Don't see too many people getting grasshoppers on here.

Looks like a nice mower!

All farmers around here run their front mounts, and I am amazed at how nice of a cut they leave for such rough surfaces they cut. Good looking rig!! Post some pics of it in action, Id like to see one cut! Enjoy!!

GH 226v or 220

I'm considering a 226v with a 52 or 61 deck vs a 220 with a 48" deck that is a good price. I'm confused about engine manufactures and vertical and horizontal shafts and overall performance. Its not just a matter of deck size and HP, I'm learning.

I would love to hear opinions, please.
