Snapper last forever. I inherited my Dad's Snapper self propelled & I gave it away when it was 35 years old. It needed new wheels(zero tread) & a gas tank(metal was flaking off in the tank). I didn't want to fix it. I tried to go a cheaper route & bought a Toro. It broke on the first mowing. I returned it & went to the Snapper factory outlet store & bought a new self propelled. I've had it for 6 years now & still working good.

Toro makes a really good mower. I have a honda push mower that works really well also. I was mowing the other day trying to get it done before rain...of course, it started raining good, I said screw it and mowed the yard in the rain. That honda never let up and put down a really nice mow on some wet grass. Of course, it quit raining after I got done and the mower was filthy. I also sharpen my mower blades every 3-4 mows...so, that has something to do with it. I rotate through several sets for different mowers.

Honda has the best cut with the 2 blades, but the toro personal pace is good too just kicks grass out the back when mulching and I mow twice a week grass just must be too thick.. for it

Bobcat CT120 tractor with 60" finish mower and a simplicity with a 52" cut. Both cut very well even in thick, tall grass.

I have a MTD Bolens riding mower & though it has it's issues, it's a 2000 model & it still runs good, anything with a Briggs motor is worth something IMO, it always starts!

I use a grasshopper 325D zero turn at work. Works great but it gets bogged down when mowing higher grass. At home we have a husqvarna self-propelled and its too slow for me and I end up pushing it anyways.

at work we use skag turf tigers and a bobcat, the bobcat rides great but the skags cut really well, we had to mow this field that was way over grown, im talking as tall as the mowers and we were able to cut it to like 3.5" or so. at home we have a craftsman self propelled that we have had for probably 6 or so years now and its still running strong

Dixie Chopper!

Just got one at work, 74'' deck, two 26 horsepower engines, thing is amazing.

Drifting while mowing isn't bad either.

How much lawn do you mow? How much money do you want to spend? Don't buy a JD from the big box store or any other brand for that matter they are built for them and are no where as well made as the dealer sold mowers. Zero turn mowers are much faster then a garden tractor and do a better job bit more money but worth it. If you are cutting fields don't even bother with any thing other then a real tractor. I mow about 5 acres with a Husqvarna (good as an better then some), the rest of the 80 acres I mow with a 6' flail mower and a 33HP diesel Kubota. I see people every day mowing a 1/2 acre lot with a 24HP rider it's all in what you feel you need.

I mow the yard with one of these:

However, most of my front lawn is garden, so it doesn't take long. No noise, no worrying about running out of gas, oil, etc. Just sharpen the blades in the spring and you're good to go!

I've had my Honda Mower for 13 years and it still starts on the first pull. I've only changed the oil once in that sucker too.

I agree. When I was in school (nineties) I worked six summers for a man who had thirteen push mowers (Appalachian town where large or flat land is scarce) going fifty, sixty hours a week for six months a year. He used Snapper Commercial Hi-Vac mowers. These things take a lickin'. Everything is replaceable when you finally wear out wheels, lifters, axles etc.. He would buy a few new ones each year and they would come with different engines, usually B&S. After a few months they would blow. He would replace them with Tecumseh engines which would last the rest of the year and sometimes the entire next year.
A few years ago I bought an old eighties model Snapper self propelled push mower. I used it to mow my lawn for three summers before the 30 year old Tecumseh engine gave out(all Snapper Hi-Vac mower parts are interchangeable to date). Then I bought two Lawn Boy two cycle mowers for $100 which I have used the last two seasons. Both start on the second pull if not the first every time.
I need to get an engine for the Snapper so I'll have a decicated bagging, mulching and a side shoot mower without having to change anything out.

im currently shopping for a nice push mower, pretty sure im going to go with a Husqvarna AWD with a Honda motor.
when I have a house with a bit more yard I am really interested in the new Husqvarna rider series articulating mowers. I like how they put the mower deck in the front to get in close to stuff easier but without the zero turn price tag
