That engine configuration has been discontinued. Anything that it was installed in will be/has been repowered and rebadged.
there's too much negative aura surrounding the B3350, ZD1511 and F3960.

I heard Kubota would have a 40hp 3cyl from a B series lawn tractor to replace the 4cyl Turbo in their Zero

I’d love to own a 40hp zero with a 84” single deck ;)

I spoke with a local area rep and he said the ZD1511 was being equipped with a new motor and may be out next season. He also said the new one will be bullet proof and use def fluid for emissions. Currently being tested I’m told. We’ll see I guess.

Surprising a DEF equipped engine will be installed in a chassis that size with that low a HP requirement. SCR treatment is unusual (unheard of) below 75 hp.
Frankly, I'll believe it when I see it. The rep probably said it will use a DPF. That would be more common for a Kubota of that general power level.

I could be wrong, but I believe the zd1511, B3350, and F3690 (?) all used mechanical injection and dpf, which was problematic.
I suspect the replacement will use computer controlled injection with the same dpf type system.

You guys mean F3690, right?
I was down mid state looking at a baler and saw a new F3990 with 72” commercial deck. Salesman said it was $27,000+
I mean thats the same as a new Jeep Wrangler!
