Grasshopper’s compact V-Series of mowers includes two new models, the 125V and 225V. Features include fully hydraulic, integrated pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions; 747-cc Kohler Confidant engines (with a limited three-year engine manufacturer warranty); 5.5-inch, extra-deep cutting decks with foot-pedal and drop-pin height adjustment; large turf-style drive tires; and fully-cushioned Cordura-covered seats with padded armrests. Model 125V can be equipped 48- or 52-inch decks, while Model 225V can accept 52- and 61-inch decks.

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. Its small footprint allows for easy transport on trailers and space-saving storage in shops, garages, or small outbuildings.

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