However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 434-369-6770 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

Grasshopper 325D

Quick Specs

  • Type: Riding Mowers
 
Image Feature

Kubota MaxTorque™ Diesel

  • EPA Tier 4 Final-compliant 54.9 cu. in. (898 cc), 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled Kubota MaxTorque™ Clean Diesel engine with horizontal crankshaft and pressure lube for smooth, reliable operation

Image Feature

Design-Matched G2 Transmission

  • Robust G2 transmission features 7-micron absolute filter and CoolFan™ hydro cooling system
  • HydroGear variable displacement 16 cc piston-pumps and high-torque Parker wheel motors
  • Provides 1,000-hour transmission fluid change interval

Image Feature

Heavy-duty Deck

  • Extra-deep, 5.5-inch deck is fabricated from heavy-gauge formed steel with a reinforced anvil edge
  • Specially designed cutting chambers enhance airflow for better cut quality
  • Deck easily converts from side discharge to optional Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection
  • Sentry™ spindles with massive, 8-inch flanges anchored in a 6-bolt pattern, spread the force of impact for greater strength
  • Spindle planes are fabricated from double-layered formed steel laminate and combine with the spindles to form a triple-strength deck to keep blades level and deliver a high-quality cut.
  • Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion

Image Feature

QuikAjust® Drop Pin Height Adjustment

  • Raise and lower the deck easily with foot pedal and drop pin for precision cutting heights between 1.0 and 5.0 inches.

Image Feature

Ultimate Operator Station™

  • The deep-cushioned, deluxe Premium Comfort Seat features a coil-spring suspension and padded lumbar support for all-day comfort. Iso-mounting eliminates vibration before it reaches the seat, and both padded seat and armrests are covered in scuff-resistant, breathable CoolTemp Cordura® fabric, which dissipates heat and won't tear or crack with extended use.
  • Operational controls including throttle, choke and angled View-Eze™ console and adjustable cup holder are well positioned for visibility and ease of reach
  • One- or two-handed operation with ComfortReach™ adjustable Hydra-Smooth™ dual levers that automatically return to neutral from either forward or reverse position.

Image Feature

Reduced Maintenance

  • Only two Access-Eze™ lubrication points cut maintenance time up to 95%
  • Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance

Image Feature

Vigilant Operator Presence System™

  • Standard, low profile Roll-over Protection System (ROPS) structure with an adjustable seatbelt
  • Dampened steering levers that return to neutral from forward and reverse
  • Interlock switches that shut down the engine when the operator leaves the seat while PTO is engaged or levers are in drive position

Image Feature

Rugged Construction

  • Robotically-welded steel construction for long-lasting durability
  • Centered-bearing design provides greater load-bearing capacity to handle the weight of operator, fuel and high-capacity collector with reserve strength for curb shocks and weight shifts
  • Tough-as-nails powder-coated finish is fusion-bonded for chip and rust resistance

The diesel-powered Grasshopper Model 325D riding true zero-turn lawn mower delivers ample torque and power to handle any job, along with the efficiency, fuel economy and low maintenance you need to maximize your profitability and reduce operating costs. The MaxTorque™ Clean Diesel engine burns fuel at much lower fuel consumption than gasoline- or propane-powered mowers. Grasshopper mowers are built to last with the professional quality features that lawn care professionals demand such as comfort, ease of maintenance, durability, quality and efficiency.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Lawn equipment can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new lawn equipment should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
