Preventative maintenance will keep your mower running longer



MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – Preventative maintenance is essential to achieving trouble-free operation. "It's best to start the season with fresh fuel, fresh oil and clean filters," says Ray Garvey of Grasshopper in recent interview with Irrigation and Green Industry magazine. Always start the season off with sharp, balanced blades and make sure they're the right ones for the right job. "The lush, spring grass may be much different than the dry grass and leaves mowed in the fall, so consider changing to a style of blade that matches the mowing conditions you'll encounter," explains Garvey. 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. Grasshopper introduced the first zero-turn radius mower with dual swing-out levers in 1969, and other industry firsts include the first diesel-powered zero-turn radius mower in 1983 and the first electric-actuated fold-up mower deck in 2004.
