Snapper Pro Cut PICS

I got the camera out today and snaped some pics of the snapper pro's cut. This was cut yesterday at 3 1/2 inches. Single cut, cutting off 3 inches of grass. Discharge schute was left down, it was windy.

Looks like it didn't miss a blade of grass. Looks great.

I was verry impressed. The machine has around 5 hours on it and I took the blades and made them razor sharp. I am also a scag dealer and I hear alot of people compare it to the scag deck. Here is some differences I have noticed.

1. They still do not discharge as well as the scag does. I mean its probably second best dont get me wrong.

2. The stripe is still not as good as the scag leaves. The stripe it leaves is compareable to what I can do with a wright stander or the hustlers. But once again Not shabby at all.

3. I know its not apples to apples compareing a ZT5400 to a pump wheel motor setup. But the scag is much less jerky. I guess jerky is not the best word for it. Mabey the scag is more controled over the snapper. Which none compare to the hustler drive/ride. They are second to none!

4. Last, the hillside capability is no where near what the scag is. And again, nothing does as good as the scags/hustlers on the hills.

so this is the new icd deck, same as ferris?!?! looks good, but should have left a area of uncut b4 pics, as only your word says it is single cut, and was 3in cut off. not calling you a liar, you get my point. nice looking lawn too

the cut looks very nice, and so does the lawn, i know you are a dealer, but do you also cut grass and do you spray, or who does this for you etc?

I've been looking for a wb for a while now and had a couple ?s regarding the Snapper Pro.

1) How much does a 48" floating deck Snapper Pro cost (assuming paid in cash, demos are fine too)?

2) What are the biggest pros and cons for a Snapper Pro compared to a large brand like Exmark's Turf Tracer?

Looks good but why make the blades razor sharp? Had you noticed something before?.
I have tried a lot of mowers and i am intrigued by the scags. I need to get my hands on one.

I am fine with the hillside stability of my snapper.

Awesome cut, that's either really nice for a 1st cut or my mower is just really bad Lol.

Again looks really nice.
