MaxTorque™ Diesel: Diesel Done Right

A perfect combination of power, performance, practicality and sustainability.


If you're exploring alternative fuels, power, fuel efficiency and overall productivity are important yardsticks in measuring the best possible option for your business. That's why you should consider Grasshopper MaxTorque™ diesel mowers to meet your emissions goals while enjoying the convenient, cost-effective power and performance you're looking for.

Fuel-injected diesel engines save up to 900 gallons of fuel over 1,000 hours of use and are powerful and agile enough for any job, big or small. Add EPA Tier 4 Final emissions compliance and the ability to add thousands of dollars to your bottom line every year, and no other alternative makes sense.


  • Clean Diesel can meet your emissions goals while providing convenient, cost-effective power and performance.
  • Grasshopper SmartFrame™ and AntiVibe Power Platform® technology are key to harnessing diesel power and channeling it to the mower and implement drive in commercial and large-acreage applications.
  • Save up to 900 gallons of fuel over 1,000 hours of use, and reduce fuel costs by nearly $9,000 over three years by selecting a Grasshopper MaxTorque™ diesel model.
