Toro sr4 or snapper P21875BVE or used metro 21

I am getting a new 21 next year year, I do not use my 32 much and my toro is leeking oil and is having other issues, my lawnboy is okay, but I need a sp 21 my snapper and other toro are push so I am getting a new one next year, I will either get the snapper or toro new or find a used metro 21,

I have a Snapper Commercial Hi-Vac. Bags like a champ, mulches pretty well, but bags better. I can do a 1/4 acre, taking about 1 -2 inches of grass off, and only empty my bag 3-4 times.

I like my snapper as well, I hasve had 2 but I hath the high vac system, it clogs a lot on my, I have also had 2 toros and the snapper is a better bagger if the grass is dry, I mulch most of the time and think my snapper is a pita for mulching, but it is very light weight, my toro is rediclously heavy

Yeah, the Snapper mulches pretty well, but sometimes I have to go real slow. Usually, when I bag, unless it's real wet, I can cut at full speed.

I had one that was my grandpas it was a 1987 and sp, I could never cut at full speed in wet long or even just moist grass, I no longer have it ( helper broke it) but I do have a 04 push snapper that I picked up for 40 bucks last year, but the yards I NEED a 21 for need a sp plus if the 32 goes down I need a 21 as a spare

Snapper if you bag, Exmark if you mulch.

I mulch almost all the time but do not want to get a new metro 21 since it is so expensive I will bag the first and last few cuts
