Your Next Mower should be a diesel zero-turn mower
Grasshopper introduced the industry's first¬†diesel¬†zero-turn mower in 1983. Since that time, diesel engine technology and emissions regulations have made the diesel zero-turn mower more powerful, efficient and environmentally friendly than ever. That's¬†why "Your Next Mower" should be a diesel.
Clean Diesel: More Power with¬†Less Fuel
Diesel fuel packs more power per gallon than gasoline (13 percent more¬†BTUs) and propane (54 percent more¬†BTUs). And,¬†due to method of fuel combustion (compression versus spark), diesel engines deliver¬†better fuel economy.
A Grasshopper Clean Diesel zero-turn mower uses half the fuel per hour than¬†gasoline and propane -- 0.9 gal/hr versus 1.8 gal/hr (gasoline) and 1.95 gal/hr (propane). That increased fuel efficiency can save up to $2,500 in fuel costs every year!

Clean Diesel:¬†Lower emissions
Not only do¬†Clean Diesel mowers use less fuel, they¬†also emit lower levels of smog-forming greenhouse gases and harmful pollutants. As of January 2014, all diesel engines -- like the MaxTorque¬ô diesel engine found in a Grasshopper Clean Diesel zero-turn mower -- must be compliant with EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standards. These standards require diesel engines to release¬†dramatically ¬†lower emissions levels than when Tier 1 standards were first released in 1996.
NOx and PM (Particulate Matter/soot) levels have been reduced by 96 percent since 1996.
As a result, diesel engines¬†are cleaner burning than ever before. In fact, a 25-hp Grasshopper Clean Diesel zero-turn mower emits 42 percent less Carbon Dioxide (CO2) than a gasoline mower and 16 percent less than a propane mower!
So, when you're looking for "Your Next Mower," a Grasshopper Clean Diesel zero-turn mower is a great place to start. More power, double the fuel economy, lower fuel costs and fewer GHG emissions. You can learn more about Grasshopper Clean Diesel mowers at http://www.grasshoppermower.com.
