Q: Hi Jose, I'm wondering if this mower has the feature where the engine and drive wheels can run while the blade is not.
by Dave from Colorado on July 03, 2016

A: Dave,

Unfortunately, this unit does not come with the Blade-Brake Stop feature that you are looking for. Below is a link to all the walk-behind mower models we have available with this feature:

Great Product Terrible Customer Service From Mowers Direct
Did not work out of the box took 15 to 20 pulls too get started had to take it in too be serviced when I called customer service at power direct was very disappointing they did not want to help at all terrible customer experience.

Once fixed it runs great but was without mower for over 2 weeks. Local dealer was angry I did not purchase from him but he was charging $125.00 more and another $85.00 in taxes.

I will never buy a lawn mower that does not have a Honda Engine the absolute best... more
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Durable, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Did not work out of box

Horrible Design
I own a landscaping and Lawn service. I have 6 crews of 4 men per crew. Each crew mows about 59 yards per week. Last year I decided to go all snapper hi vac commercial units. So I bought 12 of these mowers. Big mistake. This mower is not designed for the commercial, hi use industry. We have to do repair work on several of the mowers every week. Not one of the mowers has the original handle that engages the propel.

We have had to fabricate our own handle on every one of the units. Not to... more
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Unreliable, Durability, Poor design for commercial use.

Excellent Quality
Shipping was prompt following short back order period. No damage whatsoever. Assembly was easy according to instructions. Started and performed well immediately. Very hard to find an implement- quality mower with steel wheels, rubber tires, and heavy duty components. This mower is it!
Pros: High Quality, Quiet, Features, Exceeded Expectations

Bag Needs To Be Re-engineered
For the price of a commercial mower, the bag is a huge disappointment. Every time you have to empty the bag, you must remove a tube, unfold the Z shaped fold , empty the contents and then re fold the bag and slip the tube back on.

It takes more time than it should. I am very unhappy with is design. My previous snapper had a back door that flipped open , you emptied the bag and you resumed.

The mower did not come with a plug for mulching. Again for a commercial mower, $2 of plastic for... more
Pros: Fast
Cons: Bag

Great Mower!
The mower was shipped promptly and the service from the carrier was great.

The set up was very easy and straight forward.

The engine fired right up with a couple pulls and fell right in to a smooth idle. Not surprised, it is a Honda.

The mower has a nice cut and the engine has great power. Even the first cut of the year when it was plowing through tall grass and the winters debris it didn't seem to work up a sweat. The bagger has good capacity. Though if allowed to fill completely it... more

Love It!
I wanted a good mower, no Home Depot junk etc.

Mower's Direct made my purchase effortless. Free delivery and no sales tax paid for their financing, it was a no brainer-duh. Easy to put together and starts like a dream. If your interested in buying a mower, you get what you pay for.

Don't let the price scare you, in the long run you will save money because of the longevity of a well built machine. Financing this mower made it easy to handle 12 easy payments. Good Luck.

Re: Hard To Start Posts:
Regarding the several reviews that state the mower is hard to crank requiring many pulls -- the choke is not properly adjusted, period. Either figure out how to adjust it yourself, or take it to a small engine repair shop and have it adjusted.

If you get this right, it will crank on the first pull every time. Btw, If you bought this mower from a dealer, the choke would be adjusted by them prior to sale.

Excellant Old School Mower! Very Well Made!
I had to finally replace my old Honda HRC215, and looked around quite a while trying to find something old school, heavy duty, mostly plastic free, and non-gimicky -- good luck! After finally deciding on this particular Snapper with the Honda GXV engine. I ordered from mowers Direct -- none of the local dealers had it and didn't really seem interested in ordering one for me. Mowers Direct was great, and the Snapper arrived very quickly. After putting it together and mowing the lawn a few... more

Went Commercial
Don't buy the B & S engine. Not dependable on starting after being run for a short time. Honda engine very satisfactory with starting. I understand from dealer I purchased the mower from, B&S engine to be discontinued in commercial line. Had two B&S mowers that would not start after short use, before the Honda that the dealer made good. I have owned Snapper mowers for over 25 yrs. and still recommend them.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
Cons: Expensive

Snapper Mower
I have been a gardener for 36 years and I have always used Snapper.
A few weeks ago someone stole my mower from the back of my truck.
Granted it was on it's last legs. Anyway, I saw your site and decided to purchase one from you.
My usual shop doesn't keep them in stock anymore, so they would have had to order it and it would take about a week to get.
Purchasing it from you saved me a little over $200. And it works great.
