Kubota introduces new zero-turn mower


January 31, 2011

Kubota has produced industry-leading commercial grade zero-turn mowers
since 2001, and historically the larger horsepower models have been
diesel. Listening to its customers' demand for gasoline models in the
higher horsepower market, Kubota has released the ZG332 models.

The new 32 horsepower Kubota gasoline engine takes the legendary bulletproof diesel block and modifies it for gasoline. kubotamowerwebA unique advantage gained with this block design is the level of torque to the transmission and drive wheels. Being liquid-cooled, an advantage over all others on the market, long days of mowing is not a concern for these models. 

Kubota’s heavy duty integral twin hydrostatic transmission (HST) is shaft driven from the engine. This transmission is designed for continuous activity featuring a hydraulic deck-lift valve, wet type TPO clutch, and nearly 12.3 L capacity assuring simple, reliable and cool operations.

Looking to the mower decks, Kubota's own designed and manufactured Pro Commercial Series will fit the bill. Select either a 60” or 72” cut width and you are off to a productive day of mowing. These fabricated mower decks are made from premium seven-gauge steel and feature cast steel pulleys, double v-belt (another Kubota exclusive), greasable spindle assemblies, all powered by Kubota’s own hydraulic wet clutch PTO.  The deep deck 6.5” and baffle design efficiently generates high suction for a defined cut, while maintaining strong airflow for even side discharge.
