Grasshopper Model 125V

Combining commercial-grade features and powerful performance in a compact design, the Model 125V riding lawn mower with zero-turn maneuverability is ideal for tight quarters mowing and is a great way to step up to Grasshopper comfort, quality and durability.

Heavy-duty Deck

  • Extra-deep, 5.5-inch deck is fabricated from heavy-gauge formed steel with a reinforced anvil edge
  • Specially designed cutting chambers enhance airflow for better cut quality
  • Deck easily converts from side discharge to optional Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection
  • Sentry™ spindles with massive, 8-inch flanges anchored in a 6-bolt pattern, spread the force of impact for greater strength
  • Spindle planes are fabricated from double-layered formed steel laminate and combine with the spindles to form a triple-strength deck to keep blades level and deliver a high-quality cut.
  • Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion

Vigilant Operator Presence System™

  • Standard, low profile operator protection structure (OPS) with an adjustable seatbelt
  • Dampened steering levers that return to neutral from forward and reverse
  • Interlock switches that shut down the engine when the operator leaves the seat while PTO is engaged or levers are in drive position

Shock Impact Reduction System™(SIRS™)

  • Unrivaled comfort with iso-mounted Ultimate Suspension Ride™ scuff-resistant, Cordura®-covered, deep-cushioned, high-back seat with padded lumbar support and armrests
  • Roomy, iso-mounted, shock-absorbing footrest

Kohler Confidant Engine

  • Professional-grade 747 cc Kohler Confidant OHV V-Twin engine
  • Designed to maximize airflow and reduce operating temperatures for extended service life
  • Heavy-duty cyclonic air filter with Quad-Clean™ multi-stage air filtration
  • Full-pressure lubrication to protect critical components

QuikAjust® Drop Pin Height Adjustment

  • Raise and lower the deck easily with foot pedal and drop pin for precision cutting heights between 1.0 and 5.0 inches.

Design-Matched Transmission

  • Design-matched, fully hydraulic Parker HTE Series integrated pump-and-wheel-motor transmissions with in-line cooling fans and fine-particle filtration
  • No power-robbing gearbox or other wear parts for longer service life
  • Provides best-in-class transmission fluid change interval with no break-in period, reducing costs and maintenance time
