You can dislike Snappers, I can like Snappers. I think they are really nice, high quality machines. Everyone I talked to around here said they are the best machines you can get. But, if you dislike them, you can. and yes, I have used an old Craftsman and Lawnboy, and I liked the snapper the best. And, I have plans to built a ramp or buy one of those wheelchair carriers for this season too. But, thanks for the comment on my work.
