Models depicted on this site may be shown with optional equipment.

  • Single-fork tail wheels enhance weight distribution, improve stability and enhance castering effect when maneuvering.

  • Tandem 16cc Parker pumps-in-reservoir transmission with design-matched Parker high-torque wheel motors
  • In-line CoolFan™ cooling system for cooling efficiency and long service intervals
  • Delivers smooth response and requires less maintenance, with industry-leading 1,000-hour fluid change interval

  • Add or remove implements in minutes without tools with QuikConverter™ Implement System
  • Equip your out-front mower with a wide range of tools, including turf cleanup, renovation and snow removal implements that extend your productivity year-round

Isolates the engine and T-Drive™ from the operator platform for an unprecedented vibration-free experience

  • Fewer than 10 grease points and easy top-side access to belts and filters
  • 1,000-hour transmission fluid change intervals
  • Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance

  • Robotically-welded, high-grade steel construction and I-beam reinforcement for long-lasting durability
  • Centered-bearing design provides greater load-bearing capacity to easily handle the weight of operator, fuel and high-capacity collector with reserve strength for curb shocks and weight shifts
  • Tough-as-nails powder-coated finish is fusion-bonded for chip and rust resistance

  • Standard, low profile Roll-over Protection System (ROPS) structure with an adjustable seatbelt
  • Dampened steering levers that return to neutral from forward and reverse
  • Interlock switches that shut down the engine when the operator leaves the seat while PTO is engaged or levers are in drive position

  • 747cc V-Twin Kohler Command Pro Delphi® based Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)
  • OHV gasoline engine with horizontal crankshaft and pressure lube run cooler and provide longer service life
  • Closed-loop EFI engine continually adjusts fuel ratio to use less fuel and provide reliable hot and cold starts, reduced exhaust emissions and fewer fuel-related service issues
  • Automotive-style plug-in diagnostics
  • Facilitates faster and more precise service
     

  • Commercial Use: 3-year unlimited hours; limited warranty covering parts and labor.
  • Residential Use: 4-year or 800-hour (whichever comes first); limited warranty covering parts and labor.

Standard on all FrontMount™ DuraMax® decks 48-inch and larger, PowerFold® is the zero-turn mower industry's first electric deck lift (introduced in 2004).

PowerFold® rotates the deck nearly 90 degrees to provide easy access to the underside of the deck for simplified maintenance and mulching package installation, plus space-saving portability and storage.

The feature also adjusts cutting height between 1.0 and 5.0 inches and controls deck lift functions using a single switch.

LED work lights provide improved visibility in low light situations.

  • Extra-deep, 5.5-inch deck is fabricated from heavy-gauge formed steel with a reinforced anvil edge
  • Specially designed cutting chambers enhance airflow for better cut quality
  • Deck easily converts from side discharge to optional Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection
  • Sentry™ spindles with massive, 8-inch flanges anchored in a 6-bolt pattern, spread the force of impact for greater strength
  • Spindle planes are fabricated from double-layered formed steel laminate and combine with the spindles to form a triple-strength deck to keep blades level and deliver a high-quality cut.
  • Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion

  • ComfortZone™ seat eliminates jostles and jolts with coil-spring suspension and a fully padded, high-back seat, padded armrests and variable density foam cushion. Iso-mounting smooths the ride, erases fatigue and keeps the operator comfortably in control at faster mowing speeds
  • Operational controls including throttle, choke and angled View-Eze™ console and adjustable cup holder are well positioned for visibility and ease of reach
  • One- or two handed operation with QuikAjust Tilt™ dual levers with 9-inch comfort range to custom fit operator's reach. Levers automatically return to neutral from either forward or reverse position and are less strenuous than riding mowers with steering wheels.

Powerful, deck-driven PowerVac™ collection systems deliver one-pass perfection every time, and are available with a wide range of twin or triple mesh bag or high-capacity metal hopper collectors.

Raises the front of the deck to maneuver over soft or uneven ground and to clear curbs, trailer ramps and other obstacles. Lift switch is standard in lever on current models. Kit includes Universal Wiring Harness and requires 50-lb. counterweight and counterweight mount kit.

52-, 61- or 72-inch 34 Series DuraMax® side-discharge decks, which easily convert to Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection. All come standard with PowerFold® electric deck lift/height adjustment; however, 52- and 61-inch manual FoldUp™ decks are also available.

52-, 61- or 72-inch 34R Series DuraMax® side-discharge decks, which easily convert to Down Discharge™ mulching, rear discharge or PowerVac™ collection and come standard with PowerFold® electric deck lift/height adjustment.

52-, 61- or 72-inch 35R Series dedicated rear discharge decks, which come standard with PowerFold® electric deck lift/height adjustment.

Provides an additional two inches of leg clearance.

Used in conjunction with PowerFold® electric deck lift/height adjustment, this armrest-mounted switch controls deck lift functions and adjusts cutting height between 1.0 and 4.5 inches on the go.

The optional Down Discharge™ mulching package with GrassMax™ High-Low Mulching blades cuts and recuts clippings and directs them deep into the turf, enriching turf and producing a beautifully manicured cut.

Optional rear discharge shield kit converts 34R Series decks to direct clippings out the back of the deck for a smooth cut and no windrowing.

An optional Air Dam Kit can be installed along the front edge of most mower decks to minimize dust and dirt escaping from the front of the mower.

The optional SpeedTrimming™ heavy-duty, anti-scalp roller kit for 52-inch and larger DuraMax® decks speeds close trimming near buildings, fences retaining walls and other landscaping features. Kits available for both left and right sides of cutting decks.

The optional Premier Suspension Seat offers the ultimate in comfort and an extra measure of suspension while mowing over rough ground. Adjustable backrest, armrests and lumbar support with weight-adjusted suspension control provide maximum comfort for operators of all sizes and preferences.

Allow for controlled side-to-side flotation of the deck in rolling terrain for a smooth, even cut.

Dual-fork tail wheels or wide stance single-fork tail wheels.

Every FrontMount™ mower accepts a range of time- and labor-saving QuikConverter™ implements for even greater flexibility and productivity year-round.

Lightweight, water repellent, UV-resistant vinyl canopy mounts easily to OPS or ROPS to limit exposure to direct sunlight, reducing eye strain and increasing operator comfort.

Provides additional seating room for larger operators or to accommodate cell phones or pagers. Requires seat belt extension.

The full-view metal cab keeps moisture out and heat inside to keep the operator comfortable and productive. Standard electric windshield wiper clears windshield during operation. Powerful LED lights light up your path. Counterweight required.

Yellow beacon attaches to OPS to provide greater visibility in high-traffic areas.

Diamond-plated aluminum canopy is highly resistant to abrasions. Easily mounts to ROPS to increase operator comfort by limiting exposure to direct sunlight and reducing eye strain.

"The grasshopper that I purchased from Tri-County Implement in Sidney, Montana has served me well and I am thinking of purchasing my 3rd one. I mow 6 farmsteads and I am able to do this even though I was born August the 8 in 1923 I will be celebrating my 90th birthday in 10 days. The grasshopper makes it possible for me at my age to continuing cutting lawns every week. I am looking forward to my next grasshopper and hope to be using it when I am 100."
