City of Gençay, France, takes delivery of two new Grasshoppers



The City of Gençay, France, recently took delivery of two new Grasshopper zero-turn mowers. Read the announcement as seen on the city's official website. Of course, the site is in French, so here is the translation (with slight paraphrasing for clarity): Representatives from the City of Gençay say "their mowing equipment fleet was aging, while at the same time, their mowing area was increasing due to abandonment or foreclosure of private property lots in the city. The fleet operators chose Grasshopper due to the mowers' maneuverability, while the city council members chose Grasshopper because the machines fit their budget criteria." So, everyone's happy. And we are, too! About Grasshopper The Grasshopper Company is a privately held corporation dedicated solely to the design and production of commercial and large-acreage mowing and grounds maintenance equipment.
