Grasshopper introduces its True ZeroTurn FrontMount mode, the 725DT. This mower features a liquid-cooled, 25-hp MaxTorque diesel engine, commercial-grade construction with the company’s Ultimate Suspension Ride for operator comfort, and QuikConverter implement capability for year-round productivity. The MaxTorque diesel engine in the 725DT Tier is 4i-compliant.
The mower’s T6 hydrostatic transmission, co-developed by Grasshopper and Parker and coupled directly to the engine automotive-style, offers redefined input and output to produce power efficiently. The T-Drive eliminates the need for drive belts, sheaves, idler arms, spring-tension pulleys and associated hardware, while tandem pumps are wholly contained in CoolTemp HydroMax oil reservoir with self-contained fine-particulate filtration. No external oil reservoir is needed outside the transmission itself, eliminating oil lines to any external filtration or reservoir system. The design also requires less fluid and features a lower cost of maintenance, according to the company.
The AntiVibe Power Platform mounts the engine, transmission, rear PTO shaft, and all rotating and drive components onto a separate pallet, iso-mounted to the main frame. This Grasshopper design harnesses the torque and power of the diesel engine more efficiently to the cutting deck or implement, providing a vibration-free experience for the operator, the company stated.
The DuraMax mowing decks, up to 72-inch widths, accept the industry-exclusive, patented PowerFold electric deck lift that controls variable cutting heights and raises the deck nearly vertical for under deck access and compact storage and transport.
Swenson’s new EVolution spreader allows for precise placement with its advanced in-cab controller.
