Q: Can you get these with anti-scalp wheels. Our front yard is uneven so these would be needed.
by John from South Carolina on August 29, 2013

A: John - the Snapper rear engine riders do not have an option for anti-scalp wheels on the mower deck.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does this mower have a cup holder? Also what is the hp on this model # Re100?
by Shirley from Florida on July 20, 2013

A: Shirley - the Snapper RE100 rear engine riding mower does not have a cup holder. And there is no true conversion from cc's to HP. The 223cc engine on this mower would be roughly equal to about 7 or 7.5 HP.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does Snapper offer an anti scalping wheel to put on the deck so if I hit a hole with w/ wheel it does not push the deck into the ground and scalp my lawn?
by Travis from Georgia on May 29, 2013

A: Travis - sorry, but Snapper does not have anti-scalp wheels that are compatible with the mower deck on the RE series rear engine riding mowers.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: My back yard has an incline. What is the maximum incline this mower will support? I would mow so the mower is going perpendicular to the incline.
by Ann Noles from Florida on April 29, 2013

A: Ann - the Snapper rear engine riding mowers are not recommended for use on slopes or inclines of greater than 17 degrees. Anything more than this and you run the risk of not only poor traction but restricting proper oil flow to key engine parts - especially if you are mowing across the plane of the slope being mowed as you suggest in your e-mail.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: If by chance, while mower is under warranty and something happens, how does it get fixed?
by Sha from West Virginia on April 22, 2013

A: Sha - should warranty service ever be needed, you would take your mower to the nearest Snapper authorized service center in your area. The Snapper warranty is a nationwide warranty, so it's honored no matter where the mower was originally purchased.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Are there any Snapper models that still have the stand-on-end capabitlity? That was one of my most preferred featrures.
by MCM from South Carolina on April 13, 2013

A: MCM - unfortunately, the "stand on end" feature is no longer available on any of the new RE series Snapper rear engine riding mowers.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: I've ordered a Snapper RE100 riding mower from you recently. I am looking forward to receiving it and am patiently waiting for its delivery. Does this 2013 new model have the capability of adding a trailer to it now that it cannot be stored in an upright position? If a trailer mount isn't provided, do you think that one might be able to improvise their own mount?

Thank you,

Ron

by Ronald Ziegler from Tennessee on February 20, 2013

A: Ronald - sorry, but none of the new Snapper rear engine riders have a hitch included, and Snapper does not offer a hitch attachment as an option either.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Can you stand mower up for easy access to blade and is there still only one belt ?
by Mike from Alabama on February 16, 2013

A: Mike - the new Snapper RE-series rear engine riding mower do NOT have the stand-on-end capability like the previous models did. The mower deck is still a belt-drive system.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Is this mower pull start or electric?
by Darlene Crane from Georgia on February 09, 2013

A: Darlene - all of the new Snapper RE-series rear engine riding mowers are electric start.

Over the years it seems that this small mower has lost some of the attributes that made it a winner for homeowners. The biggest is the inability to stand the mower on it's rear end for storage. That was a handy feature not only for storage but also for easy access to under the deck. This machine never was made for hilly yards and it still is that way...it loses traction on a fairly flat hill, there is no way to add wheel weights (unless they are rigged up somehow), and Snapper claims that on a... more

Snapper Re100 (28") 10hp Rear Engine Riding Mower
I think I made a good choice with the Snapper. I don't have a huge yard. The Snapper easily passes through my gates and does what it is asked of it. The assembly was a breeze and required tools that pretty much everyone has, the instructions were clear and concise. The delivery was great. Overall, it was a good experience. I have recommended the purchase to everyone who asks me about it. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again

Snapper Re100
Loving my RE100, just wanted to point out that a lot of the answers in Q&A are wrong. It has a cup holder, trailer hitch, and also you can buy anti scalp wheels.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Durable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None

Dead Battery
After having only 1 problem with vibration, and that was fixed. I now have a dead battery. When I checked it it has no fluid in it.
Pros: Easy To Store, High Quality, Durable, Quiet
Jerry Recommends This Snapper Mower

Jerry,
Please check to make sure the battery is not leaking, if it is give us a call and we will see if we can assist. Batteries do have warranties and as long as this was not due to negligence, then this should be covered. The only other reason why this would not be covered would be if it was charged for an extended period of time.

Some Things I Do & Dont Like
1-The clutch/brake is too sensitive. Even when you ease it off slowly, it tends to jerk.

2-The steering is harder to turn than my previous riding mower. My wife would have a difficult time steering it.

3-The slowest speed is too fast, especially around trees and other objects and I dont need the highest speed.

4-Even though it is 10 HP, it seems to not have enough power in reverse. Sometimes backing up the slight ramp into my storage building, I have to take several runs at it.
