and to add on, I would be getting it sooner, but my dealer is not getting the order with the mower until next month.

snapper push mowers are junk...have you ever used anything besides that? Have you ever tried a honda or a husky 21? just to name a few that a faaaar better then those old dinosaurs. Not that old is bad but for a snapper it is lol. esp if your lifting that heavy ass thing into a car that must suck try a husky 21 with the honda engine. I dont see anyone running one of those on here and idk y. Trust me your back will thank me later.

Sorry my first post is an ******* comment but when ever I see you post I wanna tell you how much your missing out. Your work looks good though keep it up!

You can dislike Snappers, I can like Snappers. I think they are really nice, high quality machines. Everyone I talked to around here said they are the best machines you can get. But, if you dislike them, you can.

and yes, I have used an old Craftsman and Lawnboy, and I liked the snapper the best.

And, I have plans to built a ramp or buy one of those wheelchair carriers for this season too.

But, thanks for the comment on my work.

So what do you do, bag it with the mowers or wash it away with the pressure washer? Gonna be a pretty heavy wet snow, don't think the backpack will do much good. Might even be heavy enough to choke the snow blower.

We had a heavy wet snow yesterday and some snowblowers were handling it pretty well. One guy a couple doors down from one of my accounts wasn't having any luck getting his snowblower to toss it so he just started using it as a plow, lol.
