Bought a new 725 diesel and only had one year of no issues. The last year and half I have had issue after issue. Main issue being the engine overheats quicker than it should compared to the gas grasshopper mower. Also, the mower has been burning oil. Today I tried to use it and it would not move forward or backwards. I will be taking it back to the dealer tomorrow morning for the 10th time in 13 months. This is my third grasshopper, the...

My employer purchased a 725 DT6 with Power Fold 61" mower deck two years ago. It is very easy to operate, has been very reliable and has cut mowing time by nearly half the time required using other non-ZTR mowers. Recently, I had a problem and contacted Grasshopper Tech Support who very quickly identified the problem and enabled me to fix it myself! I am very happy the the machine and the Tech support. Thanks Grasshopper Read more

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 instance, at about 300 Hrs. with all three mowers I would... Read more

I have had this mower a 721 52’ deck with a Kubota WG750E engine for 14 years, bout it from a commercial landscaper.he had it 6 years the sold it to me. I have had to change one of the drive motors all the bearings and belts, but not one problem with the engine. I need a new deck now and debating weather to buy a new mower or just buy a new deck. Do not buy a Kohler, I have been told that those engines don’t hold up. I don’t know if I could go... 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 bar tires citing they were required to sell it as... 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 radiator so I have to stop a couple of times while...
