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 responsibility for your own mistakes instead of blaming it on the mower or the company.
I have used Grasshopper mowers in some of the harshest conditions one could think of and never a problem. In fact they thrive on harsh treatment.
