    Looking at Snapper mowers due to a dealer close to me. I need another 21 as mine is dead but looking to add a bigger mower as well. Th e 48 hydro wb and 500 series ztr are less than 50 bucks apart. 5000 out the door for the ztr with the dealer keeping the rebate, he said the 5k was a cash price I guess. All I have used for the last year while starting over was a commercial 21. With only enough money for one which should I get and why...
    Is 5k a good price and how does anyone like either. Typing on a pocket pc is a pain, my computer is dead as well. Looks like I'm going to be spending some money soon.

    I am not farmiliar with snapper, but a ztr will save fatigue in summer. All we use is ztr's. Have a gravely 34z for the backyards. So I would go with the ztr. Many other uses as well. We have a little trailer to put sod/mulch/rocks... in as well and a w/b couldnt do that.

    As far as the pocket pc. If its a hp they selll a foldable keypad that expands and is just like the keyboard of a computer. Best buy, and all the big places have them. If you use it alot its a great thing to have.

    Get a Stand on mower, they are priced right in the middle of a hydro WB or a Mid mount ZTR. I love stand ons, infact i want to get rid of my Zmaster and get another Wright Mower. GL
