If I am correct, all three are made by Snapper.

When it comes to a great long lasting mower, only one word needs to be said:
SNAPPER

The engine will wear out long before the deck and the differential. Nothing but one rubber pulley and one drive disk to replace every few seasons (maybe $25)

If you are bagging, nothing beats a Hi-Vac Snapper. For mulching, I prefer Exmark.

I would have to agree, mulching is not the Snappers best feature, though it side discharges very well.
