I own a small lawncare company and I bought my first machine in 1993 it has 3068 hours on it and it's still going! It is however semi-retired and since I loved it so much I bought another one in 2009 with another Kubota engine and attachments. The machine is used throughout the year even in the winter with the snow blower for commercial sidewalks. I have never had a problem with the machine in fact all I have to do is keep up with regular maintenance to keep the machine running strong.
Joey C Cedartown, GA
I’m a true believer in Grasshopper, and I’ve tried about every machine on the market. It’s the easiest and most dependable machine. The way Grasshopper makes the decks is better – it gives a more professional cut. I've been in business cutting lawns for over 20 years and I can't imagine growing my business without Grasshopper. My dad is part of my company, and that makes going to work very special.
Ray Y Fair Oaks, CA
I believe the innovations put on this new mower are some of the best yet. It is agile, quick to respond in close quarters such as in among closely placed headstones. Very comfortable operating this piece of equipment. I would recommend this mower to anyone who was considering it for just such landscape work.
Bud W St. Charles, IA
I am on my third grasshopper and I just love them. I have had other brands but always come back to Grasshopper. They are a mower in one. I used to have to trim with a walking mower but now with my front deck I can trim closer and faster than a push type mower. I think that it cuts my time in half at this rate. I mow about five acres and time is important. Thank you Grasshopper.
Steven W Springfield, MO
My first zero turn mower, WOW, I didn't know what I was missing! I cut my mowing time in half and my lawn looks awesome! The Power Vac Collection System did a great job on the fall leaves and was a huge time saver, I did not even have to leave my seat! The power fold deck makes maintenance a breeze. The mower is comfortable to ride and easy to maneuver around trees as well as under bushes and fences. Clean up is a piece of cake, no awkward maneuvers to clean the deck or change the blades. I look forward to mowing the lawn every time. My wife even enjoys mowing the lawn too! This mower has been a huge blessing it's given me more time to spend with my wife, children and grandchildren. Thank you Grasshopper!
Kenneth S Washington, IN
We live on a 3 acre plot of ground with lots of trees and landscaping to mow around. The landscaping and yard are results of much labor and time by my wife and myself. So last year when we decided to buy a new mower my wife made it very clear which brand of mower we were getting, a Grasshopper. We had used a Grasshopper several years ago but in the intervening time we had used other brands. While they got the job done they just weren't the same quality and feel as the Grasshopper. Ever since we received our new mower we haven't regretted it and we haven't looked back. The way I look at it anyone can mow their yard but it takes a Grasshopper to manicure it.
Mary R Zachary, LA
My Grasshopper 721D is so much mower to me because it is the best investment I have ever made! The front deck makes it easy to change the blades. My mowing time is cut in half, and I love to drive it.
John H Le Mars, IA
My Grasshopper mower is fantastic! I can mow my acreage in about 3.5 hours compared to 10 hours with my previous mower. It is one tough machine that cuts beautifully and can mow thru some of the toughest grass and weeds and even small saplings. The construction of the mower is very solid, I haven't found any weak areas at all. I am impressed on how well it is built. It can mow in very tight areas, and is precise. The maintenance is very simple and easy to do. Raising the deck to clean and maintain underneath makes it easy. I have many trees, fences, and buildings and this mower is very easy to maneuver around stationary objects. I am confident to say that I have probably the best built mower that I could find and the performance reflects upon that.
Fred N Millstadt, IL
I love mowing with my Grasshopper mowers especially taking care of so many prestigious businesses and churches. The property in this particular photo is mowed with my 227-61" Grasshoppers and the grounds of this church date back to 1699 when the church was built. It has a strong history of french heritage and is noted as it sets next to the Jarrot Mansion and is still a historic log church where mass is attended today. Grasshopper mowers provide a smooth ride, easy low maintenace machine and the flexiblility to manuever around these historic grounds to maintain their natural beauty. I mow and trim these grounds, use my bagging system in the fall and even plow snow on this 314 year old property which is featured as one of St. Louis' most popular places to visit and is open daily for tours.
Lori M New Lenox, IL
Our home is located on a 2.5 acre lot. That means a lot of grass to cut! I generally mow the lawn twice a week. Because of the speed and maneuverability of my Grasshopper mower (a 721 with a 61” adjustable height deck), I get the property done quickly. When I saw my first Grasshopper in 1985, I didn’t think I would like it because of its lack of steering wheel. Today, I couldn't imagine cutting the grass with any other type of mower. It’s quick, easy to operate, and has made the neighbors envious of my lawn. (So envious that two neighbors purchased a Grasshopper of their own!) I don’t cut the grass just because it needs to be cut. I cut the grass because I enjoy being on my mower. My Grasshopper leaves me with a beautiful uniform lawn that makes me proud.
Linda H Reading, PA
My dad had a Grasshopper mower for 16 years that he left me use. A few years ago I sold it at a sale. That was a big mistake! I was using another riding mower and couldn't wait to get a grasshopper again. The ride is so much smoother on a Grasshopper and raising the deck makes it so much easier to clean. The only problem was that my husband and I could not find the latch release to lower it. I send an e-mail to The Grasshopper Company and got a prompt response from Dick Z, at their help desk. When you have good equipment to mow the lawn it takes half the time to get it done. That leaves so much more time for me to play my banjo and for my husband and I to go fishing.
David W Auburn, AL
In our 23 years of marriage this is our third mower. We have owned a Garden Lawn Tractor, another zero turn mower, and now a Grasshopper. All three had vacuums on them and none compare to our Grasshopper. We get a professional look with every cut without paying professionals to cut it. When we helped out a neighbor and mowed his yard he couldn't quit thanking us for how great his lawn looked. He said it was the best it had ever looked since he has been there. Our neighbors always compliment us on how great our lawn looks. We owe it to our Grasshopper and that is why it is so much mower.
Chris S Sylvester, GA
I own a lawn service where we are an exclusive Grasshopper Mower operating company. We use both the 900 series and 300 series liquid cooled diesel mowers. I am contracted by the City of Sylvester where we maintain all of the City owned properties. I have found that with Grasshopper Mowers simplicity of operation and maintenance it has allowed us to operate with more efficiently. The City of Sylvester's historical monument "Train 100" pictured with my submission is one of the sites that are most recognized in SW Georgia where we maintain the site with Grasshopper Mowers.
Miriam W Middleburg, PA
Hello My Name Is Miriam, To My Understanding This Is To Be A Short Story About Why My Grasshopper Is So Much More Mower Well If I Am To Tell You That This Will Not Be A Short Story. Hopefully By The Picture You Can Tell What Our 930D Front Mount Is up Against , 8 Acres Of Grass And 200 Plus Trees To Mow Around. My Husband And A Friend Bought The 930D For Me, Before The Grasshopper My Husband Mowed With A Regular Tractor It Took Him 12 To 14 Hours To Finish The Whole Yard After We Got The Grashopper I Can Mow The Whole Thing In Just Under 8 Hours , The Speed Around Trees And Just Straight Mowing Is Amazing Not To Mention The Quality Of Cut The Front Mount Mower Just Floats Over The Yard And My Husband Says The Stand Up Feature Is So Important To Him For Cleaning Out Under The Deck And Changing Blades For Someone His Age, I Won't Tell You His Real Age Lets Just Say 50 Something. Another Thing We Love Is The Service We Get From Grasshopper And our Dealer Hilly Ridge Sales And Service Between The Two It Is Eazy To Own And Run Thru The Dirt A Grasshopper Tractor And With The Diesel Engine The Amount Of Acres Per Gallon Is Very Impressive. To Give You A Clue How Fast My Tractor Is, I Have To Wear My Seat Belt Tight To Keep The Safety Switch In The Seat Connected I Only Weigh 110 Pounds Wet. To Sum It All Up , To Mow With A Grasshopper Is To Own A Grasshopper. Thank You Again Grasshopper For Making Lawn Mowing So Eazy MIRIAM
Kelvin Q Wooster, OH
Our Grasshopper gets the job done in good time and in all seasons. We have a 61 inch mower with a grass catcher, buffalo blower, and a snow blower. It is very dependable. Thank you, Kelvin
Todd H Morganfield, KY
I have been around grasshopper mowers sense I was 13 working with a lawn crew for 8 years I decided to start my own business. I've bought over 6 machines by now and have put thousands of hours on grasshopper mowers my self. I've been in business over ten years now and still to this day run only grasshopper mowers. I believe I know the machine I use better than anyone. I do no have employees I do all the work myself. Please contact me and I will give you some good suggestions on things to change and improve the machines.

Greg J Nova, OH
Our Grasshopper mower has been one of our best investments! With our old mower it took us about 3 hours to mow 6 acres - with the Grasshopper it now takes us an hour and 25 minutes from start to finish! June was such a rainy month and the grass got so long - it was nothing for the Grasshopper- it cut wet grass with ease and muddy patches were no match-even on small hills. And of course the best feature is now I look darn good mowing!!!
Brian H Scottsville, KY
I Have Been Running Grasshopper Mowers For 14 Yrs and the Reliability is Awesome and They serve My Purpose Good
Ray B Sarasota, FL
I mow about 3 acres including my lawn. My Grasshopper mower is mower than a good ride. Zero turn around the dozens of Oaks and Palms shortens the task down to about 4 hours. My wife call my mower my toy; I agree.
Roger M Murray, KY
I love my Grasshopper 620 mower! My husband and I mow anywhere from 3 1/2 to 7 acres every week during the summer. Some of my favorite features are the quick responce and the ease of steering, my mowing time has been cut in half. We also have 4000 feet of white vinyl fencing and many trees and shrubs, this front deck mower makes that job much easier and trimming is a breeze. My husband loves the feature of the lift deck because this makes sharpening and cleaning so very easy. This is an issue when you are 78 years young. Another favorite regarding the lift deck is the lack of space it requires for storage. We now store two mowers in the space of one. The only thing I would change about my Grasshopper would be for the engine to be a diesel and that will be on my list for my next new Grasshopper mower.
Herman F Lisbon, ND
Just love my Grasshopper,the ease of handling,the short turns you can do and be right back mowing the other direction in less time then ever. The wife likes it too we used to both mow with rider mowers now I get the job done in the same amount of time it used to take us both together, this gives her more time to take care of the flowerbeds.
Mike N San Antonio, TX
We have been using Grasshopper manufactured units since 1992 in our commercial mowing business - that says something for the machine quality because we put these units to work most of the year! Our operators jump off the units at the end of the long day looking refreshed and ready for another 10 hours!
Peter D Makanda, IL
Black Jack Vineyards purchased its 725D in 2011. We mow over 10 acres with it and absolute love it. The front mount style allows for us to mow underneath the vines in the vineyard. The fuel efficiency and the ride are top notch. The power fold deck allows for easy access to the blades for sharpening. We highly recommend this product!!!
Jim T Lost Creek, WV
I was very sick in 2011. I was in the hospital from Oct. 31 2011 to March 7, 2012. When i came home I could no longer walk. With the help of a lot of therapy I got strong enough to walk again, but my feet are still numb and I have a lot of back pain. I could no longer use my old lawn mower. I needed a lawn mower I could drive with my hands and that I could raise the mower deck with out straing my back, The [Grasshopper] lawn mower fit my every need. The easist lawn mower to mow with made on the market today.
Mary G Racine, WI
We have had several Grasshopper mowers in the last 15 years. Rising fuel cost made us consider diesel and we purchased a 721D. As we cleared addtional land we have maintained both an expansive amount of grass while adding the "English Forest" look to other areas. Once we together reached 8+ hours of grass cutting with a lawn tractor and 721D we decided to add another front mount, a 725D. Cutting has now gone from 16 hours to 8 not to mention fuel cost savings. The family that cuts together stays together.
Francine N Momence, IL
Francine and Michael Nelson and their sons Doug and Sam mow 2 cemetery and 7 acres of yard on their farm by Momence Illinois. They like the efficiency of their grasshoppers to get the job done fast and hard working machines
Trish F Simpsonville, KY
I love my Grasshopper Mower for a variety of reasons. It not only is comfortable to ride, and very easy to use, it also gives me a break from the busy chaos of my wonderful family. Sometimes, I just need a little "me" time. The Grasshopper allows me to escape to the beautiful outdoors and think clearly about what my priorities are as I mow each row. I think I am a better mom and spouse because I have this time to reflect. I owe my mental health to my Grasshopper mower!
Jason S Chipley, FL
My Grasshopper mowers are "So Much Mower" because they have been through one of the wettest summers in recent Florida history and never skips a beat. In Florida, we have long summers and our equipment is used year around. We at Suggs Lawn Service are a small, family owned, lawn care service and we appreciate the fact that our Grasshoppers purchased from Lanes Outdoor Equipment Inc. are easily maintained. That's one of the reasons that we have used Grasshopper mowers from the time the business was started, six years ago, and why we plan to continue to use Grasshopper mowers in the future.
Justin M Lisbon, NY
My Grasshopper 620T is " So much mower" for many reasons. At our home we put the machine to the test everyday. Our lawn consist of 150 Christmas Trees, Sugar maples, a fruit orchard, and 5 acres of heavy grass which is not exactly on level terrain. The mower chews through this like it is nothing and is hungry for more. To continue the workout through the seasons we put on the Snowblower attachment and wait anxiously for snow. The storm in the photo dropped 22 inches on the level, drifting more, and I had 100 yards of driveway clean in no time. The blower blasted through drifts and sent snow flying 53 feet from the side of the driveway. To show one more reason why I am so happy with this mower, is that I deal with large equipment daily. Coming from working on a 6500 cow dairy with tractors up to 475 hp, it was hard for me to be pleased on lesser machines. We tried many others and they were just toys compared to the grasshopper. This machine has proven itself to me in every way and I couldn't be happier. This is why my Grasshopper is "So much Mower" and why this is the machine for me.
Robert P Pinckneyville, IL
I like my grasshopper mower because it has the ability to lift itself up in the front, which makes it easier for an old man like me to change and sharpen the blades on it. It also cuts my mowing time in half, no pun intended. Like I always say, "This is an old man's dream."
Ray W Elizabethtown, KY
My husband purchased our first Grasshopper in 2001. Traded for a new one in 2004,2005,2007 and 2011.Recently he decided tp trade again(for no good reason)but decided to keep it since his friend and salesman said it was in great shape.Ray is soon to be 89 and I'll be 86.Since I've been banned from riding my bike I decided to learn to use the grasshopper.It is just as much fun and safer!We live on 100 acres and mow 5 of it.He mows around the fruit trees and garden.I still have to learn a few trimming tricks
John S Bluefield, WV
I am very happy with my decision to purchase a Grasshopper 727T mower. I mow 4-plus acres of grass, including around and in between over 50 shrubs. My Grasshopper maneuvers effortlessly, and is so fast and comfortable to use. Cleaning the front mounted deck is quick and easy. Thanks to my Grasshopper, I now have more time to enjoy my favorite summer activities.
Fred B Central City, KY
We have owned a 700 series mower for 14 years to mow our 5 plus acre yard, but after our retirement my wife Sue said she would like to help out with the mowing so we went to our Grasshopper dealer in Greenville Ky. (4-Seasons outdoor equipment) where Mike Mundy gave her a great deal on a new 700 series mower. So now we share the mowing duties, and truly love our Grasshoppers.
Timothy and Carolyn R DuBois, PA
We the Tim Robertson's are the proud owners of Grasshopper equipment since 1997 for our two acre home lawn. Inheriting responsibility for an additional five acres of lawn care at a nearby farmhouse, where my husband grew up, isn't easy but doable thanks to owning reliable Grasshopper equipment. The Grasshopper cuts a more manicured looking lawn in half the time with more ease in operation, maneuverability and maintenance. In 2003 Tim fought stage 4 pancreatic cancer with surgery, chemo and radiation. With determination in himself and the Grasshopper's reputation behind him he follows a "Get R Done" motto. The Grasshopper receives regular maintenance and in return it works hard and stays in good repair. In 2010 we upgraded to a new Grasshopper. Our used equipment sold the same day the for sale sign when up in our yard. This past April our newspaper featured Tim on it's front page readying the Grasshopper for the upcoming mowing season. At his 50th high school reunion in June a blow up poster of that photo was displayed. Tim is now a 10 year cancer survivor continuing to make our properties proud with his Grasshopper partner!
C Gary T Claxton, GA
I am enjoying my retirement years caring for the beauty of over 2500 acres. These acres include areas around two (2) ponds and two (2) gated entrances into a 1700-acrea hunting plantation. Obviously I needed "mower" than the "run-of-the-mill" equipment. The 61" 300 series, air cooled Grasshopper was the answer for me. It's a champion at tackling high and wet grass and the ease of handling and zero turning makes me feel like a champion too.
Wendell H Ryder, ND
I have lived on the family farm south of Ryder, ND my entire life. The only time I was away was when I served in the Army. I enjoyed my years of farming and ranching and am so thankful my wife and I can continue to live on the farm now that I am retired. I am now 88 years young and find great joy in hopping on my Grasshopper mower and tending to the yard work. I leave the crop planting to the younger folks now!
Leonard O Savage, MT
The grasshopper that I purchased from Tri-County Implement in Sidney, Montana has served me well and I am thinking of purchasing my 3rd one. I mow 6 farmsteads and I am able to do this even though I was born August the 8 in 1923 I will be celebrating my 90th birthday in 10 days. The grasshopper makes it possible for me at my age to continuing cutting lawns every week. I am looking forward to my next grasshopper and hope to be using it when I am 100.
Angelo S Greenville, PA
My wife and I retired and bought an eleven-acre corn field. I mow about 3 1/2 acres which use to take me about 14 hours to mow. The cut was all but useless. It was with a regular mower. I saw an add for your zero-turn mower, now I do it in about three hours. The cleaning of the unit is almost effortless. The cut looks professional and the unit is very easy to maintain. If you want a mower that is easy to take care of and want a professional cut, no doubt, get a grasshopper. you will be amazed! Thank you for my Hopper.
Willis V Hendersonville, NC
We live on the very top of Mt. Hebron which is a steep area of 9 acres and before we bought the Grasshopper we used a tractor and bush hog and it took two-and-a-half days to mow and we still had to mow around the house with a small riding mower which took another half-day. Now we mow both in six-and-a-half to seven hours. We absolutely love this mower, have had no trouble with it, and the appearance of our property looks five hundred percent better. Thank you Grasshopper!
Jack H Excelsior Springs, MO
We have a fenced in garden, 50' by 50'. Each fall I mulch the leaves and put them in the garden. They set all winter and when spring comes, my wife rakes the mulched laves back where she plants all her vegetables. When the vegetables get a certain height, she rakes the leaves back in around the plants. We never have any weeds in our garden and it is similar to walking on carpeting when you are in the garden. We will never be without our grasshopper, especially if we continue to have a garden and a yard that is over 3 acres. Thank you very much grasshopper.
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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
