Grasshopper advice-727efi vs 725DT


LawnSite Member
I have decided to purchase a Grasshopper mower (mainly for the flip up deck).

I currently have a Husqvarna GTH52XLS, the yard and lane take about 4 hours to mow and it is FAR from smooth or level. There are some significant side slopes as well. The deck will plug terribly when the grass is damp.

The two models I’m looking at are a new 727efi with a 52” deck and a used 725DT with 94 hours with a 61” deck. The new machine is about $1500 less than the used one

I am wondering if the 61” deck is too wide, as the Husky does scalp in some areas (could just be the nature of that machine).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
