Q: Respectfully request if the Snapper Model 7800786 as shown on your web site is ready for mulching , or do we need to purchase an additional mulching kit. Your reply and comments are appreciated.
by Mary Ann from Louisiana on January 11, 2012

A: Mary Ann

This mower is not ready for mulching initally. The kit compatible for this mower to make it mulch capable is model 7600100. That is the kit that will convert this mower to mucl capable.

Q: Does the grass catches come with Snapper Model 7800784?
by Ronald Currier from Wyoming on July 10, 2011

A: Ronald - the grass catcher is NOT included with any of the Snapper rear engine riding mowers. The grass catcher has to be purchased separately.

New Snapper Rider Front End Nightmare
My neighbor bought the RE110, and I have been repairing the front end repeatedly. This new front end is very weak. if you cross over a small object, it will bend the outer arms that turns each front wheel.

it is always toeing out from it being poorly made. He is almost on his third set of front tires, and it is less than one year old. It is currently waiting for some new front end parts so he can mow again.

Other than the poor front steering it is a good mower but I do not recommend it.

Way,
If you want, you can contact Snapper Tech Support, toll free, at (800) 935 2967. The mower comes with a 2-year warranty, so it may be worth giving them a call.

After One Year A Good Riding Mower But A Few Cons
I bought my Snapper from a local hardware store. I'll start with the pros. This mower is a lot of fun to operate. The key start is reliable. The blade function is safe and easy to use. It cuts well. I have a small shed and this is pretty easy to store. It seems to have some basic but good engineering.

Now the cons. I'll start w/ things I can deal with. The seat length is kind of short. I am 5-11 and I wish it had a bit more leg room - small gripe. The battery connectors - they... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Durability, Expensive

Not Easy
The steering & seat required assembly: it was more work than I expected. When mowing, it's a nuisance to re-engage the blade after backing up.

Also, I've been unable to remove the nut holding original blade in place when attempting to install the Ninja mulch blade. I'm going to sell the whole thing.

Awesome Mower, But......
I love my Snapper mower, but it has two big problems. #1) you can't go in reverse without stopping the mower. I know, I know there's a safety concern backing up with a spinning mower but c'mon! No matter how small your yard is you will find this a big inconvenience. #2) the turning radius is terrible! Seriously, Snapper needs to do better. I drive nearly twice as far as a zero turn.

Despite the above problems I still love this mower! The hi-vac suction is amazing. It's built to outlast... more

Some Assembly Required
First there are too many sub-assemblies. The assembly instructions were vague and poorly written. No chart to let you know what nut or screw should be used.

The drive for the wheels is also weak. I anticipate having trouble with it in the near future.

To end on a positive note it does cut grass well and the high-vacuum sucks the grass up quite well.

Rick,
This unit has a 2 year Factory Warranty, so if you do have trouble with the wheel drive in the near future your local Snapper service can help you.

Great Mower
I bought my 28" snapper from a local dealer hear in FL. and am very pleased with it. Mows perfect, easy to start with the pull start and have been asked to do my neighbors yard. Even at 28" cut it still mows more and faster than my 42" cut walk-behind and I am relaxed after mowing as here in FL. it can get real hot mowing. I'm very pleased so far and the operators manual is a big help in keeping it running smooth. I ordered the Ninja mulching kit and it has been back ordered... more

Theft Replacment
The purchase of my new Snapper Riding Lawn Mower from Mowers Direct went very smoothly.

I had my other Snapper Riding Lawn Mower for 32 years, and then someone stole it. If not for the theft, I would still be using it.

Complete Satisfaction
This piece of equipment is probably one of the best products i ever bought.

It is a no-nonsense machine: no fancy covers and plastic you do not need; all function, no bull.

Free shipping and no tax was huge and I feel the price did not reflect on these added cost possibilities.

Great product- keep up the good work!!!!

Great Dealer
This was my first experience with Mowers Direct and I am very pleased. The delivery was on time and within a few days of ordering. The mower was delivered without a scratch. The instructions were clear and the minor assembly required was easy. I will do business with this company in the future. The mower is great and the cut is even and my yard looks perfect when finished. The reverse blade cut off, although a safety feature, was annoying and I have to be in reverse at several points on... more

I have had "Lawn Tractor's" when I had large lawns, never cared for the cut. Have a smaller but good size yard. I have a Toro 21 inch mulch mower that is great.

The Snapper RE with the Ninja Blade does a good job mulching. I use the Toro to trim, then cut with the Snapper. Does not turn well "like a tractor" but shift on the fly is great.

For the money a good mower.
