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

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
