OK ... let me start by saying I know that my Snapper 1833 Hydro is not a commercial mower, but wow it really does the job. We have had rain for the past 5 days and I have really gotten behind on my yards. Yesterday looked like it was going to clear, so I picked up my sometimes part time help and hit the road. At the first yard it started to mist but the rain never really hit. The Snapper did a great job of bagging all the wet clippings and leaves. It did not even clog in my third yard that had a good amount of straw and the wet conditions did not even slow me down. I was afraid that the mower would leave ruts in the yard or tear the turf. I had no problems at all. I had to take a minute and brag on my little work horse and yes I still hope to up grade to a Walker next year, but I will save a place on the trailer for my trusty work horse.
