Snapper LT130 Review

Thank you for visiting our Snapper LT130 review page.

Another chance to review a tractor mower always gets pulses racing. Snapper have a range of lawn tractors. We chose the Snapper LT130 (also known as the Snapper 7800545 LT130).

Snapper LT130  – Product Details

The Snapper LT130 lawn tractor has a Briggs & Stratton ELS™ V-Twin OHV Engine and that is the cornerstone of this machine. Powerful and reliable you really can’t go wrong with a B & S engine. Snapper LT130 review image

The All Wheel Steer system makes this a very manoeuvrable tractor. Basically what this means is that the wheels all turn at the same time, but in opposite directions (see image). This makes the turning circles a lot tighter.

In fact, you can expect a 14 inch turning circle. And it’s this manoeuvrability which makes this tractor mower ideal if you have curved borders, or trees / bushes / plants in the middle of your garden.

The cutting height adjustment is made easy through an electric push button blade engagement system.

The seat is sprung loaded – making the LT130 a very comfortable ride. A soft touch steering wheel provides comfort to hands and wrists and there is a cup holder – for those hot, thirsty days.

Summary

A good lawn tractor, which beats the competition with its comfort and manoeuvrability. If you are looking for a bit more versatility in your tractor mowers, then you need to be aware that there are fewer attachments available for the LT130 compared with the Husqvarna YTH23V48.

Good Points :

  • Reliable Briggs & Stratton engine.
  • Tight turning capacity.
  • Comfortable ride.

Areas for Improvement :

  • Being a 4 wheel steer, it can be a little heavy to steer at low speeds, but that’s not an issue if you are on the move. Certainly the tightness of the turns more than makes up for this. Our top tip is not to try to turn the wheels when stationary.

Other things to be aware of :

  • This is non-carb compliant and therefore not for sale in California.
  • The rear bag and mulching kits are sold separately.

Husqvarna YTH23V48 Review

Thank you for visiting our Husqvarna YTH23V48 Review.

Being the ‘little boys’ that we are, we couldn’t wait to review Husqvarna YTH23V48 Tractor Mower. Okay to be fair, it’s every gardener’s dream to own a tractor mower (or at least have a go at one time or another).

The Husqvarna Group are a world leader when it comes to outdoor power products. And in particular, their tractor mowers are owned not only by private individuals, but also corporate bodies, both of whom are looking for solidly built units, at an affordable price.

Husqvarna YTH23V48 – Product Details

Husqvarna YTH23V48 review imageThe Husqvarna YTH23V48 is more than just a lawn tractor. Thanks to the impressive array of attachments (purchased separately), you can really make this into a multi-purpose utility vehicle for all seasons.

When considering the tractor in itself however, it is important to appreciate that this isn’t just a jack of all trades – but it actually masters most of them as well.

Powered by a Briggs Stratton Intek V-Twin two-cylinder engine, you can quite easily zip along at over 5mph. Cruise control is available to guarantee a steady even cut, even if you are working an incline.

The seat is fully adjustable to ensure the most comfortable of rides, even if you plan to have a long day in the saddle. There is even a cup holder for those hot grass-cutting days.

A water hose can be connected via a port to make cleaning of the underside of the deck relatively easy.

Grass cutting has never been easier, or more comfortable. If you have a large piece of flat land, then this tractor mower is a must.
