Kubota makes a couple, or used to. I have a B4200 but it is more of a garden tractos, 4WD and hydrolics. Belly mower 44" and locking diffy. I cut a lot of grass and brush with it, but not on my front lawn. They used to make some smalled lawn tractors. Don't know the model numbers. Check Craig's list or Ebay.

That's what I'm trying to find out. What older models (like 1985-2000) did John Deere make with diesels. I might be in the market for a lawn mower and want a JD diesel but I don't wanna get into a compact tractor, I'd like to stay lawn tractor size. However the problem is when I'm searching there isn't an option on Machine Finder to search by fuel type, only model number.

Son has a JD455 and really likes it. Pertty HD for a GT. In addition to the mmm he has an fel mounted and has but not mounted yet a rear pto. It really sips fuel.

I worry about that all wheel steer. Things like that I can't help think of it as one more thing to break
