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.
Louis Harris: Have you had any issues with the clutch. I have a different 28 inch model,
but I just blew out the clutch. Hoping the dealer stands by their
Edwin Rojas: I thought in order for the engine to stay on while you got off the machine,
all you had to do was engage the clutch into park, at least that's how my
redsnapper1970: Nice mower, but it just doesn't have the character or the ease of replacing
belts and discs as the older snapper RER's
Hurricane Floyd: They should have left the 50 year old Snapper RER design alone. This thing
was designed for people with bony butts that complain about the old models.
It is now built like an old Murray RER or Simplicity RER. Time will show
that Snapper should have left things alone.
rio5aliveable: Thanks for the comprehensive review! It's probably a good model for whats
available this yr, but imo it cant hold a candle to my 1999 13hp 30"
Coronet. I can slam between fwd & reverse at will while mowing w/o killing
the engine plus turn at 12" radius. Considering the lower price pt I don't
expect Simplicity to keep the same build standards they used to have. After
all most mfg's look to implement cost reductions into future models. But
for an more entry level mower it looks decent.
windsurfed1: The only thing I don't like is while its running, if you get off the seat
the engine quits running. I like to get off my machine sometimes and maybe
pick up something that might be in the way then get back on without the
engine quitting. I know that's a safey feature but I don't like it. They
other thing is it rides a little rough. My other riders rode rough also so
maybe I am expecting too much from a 2013 rider. Those are the only 2
negative things I can think of. Otherwise it is GREAT!
Burkeley Stinson: Did yours come with that temporary head light cover because I orderd the re
130 and it dint coome with my mower
windsurfed1: Yes, it is different, You set the park brake and get off the engine will
Rick James: Where did you get your new engine. Local dealer wanted $800 plus shipping
and labor for a 10HP for my old 1028.
bdokey2: If I get a small riding mower your video helped me. Glad you fired it up,
you looked pretty bad-ass coming at the cam !
William Presley: I know typically you can get off the machine while it's running if you
disengage the blade, set the parking brake and put the transmission in
neutral. Maybe that's different now.
Outdoorsben3: How many ignition switches have you gone through? I'm going on my third in
Burkeley Stinson: Hey guys I this is like the only other reveiw for this mower please wach ky
channel to see my snapper series while I reveiw the re 130
Outdoorsben3: I don't know, sounds like they are junk switches. Once you start to have
issues it only gets worse. Seems to be a large scale issue, I doubt there
will be any recall because I don't think Snapper cares much. I'm going to
talk to my dealer about getting something else. I can'y rely on a machine
that lasts me only a month before it hits the shop.
William Presley: Thanks for this. Glad to find out the body under the seat is metal. My
Dad's John Deere GX85 rider's plastic body cracked into pieces over the
MuzzaHukka: Is there a way to make this road legal? Does the documentation or the
chassis/engine mention a VIN number? Because here in the UK, as with some
states in the US, you can register it. You can ride a mower with no limit
on power from the age of 16 here, instead of 17, so it'd be great if I
could fit an overkill powerplant in it
Burkeley Stinson: Yea i loved it so much that i orderd the re130 and cant wait untill it gets
here so even with the re100 can it handle fairly tall grass and can it pull
things because i have a dump cart for it and i want to know if it can
handlr it thank you so much
Miguel Rodriguez: That's right Mr hurricane
windsurfed1: Maybe someday, but not in the near future, Sorry!
yogeetarzan: there is big different between stamped tin and forged steel.. older Snapper
are built heavier..
flathead846: Cool review---I'll be eating a Doggoner when I watch it again::::know who
Burkeley Stinson: Im thinking about getting the 110 how well does it mow and anything bad
about it but great video thanks
HenrysLawnService: This is rust
Eastendbiilythekid: Nice little ride man
yogeetarzan: this is metal, this is metal, this metal.. what metal???? it all cheaply
made.. I just repowered my 30 years old Snapper RE.. and it's made from
knightrider1545: Now if only If they made a RE 300 For commercial use and put a Maxxforce DT
in it, that would be sweet.
Confusedsole86: Just to correct a few things there are other differences in the models more
than you are describing, and also the RE-100 model is a 10FT pounds of
torque, it is not a 10HP engine, more like a 6-8HP engine. Other than that
the RE-110 is the same as the 100 other than a larger engine. The RE-130
has a lager 32" deck rather than the 28" deck on the previous 2 models and
a lager engine yet.
Camden Dunkertly: That mower is so cool I love it
windsurfed1: It's Just the right size for my postage stamp size yard. Takes me about 15
minutes to mow the yard. I would just purchase the same one.
Burkeley Stinson: Thank you so much for the video its so hard to find videos on it if you can
could you make a video of it in action i cant really see you use it at the
end of the first video thanks again
windsurfed1: Ok, so I have My friend, a great small engine mechanic, come over to
investigate the issue. After an hour or so of checking all swiches and the
things that push them, and the starter relay, We pretty much traced it down
to the starter. Looks like the issue is in the starter itself.
windsurfed1: Don't know if the disk drive will last but knowing the snapper reputation,
it probably will last longer than I will live. Don't know about the bagger
part yet. When I made the video in april the bags weren't even available
windsurfed1: I have only used it once so far to cut the yard. I am happy the way it
cuts. Not overly joyed where I am jumping up and down and not really sad
where I want to bash the machine with sledge hammer. It cuts well, I am
scott o: i bought the same mower what a piece of junk now have it for sale after 3
uses and having my old snapper rider repaired
scott o: yep junk
Hurricane Floyd: Good ol Briggs hiding the real power of their engines these days.
dapsapsrp: So is this one. If they do not use plastic for components they use steel.
The word "metal" is often used to represent steel. It's just another way of
saying it. Do you not get that? I have a new RE210 made mostly from stamped
steel parts. Guess what, your 30 y/o snapper RE whatever is also made from
yogeetarzan: I salvaged the engine from junked MTD mower.. B&S no longer producing flat
head engines.. You can find better deals on Small Engine Warehouse, check
Surplus Center, they sometime have manufacture "pull offs"..
windsurfed1: These are mean little machines and I think they can cut fairly tall grass
as for towing something I suppose it can as long as it's not too heavy
stonehallagri5465: who much does it cost?
Miguel Rodriguez: I just got a new snapper ninja self propelled mower! I will post a video on
it soon. Nice mower!
Burkeley Stinson: Right now I on part 1
windsurfed1: I have been having some ignition switch issues. I have Not had to replace
it yet. That doesn't sound good. Have you found out why the reason is that
you have to taste so many switches?
george washington: Thanks very much for taking the time to inform us novices! If you had to do
it over, would you purchase a bigger model or a different mower?
mike baxter: Nice review. Im a huge Snapper fan. Would not own any other mower than a
rer snapper. I grew up owning John deers and cub cadets mowing 4 acres.
With all the belts and hard to work on it was awful. Something went wrong
with other mowers your down hours. A snapper nope. Too easy to work on.
Plus the disc drive gives you 2x the mowing power. I bought my first
snapper 5 years ago and WOW im amazed. These things are a beast!! Ive never
had to replace anything. Well built.
Confusedsole86: The RE-210 has the largest engine with 14.5HP, but ALSO has larger front
steer tires, a front headlight and IS installed already, and is Hydro
