Kubota's All-New ZD Pro Deck
A Tough Mower Deck for Commercial Applications TORRANCE, Calif.- Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) introduces an all-new fabricated ZD-Pro Deck designed especially for the commercial cutter and landscape maintenance contractor. Matched with the ZD21 and ZD28 zero turn mowers, the seven gauge steel deck offers excellent cutting performance in all grass varieties and conditions. The shaft driven, low noise ZD Pro Deck is available in a 60-inch or 72-inch cutting width. The ZD Pro deck is 5.5-inches deep allowing more airflow circulation through the blades enabling a higher quality cut at a faster rate. The 'cut and re-cut' system provides smaller grass clippings and generates a cleaner appearance than the traditional 'cut and throw' system. The cutting height can be adjusted from 1 to 5-inches in half-inch increments. The double V-belt with heavy cast iron pulleys allows the deck to tolerate tough mowing conditions. Swivel anti-scalp rollers glide across grass reducing turf damage. The deck's parallel linkage mounting allows for easy mower deck removal and the operation requires no tools. The ZD Pro deck converts to a dedicated mulching system with three individual chambers. The ZD Pro Deck mounts on the Kubota ZD zero turn mowers - the ZD 21 (21 hp) and ZD 28 (28 hp). The ZD are powered by quiet, low vibration 3-cylinder liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engines. Hydraulic multi-disc wet PTO clutch, hydraulic deck lift, and pivoting front axle are standard on the ZD Series. And, there is a built-in mower lift for easy deck maintenance. In addition to the ZD Series, Kubota Tractor Corporation markets a complete line of tractors up to 98 PTO horsepower, along with a line of performance-matched implements, construction equipment, pumps and generators, consumer lawn and garden equipment and commercial turf products.
