I was at the snapper/husky dealer today They offered to sell me a snapper 44'' 18 hp Kholer ztr for $3500. I did so research and this seams to be the same as the Cub commercial and Exmark top-of-the-line home owner mower. It has a 2 year warranty and this is a VEARY good dealer. I am 16 and work part time with about 15 accounts but hope to ad about 5 this year. gates and hills are not a concern. I figure if i run it for 2 years i got my money out of it. What do you think. p.s. dont even say buy this or that, because i know what i want. I have several other options but just what to know what you think of this one.
