    I'm about to purchase a '99 Snapper 48" Hydro 14hp Kawasaki walk behind with 417 hours on it for $3000. This is from a Snapper dealer thats going to put new tires and belts on it.

    I just wanted to know if this is a good purchase

    I personally think this is a little to high as you can buy a new scag hydro w/b for around $4200.00 around here with 0 hrs on it and i dont think the quality on a snapper is as good as a exmark or scag or any of the other top commercial w/b mowers bit thats just my 2 cents for what its worth

    As for the mower, the quality is as good or better than any others. As for the price, I also think it is to much. I purchased a new 52" hydro (Snapper) with a 17hp Kawasaki for $4000 this spring. The mowers are built like tanks and will perform quite well. It always cracks me up to hear all the people on this site that put down a Snapper WB. Bet 99% have not ever tried one. Park one next to an Exmark WB and and then tell me which one is built for the long haul. Try to get the dealer to lower his price, if you ask me.
