Ultimate Operator Station
Grasshopper’s Ultimate Operator Station™ features our ComfortZone™ seat, which eliminates jostles and jolts. Coil-spring suspension, coupled with a fully padded high-back seat with padded armrests and variable-density foam cushion, erase fatigue, while iso-mounting smoothes the ride, allowing operators to stay comfortably in control at faster mowing speeds, while the View-Eze™ console puts every operational control within easy reach of the operator.
Access-Eze™ design simplifies maintenance with fewer than 10 grease points and easy top-side access to belts and filters. Long intervals between transmission fluid changes (up to 1,000 hours), a maintenance-free sealed battery, and a removable rippled screen (for liquid-cooled models) make maintenance even easier.
Hydra-Smooth™ Dual-Lever Steering
Originated by Grasshopper, dual steering levers are the basis for easy steering and maneuverability. Hydra-Smooth™ foam padded dual steering levers are soft to the touch, dampened for quick, intuitive and smooth as silk response, and are 80% less strenuous than old-fashioned steering systems for increased comfort. The standard ComfortReach™ “no tools” lever adjustment allows for a custom fit for any-sized operator.
Low center of gravity
LCG configuration provides improved traction and terrain-hugging operation; when coupled with low-pressure tires (standard on select models), you get a ride that is unmatched in the industry.
GrassMax™ Blade System
Grass Max™ heat-treated, forged-steel blades are 1/4-inch thick and through-hardened to stay sharp longer. It’s all about the blade of grass in contact with the mower blade. The GrassMax™ Blade System lets you select a blade for a high-profile location or one for a rougher cut, with excellence in all ranges between.
Vigilant Operator Presence System™
Combines standard low-profile ROPS and adjustable seat belt, dampened steering levers that return to neutral from forward and reverse, and a system of interlock switches that shuts down the engine when the operator leaves the seat while the PTO is engaged or the levers are in drive position.
Grasshopper mowers are designed to reduce the mower’s weight and increase its durability, without added layers of steel for superb agility and maneuverability with a light footprint. Anvil-edged DuraMax® decks feature heavy-gauge, formed steel construction and a 1/2-inch-thich reinforced, angled leading edge (52-inch decks and larger). Massive 8-inch spindle flanges anchored to double layers of robotically welded formed steel in a 6-bolt pattern spread the force of impact for greater strength.
G2 Hydrostatic Transmissions
Long-lasting design-matched hydrostatic transmissions with CoolFan™ hydro cooling system provide a smoother ride and less maintenance – up to 1,000 hours between service intervals – and contribute to forward mowing speeds up to 10.5 mph.
Tough-as-nails powder-coated finish is fusion-bonded for chip and rust resistance.
Other standard features include
Heavy-duty remote-mounted air filter with replaceable element, turf tires, disc brakes, hour meter and adjustable cup holder.
