Default Kubota GR series mowers

I'm thinking of getting something a little larger than my T2080 with 42 inch deck to mow the yard. Diesel and power steering and a 54 inch deck. I have a BX2350 but its too big to make tight turns and easily get around all the flower beds, under and around the trees and shrubs, etc . .

I'm looking at some used GR's but I'm not sure about the different models and any problems they may have. Theres several used 2100's and some 2110's around that look good and have low hours. The current model is the 2120 and theres a couple used available too. AllI've looked at have under 450 hours and seem to be in good shape. I've heard rumors about transmission problems with the 2100's that was fixed with the introduction of the 2110.

The used 2100's are $3,500 to $4,500, the 2110's are around $5,000 and the used 2120's are $6,000 and $6,900. A new 2120 is a little north of $9,000. The 2100 is @2005/2006, the 2110 is @2007/2010, 2120 is 2011 and up.

Anyone have any ideas of things to watch for?

Trying to reach a friend of mine. Awhile back, Kubota made a G series and a GR series. Hoping he recalls the details but my memory is telling me the G series was better than the GR series at the time.

How much do you need to mow? I'll always suggest a ZTR over a tractor if you have more than an acre. I had a good sized Simplicity tractor and it took me almost 2.5 hours to mow. I traded it for a ZTR and it now takes me about 45-50 minutes.

I'll 2nd the ZTR option over the GR. Kubota for diesel ..or Scag for gas ...but there are a whole lot of gas options, I just know Scag and am happy with it.

A friend just got a Scag and had issues with wet areas and hilly areas. Got stuck due to all the rain we've had. He upgraded the tires to AG type. Works great ..but has to be a bit rougher on the grass. I'd guess you have to be a bit more careful turning so you don't tear up the lawn.

Sorry no help on the GR question Jim. Is a ZTR a possibility for you on your place? They do save time and make mowing a little more fun but ...sometimes they are just not the answer.
