My Grasshopper MaxTorque™ diesel mower uses half the fuel of my gas mower, which I love, because as an independent contractor, i have to keep my costs low.
The rear discharge decks are perfect for government and municipal contracts, especially for roadways. They keep the clippings off the road and let us edge from either side.
We save roughly 1.25 gallons of fuel per hour per machine with diesel, which amounts to more than $13,000 in fuel savings every year.
You can go from a campground or parking lot to a front lawn, and you’ll get a great finish every time. You wouldn’t be able to do that with other machines comparable in size.
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.
Eight hours a day, everyday, would take its toll on other machines, but not Grasshoppers. They just keep going and going all year.
It’s simply amazing that this big diesel mower is as light and maneuverable on the turf as it is.
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.
After two years of running MaxTorque™ diesel mowers, I saved enough in fuel costs to pay for one of my mowers. It's just incredible.
The Grasshoppers are perfection. Everything about them is great, and the results are perfect. They sell us, we just drive them.
We use Grasshopper mowers because they are the best machines we’ve ever used, hands down. We love them.
We put more than 1,000 hours on these mowers every year. When it comes to performance and durability, you can’t find anything better.
Simply put, there isn’t as much frustration — downtime, maintenance, usability — with Grasshopper as there is with other machines.
Our Grasshoppers and our implements do everything for us…there’s not much they can’t do.
Grasshopper’s comfort features are the best in the industry – bar-none.
There is no other machine I would trust to do the job.
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."
The smooth ride and comfort of Grasshoppers allow my crew to be on them all day without getting worn out and beat up.
Grasshoppers have a light footprint that enables them to mow soggier ground than other machines their size without tearing up the lawn.
The fuel economy of these diesel mowers is twice that of the gas mowers I used to run.
