    The Case for Diesel

    The Grasshopper Company is committed to a cleaner environment and conservation. Our Tier-4 Final-compliant diesel-powered mowers use less fuel and are better for the environment than gasoline- or propane-powered ones.  Learn more about diesel with our white paper, The Case for Diesel. Our manufacturing processes are designed to reduce waste and are environmentally responsible using processes such as a powder coat paint line.

    • We were one of the first mower manufacturers to implement powder coat paint, we are able to reclaim many of the environmental hazards associated with traditional painting operations.
    • Grasshopper continuously invests in advanced technologies for cutting, bending, punching and welding.
    • Laser-cutting technology is used to achieve the perfect cut while increasing usable yield for every sheet of metal that goes through the plant, obtaining up to 89 percent usable material resulting in a 15 percent decrease in raw material consumption.
    • All scrap metal is collected and sent to a recycling facility.
    • Wood pallets are used for shipping mowers across the U.S. and offer a reusable and renewable source for crating.
    • Automotive style, sealed and maintenance-free batteries can be recycled easily at auto parts stores nationwide.
    • Grasshopper introduced the industry’s first liquid-cooled, diesel-powered zero-turn mower in 1983.
    • Diesel-powered mowers offer superior power, cost efficiency, convenience and lower operating costs than a comparable gasoline or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) engine.
    • Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) engines are available that reduce gasoline consumption and emissions.
    • In 2012, Grasshopper received the Pollution Prevention (P2) Award from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE).
    • The company was selected due to its implementation of high precision laser technology and the nesting software that runs it, and inspection tools that eliminate waste. These new processes have helped to reduce consumption of raw steel by over 142 tons in 2012 alone compared to the previous year.
    • Grasshopper was also recognized for its MaxTorque™ Clean Diesel education campaign which helps landscape professionals and government entities reduce emissions and carbon footprints by promoting sustainable lawn care through the use of clean-operating and long-life equipment
    • All gasoline-powered mowers utilize CARB-compliant engines
    • All diesel-powered mowers utilize Tier 4 Final-compliant engines
