Firmly claiming to produce the highest quality zero-turn-radius mowers in the industry, Grasshopper Co. has expanded its compact V-Series with the new Model 227V-EFI.
The latest addition to the manufacturer’s most economical line of commercial mowers “retains the same durable craftsmanship as all other Grasshopper mowers,” a company spokesman said.
Features of the 227V-EFI include 12cc pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions; 747-cc Kohler Confidant Electronic Fuel Injection engines (with a limited three-year engine manufacturer warranty); 5.5-inch decks in 52- and 61-inch cutting widths, with foot-pedal and drop-pin height adjustment; large turf-style drive tires; and cushioned Cordura-covered seats with padded armrests.
Grasshopper points to the compact size of its V-Series mowers, stressing that the machines are capable of maneuvering in tight spaces. Its small footprint also allows for easy transport on trailers and space-saving storage in shops, the company says.
Mike Simmon, one of several Grasshopper representatives manning the company’s booth at GIE+EXPO last week, said the new 227V-EFI also boasts the longest transmission fluid change interval in its class – with no break-in period – as well as self-tensioning belts and no more than five grease points.
