    hey all, im looking at a used snapper pro walk behind. its got 700 hrs on it and is in great condition. the guy used it for his 2.2 acre lawn and his parents lawn. hes asking $1,250 for it. is it worth taking a look at it? it has a 14 hp kawasaki engine 48'' deck and its belt drive. thats all i know at this point.

    How old is it? 700 hours seems like a lot for someone only using it on 2 properties.

    im not looking for a new mower, im just looking for a walk behind to use on the smaller accounts i have. 3 accounts have fenced in back yards and im lackin a few inches of getting my zrt through the gate. so im stuck with using the 21'' push mower which takes me 20 minutes in its self as a walk behind i think i can cut it down to 5 or 10 minutes.

    It's easy to do on a forum instead of sitting somewhere with a group chit chatting about lawn care related items

    Belt drives seem to last forever... I would say its worth a shot. You will know when you see it whether you wanna buy it or not.
