    I just got back from my dealers open house. There was a new Grasshopper model on display. Its an outfront mower, model 722D. Its the Kubota diesel, with one extra horse power and the entire engine is enclosed. It also has a larger air filter and radiator. The Grasshopper rep said that it generally costs $750 more than the 725 G2 Kubota.

    Did you get to demo it, sounds like it could go through anything.

    I have operated this new model, and it really has more torque and power than the old model 721D. I always felt the 21hp diesel was a little underpowered for a 60" deck in heavy mowing conditions. This new engine, while only 22hp, really is strong and handles the 61" deck much better than the older engine.:)
