  1 Question
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

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

Mower Reliable, Briggs Engine Not
Have purchased several snappers from this site. The performance of the deck and assemblies are good but the Briggs and Stratton Ready Start engines that come on these units are a nightmare. Easy starting the first time but if you have to shut it off to empty or move to a new area, it will not start again. Had to take to my small engine mechanic for carbureater adjustments. He informed me that the way the engine is built for easy starting is also why it is hard to start the next time if you have... more
Pros: Durable, Fast
Cons: Unreliable

Bad Choice
We were looking for a dependable mower, and because we were owners of a snapper walk behind and also a riding one, we decided to stay with Snapper and give the Hi Vac series a try, big mistake. We purchased the 875 series Briggs & Stratton with ready start (7800980) 21" on April 04,2016 for $599.99.

The bag was $22.00 and the mulching blade was $39.99, so with tax $727.09 only to be disappointed 3 months later on July 18, 2016. The mower wouldn't start, the string wouldn't move. I... more

Snapper Not What It Use To Be
Purchasing this was a breeze. Ordered online and received in 2 days. That's about all the good I have to say about this mower. I used this mower once...let me repeat that...I used this mower once in my average sized backyard. Worked pretty well but each time I tried to restart after emptying the bag, it took several tries. Put he lawn mower away and the following weekend took out to mow again. Well, it wouldn't start. Tried and tried, still wouldn't start. Fresh gas (from a well known... more

Unreliable
The vacuum is good on the mower. After the mower runs for a short period of time if you stop using the mower it is difficult to start until the mower cools down. It's very frustrating when you have to mow a medium size area.
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Snapper Hi Vac
The Snapper right out of the box would not turn over. The blade hit the mower deck., The Snapper QA dept. Must be none exsistant. When I called for warranty work repairs, I was told it would be 6 to 8 weeks. My lawn would have been 4' tall in 8wks. I made the repairs myself. I had owned my previous Snapper for 20 yrs. It used to be the best one to buy. I don't believe that is the case anymore. The craftsmanship is not there. The B&S motor is as good as my old mower. Starts on 1 pull
Pros: Reliable, Easy To Use, Features
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Sad that it is not as good as it used to be
