A Fair price to pay for a Snapper MZM2200KH

The mower has 52" deck and a 22 Hp Kohler. No issues. A very nice used mower.

Thanks

It's worth what you think it is worth, really. I'd do a local research to see what they are going for. Hard for us to do it.

How old is that unit ?

Since Snapper is now owned by Briggs & Stratton, I doubt that they've been mounting those Kohler engines lately.

Thanks. I done a google search for prices even Craiglist. Can't find a asking price anywhere on the net for this series. The mower is likely 10 years old. I know these are expensive to work on. I just don't want to over pay.

Thanks

I think it's been a good bit longer than that since they made these. Last time I checked, they didn't even offer parts for the joystick assembly anymore (the bushing blocks inside are a fairly common wear part). It makes them unuseable after a while when the joystick gets too sloppy and not being able to replace the worn parts is pretty frustrating when you have an otherwise decent machine. I think the price would hinge heavily on how tight that joystick control is so that you can get an idea of how much use you'll be able to get out of it before you can't control it well anymore.

No way would I be buying that old a mower.
There's just way to many newer ones on the market.
Do your self a favor and bit the bullet and buy a new one.

That's the kind of info I'm looking for. Anyone know the approximate year Snapper started with double sticks? Never operated a Z before. But I don't see how one stick could give enough control in real tight places.]

Thanks as always.]

I'm not sure when they started. Honestly, I wish they kept on with the joystick. I love the ability to have full control while sitting back with your arms rested beside you and just moving a little joystick around instead of hanging on to those big control arms out in front of you and having them in the way. If the bushings in the joystick controls are good and tight, you have complete control with that joystick and can spin it in place with no lateral movement. They are nice. If the controls are tight, I'd be a buyer if the price is right. I don't know what they're going for these days though.

Cheese, Thanks, you always have informative replies. As I mentioned in an earlier thread. I've never operated a Z rider of any make. It's my understanding that when say making a sharp left turn. The right wheel turns at normal speed. And the left wheel would turn backwards as in reverse? As to not burn the turf or dig down in the soil as a tractor would if you locked the left rear brake. Correct or not?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, when you turn sharply enough, the wheels on the outside of the turn radius go forward and the wheels on the inside of the radius go in reverse. In a full sharp turn, the mower will sit in one spot and spin like a top without moving anywhere.
