Indiana Columbus, IN
I mow 5 acres every week on our farm. I am on my second Grasshopper (wore the first one out after many years and hours). It does a terrific job, and it's like riding a Cadillac. I have a diesel as I have to pull up some hills. I have ridden other mowers, but I am soooo glad we spent the money and bought the best!
Karen B Amarillo, TX
This mower works like the time God sent the Plague into Egypt. The Grasshoppers took over the land. Our grasshopper takes over our yard and even sweeps off the sidewalks!
Karla T Emporia, KS
Well, I love my 72-in,430 diesel,rear discharge Grasshopper. I’ll tell you why. We have our own lawn service. It’s wonderful to mow and not have grass fly all over you. I call my Grasshopper the Cadillac because it is “So much Mower”! It has the Grammer seat and I can mow a lot of grass comfortably! I have mowed with a lot of other mowers and I love the ride of a Grasshopper. I love the zero turn experience. After you mow with a zero turn Grasshopper nothing else compares. I mow a lot of grass every mowing season and my Grasshopper makes it easier. Well, that's my story of why my Grasshopper is “So Much Mower”, hope you enjoy it! Happy Mowing to ya all! P.S. I believe I have exercised excellent judgement in the purchase of my Grasshopper mower!
Lisa S Opelika, FL
This mower was actually chosen for my husband because we have several lots to cut and he could hardly move from a backache for a couple of days after mowing, but as he began using the mower we realized it was perfect for our handicapped son Mark, he has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bones). Mark has several rental properties and always had to have his dad cut the grass and this mower with the floating seat allows him to ride and not bounce around. The only thing he can’t do is lower the cutting deck. This mower is much more than a mower it has become another step to independence for our son. Now, it's time for him to get his own!
Jimmy C Enterprise, AL
After retiring from Natural Resource Conservation Service, I began a small lawn care service. I needed a mower I could depend on to get the job done quick and efficient. Grasshopper fit the bill! I own two Grasshoppers and would not use any other kind.
Phillip G Sibley, MO
My 227 midmount mower is the best! I purchased it in 2008. What a great investment! I can mow my 5 acres in less than 2 hours. Then I can go mow my church yard of 2 acres in less than 1 hour. I have over 500 hours on my mower and I never have had any breakdowns it is a reliable machine. The mower leaves a nice finish and a great looking stripe. I will never buy any mower brand besides Grasshopper.
Diana M Covington, LA
When my husband was deciding to purchase a new mower a couple of years ago, I told him that I wanted an ultimate driving mower. I enjoy mowing our lawn and I knew some things I wanted out of a mower. I expected it to be reliable, comfortable, fun to drive, and of course most of all to have a great looking lawn when I was finished my “drive”. After a couple of days of research, my husband and I drove to a local lawn mower dealership who sold Grasshoppers. After talking with the owner and taking a “test drive”, we were sold. The Grasshopper is just “so much more mower” than any other we have ever owned and it makes the job so fast and easy. I almost prefer driving my mower than driving my car and our 32 year old one acre lawn has never looked better.
Elijah J Midland City, AL
No one loves to cut grass, but every one loves cutting with the best. My 428D Grasshopper came with an hydraulic deck and 28hp Kubota diesel engine. It's fast and very powerful. So now you have a choice: you can cut and ride with the best or stay back with the rest. My Grasshopper make my grass nice to look at.
Robert W Center, KY
I am 65 and on my third Grasshopper. I was convinced from my first ride that this is the only mower for me, I mow about 3 acres around the house and farm (even fence lines). It mows and trims with one pass and gives me time to fish with my grandsons. Since I have gotten older and with arthritis the air ride seat makes my day a lot easier and the rear discharge is great around buildings and trees. I would not consider anything but a Grasshopper.
Angel H Hodgenville, KY
My Grasshopper has made me the happiest ever. I can have my huge yard mowed within 1 hour when it use to take me 3. I couldn't be happier with the Grasshopper.
Don G Bellefontaine, OH
My wife and I have “His and Her” 2012 Grasshoppers. We mow 5+ acres on our farm near Bellefontaine, Ohio. Our first Grasshopper was purchased in 1980. The Grasshopper gave us so much power and it was so easy to use and efficient. With a lot of area to mow, when the time to do the job was cut in half, the only mowers we have used for the last 32 years have been Grasshoppers. Our property has many trees and a lot of landscaping. Jean (my wife) uses her 930D (72”cut) front-mount, because the zero-turn feature easily trims this area. I use my 430D(72”cut) mid-mount to mow around the outlying buildings, barnyard, and side ditches. Our local dealer has all of our business as they are very accommodating, have a great supply of parts, and excellent service. We have had very little maintenance on the Grasshoppers, and we find this company the best with which to deal. We are sold on this high quality product, for its easy ride, even cut, low maintenance, and for the decrease in the amount of time the “mower power” of the Grasshopper provides. They can do a great job in a lot less time. Many people compliment us on how well-manicured we keep our farm with the use of the Grasshoppers.
Julius W Folsom, LA
I purchased my first Grasshopper mower, Model 618, with a 48” front mount deck in 1998. In February of 2011, I purchased a Model 620 T equipped with a 52” front mount power fold deck. This machine was purchased from Circle D Lawn Equipment Company located in Covington, LA. The front mount deck eliminates a lot of work with a trimmer. The power fold deck makes the changing of blades very quick and easy. In less than five minutes, I can install a new set of of blades!
Dale D Bismarck, ND
Over the past three decades we have had multiple mowers including John Deere, Cub Cadet, Lawn Boy and finally the best mower by far is our 2011 Grasshopper 735 air cooled Grasshopper with a 70” deck. Our son and his son love to ride the Grasshopper -- with all the proper eye and ear protection, of course! That little two-year-old can grab the handles when seated on his dad’s lap and make it go around in circles. He always asks to ride on “Dampa’s lawnmower!” After using mine, our son bought his own 2008 Grasshopper a 722 diesel model. We have hundreds of trees on approximately seven acres of land that we mow at our cabin, and the Grasshopper has eliminated most of the weed-wacking and I have not had to use my Bobcat with the finish mower. The Grasshopper is "so much mower" than just a lawn mower, it’s saving countless hours of fun that we can now spend with the grandkids!
Sylvester T Otterville, MO
In all my 86 years have never had such an easy mower to operate. I use it all over the farm, and still going strong.
Roger H Washington, IN
I have had 11 Grasshoppers over the years. My lawn is not level, one of the things I like so well is the way the the mower goes with the lay of the lawn and always cuts so nice and even, no matter how uneven. We have a lot of landscaping to mow around with a lot of pine trees with low branches. The deck out in front allows to get under the trees and around landscaping. These are very good mowers and I will continue to have them for my lawn very low maintenance. Thanks, Grasshopper!
David K Live Oak, FL
As a young man working my way through college I worked at Bunton Mowers in Louisville, KY. I enjoyed putting the pieces together like a puzzle and welding them. I learned there what quality was and Bunton does make a quality product. So when my wife and I bought a 10+ acre farm we knew that we needed quality in a mower. We considered a Bunton (among many others). However, we chose a Grasshopper because they have the same quality welds and most of all NO STAMPED parts to deform or rust! After putting over 140 hours on my mower in less then one year I have to say that the Grasshopper exceeds the quality of the Bunton. We made the right decision with, what we consider, our investment, and the only mower we will ever have to purchase again. Thank you all at the Grasshopper team for taking pride in your work and making such a fine product.
Allen H Kalamazoo, MI
I love my Grasshopper mower so much, I bought a second! Not a single break down with the original mower and I expect the same with the new one! They are both easy to use. The construction is excellent. The tip up deck gives easy access to the blades. I had another zero turn mower and it couldn't begin to compare to my Grasshoppers. It doesn't mow (live) here anymore...
Robert L Frostproof, FL
We have owned a grasshopper lawn mower machine for about three years and have used it every day. We use it with gardening, hauling fertilizer, tools, spraying and etc and just transportation. Once we were asked, “What can you say about a Grasshopper Lawn Mower Machine?” It looks like a lawn mower should look. It cranks over and starts when I turn the key. It runs good and has a lot of power. It has a lot of safety features. It is comfortable and easy to operate. It cuts two acres of grass once a week. It does what we need it to do. It turns around like a dolly. Its maintenance is very low. It can park it in a space the same size. What else can we say about a Grasshopper Lawn Mower Machine?
Harlan S Bettendorf, IA
My wife and I love our 727K for its ease of mowing, trimming and with the power lift for cleaning. We have this one at our home where
we mow about two acres. We also have two at one of businesses where we mow about five acres (one a midmount, and one a big diesel), then we have one more frontmount at our shop where we mow about three acres. We are Grasshopper people. Thanks for a great product.
Dennis S New Baden, IL
Our family farm was just awarded a centennial award from the State of Illinois. We hope to keep it in the family for another hundred years and then some. We are hoping our twin grandsons can take some of the workload in the coming years and they can start with using our twin Grasshoppers so Grandma won’t have to mow the grass every week.
Ginger O Murray, KY
There once was a girl named Ginger that loved to mow her lawn but just couldn't seem to find the right one. This quest started in 1988 when she and her husband Kenny married. He first purchased a Snapper and it was way too small. Then he purchased her a John Deere lawn tractor, it was way too slow. Next was a John Deere rear engine lawnmower but the engine would bog down in the grass. Ginger never gave up hope! So, Kenny thought, "I will buy her a Kubota zero turn mid mount deck mower!" With her yard, to include steep inclines and a creek she slid into the creek every week! Kenny, being very tired of being called to rescue her decided to call the Grasshopper Man and he brought over the Grasshopper 725D...Ginger said, ”This is SO MUCH MOWER!” and they all lived happily ever after.
Arthur H Hamden, OH
We have over 5 acres to mow. The grasshopper is fast and efficient! My wife tells me I look sexy mowing the lawn. Not only that, but it saves me time and money. Love it!!!
Whitney R Moro, IL
I love my Grasshopper mower.
#1) The mower goes in close places.
#2) The mower goes up and down hills.
#3) When I have finished mowing my lawn, I have no trimming to do. The front deck on the mower goes in and under bushes.
#4) I love the front deck for what it can do and the fact that is raises up, that makes it easy for cleaning under the deck. Also makes it very easy to sharpen the blades. Also, after mowing it is very safe for me and my son Hunter to go for a ride and cool off.
Ardean S Smithdale, MS
I purchased my Grasshopper in January, 2009. Since I purchased it, all of my friends and neighbors are fascinated with the ease and level of performance of this amazing machine. One of my neighbors had already purchased a Grasshopper, and after watching mine perform, another friend and another neighbor are contemplating buying one. This amazing machine cuts a six acre pasture in one and a half hours, compared to four hours, previously, with my tractor and Bushhog. On a hot day like the ones we are having this summer, that could be a life saver. Those are just some of the reasons that my Grasshopper is “So Much Mower.” It underscores the slogan on the Grasshopper cap that says: “Grasshopper, your next mower.”
Virlon Starr Danville, IL
I am a 79 year old retired farmer and heavy equipment operator. I have had 4 Grasshopper mowers and the mower I have now is a rear discharge mower. I can now mow and not even get dirty. I consider this mower the top of the line. I have always lived on a farm and always mow 3-4 acres, so I have had a lot of mowers in my 79 years. I now mow 4 acres and it only takes me 2 1/2 hours. I have been extremely pleased with all 4 Grasshoppers, but this one is special!!!
Chance W Hastings, NE
I recently upgraded to my second Grasshopper mower. I traded my 2010 616T in for a 2012 725D. I ordered my 725D with the 52 inch powerfold deck and the triple bagger grass catcher. Both of these upgrades have saved me time and allowed me to take on many extra mowing jobs that I was not able to handle with my first mower which was only equipped with a 44 inch manual adjust deck and a twin bagger. My upgrade to the diesel engine allows me to work longer without needing to stop and refuel. It also helps cut back on fuel costs as it is much more efficient than a gas engine. I love how all Grasshopper mowers are well built with steel rather than plastic. They produce a high quality finish cut that keeps my commercial and residential accounts looking great all season long.
Donald R Seneca, SC
I have owned several mowers in the past several years but none gave me the finished excellence that My Grasshopper does. Along with performance, I have the convenience of a tilt deck which not only makes my job much easier but saves me a lot of time sharpening and replacing blades. The placement of 6 grease fittings makes it a fast, effortless service ordeal. Last but not least, the vacuum system goes on and off in just a matter of seconds making it an easy transition for those that want me to pick up the clippings. Dumping the clippings is an easy task while I still remain on the mower. And for those of us that recycle, I feed the clippings to my cows. What a savings in time and money.
Jimmie M Qulin, MO
I have owned Grasshopper Mowers since 1999. This is my second mower. I like the way it mows and the fuel consumption. I like the fact that it mows close and I don’t have to do a lot of trim work. We own 5 acres and most of it is in yard and orchard that I mow. With my first mower I did a lot of custom mowing and all my customers were amazed that I could get the job done so neat and efficient in such a short time.
Edwin S Davenport, IA
When shopping for my lawn machine, I knew I needed a lot of mower. I was looking for a zero turn machine, that satisfied my list of needs; precise and easily adjustable cutting length, elimination of most trimming, no tearing turf on short turns, a front mount enabling me to mow under overhanging shrubs, easy sharpening and maintenance, a next day access to parts and a service center, and a smooth, reliable riding mower that would be a pleasure to operate. After hearing my needs, the dealer had me test mow a Grasshopper 722D and it exceeded all my requirements. I combine the mower with a Grasshopper vacuum system when needed, and after five years use on my four acre lawn, I am completely satisfied and consider this investment an invaluable timesaver. My Grasshopper makes this formerly tedious chore more enjoyable and my acreage has never looked better. Grasshopper, I couldn't ask for more mower! Thanks!
Glenn W Franklin, PA
We like our Grasshopper mower as it has cut our mowing time by almost 1/2 and we like the front deck as we mow around a lot of trees and it makes it so easy. We mow around 11 acres and like the way the mower handles. This is the third Grasshopper we have had. We had one gasoline and now this is the second diesel one we have had. We think there is nothing like a Grasshopper. We have 5 different people who use the mower, and we all like it.
James & Julie P Grand Rapids, MI
Our Grasshopper makes our lives easier and FUN! We mow over 4 acres throughout the spring, summer, and fall while relaxing and soaking up some sun. Then, we use our Grasshopper to snow blow our 1/3 mile long driveway in the sometimes harsh Michigan winters! We actually HOPE it snows so we can suit up and throw some snow. Finding a family member to mow or snowblow is easy because everybody wants to cruise around on our year ‘round toy!
Jesse N Homer, NE
Hello, my name is Jesse. The mower we operate is our 727 Grass Hopper with a Powerfold Duramax 61 deck. I think it has roughly 400 hours on it. This is the second one we have purchased and has been a huge asset. We upkeep roughly 5 acres of land with this weekly and it has proven itself time and time again.
Jim D Shippensburg, PA
I used to mow my 4 acre lawn with a 6’ wide belly mover attached to a 33HP tractor. The belly mower attachment alone weighed over 600 lbs. so, as you can imagine, I only removed the mower deck once per year. I now own a 725D Front Mount Grasshopper 725D with a with a 5’ deck. Not only do I mow in about 1/2 the time but it is so easy to clean the deck and routinely sharpen the blades. The Grasshopper is one of the best purchases I've ever made! The Grasshopper with the vacuum attachment is “SO MUCH MOWER!”
Elaine R Greens Fork, IN
I have “so much mower” since I replaced my husband with a Grasshopper 727! Here are the Top 10 benefits of my 727!
10. Cut my mowing time in HALF, now I can float in the pond on my raft!
9. Less time trimming, mower time for swimming.
8. She rides like air, it sure beats going to the fair!
7. Mower time for R & R, even after waxing the mower AND the car.
6. 8 gallon gas tank means mower time mowing, less time re-fueling.
5. Standard work lights mean no rushed feeling when night falls.
4. No need to worry whether this mower will start each time, Grasshoppers start on a dime!
3. PowerFold deck makes clean up a cinch!
2. No worries if I lose my job, I can start my own lawn care business.
1. I can have my grass and mow it too!
Janet L Adrian, MI
We bought our Grasshopper Mower on November 14th, 2007. My husband couldn't wait to try it out even though it was November! At first I was a little intimidated by this machine but once I learned how to operate it, I was amazed at the ease of handling. We have a lot of trees and the Grasshopper goes right around them with ease. The job of mowing the lawn is no longer dreaded and is done in half the time. The blades are in front of the machine and it’s very easy to raise the blades up and clean the grass out from under them. No more having to go up ramps to clean mower blades. We are very happy with our Grasshopper!
Frank D Hanson, MA
I have 6 acres out of 10 acres which are mowable. Mowing has never been easier than when I purchased my Grasshopper zero turn mower. Nothing stops it, even 16 inch tall green grass is no challange. Come try my mower!!! Regards, Frank
Jonnie W Kokomo, IN
My Grasshopper mower is so much more mower than any other brand I have ever owned. I love the convenience of pushing one switch to raise the deck. It makes cleaning a breeze. This is my fourth one and I will continue to buy only Grasshopper mowers.
Deb S Kenesaw, NE
Easy to maneuver, get around objects, bushes and tree’s! Comfortable seat, easy to get off and on! Can mow the yard faster than with our old tractor style! With the powerfold deck easy to clean and change blades!
Lawrence A Rock Spring, GA
I have 2 acres plus at home and that much more at rental property. The grasshopper makes it so much easier and faster to get the job done.
Jimmy P Mt. Pleasant, TX
My wife and I live on a 238 acre farm in beautiful Northeast Texas, where there is always more to do than there are hours in the day to do it. We are both working jobs off the farm to support the farming habit. My widowed Mother-in-law lives close by and I have taken on the responsibility of mowing her yard also. Both yards are a total of approximately four acres. Prior to buying my Grasshopper, it was taking me over four hours to do the mowing. I can now mow both yards in an hour and a half, leaving me more time for other chores. My Grasshopper Mower, you are Oh “So Much Mower”. With your power and speed, I can really soar. You can circle a tree and spin on a dime. Oh Grasshopper Mower you save me so much time!
Anton B Lena, IL
Using a piece of equipment all year around is important to me for my way of life. The Grasshopper 721DT diesel mower is perfect for my outdoor all year around landscaping needs. Whether I’m using my Grasshopper for snow removal on my drive way, leaf collecting or just manicuring my lawn, it is a joy to operate this powerful and dependable machine through many conditions and seasons. It is particularly nice not having to worry about if it will start and perform to my high expectations.
Grace H Shelbyville, KY
30 Horsepower- 72” deck, precision edge, my new Grasshopper is so much mower. Even with a 72” deck on my new 30 horsepower frontmount mower it does not change the maneuverability around landscaping. My mower handles just as well around a stone in a cemetery as it does in the wide open ground. It continues to give the same manicured cut as the smaller decks. With the adjustable handlebars and the suspension seat it allows for comfort when mowing for extended periods. These are just a few reasons why my Grasshopper is so much mower!!
Carrie H Resseville, WI
As a mother of nine children, my days are filled with many chores and responsibilities. There are those that I dread having to do, such as endless laundry and dirty dishes. But I love my days I get to cut my lawn! My grasshopper lawnmower is one of the best things I've ever received, and it makes cutting the lawn a breeze. We have about 2 acres to cut, including a fruit orchard, and my front mount mower makes cutting around the trees a snap. I love the speed, which cuts the time I need to spend away from the kids in half. I won’t even let my teenagers cut the lawn, that’s Mom’s job!
Frank F Miami, OK
I've owned and operated Swisher, Snapper and Cub Cadet mowers, tractors and zero turn rigs, but when I use my zero turn Grasshopper, “It’s a yard above” all the other mowers. The mower has never let me down when it comes to cutting the high grass or when finish mowing my church's grounds. At times I've even had grasshoppers jump on board and take a ride with me. Like I said this mower is “the best in my book.” You just can’t beat a Grasshopper mower.
Tom C Oak Grove, MO
I have had a lot of mowers and this grasshopper is the best. It has never let me down and cuts great with out any problems. It has a great ride and very reliable. I let a lot of people use this mower and everyone has loved it.
Ken R Cannon Falls, MN
As custodian of Saint Pius V Church my duties include mowing the church grounds as well as the cemetery. When asked by the parish board to look at a new mower, the first thing on my list was to have a rear discharge deck. I compared all the manufacturers and the Grasshopper with its four blade deck for even distribution did the best job. With no grass blown on headstones, buildings or sidewalks, it is the answer to my prayers. The mower has all the power I need and it handles like a dream! With zero turn and mid mounted deck I am always cutting grass which cuts my mowing time almost in half. It has a very even cut so one pass always matches up with the last one. Our dealer has been great with setup and answering any questions. Thank you for such a great machine!!
Brandon D Sale City, GA
My Grasshopper mower is “So Much Mower” because it handles the toughest and biggest jobs that I have. It makes easy work out of what used to be my hardest. It handles the South Georgia heat and humidity and thick Bahia grass that we have to deal with and leaves a professional cut every time. And as you can tell, it totes a big guy while doing it. Thanks Grasshopper!
Jean L Chandler, OK
We returned from vacation and found the “So Much Mower” Grasshopper postcard. So this morning, I put our new 725D to the test. It has amazing power for a most unusual use. We have been planting Chestnut and various Fruit trees on 20’ and 30’ centers in our new Orchard over the past two years! Nearly 16 acres or 900 trees are planted on our rolling hills terrain. The 725D has been awesome to mow between trees and above irrigation. It allows us to mow extremely close to the trees without damaging them or nicking the branches and then raise the mower deck so we can mow over the irrigation drip line emitters without damaging the lines. What a wonderful and very fuel efficient unit. Thanks GRASSHOPPER!
John A Wanda, MN
My wife and I are the proud owners of a 727 Grasshopper mower. We have a three acre lawn at our home at the edge of town. We are also the caretakers of our local church cemetery. There are so many things we love about this machine, just to mention a few:
1. We love the back discharge which protects the monuments at the cemetery.
2. We love how the deck lifts at the push of a button for easy cleaning and maintaining blades.
3. We have many evergreen trees and this front mount glides easily under and around.
Many compliments are paid to us by the people in our town and we are proud owners of our 727 Grasshopper mower!
Leland C Cave City, KY
My family has owned Grasshopper mowers for many years. My father and I both had mowers and mowed our lawns, farm pasture lots and fence rows. When my father passed away in 2010, I needed a stronger mower so I could do all the mowing in less time. I traded dad’s 20 hp and my 18 hp mowers for a powerhouse 35 hp. Now, I can do “So Much Mower” in less time.
Mark W Topeka, KS
My “Goldilocks” story begins with my “Bearish” 9 acres containing numerous fenced trees, bushes, and various ornamental grasses. The AC WD-45, with a 3PT finish mower behind, was too big to mow around all the obstacles and too heavy, which left “Claw” marks in the yard. The Sears garden tractor was more maneuverable but too slow and “Cublike” which left uneven cuts in the yard. My Grasshopper 620 is easy to ride, very maneuverable around the obstacles, covers a lot of ground in a shortened amount of time, and leaves an even cutting surface. I can now get a good night’s sleep and have time for some occasional porridge. In fact, I now feel “Just Right”....and give lots of “Bear” hugs.
Steve G Bluffton, IN
Our Grasshopper frontmount and midmount diesel units keep the OCI Mowing crews running smoothly all day long. With power to spare and excellent fuel efficiency, our Grasshoppers reduce our operating costs while improving productivity.
Don P Friendsville, TN
The features that I enjoy are: the grass is cut evenly at all times, runs very smooth, and sets higher than other mowers which enables you to see all your surroundings at all times. Ever since I got the mower it’s a dream come true, which makes me want to mow more than I have. That makes the Grasshopper so much mower.
Toni R Eustis, NE
Our family has a commercial lawn mowing business, and currently own two 700 series Grasshopper mowers. In August 2011, we added a chocolate lab pup to our family. He immediately loved to spend time with us, and also loved riding on the Grasshoppers with us each time we had lawns that we were needing to mow. We all realize that we have “so much mower” of a mower and dog!
Cheryl H West Fargo, ND
My dad -- Don, 88 years young -- is a retired North Dakota farmer. But as it goes with most farmers, he needed a job to do so appointed himself head ditch-mower. It was imperative for him to contribute to the farm his son Brad took over. He knew he could help achieve a better crop yield by keeping the weeds down in the field. And the best way was to mow the ditches surrounding each field. He’s been doing that with his Grasshopper mower since 2000. And anyone who knows “Donnie K” knows he likes the best. So every three years he upgrades. Now on his 4th generation Grasshopper, he proudly mows tough, nasty growth over rough terrain. And he’s particularly proud of his Grasshopper. He wears his Grasshopper belt buckle and hat every day, including Sundays at church. He even displays a model Grasshopper at his home. You couldn't find a better Grasshopper champion!
HELP! I've been demoted! Since I bought a new Grasshopper lawn mower, I love the way it cuts, handles and takes half the time of our previous lawn mower. However, since my wife got on the new Grasshopper mower (to try it out) I can’t get it back! She now demands she does all of the mowing for our five acres and is looking for more grass to cut. Since we have the new Grasshopper, my wife can cut more grass now than ever, in half the time. She just can’t get enough! However, since I've been demoted from using our new Grasshopper, I have more time to go fishing and riding my motorcycle, while she cruises on her Grasshopper mower!
Karen W Glasgow, MO
I had a JD rider prior to 725DT6. The time to mow with Grasshopper was reduced by one hour. Maneuverability, ease of operation, ease of maintenance and pre-mow check list to assure good running was/is important to me. In addition, clean-up is easy and quick with front-deck lift system. Thank you Grasshopper engineers!
Glen K Mendon, MI
Being 83 years young, I had trouble turning the steering wheel on my lawn mower tractor and wanted something that was easier. I wanted a zero turn mower but didn't want to spend the money for a lawn mower alone, so I looked at the Grasshopper because of the added implements that it had also. I bought the 723 with the 52” deck so I could get between some of my trees and shrubs. I started mowing and my wife (photo) watched while I “played” in the yard. She thought I had too much fun so she wanted to try the mower. She had so much fun that I haven’t been able to mow the yard since. She beats me to the mower every time. Hopefully, I buy the snowthrower later.
Earl S Raymond, IL
I have had Grasshopper mowers since they came out. I have owned 3 until I bought this 61” new Grasshopper which makes 4. I love this new 61” with front deck which raises up. Also, it is amazing the power my new one has. I wouldn't own anything except a Grasshopper. We have a large lawn 2 hours to mow.
Brad C Ellensburg, WA
My Grasshopper is the key to my 5-acre yard. I formerly had horses on my property, which ruined my grass. Well I kicked the horses to the curb, bought my Grasshopper, and now I have one of the largest, prettiest lawns in town. It’s perfect for soccer games, barbeques, and playing with my rambunctious dog for hours. None of that would be possible without my Grasshopper Mower!
Judy G Roland, OK
My husband and I mow several acres and have for 25 years. Our local Grasshopper dealer encouraged us for years to invest in a Grasshopper. We finally purchased one 5 or 6 years ago. My husband continued using our old mower and we soon began to notice that I was mowing so much more grass in the same amount of time. We were going to upgrade this year but our original mower is such good condition we decided to keep it and purchased another Grasshopper. We now consider Thursday a date night. We quickly get our yard work done and now thanks to our Grasshoppers we have time for another date night because we no longer have to spend our weekends mowing our yard. We have one 700 series and one 900 series. We love our Grasshoppers!

This is a story between husband and wife and their lawnmowers and sewing machines. He said she had too many sewing machines when she wanted to trade up to a new model. One day she started to count how many sewing machines she had in their married life, and she counted 7 machines. When counting his lawn mowers, she found that he had 7. His last mower is a Grasshopper and her sewing machine is a Husqvarna Diamond. These will be their last machines for both of them, as long as they keep working as they are both in their seventies. She sews a lot for charity and contest and he mows 2 acres of lawn. When the last mower was delivered, he was one ahead of his wife but 6 months later, she got a new sewing machine.

I have a small farm; I mow about 10 acres with a lot of fence rows, creek banks, and buildings. I started with a traditional riding mower, then moved up to a respectable brand of zero-turn mid mount. This was a significant move up in mowing time and convenience. Mowing obstacles poses a challenge to mid-mounts, so I was discussing that with my dealer. He convinced me to try the Grasshopper frontmount 929D. My gosh, it was love at first try! It is so much easier and faster to tackle the challenging obstacles and then breeze through the open areas. Now I have to fight my wife for the fun of mowing with the Grasshopper.
Matthew B Lorida, FL
I use the 930D Front mount 72 inch. Let me tell you I love this mower! Here at the Palms Estates in Lorida, Florida, we have 30 acres of land to mow that includes a RV park and 75 homes plus fields. Anyone that knows Central Florida can tell you that the mowing season really never ends. We mow all year. The summer months are where this mower really shines! I can mow the whole park in about 4 days! This is truly amazing. We used to have 2 mowers and could hardly keep up with the grass now one Machine the 930D can do the job of 2 mowers. WOW is all I can say!!

My Grasshopper is so much MOWER fun than working!
Crystal S Covington, LA
I love my Grasshopper 223. I have 3 acres and it used to take half the day to cut grass. I’d have to cut part of it with the riding mower - part of it with a bush hog and then touch up with the push mower. Agh!!! Now I can do my whole 3 acres in about 2 hours!! Yay! Love it! And I only need the push mower in a few places. Now my hubby comes home to a fresh cut yard and we can just hang out and relax. Thanks for a great machine.
Ellen P Union Beach, NJ
we have so much grass to mow and with our 727k, we can handle this machine easily without any problems. i wish we had purchased this machine sooner, as it would have saved us time and money. everyone who sees our machine loves it. it’s a great mower.
Alton J Owatonna, MN
I’ve always loved mowing grass & when I retired I decided that I deserved the best lawn mower there was. I didn’t do my homework at first and ended up with a couple different mowers before I found my “DREAM” mower: my Grasshopper!!!! I’ve been through a lot in my life including losing my dad at 11 and being in the Korean War. I learned early on that quality will long be remembered after the price is forgotten and the Grasshopper speaks for itself!! And I like to wear only my Sunday best while on my Grasshopper!!! Thank You!
Tim S St. Peters, MO
My grasshopper mower is a wonderful mower due to the easy access to the blades and the stunning look it gives the lawns....The bigger the mower the more lawns I can finish faster! This mower is great!!!
Rodney H Brewster, MN
Our Grasshopper mower is so much easier to handle around the many trees we
have on our 2 1/2 acre estate.
Leroy W Keytesville, MO
Our first 723K Grasshopper mower came complete with a 61 inch PowerFold Deck. We purchased it on April 6, 2008. We mow 6 1/2 acres weekly at our home site, plus approximately 2 1/2 more acres on a commercial location in town. This includes one business location, storage units, and one rental property over the past 3 1/2 + years. The mower is very heavy built with a smooth ride and a very nicely cut lawn with speed. Our dealer services our lawn mower every year before we begin the season. And it's cleaned after every mowing. It is great to have the powerfold deck, which makes it much easier to clean!
Jared D Paris, TX
Now that I have a Grasshopper, I don’t have to mow anymore. I taught my son to mow and he loves to do it. The only bad part is, I don’t get to mow anymore...
Tana K Buckingham, VA
In the beginning, there was grass and my man said, “I must cut it.”
He bought a mower and his delight was in his freshly cut lawn. As his kingdom grew, he desired get it done faster. So, we went to test drive a zero-turn mower. I whined that with my left/right handicap I couldn't possibly operate a mower with steering handles instead of a steering wheel. But, I gave it a whirl, literally, until Mower Guy yelled to pull both handles back!
Years passed and my man said, “I need to get it done even faster.” And, he bought a Grasshopper. It was much bigger than our mini-mower, but he assured me I would love it. After taking just one afternoon to mow the yard, my walking paths, and around our Christmas trees, I was smitten. Reckon there’s any chance Grasshopper could make a zero-turn household vacuum?
Karen F Rison, AR
I never wanted a “zero” turn mower because I didn’t think I was coordinated enough to handle it. Ever since we bought the Grasshopper I have been on it and have never stopped mowing. It handles the lawn, cemetery, church yard, neighbors yard, and even between our chicken houses with no trouble whatever so ever. I would never consider using anything else but a Grasshopper zero turn mower.
Mike E Fort Valley, GA
I’m 75 years young. I purchased my 27 horse power 61” cut Grasshopper 6 years ago. It looks like new and runs as good as the day I purchased it. I mow a little over 6 acres and with 50 plus pine trees my Grasshopper allows me to glide around them with ease. Had I any idea this workhorse was so powerful and easy to use I would have brought one years ago. The model which is a 227 stays in the garage while my car sits in the driveway. Nothing is too good for my Grasshopper.
Jill G Hildreth, NE
My name is Jill from Hildreth, NE. I work at Nelson Lawn Service, Don Nelson was my boss. June 11, 2012 he had a hip replacement and then I turned into the “Boss." This is my 7th year working with Don and Grasshopper lawn mowers. I now service two 729 mowers with 52” decks. We mow 10 cemeteries, 8-10 country yards and about 50 town yards. We started in April and since then it has got hot and dry in our part of Nebraska. My 729 with grass catcher is a hard working and excellent mower. We put about 500 hours a year, per mower. I start mowing in April and pick-up leaves into December some years.
Jeremy J Neosho, MO
Dale and Caroljane Reneau are 2nd generation Grasshopper owners. Caroljane’s father bought this 1210 Grasshopper new in 1979. When he passed in 2010 Caroljane inherited it from him. Dale has mowed commercially for years and has always felt Grasshopper is unmatched in quality, performance and comfort. He bought a 721D in 1998 and ran it commercially for 10 years until he traded up to a 930D in 2008. Dale stated “I love the features of the 930D and have never been happier." Caroljane agreed, “We plan on passing these Grasshoppers to our children.” This will make the 1979 1210 a 3rd generation mower! Now that’s a Grasshopper!
Sylvan L Hornick, IA
I have had my Grasshopper for 5 years. My two sons liked it so much they each bought one. They bought 2 735 front mounts. I clean people driveways in the winter with it too. I love my Grasshopper.
Kevin F Greenville, OH
One of my employees, David Kessler, passed away in April 2009. He was our commercial mowing foreman who took pride in his mowing and of his 61” Grasshopper 700 series. He would not mow with anything else but Grasshopper...It was the most comfortable and did the best job of any mower he had ever mowed with. Dave lost his 2 yr battle of cancer, but never missed a day of jumping on his Grasshopper to mow. Cancer could not keep him down! He and his family loved a photo of him on the Grasshopper so much that he asked for it to be engraved on his tombstone...and yes he got his wish. So, thank you, Grasshopper for putting a smile on Dave’s face still today and forever!

In the year two thousand and ten, I found myself wondering what life had in store for me. I was about to retire form the Marine Corps with twenty-eight years of service. Those years had taken their toll on my body. I never thought I would consider myself labeled as disabled but that where I ended my career: a Disabled Veteran. But I consider myself lucky I still have all my limbs and my mind still works well. If I could just control the pain, life would be great. The big question now is how am I going to take care of myself much, the house, dog and the yard. I had purchased a small house with some land prior to my retirement, I knew there was no way in this world I could push a mower to keep my yard cut and looking good. I asked some friends about what type of mowers they would recommend. I was told about different makes and models but one stood out: “The Grasshopper.” And my Grasshopper was perfect!!! My yard needs lots of work but with my Grasshopper it is easy to maintain and so is my mom’s. I’m not the only one that loves the Grasshopper...my girlfriend finds it easy to operate and has fun cutting the yard. I even caught her mowing the lawn with curlers in her hair before going to work one day and for pay back she snapped a picture of me mowing still in my pajamas. I was feeling good that day. I just wanted to mow. Thanks Grasshopper!
Ron B Calmar, IA
My Grasshopper mower is more mower than I have ever had. I cut a lot of lawn with my storge rentals and rental properties the 72 inch deck with rear discharge offers no windrowing and the blowing of grass on windy days. The 32 horse diesel engine provides plenty of power in tall or wet grass with half the fuel consumption of regular gas engine. The ride and the noise level is the most comfortable I have ever had in a mower. The midmount series offers a rollover feature and close trim around
all objects. This is a must mower for all users large or small. Thanks, Ron.
Butch J Fort Smith, AR
Our original mower was a John Deere and it took us 5-6+ hours to mow our 2.5 acres every week. We endured that for over 6 years until a professional lawn/landscape business owner and friend first recommended Grasshopper to us (about 7
years ago) as that is all he uses in his business here in Fort Smith. We have been thanking him ever since! When we purchased the Grasshopper, the time we spent on the lawn decreased by over 50%!!!! We LOVE our Grasshopper! Also, with the zero turn radius, we eliminated a lot of trimming time and trouble by being able to cut small and close areas we could not get to before!! My wife volunteers to cut much more often...says she doesn't get near as hot because there is always a nice breeze when going full throttle!! We recently downsized to a 3/4 acre lot and we are down to an hour! We love our GRASSHOPPER!
Robert H Verona, WI
My 82-year-old Dad added XM Radio with a speaker to his Grasshopper mower because the mower runs so quiet and smooth. He looks forward to mowing his 3 to 4 acres every week. The mower does such a good job. The compliments he gets gives him great pride in mowing with his Grasshopper!
Billy R Mayslick, KY
I've been mowing for as long as I can remember and my Grasshopper 725DT6 is so much more of a mower than anything I've ever owned! It cuts the acre yard here at the homeplace every week. It cuts my time in half that I used to spend on lawn care but now I enjoy my Grasshopper so much that I actually mow the right of way along the highway and around my barns! Nothing is too rough for my Grasshopper 725DT6. It's the best built mower that I have ever used. And believe me at 82 I've used a few!
Gale P Milton, TN
When my husband asked what I wanted for my Anniversary (51st) I am pretty sure he was expecting the usually “girly” response of clothes, furniture or a nice trip or something similar. Well I said “I want a brand new Diesel engine Grasshopper mower!” Boy was he floored but true to his word we
went down to Kelton’s, Murfreesboro, TN and I set on this model and that model and decided on a 725D with a 61” deck that has the hydro lift! Wow, it is fine and I conquer my acreage in no time at all! It is fast, powerful and time saving. I think I made a great choice of a gift that will last
for years. I just wish I had picked that awesome new suspension seat as an option. O well, we do have an anniversary coming up!
Todd G Potosi, WI
At the Potosi Volunteer Fire Department, Wisconsin’s Oldest Volunteer Fire Department, our 729 front mount Grasshopper is our 7th Grasshopper. We built and moved into our new fire station in 2000, and with the new station came over 3 acres of lawn to mow in summer and a huge parking lot to clear of snow in the winter. After renting a Grasshopper for the first year we were hooked and knew this was the mower for us and bought one. Not only does it cut down on mowing time over traditional mowers, but it digs right through snow, helping us keep the path clear to make sure the big trucks can roll whenever needed. Our Grasshopper is more than a mower; it saves us time, saves us money, and helps us save lives.
Jason B Live Oak, FL
my daughter says so she loves our mower almost as much as i do i cant do anything with my mower without her joining me. She makes me start it up just to give her a ride around the yard with no intention of mowing the grass.I have 2 acres of property it only takes me about 30 minutes to cut my grass. My daughter and i enjoy our mower so much.
Al S Webb City, MO
I am 84 years old and I finally invested in my Grasshopper mower 2 years ago. I had been mowing my lawn, which consists of 5 acres, with a smaller mower and it took forever. Now, with my Grasshopper, I can mow the entire area in a little more than an hour and, thanks to the zero turn, there is very little trimming to do. I can’t tell you how many times I've said "I sure wish I had bought this years ago."
Steve C Carterville, IL
I upgraded to this 729T from a 725. Love it. I can always rely on it to mow everything. I also bought the snow blade with it. I have a 5 acre yard, plus some rental property that I mow. This machine gets the job done quickly and efficiently. Great mowing machine. Also l bought the 61” Power Fold deck with it. This makes changing blades a snap. I would definitely recommend this machine to anyone....
Allan S Gardner, KS
Using my Grasshopper mower is “my” time for that peace of mind. My mind goes on cruise and I just enjoy riding!
Grace R Zachary, LA
The Grasshopper lawn mower is so much mower to me because it has speed, good looks, and it's diesel. It does not get any better than that!
Billy M Princeton, KY
Having been a golf course superintendent and lawn care service owner/operator for the past 38 years, my job has required lots of mowing. I used the Grasshopper mower to make my business successful. After retiring in 2012 as a super retirement gift, I purchased a new Model 723K with the 61” out front deck in order to reduce my weed eating time. I would highly recommend to anyone in turf management whether just starting or have an established business to go with the Grasshopper. Great not only for mowing but with the attachments it has to offer, such as the aerator, turbine blower, snow thrower remote vac, snow plow, rotary vac & power vac, it makes each job easier. You will find the Grasshopper very competitive in price, riding comfort with ease of servicing and maintaining. Go for the top of the line, “Go Grasshopper.”
Floyd H Wilbur, NE
This is my 3rd Grasshopper, but my first new one. When my previous Grasshopper went in for service, my dealer suggested trading for a new one. At 99 1/2 years of age, I said, “Sure, why not! Life is short!” I am no spring chicken, so my Grasshopper is my motorized mobility machine - not only for mowing and gardening, but also for providing me the ability to prune and maintain my walnut grove. I live in a rural region of SE Nebraska in the heart of the Blue River Valley. I love my independence and with the help of a few key people, and the proper equipment, I am able to maintain a fairly independent lifestyle. “Grasshopper is so much mower.”
Ron D Glenwood City, WI
We have mowed 11 acres (hundreds of trees and lawn area) for the past 20 years exclusively with Grasshopper front-mount mowers. They have all been smooth and reliable, producing a perfect cut in all weather conditions averaging about 4 hours per mowing. The new 72’ 325D is the best of all. It is powerful, quiet, and comfortable to operate. Our mowing time is now 2 1/2 hours. Its SO MUCH MOWER giving us so much more leisure time.
Debbie S Beeler, KS
I did a Google Search for a mower to cut my grass.
Needed something dependable and built tough to do the task.
A five star rating is what I was looking for.
My husband said, “Find something that meets that score.”
Hydrualic deck, zero turn and a fast pace. SO MUCH MOWER ...
“GRASSHOPPER” ... I rest my case.
Roger S Dodge City, KS
I use my Grasshopper for so much more than mowing grass. It's a great snowthrower, too!
David W Alexandria, LA
FAST GREAT CUT, MINIMAL UP KEEP, AND GETS BETTER PERFORMANCE AND HOURS THAN A JOHN DEERE. I WAS A JOHN DEERE USER BEFORE AND AFTER EXPERIENCING MY 721 DIESEL I REALIZED WHAT A REAL MOWER IS. I CAN NOW MOW MY SIX ACRES IN JUST ABOUT HALF THE TIME AND MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE. I HAVE NEVER HAD SO MUCH FUN ON A MOWER IN MY LIFE; I CAN’T WAIT TO COME HOME FROM WORK AND FIRE UP MY MOWER!
Bill W Thorntown, IN
Our Grasshopper has been very reliable and easy to maintain, the Kubota diesel is a great engine. This is our second Grasshopper.
Patricia P Live Oak, FL
When my husband died of cancer, I was left to take care of things. My husband loved our yard and spent a lot of time making it beautiful. The Grasshopper is so easy to mow with that I actually love mowing. Its like being on a ride at Disneyland! It's very user-friendly especially for a senior citizen like me. It makes me proud to be able to keep this 4 acres as beautiful as my husband did. Having fun doing it is a bonus. This is a perfect mower for a woman in her senior years. 69 years old and I still enjoy mowing the yard!
John S Cassville, MO
I always enjoyed mowing my lawn, even though it took six hours to mow and trim using my old 42” rider and weed eater. When my dealer brought a Grasshopper out for trial I thought it was overkill for my size of lawn. With no experience at all on this mower, I mowed my lawn in about one hour and fifteen minutes! On top of that, the Grasshopper took care of all the trimming, so my weed eater stayed in the garage! I didn’t need it at all. Why let the professionals have all the fun? My Grasshopper is so easy to use and maintain I’ll never need to buy another mower. Grasshoppers are engineered so well, they are proof positive that you get what you pay for.
