the...

    Cannot Load Tires without Unseating Bead

    So a very long story shortened. Several weeks ago when I bought my l3560 the first thing I decided to do was load the rear tires. I have done this several times on my previous tractors and it's fairly easy....Until now. What I thought was to be a 1 hour job for both tires ended up being 4-6...

    L3560 12volt Power Supply

    From what I've read, the L60 series comes with a 12 volt harness behind the seat. I'm assuming that this is the cab only tractor since mine didn't come with one. I'm wanting to add a few small accessories and will need a 12 volt source. On my l3200 the power tap was under the rear fender. Can...

    Which Bucket to buy for LA805 loader

    So I've researched and still haven't found the answer I'm looking for. I was quoted a LA805 loader with a L2236 bucket (72" QA). The bucket is considered "light material". The other bucket I'm considering is the L2235A which is the Square back bucket at only $40-$50 more. However I can't find...

    Kubota RTV500 Noise while in 4wd

    So I've had my RTV a little over a month now and I've used 4wd quite a bit with the rain here in the South. I've noticed more noise from the front end while in 4wd compared to 2wd. The noise doesn't sound bad but I'm curious if this is common with the RTV 500's? If not I'll bring to the dealer...

Looks to me like a cheap thin plastic box worth $30. I noticed all the room under the hood would be good for storage thus...

    Bad Boy ZT Elite at TSC

    Actually the 2014 has the New Kohler 7000 series engines on them and a few updates to the overall mower as well. The 2013 models if you can still find them have the older courage which is why you can get $500 off them from TSC. I'm buying one (from the dealer) tomorrow but I think i'm going to...

    Adding FEL to my L3200..Opinions on Brand

    Opinion on price for a L3240 I found

    So I had a L3240 fall into my lap sort of speak and I'm thinking about selling my l3200.

It has...
