Brand new mower!!

So I went to look at new mowers today because I am sick of a walk behind so i went to the snapper pro and john deere dealer. There was a last years model snapper pro 150 so I ended up buying it!! I get to pick it up on monday. The mower has zero hours on it even though it was last years model.

It has a 48 inch deck with a 21 hp kawasaki. I was very impressed with it! It was very smooth and very responsive. Lets see how long it takes me to get used to.

Any tips for turning so I don't tear up the lawn? I know most people will say 3 point turns but its a zero turn you dont need to do that

What made you go with snapper over deere? Was it just the price or something else?

Interesting you chose that one. But for the turns, a 3 point is best when getting used to, now I can zero turn with limited turf tear now.

basically the snapper was about $2000 lower. it was a leftover from last year. the deeres were nice, but I have heard a lot of good things about the snapper pro so I decided to go that way considering it was so much cheaper!
