I'm new to this forum. As a homeowner and not a lawn care professional, I have a question about Snapper walk behinds. I do my own yard, about three acres. I'm currently using an older Gravely Pro 40 walk behind w/ velky, belt drive, but I want something a little bigger, newer, and easier. I have an opportunity to buy a Snapper Pro Hyro 48 15hp Kohler walk behind w/ velky that is two years old with very little use for $1800. Snapper rates this as a commercial machine but I don't see Snappers discussed by many lawn care professionals. Does anyone know why and has anyone used Snapper Pro Hydros? Would this be a decent machine for my needs - the price seems right?
