At first look at the first pic I just dismissed it as another photoshoped pic... But to see the rest, holy...cow! Too much time and way too much money laying around to do stuff like that! Of course, what's the origin of that mower? I see you are in Europe, but that looks like something out of the factoy (here in kansas). Like grasshopper is trying to compete with Dixix Choppers insane Hp mowers... They still cant beat the jet engine powered one, lol.

That is orig. 225 from -2000, it was driven 3000 hours, so Kohler was dead. We are distributer of Grasshopper in Finland, we built that for our trade show.
You can image how meny pictures was taken in 3 days, lol.
We did run it in every hour, five seconds, we got good number of people in our boot.

Now that's cool

I like it. Glad to hear from someone from Europe. I for one would love to hear more from Europeans. Nice job on the Grasshopper. Tell us more about lawn care in Europe because most of us are clueless. I'm actually surprised to see a Grasshopper dealer there.

Did you make some kind of governor system to keep it at 3600RPM?

I as well would be very interested to here about the industry in Europe. I know quite a bit about the Uk, but id like to know about the continent,grass types, equipment, way of doing things , from pro's like finmower.

How long is you're growing season in Finland, finmower?
