    I'm about to purchase a '99 Snapper 48" Hydro 14hp Kawasaki walk behind with 417 hours on it for $3000. This is from a Snapper dealer thats going to put new tires and belts on it.

    I just wanted to know if this is a good purchase

    Dreyn, That sounds too high for that mower, we
    purchased a 48 Snapper hydro in 1998 for 3695 brand new.
    We still have that mower and we love it! Jerry
  3. Offer him $2500 for that's what a new belt drive would cost.

    The Snapper has loop steering which makes it better to operate than any pistol grip.

    I agree that the loop style steering will be less of a headache than the perverbial pistol grips of yesteryear.

    I was just curious what the dealer told you when you offered him the $2500 this late in the season???
