    I just bought a 23hp 52" mid mount and think its the best mower I tried.
    The part that sold me is the ease of repairing it and the best ride. I tried out so many till i was sick of mowers and couldn't be more satisfied.Took it out in a cow pasture and bushhogged with it and it went through it like butter.It also came with hydro coolers which is a plus

    They're pretty tough machines. A friend of mine runs 3 of them and each has over 1500 hrs.

    Congrats on your purchase. The Grasshoppers seem to be rock solid and reliable performers. I think Grasshopper would sell a lot more mowers if they would do the sissy thing and give them a visual makeover. I think a lot of people dis-credit Grasshoppers at first glance and never even get close enough to them to check them out good. I bet any multi-line dealer would tell you that 9 out of 10 shoppers walk right past the Grasshopper to check out the other line of mowers they sell.

    It seems to me that Grasshopper is gaining popularity and proving itself ONE customer at a time. I think they could improve that with a new color scheme and revised body work. Something flashy and less drabb.... something that jumps out and says Grasshopper.... not just another red mower.

    The problem with grasshopper is no walkbehind, they are behind the times if 1 dealer is grasshopper and 1 dealer is scag and 40 percent of your work you run a wb go figure.

    7100.00, i didnt need any accessories, I consider it rather pricey but i sure like the time it knocks off cutting yards
