I am looking at the purchase of a grasshopper 124 and am wondering if anyone has had one or knows of any problems they may have. I Currently use a John deere f525 with front mount deck, its getting old. I appreciate opinions and suggestions.
thanks

I like the 124, but if you are cutting alot, i would highly hlrecommend bumping up to the 226. It is an amazing mower for the price, in fact just delivered one today. The 0% for 50 months makes the upgrade very affordable...

The 124 has the commercial deck and transmission, i rate it better than a freedom z, gravely zt, and many others due to the transmission setup...

When I was winding down my mowing operations, I downsized a lot, and did not need my Walkers the last 2 years. I replaced them with a Grasshopper 124, which was a new model at the time. With the mulch kit, it did a great job on the residential properties I still had. My crew used it 2 years, and never had one single problem. I sold it to a homeowner in 2008, and he is still running it with no problems.
