    No experience with this particular mower. The last Snapper ZTR I had was a 1996 model with a 48" deck. At the time, it was very loud and a sub-standard cut. I switched to Gravely and am thrilled with the quality of the cut. Shop wise and compare. My greatest suggestion would be do not sacrifice quality of cut for speed, or price.

    Thanks for the in-put. The cut quality from the demo is excelent! I liked every thing about it just looking for opinions on wear & tear and over all quality of machine.

    I have the Snapper Fastback Pro 52". Love it. Demo'd Exmark, Deere, Hustler, & Dixie Chopper and after each one I kept going back to the Snapper. Cut just as good or better in most cases, and it handled just as good or better in most cases. I would add another one to my business in a heart beat. Only thing I wish it had was 1/4 increments on deck height adjustment, the Snapper (at least the 2004's) I have is 1/2 increments. Other then that, I love the machine. 7 guage steel on frame, deck, everything. Tough machine and I've put it through some tough situations.

    Here's a few pics.
