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.

Expect A Great Mower
Nice mower over-all. Pros: Powerful, Hi Vac is no joke, Infinite speed adjustments, large fuel supply, large air filter element.
Cons: With the mulching blade (sold separately) you can expect good mulching with dry grass but clumping will occur with any moisture on your grass, With all four wheels adjusted on identical height detents... one wheel doesn't make contact on a level surface. It's off by 3/8". So is it that wheel or it's same side partner the culprit? I can't seem to tell. ... more
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Reliable, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Oil is a mystery and the manual was useless., Doesn't sit level with identical wheel adjustments.

No No Not Worth Money
Looks nice, that's about It! For the price just spend a few more hundreds and get the Honda Commercial. Hard to start, but once it's on Its great.
Pros: Durable, Fast, Quiet, Picks Up Great
Cons: Expensive, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Have Turn Off When Empty bag

Very Disappointed
I was looking for a quality $400 mower, then ran across the Snapper name brand. This brought back memories of the quality mowers Snapper use to make some 25 years ago. So, what the heck, I bought a new one and paid $1,000. Extremely disappointed - the quality of a once great product is no longer there. This is truly junk. The tin they use for the wheel height adjustments is so thin, it flexes before it releases from the indexed grooves, you can not adjust the rear wheels! The hardware... more

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

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

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.

Snapper Vs Honda ?
Ok for the real deal snapper picks up the grass really good while the Honda does a better mulching job. Yes I have them both and I have been in the business for for over 40 years. Someone said they got there snapper and it did not work when really it just had a bad shipping. They should not even mow their yard hire the pro before you cut your foot off. And you should always check the oil after all it is the life of your engine. I really should not need to say all of this but some people have... more
