Kubota Turns to Propane For New Commercial Mower

ZP330 comes in 5- and 6-foot widths with 31 horsepower on LPG.

Published on: Jun 8, 2012

Kubota is introducing the ZP330 mower to its commercial Z-Series lineup, and is powering it with propane.

The clean burning mower carries rebates from Kubota and the Propane Education and Research Council.

The new ZP330 zero-turn-radius mower features a 31 horsepower three-cylinder liquid-cooled liquid propane gas engine for reduced CO2 emissions and fewer maintenance stops. The ZP330 is available with 60-inch and 72-inch decks and qualifies for a Kubota $400 rebate, along with a $1000 rebate from the Propane Education Research Council (PERC).

The deck design on the Z-Series Kubotas features a 6.5 inch deep deck housing with unique baffles to generate high suction for a defined cut and lots of airflow for effective discharge of clippings. Also, the deck is shaft driven with a hydraulic wet-type PTO clutch -- eliminating the hassle of broken and stretched drive belts.
