    I am looking for a new trim mower. I'd like the height adjustment to be at least 4" high. I've looked at the Lawnboy and the Toro and both only go to 3.25". I am trying to find out the height of a Snapper. Anyone know of any good trim mowers that will raise this high?

    Hey Greenbronco, do you like the Honda?

    Ozd, why do you say that about snapper?

    The problem I have w/ the Toro's is that they only cut at 3 3/4", I need something higher...
    The dealer I deal w/ said stay away from Honda b/c there parts are way too expensive.
    He deals with Snapper and says he has had no complaints..I am pretty loyal to this dealer, I have not had a problem at all w/ him yet...Any suggestions?

    Get what you like and then buy bigger wheels to get the deck height to 4 inches.

    honda parts are expencive but seldom break where a snapper breaks down very often (parts are cheap though)
