Grasshopper unveils new 61-inch decks for 100V Series
Models 125V/61 and 126V/61 will be a "sweet spot" for commercial and residential markets
Moundridge, Kan. - The best-in-class 100V Series from Grasshopper just got better. New for 2016, select 100V mowers will be equipped with 61-inch cutting decks capable of mowing up to 4.5 acres per hour*, making the V Series the perfect entry point for commercial contractors looking to step up from walk-behind or stand-on mowers.
In addition, 100V Series models will feature single-fill, 6.5-gallon fuel tanks located under the seat for a lower center of gravity, enhanced traction and longer mowing intervals between fill ups. For added convenience, the fuel gauge is located in a visible location in front of the operator seat.
All V Series models are equipped with commercial-grade components and comfort features for best-in-class value: fully hydraulic pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions; professional-grade engines with limited three-year engine manufacturer warranties; 5.5-inch extra-deep cutting decks with effortless foot-pedal and drop-pin height adjustment; large turf-style drive tires; and fully-cushioned Cordura®-covered seats with padded armrests.
Combined with the longest transmission fluid change interval in its class — with no break-in period — self-tensioning belts and no more than five grease points, Grasshopper V-Series mowers are designed for less maintenance, low cost of operation, extended service life and long-term value.
Grasshopper V-Series mowers are available in 41-, 48-, 52-, and 61-inch cutting widths to provide the agility of a zero-turn mower with a compact size able to maneuver in tight spaces without the fatigue of a walk-behind mower.
These compact power units are perfectly suited for landscape contractors who maintain small-acreage and confined areas, as well as ranchers, farmers and rural lifestylers who want to maintain lawn areas around their homesteads. Its small footprint also allows for easy transport on trailers and space-saving storage in shops, garages or outbuildings.
