Would like to know thoughts on a new 21" mower for residential use, flat land about .5 acre a few trees. Looked at the Troy-Bilt at Lowes 7hp Briggs (Intek?) for only $349. Looked at Toro 20038/56 around $500. But was most impressed with Snapper Hi-Vac with 7HP Briggs around $550. I'm replacing a 12 year old Honda 5hp, bag is too small and engine lacks power - new Honda's are way to expensive for what you get IMHO. Are the Snappers good mowers? What about their rear-engine ridders with baggers?? Help me out, I need a new mower in a few weeks!!
