 ZD21 vs JD777

Loking at either a Kubota ZD21, JD 777, or a Cub Cadet Tank. All With 60" decks. Has anyne owned and or compared these machines? The "Tank" is about 1200 dollars less than the Kubota with the Deere in the middle. The Zd looks like a well built machine. The 777's frame looks a little light. The Cub looks well built also but why the price difference? The diesel engine perhaps? Tank you for any and all responses.

Look at the mower drive belt on the Kubota, look at the pulleys and the shaft length and bearing location. Driveshafts!!! Hydraulic wet clutch engagement of the mower vs an electric pto clutch. Hydraulc deck lift, with a built in front jack. Do you need something with a short life span or desire something better built for less long term cost and choose to keep it for a longer time?

I mow about 5 acers. I am looking for the most durable. How about parts availbility? I don't like down time. My dealer is fairly close and reputable. So I'm not too concerned about service, but are reasonably priced?

Kubota is a very good unit, parts if not in stock are only 2 to 3 days away in most cases.

I my self have never seen a major failure on these machines and any thing that did pop up we normally had the part in stock so it was just a matter of changing it out.

The ZD series runs some big tires on the back that seem to level ruts and irregularities as good as units with suspension.
