I’ve had good success with the AERA-vator. It really helps relieve the compacted areas, giving new grass roots the room they need to grow.
When it’s time to retire a Grasshopper, we stick with Grasshopper. They have a good resale value, even with 5,000 to 6,000 hours.
Grasshoppers have a light footprint that enables them to mow soggier ground than other machines their size without tearing up the lawn.
You have to try to clog the Grasshopper. The PowerVac™ Collection System gathers clippings with no clogging and makes it easy to empty when the collector is full.
The AERA-vator™ really helps us rejuvenate the fairgrounds after the Kansas State Fair in early September.
To me, the fact that you can ride these machines all day and be willing to get up the next day and do it all over again, that’s all that matters.
We can mow so close to obstacles like trees and tombstones with the FrontMount™ deck that we have been able to eliminate using a push mower.
The snowthrower is just amazing. In one pass, the ground is clear, and the snow is 20 or 30 feet away. It has been a great addition to our snow removal service.
Grasshopper’s comfort features are the best in the industry – bar-none.
We have several sites with several miles of walks and the v-plow has proven to be by far the fastest method of clearing them.
The AERA-vator™ is perfect for school football fields and lawns. A school told me they had the best grass after I aerated one year, and they asked me to return the next year to do it again.
The diesel engines deliver more consistent power, regardless of what type of grass or terrain you’re mowing. They make quick work of it, too."
You can ride a Grasshopper all day long and you won’t feel beat up at the end the day. That makes it easier to do the same thing the next day.
The first year I switched to MaxTorque™ diesel, I saved more than $7,000 in fuel costs running three mowers. The second year, I saved even more.
The fuel economy of these diesel mowers is twice that of the gas mowers I used to run.
Grasshopper and PowerVac™ has great weight distribution and a soft footprint, so I don’t have to worry about leaving ugly tracks and ruts.
Reliability is essential. If it snows, I need to know that my Grasshoppers are going to start right up so we can clear the lots and sidewalks; they haven’t failed yet.
We have been able to replace several pieces of stand-alone equipment with just one multi-purpose Grasshopper.
I took a test drive on a Grasshopper and was sold.
With the out-front configuration, the AERA-vator is able to get into spaces we couldn’t previously reach, and there are no plugs to worry about afterward.
