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

We own two grasshoppers and are in the business of commercial mowing. I have put a clutch in mine this year, and now it sits at the dealers with a worn out wheel motor, which in turn destroyed the hydrostatic pump. This repair is $3100.00. My husband's mower had $1400.00 in repairs to fix the block that holds the hydrostatic. It was completely broken off at the spot that hold it all together. His... Read more

We'll iv got a 2012 329 big block with a 61" cut. The deck clogs up after 1 afternoon of mowing so bad that it kills the 29 hp motor. I have 7 different sets of blades with different lift angles and yet it still clogs, iv gotten into the habit of scraping it clean nightly, the last dealer turned the rpms up on the motor to get the blade speed up, the mower won't even blow grass clippings off...

We have the same problem with our 720k battery dieing all the time. But it never happened to our 520. It is a 93' we bought used in 96'. We still use it for back- up. Great machine. Hardly anything has ever gone wrong with it. I have abused it pretty bad also. But we mow on flat land.Except for the battery dieing on the 720, we think Grasshoppers are the best mowers we have ever had. My husband... Read more

I'm on my 3rd set of belts on my mower. It has 114 hours and its A real pain to replace them. Dealer can't find the problem. Its had normal use. Maybe even light use. I have to take it to the dealer to get the belts replaced. Other people I have talked to don't have this problem. The mower was bought in late 2007. I expected more from A mower that cost as much as this one did. The dealer... Read more

You have to be an *** to blow up a Grasshopper mower. They are the best mower I have ever run and I have put them through *** without one complaint. When you don't know what you are doing don't blame the mower, it is operator error! Some of you can't even spell mower right let alone run one right. I have an 1820 that is more than 25 years old and it is still going strong. Try taking... Read more

I had my mower running for 1.1 hour and the first thing that I noticed was those *** black plastic plugs came out of the mower deck,all but 1. I made the plugs on my last grasshopper, they stayed in until I traded. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS SIMPLE PROBLEM IS BAFFALING THE DESIGN PEOPLE. I feel like I needed to capture parts off the old one. I'm not impressed with to much, this is the last one I will... Read more

I have a 725K 61" mover that I'm having a problem with. After mowing for a long period of time, after shutting off the mower, often times I am unable to restart it until it cools down. Sometimes by rocking the mower, it will start. Yesterday I mowed for approx. 4 hrs. The last time that I turned it off, it would not start again. I tried several times during the evening to start it with no... Read more

I'll tell you what. I had a similar bad experience with this company. I have a Grasshopper 120. I called their corporate office to locate a dealer in my area. They referred me to Atmore Appliance. Mower was running rough so I gave it to Atmore to fix. I get the mower back and it's still running rough, battery didn't charge, steering drive was week, but it cut. This is after the... Read more

I went to a Grasshopper dealer to buy a lawnmower.The dealer tells me the new rear discharge mower makes the grass 'look like carpet'. So I ordered one. I have used a bush-hog that cuts better. So I ordered a midmoiunt deck (side discharge). That solved the problem. I now have $12,000 in the mower, not so smart on my part. The dealer still has the rear discharge for sale after... Read more
