Using Snapper 28"

Anyone use the Snapper 28" the little rider that has been about the same since the 80's? I want to use one for maybe 2 hours a week on a few smaller yards to replace the 32" I have. I was looking to use it for bagging oak leaves too?

A 32 walk behind will be much faster than a snapper rear engine rider, bagging or not.

A 21 would probably be faster and much easier on the lawn. With the snapper 28 you would probably develop a horrible habit of mowing in circles because you have to make wide turns and take forever turning around. Lawns cut with lawn tractors like that always have circular ruts.

80's? Do you mean the 60'S?

the only advantage would be for baging oak leaves. a snapper 21 would be just as faster or faster. they need a ton of room to turn.

My buddy calls them Gump mowers. You'd look good. At least as good as Forrest. Can you run too? Run Forrest, run....

It was suppose to say until I replace my 32" Yea I could probably push a yard faster but its still 90 here with a heat index pushing 100 so I'd likely need a nap after pushing a back yard or two.
