    Got a Kubota 5600 HST 3cyl Diesel lawnmower - engine and chassis is too heavy for the steering, so wears the pinion gear badly - got a 80 Datsun manual steering box, gonna put that in there with a arc wrench, bet that sucker will steer from now on - plus, got the kit to overhaul the engine, as excessive blowby was making it hard to start - also got a little perkins turbo to put on it, just for the novelty - dunno if that HST will hold the increased Diesel power, but the turbo whistle and a short stack should set it apart from the average lawnmower in suburbia

    Should have just got ya a B3030 Cab model with a belly deck, with the AC running during the summer time the neighbors will look at you with envy, I can do 4 acres in 65 minutes,

    let me know how the turbo works out, when my goes out of warranty I might try that on mine, hopefully it will have a waste gate...

    I've got a ZD21 Kubota with a 60" deck, I can mow about 4 acres an hour, if the grass is not to heavy. It will run 9 mph. No Cab though.
