    Son-in-law considering a used Snapper rear bagger for his yard. Yard is pretty small (1/3-1/2 acre)and not too hilly. Any thoughts on these? I have seen a bunch for sale on Craig's List over the last year or so for $450 to $700 generally.

    The Snapper rear engine rider with a Hi-Vac deck is one of the best riding mowers made in my opinion. Mine is over 30 years old and still going strong. Nothing will pick up leaves and clippings like a 26 to 33 inch Hi-Vac.

    I have the 30 in cut model. Good little machine. Easy to maintain and there is not too many parts. Mine is 5 years old and all I have done was change the oil, lube it and sharpen the blade once a year. I would buy another. It is also made in USA. Mike

    I don't think you can wear one out. My Dad purchased one in the mid 60s and it is still going, although we did make an engine change along the way. He was in the building business and we used it to mow vacant lots.

    Great machine.

    My lot is eight tenths of an acre and I used a snapper for about 7 years until I finally bought another mower with a little wider deck so the mowing wouldn't take so long. I actually sold that mower to a guy who was tickeled to death to find one again and everynow and then I get by his place and see him on that mower after 7 more years. Dan
