    The kubota appears to fall between the x500 and x700 Deere's. Haven't tried out the Kubota steering but it would be good to try driving it up a steep slope in a sharp turn to see how well it works out.

    Just from the specs the Kubota is lighter and I consider that a good thing for mowing. The new Kubota adjustable seat looks very good too.
    The Deere is about 30% faster, 400 lbs heavier, electro hydraulic pto clutch, more hp and hdap 26 12 12 tires.

    Gets down to personal preference imo, I bought the Deere but think the Kubota unit looks very good too.

    The Deere x749 is what I have and I meant 30% faster, this series has a top speed of 8.5mph. It won't be as fast as your 930A but it will handle the other maintenance tasks to keep up a lawn.

    I must have missed that thread.

    If he already has a ZTR, why is he considering a riding tractor?
