Grasshopper debuts new compact zero-turn mower



MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – Continuing its commitment to produce the highest-quality zero-turn-radius mowers in the industry, The Grasshopper Company has unveiled a new compact zero-turn mower: Model 126V-52. Model 126V-52 is making debut appearances at the National Farm Machinery Show (booth 5058, West Wing) in Louisville, Ky., and at the World Ag Expo (booth G26) in Tulare, Calif. Model 126V-52 maintains the same professional-quality craftsmanship as all other Grasshopper mowers, with features that include a fully hydraulic, integrated pump-and-wheel-motor transmission; a 26-hp B&S Commercial Turf engine (with an extended three-year engine warranty); a 52-inch wide, 5.5-inch deep cutting deck with foot-pedal and drop-pin height adjustment; large turf-style drive tires; and a fully-cushioned Cordura®-covered seat with padded armrests. Perfectly suited for ranchers, farmers and rural lifestylers who want to maintain lawn areas around their homesteads, Model 126V-52 provides the agility of a zero-turn mower with a compact size able to maneuver in tight spaces, and allows for easy storage in garages or small outbuildings. Combined with a best-in-class 300-hour transmission fluid change interval – with no break-in period – self-tensioning belts and no more than five grease points, Model 126V-52 is designed for less maintenance, low cost of operation, extended service life and long-term value.
