you would really like the snapper but you are going to be looking at 4500 to 5000 for a new one. they sure do cut nice though. i have been thinking that when i get my ztr, i am going to sell my 36 snapper pro and get a quick 36 to replace the snapper. all i would use it for is a gate mower if i have a 48 or smaller ztr. dont know yet though.
