I would recommend the Grasshopper 227 Rear discharge to any commercial user or anyone mowing large acreages. I have been in commercial lawn care for 14 years maintaining approximately 40 acres of commercial and residential properties. The first three mowers I've owned were all John Deere. Although they have great resale value, I always ran into durability issues and longevity issues. For... Read more

Grasshopper Mower - Tire and Wheel Issues
1 of 2

I purchased a demo 930D from Jacobsen in Corona, CA in 2013. It was delivered to La Pine, OR. The first summer I used it after delivery there were no problems. The very next summer the right drive tire was flat. I took it in to the local Les Schwab and they found some rust where the bead seal was. They cleaned it up and remounted it. Originally the dealer had changed the tires from turf to... Read more

Owned this mower for three seasons. I do not cut commercially. I do cut about six acres weekly. So far the electric motor that lifts the front deck failed, the linkage that control the steering have broken not to mention the countless number of times that I have had to put it up on blocks and adjust the steering, it runs hot a lot for unknown reasons, the design throws the grass back on the...

Have 618 Grasshopper with a Kohler Command CH18 engine. Uses 1qt of oil an hour, price of a Grasshopper you would think they would come with a better engine. I talked to others who are having the same problem with there Kohler motors. Cost of a new engine is around 2,000 dollars .Talked to grasshopper dealer he said the company that makes the hydrostatic transmission on my model has gone out of... Read more

We are a municipality with lots mowing every week. After buying the grasshopper 930D we started having overheating issues. It has been in the shop four times so far and going in again today. First time the authorized dealer/repair shop found no issues. Second time they replaced a thermostat, third time they said it was the fan, fourth time it was the muffler. Now they say it is the head gasket.... Read more

When making a turn in either direction it eats the yard. When I called grasshopper they sent a rep. to my house , he worked on it for a while then told me that it was my driving. I have cut with other mowers and did not have the problem. I think that they should come back and fix the mower at no charge for the trouble that I have had. Or replace it with a new one at no charge to me. I bought it... Read more
