    My uncle has one, and I've used and, and I like it, the big problem with it was the choke, it would stick, and flood out, and it wasn't good, it wouldn't start, but he got it taken care of. It needed a whole new choke system I think. But other then that, it runs good.

    Blame the engine, not the mower.

    I had a Snapper 48" Hydro Pro a couple of years ago. It was a great mower. No problems.

    I have on, and if I ever came across another one at a good price, I'd it up! It made me about 3x what I paid for it so far. It seems to be an extremely durable piece of equipment. One of the Hydros is going out on me, but I will fix that and use it. Depending on how many jobs I pick up, it will either be a part of my fleet, or a backup. If you have any other questions, just ask.
