The Perfect Cut Every Time
A manicured cut so smooth it makes your grass look and feel like carpet. Clean, even stripes that look as though they were painted on. A finish like this doesn’t happen by accident. It takes a mower with the perfect combination of power, performance, comfort and capabilities.
That’s why Grasshopper zero-turn mowers are designed to deliver the highest quality cut without compromising a fast mowing pace or a sweet ride for the operator.
Every Grasshopper zero-turn mower is engineered to deliver unparalleled mowing precision and a comfortable ride, so the last cut of the day looks as just good as the first. Extra-deep DuraMax® decks create a high volume of airflow that moves clippings more efficiently, reduces material buildup and discharges clippings in a wider pattern than conventional decks, providing a clean, manicured finish in record time with one-pass perfection.
GrassMax™ is the only blade system in the world manufactured to meet the precise design specifications incorporated into every DuraMax® deck. ADI MARBAIN® blades are manufactured to precise molecular structure and hardness to ensure superior cut quality, long life, minimal grass buildup and optimum airflow for side or rear discharge, mulching or collection.

Looking for a toothy-edged blade to break apart leaves or clippings in drier conditions? The Shredder(TM) Blade was designed for this purpose. Used with Grasshopper 52-, 61- and 72-inch DuraMax(R) decks, Shredder(TM) blades are the best choice when serrated-wing blades are desired to reduce volume of leaves and clippings.
Not for Down Discharge(TM) mulching but can reduce leaf and clipping volume in drier conditions.
High-Low Mulching Blades
Designed for use with all mulching packages beginning with SN 5700000 and above. In conjunction with the Down Discharge(TM) mulching baffles, High-Low Mulching blades recut clippings multiple times thanks to an extended cutting edge and a carefully crafted rise and fall airflow pattern that helps clippings disappear into the turf canopy.
Use Medium Lift blades if they were provided with your original package.
Medium Lift Blades
Recommended for use with all PowerVac(R) Collection Systems. Medium Lift blades are required with certain mulching packages - use Medium Lift blades with any mulching package that originally included Medium Lift blades. Also recommended for most rear discharge decks.
Also satisfactory for many side-discharge applications, including dry, sandy conditions.
The blade of choice for the highest quality cut in side- discharge mode in ideal conditions where the 1/3 rule is followed.
They are also preferred when mowing over dry, sandy soils. In high-profile areas that are mowed on a regular basis, Contour blades will leave the most manicured cut.
Not recommended in lush, moist, high-volume conditions.
High-Lift Notched Blades
Recommended for most normal side-discharging applications, from the moist grass conditions of early spring to final mowing in the fall. Available with optional LaserEdge(R) EverSharp(TM) technology that requires no sharpening for the life of the blade.
Not recommended for mulching or vacuum applications. Consider Medium Lift or Contour blades in dry, sandy soils.
In dry, dusty conditions, ensure that deck is leveled properly and consider using air dams to minimize dust blow-out from around deck.
Extreme High-Lift Notched Blades
Recommended for side-discharge applications in very lush or overgrown conditions. They are recommended for use with liquid-cooled models or air-cooled models greater than 23 hp.
Not recommended for mulching or vacuum applications and should never be used in dusty, sandy conditions.
High-lift Notched blades are available with LaserEdge(tm) technology as an option and require little or no sharpening for the blade life.
