MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – The Grasshopper Co. has expanded its compact, economical V-Series with new model 227V-EFI.

Features on the new models include 12cc pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions; 747-cc Kohler Confidant Electronic fuel injection engines (with a limited 3-year engine manufacturer warranty); 5.5-inch, extra-deep decks in 52- and 61-inch cutting widths with foot-pedal and drop-pin height adjustment; large turf-style drive tires; and fully-cushioned Cordura-covered seats with padded armrests.  

Grasshopper V-Series mowers provide the agility of a zero-turn mower with a compact size able to maneuver in tight spaces without the fatigue of a walk-behind mower. These compact power units are perfectly suited for landscape contractors who maintain small-acreage and confined areas, as well as ranchers, farmers and rural lifestylers who want to maintain lawn areas around their homesteads. Its small footprint also allows for easy transport on trailers and space-saving storage in shops, garages or small outbuildings.

Combined with the longest transmission fluid change interval in its class — with no break-in period — self-tensioning belts and no more than five grease points, the V-Series is designed for less maintenance, low cost of operation, extended service life and long-term value.
