    Can any one tell me anything about grasshopper mowers. How well will they hold up to daily use? Would you go with new or used? :help:

    Have a 700 series kabuta gas and love it. Pesonal preferance , buy new and you will always know how it was taken care of. Would replace it with another when the time comes.

    I haven't owned one, But I used em' enought to say. They are a good piece. Kinda heavy, but if you keep the deck clean ( and you know you should on any mower ) and get one with the Kabooty, it'll last..

    I must say they are excellent machines, I've had two so far and I have many friends around here that run GH. Good quality machines and as everybody said, go with the kubota engine, they'll last a long time.
