Well, I've posted on here about my Gravely and the problems I experienced. So after days of going back and forth with my dealership, I finally reached a consensus with them and they made me a really good deal. I am now the proud owner of a Snapper Pro S200X with the 27hp Kohler and 61" deck. I haven't got to cut with it yet, but it seems like a beast! I like the controls (crisp enough but softer than the Gravely) and it seems like it has a good balance to it. So, has anyone had any experience with these mowers? I have high expectations, seeing as they are so closely related to the Ferris IS2000.
