Q: What is the price for the side discharge attachment for the Snapper Model 7800980 or is it included? I never mulch I only bag or discharge. In your opinion what is the BEST self-propelled walk behind mower for bagging?
by Mike Songer from Louisiana on March 23, 2016

A: Mike - the side discharge deflector cover is included in the carton with the mower. It does not need to be ordered separately. If you are primarily bagging, a Hi-Vac style mower like this Snapper 78009080 is going to give you the best performance
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: How many horse power is a 190 cc engine? Right now I have a 7 horse power, have had the mower for about 15 years but the pull start broke off the engine so now I use the rope to start it.
by Norman Gustafson from Rhode Island on November 13, 2015

A: Norman - there is no true conversion from cc's to HP, but the Briggs 190cc engine on this mower is roughly equal to about 6HP.

By Putting It Together, Didn't Think I'd Have To Re-engineer It.
Mower arrived a couple days ago. I immediately got to work on putting it together out of the box. The unit looks good. Now I am a strictly by the book guy, so I'm meticulous in following the instructions for setup, etc. Everything was going great until I came to the point of adding on the throttle and shifter plastic housing.

When I tried to apply and tighten the 4 x 30mm box nuts, they would not tighten down. Weird! After inspection I noticed that all 4 hole receptacles were not threaded.... more

Snapper / Briggs Cheap Junk At A High Price
Bought this mower based on reputation of snapper and Briggs motors. Horribly disappointed. Mower was hard to start (3-4) pulls from day one. Then mower exploded 3 months after purchase with piston flying out side of engine after only using 6-7 times. Called mowers direct, snapper, Briggs all to get sent to a dealer 35 miles away after blaming us for the failure. Dealer said he had one exactly like ours, even newer that Briggs would not repair for the exact same issue.

Blamed both on... more
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive

Andy,
We are very sorry to hear of the issues with the mower. Once the unit is gassed the warranty protocol has to be handled through the local service centers offered by Snapper. The service center locations then will make the the determination as to what caused the issue. We unfortunately cannot overrule the local service centers reasoning behind the failures. Once again we apologize for the issues and if you need anything further, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you

No Brainer
This is my second Snapper Hi-Vac. I purchased my first one in 1977. Used it for 39 years and only replaced the engine twice. The rest of the mower was getting worn and since I am now retired, I thought why not buy my last mower and what better mower to replace it with than another HI-Vac.

I would not own another mower.

Over the years think I convinced several other people to purchase a Snapper. They could not believe what a great job it did of bagging the clippings and even mowed... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Mower
I have had many snappers most were used this is my first new one, It is the only mower Hi Vac that picks up redwood leaves so I don't have to rake as well.

This one should last many years as long as I use fuel stabilizer as California fuel additives are detrimental to fuel lines and eat metal in carburetors.

Good Mower
Living on an acreage for years, I didn't have the need for a walk behind mower. In the past, I had a Snapper, with good luck, so bought another one. Each time we mow, we bag, so the high vac of the Snapper was what we wanted. We have only used it 4 or 5 times, but it runs very well and we are pleased with the purchase.
Pros: Durable, Fast
Cons: The Bag And Chute Could Fit Together Better

Great Mower But.......
Purchased this mower in March 2016. My last Snapper mower lasted over 20 years! Overall pleased with this model. It does a great job of doing what it's supposed to do. Mow the lawn. Here's what I didn't like. Every page in the assembly tells you not to bend or crimp the cables. Guess what? My throttle cable was crimped / insulation worn through to the cable right out of the box! My mower is always set to full throttle so not a big deal to me.

Missing in the packaging were the cotter pin and... more

Works Well Powerful
ordered this product about a week ago, it came in about 4 days. I opened up the box and started the assembly. The engine throttle cable was broken, probably from the folding up in packaging. They immediately sent out a new cable, when it arrived I continued the assembly. It does not come with oil, so i needed to add oil.

Once the oil and fuel was added it took a few pulls but started right up. I was able to do a full spring cleanup cutting bush trimmings, twigs etc.

It took a while... more
