    This kubota G1800 would work perfectly for you. It only has 850 hours and is $2500. Mine has 1800 hours and still runs strong. Parts are readily available through Kubota and deck blades/belts are available on eBay. Both the transmission and mower deck are driven by a shaft. The deck is hydraulically actuated and the HST transmission has a cruise control that's easy to operate.

    I have a Ford LGT14D that has a 48" deck with a 3 cyl diesel.
    Many parts are becoming obsolete though. Plenty of power and a great cut.

    [QUOTE=855atty;3301272]Does Yanmar make the motors in the x700 Deeres?



    I just want something smaller and light enough to not worry about crushing my septiic drainfield where the grass grows best.

    QUOTE]


    The Deeres' below the 4000 series are all equipped with Yanmar diesels and the Kawasaki gas engines.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the septic drain field as none of these small tractors are heavy enough to be a problem. If you have soft spots where the field is then you may not have enough field for the uses. Percolation tests are used to determine how much field length is required but there are lots of poorly constructed systems everywhere.

    It is slow compared to other mowers, limited attachments and has smaller tires. Not nearly as popular as the Deeres are. I think the BX and larger Kubotas' are great tractors but feel their riding mowers fall a little short of the competition. I would definately consider one if you can get a great deal on it. I will be going out to the ranch on Sunday morning and will measure the overall width on my x749 which has the 48" deck on it.

    Early models had issues with the drivetrain, rear axle hydro/transmission and the clutch cables going from front axle to the rear axle clutches.

    Have a G2160-60 and it is a good mower, drives like a sports car compared to the BX2230.
