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 an additional two inches of leg clearance.

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

  • PowerVac™ Collection Systems deliver a clean sweep on every pass. Simply adjust your mowing speed to your conditions.
  • Quik-D-Tatch® Vac drive can be removed in seconds without tools

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

Optional DuraFlex™ Suspension Forks absorb the impacts of rough terrain to maintain a level cut, and can be set for use with PowerVac™ collectors.

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.

Dealer-installed anti-scalp rollers help prevent scalping on uneven terrain.

ComfortReach Tilt™ "no tools" dual steering lever adjustment provides 9" adjustment to accommodate most any operator, providing a custom fit while maintaining natural arm and wrist positions. Standard on most FrontMount™ models.

Available for all 200, 300 and 400 Series models, optional QuikAjust Tilt™ steering levers allow operators to customize their reach over a 9-inch range to reduce strain and increase operating comfort.

The Foldable ROPS allows the two-post ROPS to be lowered for mowing under low-hanging trees and other overhead obstacles, or for storing and transporting in enclosed trailers with low door clearance. CAUTION: Avoid drop-offs, embankments and steep slopes. Do not allow ROPS to provide a false pretense of security in hazardous areas and avoid questionable conditions. Always wear seatbelt when Foldable ROPS is in up-right position. When Foldable ROPS is down, DO NOT use seat belt, and drive with extra caution.

Creates clean, sharp turf edges along sidewalks, roadways and driveways, eliminating time-consuming secondary trimming and reducing edging time up to 75 percent compared to hand-held string trimmers and walk-behinds.

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

Weather-resistant, black Cordura fabric cover with embroidered Grasshopper logo keeps seat and engine area protected during storage or between mowings. Slips over ROPS, with Velcro closure to secure the opening.

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.

LED work lights provide improved visibility in low light situations.
