MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – Grasshopper announces a new 72-inch DuraMax® FrontMount™ deck with standard PowerFold® electric height adjustment. The exclusive PowerFold® feature allows operators to lift the massive six-foot deck effortlessly at the touch of a switch, providing greater accessibility to the underside of the deck for simplified maintenance and mulching package installation, as well as space-saving portability and storage.
