There are two main options when you are looking at buying a Snapper Riding Lawn Mower. You have the Snapper 7800545 LT130 AWS Series 46-Inch 23-Horsepower Briggs & Stratton ELS Twin Riding Lawn Mower and the Snapper 5900748 355Z Series 54-Inch 26-Horsepower Briggs & Stratton Riding Mower. Both are very powerful machines that will get the job done. If you have a large yard with plenty of hills and sturdier grass, then you might want to go with the 26-horsepower option, but it usually comes down to price.
