    Yes, it's me again. Looked at some WBs today and here are some prices:

    Snapper 52", 17hp twin, pull start, hydro = $4299

    Snapper 48", 14hp, pull start, hydro = $3999

    Snapper 52", 17hp twin, pull start, hydro, demo w/10 hrs = $4099

    Toro 52", 17hp twin, pull, hydro = $5158

    Exmark 52" TTHP, 17hp twin, pull, hydro = $5299

    Exmark 52" TTHP, 17hp twin, el start, hydro, demo, 25hrs = $5099

    Exmark 48" TTHP, 17hp twin, pull, hydro = $5099

    Dealers are the same distance away and are very good. What is the current thought on Snapper? I have done some research and while not many people use them, the ones that do seem to like them.

    Thank you for the advice, I appreciate the advice all of you have offered,

    I did check the other thread (I found that one searching and brought it to the top) but I'm looking for opinions on CURRENT W/B prices.

    Thanks,

    Sorry I didn't see your post on the other thread. Don't know about prices, does sem that snapper is less expensive. the snapper seams to have less hp options than others, but I think they are a little lighter machine.

    If you are looking for the lowest priced mower, check out the Lesco, a god mower for the money, but pistol grip and heavy.

    I've ben looking at 48" foalting deck hydro's and most are around 5k and up, but I want as much power as I can get.

    I might check out snappers again.

    Agree Jole look into Lesco, I just got a 52 19 hr Wb for 3499. Sounds like a Harely. Ive used them all my life in lawn care, and nothing bad to say.And there grps are comfy to and I have small hands.You can email me if you like.

    As far as weight goes, the snapper 52" w/17hp is 20lbs heavier than an Exmark TTHP 52" w/17hp.

    Something you may to consider are these machines you're looking at single or dual drive hydros? Go for the DD's if yoiu can afford it.

    And FWIW, Snapper was always a homeowner type of mower to me. Correct me if i am wrong...dunno...just my opinion though.

    i thought ferris was the only SD hydro.

    as for snapper, you can always find a few who like any machine.


    a few being key.
