Some Grasshopper lawn mower models include the FrontMount and MidMount mowers. These mowers come in different series models, with the 100 through 400 series being all MidMount mowers, and the 600 through 900 series consisting of FrontMount mowers.
Grasshopper FrontMount mowers are either three- or four-wheeled units that have a cutting deck situated in front of the operators seat and the engine. These out-front decks provide the ability to more easily reach under fences and shrubs.
MidMount Grasshopper models are four-wheeled mowers that feature cutting decks located under the operators seat. As such, the operator sits directly above the cutting deck while mowing. These mowers are suitable for wide-open mowing with minimal obstacles.
