Respectively--I think the pistol grips are much more comfortable and a more natural position for your hands--you have to keep wrists slightly bent and thumb gets tired unless you rest your entire hand on top of the controls--I used both for many years--I do like the crank deck on the snapper, though you have to keep the cranks oiled and somewhat debris free otherwise it gets all crossthreaded--also after long use, the safety features are a little fickle, need maint every so often--and the locking mechanisms for the loop handles needs replacing every so often otherwise the machine will slip out of (what you would call a neutral position) and start driving--(also noticed guys with small hands have trouble gripping/putting hands on the loop handles and the safety/rear handle at same time--

--tracking control nice.
--adjustable deck is nice
--hyro motors work and run well
--overall a very good machine--like driving a Cadillac--makes mowing easy
