Grasshopper is an excellent product but the company does not always stand behind engine failure. I purchased the 618 model in 2000. My mower has a Kohler engine that has been used less than 500 hours as of July 2016. Grasshopper has declined to replace my engine Grasshopper wants almost $2,000 for a replacement engine plus a conversion kit. When the local dealer adds labor costs the total is almost $3,300. Since Grasshopper knows this... Read more

If you are buying a Grasshopper mower from a dealer in eastern Pennsylvania beware the distributor in that area passes used equipment to the dealers as new units. Used mower decks are cleaned and painted and moved on as new. Tractors that have been used or come out of a dealers demo pool are cleaned up, the hour meters replaced and represented as new units. Sometimes the dealers are not aware this is taking place. If you are purchasing a new... Read more

This company is not a well run company. They absolutely DO NOT stand behind their products. I have tried to work with them after the engine on my 618 blew up. They were dismissive, rude, offered absolutely no assistance, even though the engine had only 300 hours on it. I will never again purchase a product from this company. Read more

I can't believe that no one is complaining about these. The actuator brake went bad on mine with just 250 hours. When that happens, the blade clutch will cut in and out because the switch housing jumps up and down. The dealer told me that it has been a big problem. He recommended wrapping a bungee cord around it for stability. So I bought a $14,000 mower that will require a $650.00 actuator cylinder after only 250 hours? Really! This is my 3rd... Read more

This is the deck lift made by KYB Corp. It rubbed on the lifting arm and go a hole in the oil reservoir that is aluminum. I called KYB and they would not help me, says it's a proprietary item and I should call Grasshopper. I call Grasshopper and a man named *** said they did not sell parts for the unit and a new complete unit was about a $1000.00. I told him I had fixed the oil the hole in the oil reservoir and wanted to refill it with oil.... Read more

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...
