    Does anyone else use these or am I the only one. I have not seen these sold very much around Dallas, but after using both Toros and Hondas, these seem to last every bit as long and are very easy to work on? Anyone else like them?

    I use a snapper 21" and have had it for 5 or 6yrs now and still running strong. Don't use it that much but it is supposed to be a heavy duty not commercial machine. I would buy another one but don't know how they would stand up against any of the others. If I used one a lot, would try one that way and see how they stand up to it, then try one of the more expensive ones, then decide after that.

    The Snapper 21's I have, seem to be every built as reliable as my Toros ever were. I seem to have little issues every now and again, such as a cable breaking or a bearing wearing out, but most of the repairs can easily be done in the field or in 30 minutes at home. It might just be me, but they seem to be lighter than my Toros and far lighter than the Hondas, which helps prevent ruts in the yard when it is wet.

    That's what I use and I wouldn't want to use anything else. Mine are several years old, but continue to work well.
