    I dont know anything about the snapper line of mowers.
    But I highly recommend the 737. I just made it to 20 hours with the same deck as the one you are looking at. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

    how old is the snapper? and what did you pay for it. we normally put that many hours on a machine in one year so i would think you could get more for it than that.

    Yeah, definately go with Deere; I love my 757. But I don't know the answer to your question.

    well the way i see it you lose 500.0 ones you take a mower out of the show room. 500.00 a year so you are looking at 4300.0 is what your mowers worth. So i would tell them to give you anther grand for your mower or take a grand off the new one. Or they can keep the blades and throw in a collection system.
