Snapper S50x Zero Turn Radius Commercial Lawn Mower – Review

The Snapper S50x zero turn radius commercial mower is an affordable commercial lawn mower with all the features that you expect from a Snapper. It is available with either a 27 horsepower Briggs & Stratton Professional Series engine or a 20 horsepower Kawasaki FX engine.  Most people prefer the Kawasaki for its dependability.  Because of its speed and maneuverability this little mower with a 36″ deck can out cut much larger mowers with larger cutting decks.   Also, twin 4 gallon fuel tanks ensure a long run time with less refueling.
