    Do a search on snapper pro you will have better luck. A few guys posted pics of some of the work they did with the SW20 last year.

    I have the 21" commercial w/kawa engine and ir runs perfect. Keep the blades sharp and oil changed and it will run great. I found a old 90's model at a garage sale and it is running great as well. Really don't have anything bad to say about it as the cut is great and the hi vac really does suck up all the clippings.

    The Snapper Pro series is the same as the Ferris HydroDrive. For that reason they should be pretty good.

    Is Snapper a good mower???? Well is kia a good car???:waving:

    Your basic decent mowers are gonna cost anywhere from $6k and up. That being said, there is FOR SURE a reason they cost $4500 new. You get what you pay for rather it be gas, a house, a car or even a mower!!!!

    My SW20 did fine for 8 lawns a week.

    I wouldn't use it for more than that though.

    It's worth the money, but you don't pay a lot for it.

    It fills a specific need, but the market is small.

    That's about it.

    I have been using the Commercial Hi Vac 21 with the Honda engine for three years now. It is my second one. I like the availability of parts and the vact that I can work on it. The Honda engine isn't as easy to work on or obtain parts. I bought it because I could get it at an attractive price If all been the same I would have preferred the Kawi.
