"As a young man working my way through college I worked at Bunton Mowers in Louisville, KY. I enjoyed putting the pieces together like a puzzle and welding them. I learned there what quality was and Bunton does make a quality product. So when my wife and I bought a 10+ acre farm we knew that we needed quality in a mower. We considered a Bunton (among many others). However, we chose a Grasshopper because they have the same quality welds and most of all NO STAMPED parts to deform or rust! After putting over 140 hours on my mower in less then one year I have to say that the Grasshopper exceeds the quality of the Bunton. We made the right decision with, what we consider, our investment, and the only mower we will ever have to purchase again. Thank you all at the Grasshopper team for taking pride in your work and making such a fine product."
