Kubota Tractor Corporation has announced new models to its ZD Series and F Series commercial mower lines with the introduction of the ZD1611 zero-turn mower and F3710 front-mounted mower. The new ZD1611 will begin shipping to authorized Kubota dealerships later this month and the F3710 will be available later this spring.
“With the ZD1611 and F3710, we’re bringing two powerful mowers to the market for commercial operators to get more done this season,” said Tom Vachal, Kubota senior turf product manager. “Both of these new mowers replace the top-of-the-line model in each series and operators are really going to appreciate the power, outstanding cutting performance and reliability they provide, and what commercial cutters have come to expect from Kubota mowers.”
ZD1611: New common rail engine
The new ZD1611 replaces the ZD1511 in Kubota’s ZD Series of commercial zero-turn mowers and features a 30.8-HP* Kubota Common Rail System (CRS) diesel engine that delivers exceptional levels of power, torque and reliable performance. Designed for commercial landscapers and residential users who want a professional-quality cut, the ZD1611 is available in three deck configurations: a 72-inch side-discharge mower, and 60- and 72-inch rear-discharge mowers.
Featuring an air-ride suspension seat with reclining and lumbar support that can be adjusted with the touch of a button, the ZD1611 keeps operators comfortable through even the longest and toughest days on jobs. A 12V power outlet conveniently placed in the cup holder allows for the charging of electronic devices. And for operators who are always on the go, trailering is made easy with a tie-down point on the front axle to provide extra security when transporting the mower.
F3710: Power and performance
The new F3710 replaces the F3990 in Kubota’s F Series of commercial front-mount mowers and is equipped with a 36.9-HP* Kubota Common Rail System diesel engine for fast, powerful and efficient job performance. Available with both side-discharge and rear-discharge pro-commercial mower decks in 60 inches and 72 inches, the F3710’s high lifting capacity provides the versatility to handle an array of implements like a grass catcher, snow blower, rotary sweeper and debris blower, and is compatible with all implements currently available for Kubota mowers.
An LCD digital panel comes standard on the F3710 and provides operators with vital information like Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) level, engine speed, remaining fuel, water temperature and hour meter. Because long hours on the job can take a toll on operator efficiency, a deluxe high-back seat with four separate adjustments for weight control, lumbar support, back angle and arm rests helps keep operators comfortable and productive all day long.
