Most people agree that both snapper and ariens make fine rer's. For a residential lot under 1/2 acre both recommend their 28". But which will produce the best finish cut? Because ariens has rollers and snapper doesn't it appears ariens would have the edge. Local snapper dealers say that the snapper 33" will give a better cut that the 28" because of the roller's, but that an additional $800-900. But I guess I'd bite the bulet if is just that much better then the ariens 28". Need to decide soon. Any feed back would be appreciated. Lot is a flat corner lot with slight roll down at the curb.
