Grasshopper unveils two new compact zero-turn mowers at GIE+EXPO 2014



MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – Continuing its commitment to produce the best zero-turn mowers with the highest quality in the industry, The Grasshopper Company has expanded its compact, economical V-Series with two new Models 125V and 225V. Both models were on display at GIE+EXPO 2014 in Louisville, Ky. Models 125V and 225V retain the same professional-quality craftsmanship as all other Grasshopper mowers, with features that include:
  • a fully hydraulic pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions
  • 747-cc Kohler Confidant engines with a limited three-year engine manufacturer warranty
  • 5.5-inch, extra-deep cutting decks with foot-pedal and drop-pin height adjustment
  • large turf-style drive tires
  • fully-cushioned Cordura®-covered seats with padded armrests.
Model 125V can be equipped 48- or 52-inch decks, while Model 225V can accept 52- and 61-inch decks. Grasshopper V-Series mowers 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 zero-turn mowers 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 small outbuildings. Combined with the longest transmission fluid change interval in its class – with no break-in period – self-tensioning belts and only two grease points, the V-Series is designed for less maintenance, lower overall cost of ownership, extended service life and long-term value.
