Grasshopper Snowthrower
GRASSHOPPER PTO-driven snowthrowers deliver "no-clog" performance, even in deep or heavy, wet snows. A discharge spout controlled from the operator's seat rotates a full 180 degrees to propel snow up to 30 feet away. Available for Grasshopper zero-turn FrontMountTM power units in 48- and 60-inch models, snowthrowers feature heavy-gauge welded steel construction, a high-speed 12-inch-diameter auger and a heavy-duty replaceable scraper blade for reliability season after season. The exclusive Grasshopper QuikConverterTM implement system lets you remove the mowing deck and add a snowthrower in minutes without tools. An optional winter enclosure and 16,000 BTU/hr heater protect operators from the elements for enhanced comfort and efficiency. Available in Ontario from DFK Equipment Sales Inc. in St. Marys.
