4X REAR DISCHARGE DECK

Dedicated 48-inch and larger rear discharge decks throw clippings out back for a smooth cut and no windrowing

WIDE SEAT CONVERSION KIT

Provides additional seating room for larger operators or to accommodate cell phones or pagers. Requires seat belt extension.

PREMIER SUSPENSION SEAT

Optional premier suspension seat provides the ultimate in operator comfort. Low-profile seat slides fore and aft and includes an integrated shock absorber that manually adjusts to operators between 100 – 300 lbs. Other ergonomic features include a backrest that tilts from -5 degrees to +30 degrees, a lumbar support mechanism, adjustable armrests and a retractable seat belt.

EXTENDED STEERING LEVERS

Provides an additional two inches of leg clearance

QUIKAJUST TILT™ LEVERS

Available for all MidMount models, optional QuikAjust Tilt™ steering levers (except 124V-41) with "no tools" adjustment provide a 9-inch range for maximum comfort and fit while maintaining natural arm and wrist positions..

SIDE DISCHARGE CONTROL KIT

Control the discharge of the mower deck to avoid putting clippings in flower beds and on sidewalks

DURAFLEX® SUSPENSION FORKS

Optional DuraFlex™ Suspension Forks absorb the impacts of rough terrain to maintain a level cut, and can be set for use with PowerVac™ collectors.

BAR-TREAD LOW-PRESSURE TIRES

Optional low-pressure, high-flotation bar-tread tires are available for 61-inch and larger models that flex with the terrain for maximum traction and minimize scuffing caused by wheel spin-out.

Michelin® X® Tweel® Airless Turf Tire

Optional 24x12.00x12 turf-tread drive tire for MidMount™ models equipped with 61- or 72-inch decks, performs like a pneumatic tire but without the inconvenience and downtime associated with flat tires. Provides consistent hub height to ensure the mower deck produces an even cut and excellent lateral stability and outstanding operator comfort. Not for use with PowerVac Collection Systems.

Michelin® X® Tweel® Airless Front Caster Tire

Smooth tread, 13x6.50x6 caster wheel. Performs like a pneumatic tire, but without the inconvenience and downtime associated with flats. Not for use with PowerVac Collection Systems, or with DuraFlex Suspension Forks.

FOLDABLE ROPS

The Foldable ROPS allows the two-post ROPS to be lowered for mowing under low-hanging trees and other overhead obstacles, or for storing and transporting in enclosed trailers with low door clearance. CAUTION: Avoid drop-offs, embankments and steep slopes. Do not allow ROPS to provide a false pretense of security in hazardous areas and avoid questionable conditions. Always wear seatbelt when Foldable ROPS is in up-right position. When Foldable ROPS is down, DO NOT use seat belt, and drive with extra caution.

SUNSHADE CANOPY VINYL

Lightweight, water repellent, UV-resistant vinyl canopy mounts easily to OPS or ROPS to limit exposure to direct sunlight, reducing eye strain and increasing operator comfort.

SUNSHADE CANOPY ALUMINUM

Diamond-plated aluminum canopy is highly resistant to abrasions. Easily mounts to ROPS or OPS to increase operator comfort by limiting exposure to direct sunlight and reducing eye strain. Canopy tilts up and down for customized comfort. (Optional fan and light kits increase comfort and roadside visibility.)

DURAGUARD™ REAR BUMPER GUARDS

Optional 2-bar DuraGuard™ Rear Bumper provides additional protection of the rear of the mower while preserving easy access for removal of the rear service shield. Available on the 200, 300 and 400 Series.

FILTER MINDER KIT

The Filter Minder alerts the operator when airflow is restricted in the air canister on dual-element air filters. The Filter Minder is available as an option on all MidMount™ models except V Series, 225, 327 EFI and 321D. (Standard on 400 Series)

ENGINE BLOCK HEATER

Engine Block Heater helps warm the engine for easier starting in cold weather.

HYDRAULIC HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT

Hydraulic Height Adjustment for 61-inch and larger DuraMax® decks on liquid-cooled MidMount™ mowers allow operators to raise and lower cutting height at infinitely variable settings with toggle switch control. Standard on 400 Series models.

RADIATOR CLEANING WAND

A multi-channel sprayer that combs water pressure between radiator fins without damage, dislodging packed-in dust and debris that can become an invisible source of engine overheating. Remove and clean radiator screen regularly. A dirty screen will cause the engine to overheat. For use on liquid-cooled models only.

LED WORK LIGHTS

LED work lights provide improved visibility in low light situations.

YELLOW BEACON LIGHT

Yellow beacon attaches to OPS or ROPS to provide greater visibility in high-traffic areas.

DOWN DISCHARGE™ MULCHING PACKAGE

The optional Down Discharge™ mulching package with GrassMax™ medium-lift blades cuts and recuts clippings and directs them deep into the grass bed, enriching turf and producing a beautifully manicured cut.

ELECTRIC HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT

The Electric Height Adjustment kit offers 1- to 5-inch height adjustment control from the operator's seat with the flip of a switch. This dealer-installed option is available for all 200 and 300 Series MidMount™ models.

SPEEDTRIMMING™ ROLLER KIT

The optional SpeedTrimming™ heavy-duty, anti-scalp roller kit for 61-inch and larger DuraMax® decks speeds close trimming near buildings, fences retaining walls and other landscaping features. Kits available for both left and right sides of cutting decks.

TRIMAIDE™ VERTICAL ROLLER KIT

Available for the left-hand corner of 52-inch DuraMax® decks speeds close trimming near buildings, fences retaining walls and other landscaping features.

EDGE-EZE™ EDGER

Creates clean, sharp turf edges along sidewalks, roadways and driveways, eliminating time-consuming secondary trimming and reducing edging time up to 75 percent compared to hand-held string trimmers and walk-behinds.

SHIELDED SPRAYER

Accepts 53-inch, 30-gallon shielded sprayer, which features aerodynamically designed shields and fully shielded curtains to contain chemical spray. Four-nozzle spraying chambers apply small droplets that "stick" to vegetation for more coverage per tank using less chemicals.

POWERVAC® MIDMOUNT COLLECTION SYSTEM

PowerVac™ Collection Systems deliver a clean sweep on every pass. Simply adjust your mowing speed to your conditions.
Quik-D-Tatch® Vac drive can be removed in seconds without tools

CUSTOM CORDURA® WEATHER COVER

Weather-resistant, black Cordura fabric cover with embroidered Grasshopper logo keeps seat and engine area protected during storage or between mowings. Slips over ROPS, with Velcro closure to secure the opening.
