 B7100D What does the D stand for?

Been looking to buy owner's, service and parts manuals on eBay and many show a model B7100D. My hood decal only says B7100. Does the D simply stand for Diesel? I've also seen B7100HST which I have assumed stands for HydroStatic Transmission.
Any insight much appreciated.
Paul

DT would be a gear drive.

 B7100D What does the D stand for?

Trivia time, I was told by a Kubota PR person that the "D" or "DT" (they use both terms) mean Direct or Direct Transmission, referring to the direct gear drive. He said it was just another example of Japanese grammar written in English.

Kind of like "Caution: Hands must be kept to a minimum.", a direct quote from the owner's manual for one of our units, it is actually trying to warn people not to touch hot engine parts.

Best of luck.

There were some choice phrasings in late '60's Japanese motorcycle manuals too. Honda manuals showed evidence of the employment of real translators but some Yamaha shop manuals took an interpreter. However, my favourite came from the instructions from one of those ether filled drinking birds. It said ''Warning: Pressure are going up when high heat is touched.' Dang! How you supposed to figure from the instructions that you're not supposed to start diesels with them.
