Engine on Grasshopper 200 Series losing power while mowing

Hello Guys,

I’ve been the owner of a Grasshopper MidMount 200 series for several years now and have been satisfied with the machine. But the engine began losing power while mowing and sometimes shuts off – what could be causing this?


Hi Ramos,

An engine losing power after switching on is often caused by a clogged air filter and I would suggest you inspect the filter element as soon as possible. If you’re unable to clean it, it is probably time to replace the element. Also check the fuel cap for clogging of the air vent as this could also cause the engine to struggle.
