Observations After A Season Of Mowing
This is the 4th Snapper I have owned and the review for this commercial model is after one season's use. Overall, I have praise for this mower and B&S engine. No problems were encountered over the entire season. The engine always starts with "one pull.." Great! However, there is one annoyance and I one initial set up problem.

The mower arrives in a large box with the hardware in a bag. The bag had broken during shipment and the hardware was scattered. Someone decided... more

Don't Buy
I bought this lawnmower because it said it was Commercial grade.... I got it on a Wednesday after waiting for delivery guy to drop it off since Monday. I put it together, and checked and filled the oil.

We to do yards on that Friday I got 1 yard done and then started on the second and the motor busted. Talking about pissed.... long story short I think snapper is crap now. Nothing like it was when I was growing up. It's a 800 dollar price of junk.

Corey,
We are very sorry to hear of the issues with the mower. Snapper does offer a 3 year consumer warranty on this model in which it would need to be taken to a local Snapper dealer for warranty/repair work. If you need anything further, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you

Great, Well Built Mower
For months I was undecided between this Snapper Commercial mower and the $700 hydrostatic Honda HRX.
I finally decided to go with the Snapper due to the price/availability of parts and ease of repairs that I can do myself. Honda makes a great mower but are very difficult and expensive to repair.

The 6.5 hp B&S engine has plenty of power and mulches without bogging down. The steel ball bearing wheels help this beast roll smoothly and effortlessly forward and backward even without the... more

Two Briggs And Stratton Engines Crapped Out....
I love the mower, and it does a good job, but twice the engine died due to plastic camshaft.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Unreliable, should offer the honda engine on this mower...

Horse Of A Mower
I was 24 when I bought my first mower in 1989. I wanted the Snapper Hi-Vac Self-Propelled with 5.0 hp BS engine, but could only afford the 3.5 hp push model. Many years later, I replaced the engine with a 5.0 hp BS commercial engine, but it was so heavy to push without assist.

Spring forward to 2016, and I just took delivery of this Snapper Commercial Ninja. Wife and I assembled it yesterday. Instructions were a little confusing because the diagrams aren't very clear, and the parts list... more

Best Mower I've Ever Owned!
Seriously! This is the best mower I've ever owned! It has the most power and the most torque of any mower I've ever owned - including Snappers. And I've used Snappers for the last 20 or so years. This thing cuts through anything and doesn't miss a beat. I have hills in my yard and sometimes the grass gets rather high. No problem for this mower!

The only thing that caught me by surprise is the fact that it does not have a throttle control. This took me a bit to get used to, but I love... more

"I knew what I wanted starting out. Just needed to find the right place to get it. Mowers Direct gave me a good price. Good service. Some of my friends just have to go to the big box store to "actually touch what they are buying". I have more confidence than that. I know what Snappers are and how they work. I love the design. I'm a Snapper guy for a long time comin'."

Great Machine
I have owned three different Snappers, an NXT, a Hi Vac and now the Ninja Commercial. If Snapper could combine the plus side of all three machines they would have a Super Mower.

My only complaint about the Ninja Commercial is that it takes five or more pulls to start once the machine has been in use and allowed to sit for more than a few minutes. If I stop the machine to refuel it starts right up again. If I stop to take ten it gives me difficulty. Other than that the mower is great.

"I purchased a Ninja that had to be returned due to a warped deck. This, of course had nothing to do with Mowers Direct but Snapper. The mower was picked up and returned with no hassle. I'm still waiting for my money back on the first Ninja as I purchased a second due to my need to mow here in Florida. I was told it would take up to ten business days and I am confident that Mowers Direct will credit my account. This is the fourth mower I have purchased through MD and will not hesitate to do so again if the need arises."

Sad Day
The mower is running at full blast all the time sounds like it will blow up at any time. The speed control that is supposed to be load sensitive does not work and Snapper will not respond to my emails. I bought this because I had two before and love the drive system but now I wonder about my wisdom.

Not As Advertised
I purchased the Snapper Commercial after receiving the Snapper Ninja which did not have engine throttle control as pictured on the Mowers Direct website. This mower was returned. Much to my surprise, the commercial model also did not have throttle control. As a result, the Commercial model was also returned. With a price tag of $720, you would expect to receive what is advertised.

"Mowers Direct is a well managed and operated firm. However the Snapper vendor evidently did not provide current product information to them. Shipping was prompt. I expect to receive what I pay for and was not satisfied with the product received."

Relilable Snapper
much the same it's been for years, the best drive system out there for ease of use & durability , except for the engage cable that breaks often, needs re-engineering. the out-ward curl on deck bottom is a good improvement, rather than inward which built up more crud underneath & made cleaning it out harder.

The plastic thumb screws on the chute opening are a joke, busted first time you get close to a fence, curb, or tree. I have both the Honda & Briggs engines. The Briggs is... more

Great Mower
I ordered it because it and its sibling (the sibling is setup for bagging this one is setup for mulching) were the only ones I could find with non-plastic wheels. Every other push mower I could find anything to read about (no matter how deluxe and/or expensive) seems to sport plastic wheels -- which was a point of failure on our last mower.

It arrived quickly, in perfect condition and was easy to assemble. It started on the first easy pull, and has started on the first pull each time... more
