Rear-wheel-drive better than front-wheel-drive

I got the front wheel drive version because it was a used returned model at the store for a really low price. Found 3 problems, 2 could live with 1 chose not to. The first 2 problems have been mentioned in other reviews, the pinching of the hands and the vibration and soreness of the wrists. Solved both by wearing my orange rubberized gloves ($1 at Aco Hardware) that I always wore before with my old mower anyway, and adjusting the angle of the handle to raise higher and change the angle on my wrists. Both problems solved. The 3rd problem was the front wheel drive belt jumping off the pulley frequently and requiring to be pushed back into place fives times in about 15 minutes. The manufacturer was very helpful on the phone. They spoke English, located in Wisconsin, answered my calls quickly, understood the problem and suggested I return my particular mower to the store for an exchange since it was less than 30 days old. I did that but unfortunately, Sears had no others like it, so I paid ~$70 more (still a good deal) for a rear-wheel-drive floor model also on sale. Having had the front-wheel-drive model to compare to, this rear-wheel-drive model is actually easier to use and so far is really nice to use. The rear-wheel-drive belt guard is a different design and the belt has not come off the pulley at all yet. Particularly impressed with the variable speed push drive system smoothness and effectiveness. Easy to push, responsive to changes in walking speed, easy to pull backward around shrubs and obstacles when needed without fighting the drive system since it disengages easily and automatically. Easy starting engine with no need for electric start or choke or push bulb as prior mowers I've owned. Four-wheel height adjustment is also a nice touch. So far have only used it with the mulching plug in mulching mode and have found it impressive in power and mulching ability with no clumping of grass clippings regardless of height or wetness of grass. Also like nice touches of gas additive holder in gas cap, and electronic hour meter and reminders for oil change, spark plug change and air filter change to help avoid problems due to lack of maintenance. All-in-all I very happy with my new rear-wheel-drive mower and it's quality & ease of use. I'll try to update this review after using the side chute and the rear bag. Thanks.

Terrible Design

I purchased this mower 11-10-2011 and did not use it until the spring of 2012 and can not return it because the 30 days are up. It keeps pinching my hands on the handle, bumping my wrist on the sides of the handle, you have to wear gloves to use this mower. It starts hard, the wheel covers keep fallin off, sears said to leave them off (ha ha) My wifes hands tingle because of the handles I can not take it back because the thirty days are up. I guess i should have blown snow to try it out before the thirty days were up. I am a retired design engineer, I think who ever designed this mower should mow a few yards with it and redesign it. I hope I can sell it in a garage sale.

Excellent Mower

I read much of people complaining of hard starting. I did not experience that at all. I opened the box, tightened all the screws, nuts and bolts, filled it with oil and gas. ONE PULL and the engine fired up with no issues and ran strong. During my first mow, I stopped and started the engine six times and each time it fired up and ran with one pull. The mower performed very well, no issues with how it cut, very even, and the personal drive system worked well for me. I gave it five stars as I am pleased with the performance, however, I experienced the collection of grass around the bag opening and it requires a little of clean up after you are done. Grass clippings get out of the bag and there is some accumulation of grass clippings that settle on the deck and around the hooks where the bag attaches to the mower, more of nuisance then anything else. The bag held a lot of grass and the clippings were cut up very fine and the bag filled to capacity and the mower never bogged down. I mowed Bermuda grass that was not wet at the time of the mow.

Great Mower

Lots of complaints made me weary about buying, but this was totally worth it. I got it on clearance so even better. Easy to handle and control, makes a big difference in how it cuts. No matter how hard I tried or how many times I sharpened the blade on my old mower it left "mohawks" and "crop circles". With this mower they are gone! A+++

Happy Camper in NH

<p>I own the previous generation model of this mower, with the exception that it has a key start (which i strongly recommend), and I absolutely love it.  I have been mowing lawns since I was a kid and 45+ years later I'm still at it.  I've owned a number of mowers over that time, including some very expensive ones (some of which were much more expensive Snappers). ??Currently using this mower on a half acre lot. ?I have to say this is one of the most versatile, reliable and rugged mowers I've ever owned, and by far the best for the price I paid for it!  This mower mulches as well as it bags!  I use it April through November. I have neighbors that own two mowers, one to bag and another to mulch, and my lawn looks better than theirs using this single mower. My advice is to buy this mower when it goes on sale.  I bought mine during a 20% off sale and got another 10% off for buying it during certain desinated hours.  One of the best investments I ever made!  I'm always checking out the latest version of this model because if mine ever dies I'll be getting another one. Three plus years later it shows no signs of giving out. I do keep it reasonably well maintained, start with fresh oil and change it two more times during the season,clean out the underchasis after each use and keep the balde sharp (like the oil, start with a sharp blade a get it sharpened 1-2 more times a season)l .  Oh, did I mention I once left my mower unattended at the top of my driveway. It rolled down my 70 foot incline driveway, through an intersection, across the street and came to rest half way up an elevated curb...that was a year and a half ago and it still operates like a champ.  Any question why I love this mower??!!</p>

The Snapper 700 is poorly designed.

Sounded great at store but after use, hand speed control proved impractical; removal of rear bag to empty not well thought out, not that easy to empty either. Rear wheels are too large and difficult to manuver around boulders, edges, etc. Would NOT recommend this to anyone. very disappointed and hoping to return it.

Terrible design

<p>I owned this for two weeks and returned it. It does not pull up hills well, it is hard to start, and I kept pinching my hand on the handle and bumping my wrist on the sides of the handle. By the time I was done cutting with it my wrists were sore.</p>
