Smoke coming from Grasshopper mower’s chassis

Hi Guys,

I’ve had my Grasshopper 225V for several months now and make sure that I maintain it regularly. Yesterday, it began to emit smoke from the chassis a few minutes after turning it on. Do I need to take it to a service center?


Hi Marcus,

Is it white smoke or black smoke? If it’s white smoke, there’s no cause for concern – what you’re seeing is probably the combustion of oil that was spilled over the chassis. If the smoke doesn’t go away, there could be an oil leak within the fuselage, in which case you’re best visiting the service center. In case of black smoke, there could be a problem with your engine’s combustion chamber and it’s best you visit a service center.
