  2 Questions
Q: Hello Jose. My questions do not pertain to this Snapper mower. I'm hoping you'll be so kind as to help me narrow down the choices. My needs are as follows: 1) 21-22 inch self-propelled mower; 2) Mulching (Prefer no bag. We NEVER bag the clippings); 3) Not too long. Needs to fit inside our Honda Fit; 4) Fast; 5) Not too heavy to lift into our Honda Fit.
Is there a mower or mowers that come to mind with those attributes?
Kind regards,
Ray Magee

by Ray Magee from Colorado on June 30, 2016

A: This is one of our best mulching mowers and it does not come with a bag so it fits your needs and should fit into your vehicle.

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.

This is the second ninja I've owned. Unfortunately this one was not assembled with care in the snapper factory, I had to remove the rear height adjustment lever and repair it, not sure what the assembler was thinking. I'm lucky I was able to fix it without it needing to be shipped back. I don't blame mowers direct for this problem.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: poor quality control

Last Lawn Mower I Will Buy!
This is my 3rd Snapper lawn mower. My 2nd "Ninja" model. I have gotten 15 plus years out of each of them. Only replacing them because of the "ratty" appearance due to my neglect. They are the most dependable and durable mowers I have ever owned. I say this one will be my last, because at age 62, I expect this one to outlast me! It pays to buy the best! And at Mowers Direct, I received it in 3 days.
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Reliable, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: No cons

Fantastic Machine
I just recently replaced my Snapper Ninja that held strong for over 16 years starting in college when I had my own mowing business. Me personally I don't know anybody whom has had a push mower last them over 15 years. I have used a lot of mowers and the Snapper Ninja takes the gold every time hands down. We all have our own opinions but its a fact how reliable this machine is and its high quality performance.
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable

Great Mower, Fast Delivery
Ordered on a Wednesday and was delivered the next Friday. Really fast! Out of the box everything was perfect and easy to assemble although the self tapping screws on the handle were quite hard to start but no big deal. Put in oil and gas and mower started on first pull.
Pros: Durable, Price, Fast, High Quality

Good mower. Have had snapper mowers for 20 some years. The only thing I have trouble with is the self propel because if you don't keep equal pressure on both back tires, the one with less is the only one that turns. (One wheelie peelie)
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Durable, Fast

Snapper Quality
As expected, this thing is built much better than big box store mowers.

Plenty of HP, and rear self-propel system is built much stronger than front-drive systems.

It's Snapper Time
I have no interest in mulching, too much land for that. But ordered the Ninja anyhow based on the comments in the reviews. It is a side discharge- a gold medal winner in my opinion.

I was skeptical about the Ninja blade, but I am a believer now. It is not just for mulching. It likes to cut up grass into little pieces regardless of how it is used.

This baby climbs hills! An area by a pond is so steep that my drink fell out of the holder as I was following the mower up hill. Could not make... more
