Features & Benefits
FrontMount™ decks float front-to-rear independently of the power unit, following the contour of the ground to maintain a consistent cutting height on uneven terrain with minimal lateral flex to eliminate scalping. A full flotation option provides controlled side-to-side flotation on rolling terrain.
Extra-deep, 5.5-inch-deep cutting chambers* deliver superior airflow for a quality cut and superior clipping distribution. Also reduces material buildup, so you get beautiful results in both cool and warm season grasses.
* 4-1/2 inches on all 33 Series (44- and 48-inch) decks.
Robotic-welded, heavy-gauge , formed steel construction is more durable than stamped steel designs.
Super-strength, anvil-edged DuraMax® decks feature an angled leading edge that is reinforced to ½-inch thick for long-lasting durability.
GrassMax™ Blade System offers a choice of ADI MARBAIN® blades, which hold their edge longer for better cut quality and twice the life of aftermarket replicas.
Flexible side discharge shield on all out-front decks flips up for narrow access and flexes on impact.
Topside access lets you reach belts and grease points quickly and easily.
Grasshopper's exclusive PowerFold® option combines the ease of electric height adjustment with effortless deck lifting, allowing operators to control both functions with a single switch. Deck folds up for an overall length as short as 6.5 feet (2.0 m), including a collector. That's shorter than many MidMount™ mowers with a collector!

Optional FoldUp™ offers manual lifting to combine the reachability of an out-front deck with space-saving transportability and easy maintenance. (Not available on 72-inch decks.)
Optional hydraulic deck lift (standard on 900 Series) raises the deck off of the ground at the touch of a switch to clear curbs and trailer ramps.

The industry's toughest spindles.
1. Massive 8-inch spindle flanges anchored in a six-bolt pattern spread the force of impact for greater strength in tough applications.
2. Double-layered, 10-gauge plus 7-gauge* formed laminate spindle plane is 25% thicker than quarter-inch steel and nearly an inch thick in stress zones.
3. Sentry™ spindle guards shield the spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion.
4. Non-greasable double bearings are designed for high rotational speeds and minimal maintenance.
