Q: Todd, does this Snapper SPX2246 machine take a two stage snowthrower?
by Mark from Maine on June 01, 2012

A: Mark - sorry, but the only snow thrower that is compatible with any of the Snapper SPX tractors is a Snapper #1695969, which is a 42" wide single stage model. There is also a 42" plow blade available as well (Snapper #1696092)

Spend More Time Trying To Keep Belt On Than Cutting Grass
Have a spx 42 inch less than a year old, I am going to get rid of this thing and buy a green mower because I spend more time trying to keep a belt on it than I do actually cutting grass.

I Love It So Far
I bought this mower locally (sorry MD) and used it the day after purchase to mow 1.5 acres of very tall but very dry grass. My initial impression is a very good one. The auto transmission and the forward/reverse foot pedals plus the super tight turning radius allowed me to cut this 1.5 acres in about 1-1.5 hours and I have LOTS of obstacles. It definitely seemed to go faster than the 46" inch Troy Bilt POJ it replaced and exhibited absolutely no unfavorable characteristics.

I have... more

My New Mower
Received as promised. Looked good. Problems, had to send to shop for repairs. Three weeks later (shops busy this time of year) got it home. Pick up and delivery not covered in warranty. Took a deep breath and took it for a spin. Well to tell you the truth, this machine impressed me. No hand shift, two pedals same foot, forward reverse very easy. Very tight turns, cost much less then the zero turn machines, which I would not like to work on. Back to the mower, quieter than my older Snapper,... more

A Perfect Company
I'm very pleased with this Company, especially with Joan P., a very professional and sharp person.

We dealt with a Mulch Kit for my Snapper SPX 2042.

Thanks again.

Wow
I received my new tractor in January. Unpacked it charged the battery and decided to try it out. In the fifteen minutes of mowing the belt came off 4 times. I was told to contact snapper, they told me to take it to my local dealer. I took it to the snapper dealer who at a quick inspection found a pully guard missing and trouble with the flywheel kept it from starting. When I get it back I'll let you know more.
