My SnapperPro is 15 years old now


I brought it from my sister after it was 10 years old.

I have 10 acres of grass to cut. It can behave like a Bush Hog at times and easily can take down 3 foot high grass.

I would have to research brands, but I would say this:

1) My engine is a 32 hp and it makes a difference. Research the engine as much as the zero turn.
2) Mine is pretty easy to replace all the mower deck belts. I was shocked how easy it was to replace the drive belts and everyone was surprised I had two drive belts. The extra 7 HP and two drive belts explain why this guy is a real beast.
3) Mine actually has a cover on it. It provides enough shade that I am more likely to cut grass on feels like 105 days. The problem is you have to look for low tree branches.
4) Make sure yours has lights on it. Sometimes, you have to cut grass in to the late hours.

Good luck.
