I picked up my new Grasshopper 428D midmount on Thurs. and started mowing with it this weekend. It has the 72" deck and the 28 HP Kubota engine. It performs even better than I thought it would. I had no scalping with a 2.25" cut on a 3.0 acre, industrial site with very rough ground. I was mowing a 10 day growth of damp clover, chickweed,henbit,ryegrass, and bermuda grass. The deck never plugged and the diesel never even lugged down. I was able to mow in about half the time it normally takes when using my 60", 25HP Kohler-powered JD 665. This is truly one great machine and IT LOOKS GREAT on my trailer. You should see the looks I am getting from my competitors.
