BURKELEY STINSON: After having this mower for about a week I got rid of it. It's quality really disappointed me. When you get on all you hear is squeaks and mine was actually missing a few bolts. There were little things all over the mower that were just terribly designed. I would never get a snapper product again and I've moved on up to zero turns but overall I don't think this mower was worth it at all.
windsurfed1: Well, Thanks for the comments, However, The mower is still doing well in my book. I have the rear bag now and am well pleased how the whole unit comes off quickly if need be. Also am pleased how the bag detaches to empty the grass. It cuts very well and uniform at above 2.5 inches but below that it tends not to be a perfect cut at times. Without the bag, mowing, it tends to leave a mess of grass all over. With the bag, mowing, it leaves a beautiful lawn. With the bag unit, seems to be a bulky piece of equiptment. Still have some issues with the starter switch. After the new battery, which Help the issue, but didn't solve it, I replaced the switch. That worked for a while but didn't solve the problem totally, Still every once in a while, when turning the key, I get nothing but a click. Second attempt seems to work. However, it really should not be an issue at all but it still is. Overall, I still am happy with the overall performance of the mower and the quality of it all.
Papa Ritz: Thank you, decent video.
Hoogoose D. Moose: I have a brand new 2014 RE-100 and so far am regretting my purchase.. it barely has enough power to propel itself forward once the mower deck is engaged.. tried to do my first mow of the season and the dang thing gets stuck on dry flat terrain trying to make a turn.. my neighbor laughed at me and said he owned one for a month and took it back as he hated it. I made a call to the dealer hoping its defective...
Love2boat92: Great video. I'm surprised to see so much metal on it. Wow. Even a metal gas tank. Very cool.
Daehawk: Do older Snappers of this model have a headlight?
Alex Yamach: I bought the RE-130 33 Inch 12.5 HP Model. It's a well built machine but was disappointed in some things with it. There are no notches to hold the speed handle in place. When you ride, the vibration and bumps force the speed handle forward and the mower keeps going faster. I have to hold the handle in place to keep the speed constant. When going fast and making a turn the front wheel lifts up like you are pulling a wheeley. The ride is HARD, you FEEL a bump when you hit one and you FEEL a hole when you hit one. It didn't handle high grass well and the engine started to stall. I had a 4 bladed mulching blade put on it and it wouldn't cut the grass until I lowered the deck to almost scraping the ground. The only really good thing was that it steered and turned very easily.
mack1ford: the only thing i dont like is no recoil start
joshmaster618: Good overview video I really liked it the only thing is you didn't mention the price. What the retail On that unit ?
MightyLawns T.V.: i love this vid...been trying to find a small enough rider mower to fit in my van...and i found...great vis...please make more of this mower cutting at diff. speeds ..thanks so much!
Tom Foolious: Just got my second house and looking into a small riding mower. Don't think my reel mower will fit the bill for this house as the yard is quite a bit bigger! I'm looking at the RE130 2014 Model. I'm seeing some negatives in the comments of this video...and I'm not sure if this question is answered already through the comments, but can I be comfortable that Snapper may have fixed the battery issues with the 2014 model? What is your opinion?
windsurfed1: Put a new starter switch in 2 weeks. So far it starts every time. That with the combination of the new battery hopefully will take care of this starting issue. But overall I still really like this lawn mower.
glen john: if it cuts anything like my 2014 33inch cut. I bet you hate it by now. I have owned nothing but snapper sense 1974 but wont ever buy another one.
windsurfed1: I think I bought a bike master battery. The battery work great for the first three weeks. During that time I did not have any issues Then the mower sat for three weeks. I got it out and it started right up. Turned it on several times within the next hour and everything worked fine. Then when I went to put it away I had that starting issue again. I believe the battery gets drained to a point where it does not have enough power to turn it over. Don't know for sure. This starting issue is getting to be a big thing. And yes it is starting to bother me. It's really a nice mower except for the starting issue. It's a communist plot to make us want to buy foreign products. P
therealjimguy: Boy Briggs and Stratton ruined what once was a delightful machine! That thing doesnt hold a candle to my 1994 model snapper. Cheap no recoil backup cheap no footpads cheap tin fuel tank to rust and clog their cheap pot metal carburetor! but i bet the price tag is as big as ever!
windsurfed1: I understand people have been having starting issues with this mower I likewise experienced this. You would go and trurnthe key and nothing would happen. Then you would turn the key off and turn it back on again and it might start. Sometimes you would have to go through this process several times before it would catch. I finally traced it down to a bad battery from the factory.Not before I suspected other things first. I replace the battery with a quality battery and have not had any starting issues since. Fires right up now. Hope this helps anyone>
roy1795: 3 weeks later: Battery is dead. Won't start. Very unhappy with this purchase!
Joe Sauls: There are some switches or wires to pull so you can get off the mower while it still is on, all you have to do is put on the parking brake.
roy1795: Thank you for the very informative video. I just bought a 2014 RE-100. Just got it today. Hope I made a good purchase.
windsurfed1: No clutch issues here. Thought I had ignition switch or starter problem but turned out to be a bad battery that came with the mower.
