Driftbuster snowthrower

Designed to clear snow efficiently from driveways, sidewalks and congested areas, the maneuverable Grasshopper DriftBuster snowthrower is ideal for use even in deep, heavy, wet snows. This new product delivers no-clog performance, with the combination of a high-speed auger, heavy-duty scraper blades and 180-degree discharge spout capable of throwing snow up to 30 feet away.  

Snow removal system powers through snow efficiently

The Grasshopper Company’s zero-turn FrontMount power units serve as the heart of a complete snow removal system comprised of commercial snowthrowers, dozer blades, rotary brooms and V-plows. Applying zero-turn maneuverability to snow removal saves time and labour so each operator can accomplish more work in less time. These compact, heavy-duty implements power through snow effortlessly with professional-grade construction. Grasshopper’s QuikConverter implement system lets you install and remove implements in minutes without tools. An optional winter enclosure (for 700 and 900 Series) and 16,000 BTU/hr heater (for liquid-cooled models) protects operators from the elements.

Multipurpose dozer blades push snow

Multipurpose dozer blades from Grasshopper are available in 48- and 60-inch widths and are adjustable to allow operation straight ahead or 25 degrees left or right. Easy-to-use control levers permit preset height adjustment, while a quick-response foot control allows intermittent height adjustment. The new 60-inch PowerBlade uses a self-contained hydraulic system for lift and infinite left-to-right angling; the Pro model has hydraulic angling combined with foot-control height adjustment. A 60-inch V-Plow is also available for sidewalks and other open in areas.
