I have a Snapper 48" Pro Hydro with a 23 HP Kohler. It leaves divots on almost every turn no matter how I use it. I thought I would get used to the feel of the mower, but have not. I have lightened the spring tension, per Snapper rep's advice. I believe the problem is that the machine offers no indication of when you are going from forward to reverse (unlike Scag, ExM, etc.) - the tension on the loop control remains the same throughout the entire movement. Any suggestions, besides selling it (which is my plan)? Ray Nature-Scape, Inc.
