TORRANCE, Calif., May 29, 2014 — Kubota Tractor Corp. introduces a new member to its Z300 Series zero-turn mower fleet with the ZD326H. Designed for turf care professionals and large property owners alike, the new diesel model is built Kubota-tough to handle long days of dedicated landscaping with ease. With a perfect balance of performance, efficiency and comfort, the ZD326H and its newly designed 72-inch shaft driven commercial mower deck will quickly rise to the top of an operator’s must-have list.
“With this addition, our Z300 Series zero-turn mower line is an affordable choice for landscapers, groundskeepers and large property owners who want deluxe comfort features,” says Christine Chapman, turf product manager for Kubota. “With its 72-inch mower deck and the legendary quality and efficiency of its Kubota diesel engine, the ZD326H is the best value diesel zero-turn mower in the market.”
A Cut Above the Rest in Performance and Efficiency
Kubota’s popular 72-inch mower deck has been re-designed for the ZD326H, engineered specifically to increase power and efficiency while ensuring excellent cutting performance. The welded deck is 6 inches deep and features an advanced baffle design for a precision cut, while maintaining sufficient airflow for even spread of clippings. The cutting height can be easily adjusted from 1 to 5 inches, in .25-inch increments. The end result is a clean, professional cut in less time.
Durable Kubota Engine Built for Power and More Torque
The new ZD326H features a greater engine displacement of 1123 cubic centimeters, delivering more torque to manicure large areas with strength and efficiency. The new model boasts a 26-horsepower liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine and a heavy-duty twin hydrostatic transmission (HST) with a wet-type power-take-off clutch for reliable and smooth operation. Kubota-engineered diesel engines are recognized throughout the industry as the top diesel engine choice with an unmatched reputation for durability and performance.
Even Big Jobs Can Be Enjoyable
Kubota knows that when it comes to mowing large areas, operator comfort is equally as important as power and efficiency. The Kubota ZD326H features a high-back deluxe suspension seat, hydraulic deck lift and a hands-free parking brake on a large, ergonomic operator platform. Maintenance is hassle free with an integrated hydraulic maintenance lift and semi-pneumatic “flat-free” front caster tires. With a 12.9 gallon fuel tank capacity, operators can enjoy more hours of continuous, comfortable use with minimal downtime for refueling.
