    Hey guys, I am starting this forum to see who is using Commercial Snapper Zero-turns and how your experience has been. I don't see many of you using Snapper so I am reaching out to those of you who have. I want to know what you have liked and what you have hated. If you can make specific comparisons with other manufacturers you have had experience with, even better!

    Here's a pic of my NZM21520KWV. 21hp Kawasaki 52" cut.

    hey, I have a 09 Snapper Pro with a 61" deck and a 32hp Vanguard. I love this mower. Tons of power, I have yet to bog it down, lays some pretty good stripes without a stripe kit, tad light in the front end. But other then that its been a great machine. No complaints here

    I'll get a picture for ya later today.

    here is a fleet picture.

    The other machines are a Exmark turf tracer hydro, walk behind zero turn machine, has a 18hp kohler and a 52" deck. I still like this machine I feel it cuts as nice as the snapper.

    The other one is a Scag Super Z. Machine was a 61" 22hp kohler. Not much to say about this one, I only kept it about 3 weeks then sold it. The cut was ok and you sat really high up which made it uncomfortable.

    I've had the snapper for about 3 months now and the machince far exceeded my expectations. Before I bought it I was looking at another exmark.

    And my 21" John deere, Mower just won't die I've had it forever

    previous to these mowers I've had a cub cadet lawn tractor and a Husqvarna Gardern tractor 26hp Briggs, and 54" cut, they weren't bad but for cutting grass commericaly zero turn is the only way to go.

    same here, as of now I only service 10 accts, I'm a full time college student, and hold a part time job at a polaris dealer working in the shop.

    Ya gas hedge trimmers are the way to go. I think next I am going to be looking for a kombi-system one then maybe a bed edger.

    I currently cut with two different garden tractors the real difference I see with going with a walk behind or zero turn is just alot of time saved because of the turning is alot faster. Anything else that you like better on the zero turn and walk behind. Thanks
