General info

1.Is gas-powered
Snapper SPX2246
A gas-powered lawn mower offers several benefits over an electric one. For example, the increased power allows them to easily cut through longer/tougher grass, and they are not limited by cord length or how long the battery lasts.
2.Has electric start
Snapper SPX2246
Sometimes it can be hard to start gas-powered lawn mowers, but with an electric starter you can be guaranteed of it starting first time.
3.Has side discharge
Snapper SPX2246
The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.
4.Is cordless
Snapper SPX2246
Cordless tools/machines are suited to a variety of different situations, as you are not limited to only working in places with power sources nearby.
5.Is self-propelled
Snapper SPX2246
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.
6.fuel tank capacity

13l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.

Cut quality

1.maximum cutting height

102mm

A higher cutting height is needed when your lawn doesn’t have optimum conditions, for example when there is extreme heat or cold, as a longer leaf allows it to stay healthy.
2. wider cutting width

117cm

With a wider cutting width you will have to make less passes when mowing your lawn, reducing the time it takes. This is especially important if you have a large lawn.
3.number of cutting height settings

3

A higher number of cutting height settings give you more versatility to choose the optimum length for your lawn, based on prevailing conditions.
4.cutting height ratio

2.7

The cutting height ratio indicates the ratio between the minimum and maximum cutting heights, providing more versatility when choosing the optimum cutting length for your lawn.
5.Has mulching feature
Snapper SPX2246
With a mulching feature the grass cuttings are further cut into finely chopped grass which is then expelled onto the lawn, fertilising it and making it more drought resistant. This also means you do not have to empty a grass bag/box.
6.turn radius

36cm

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn that can be made. With a smaller turn radius, it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth to turn around.

Performance

1.Has an overhead valve engine
Snapper SPX2246
An overhead valve (OHV) engine is usually found in high-end models, and provides more power and fuel economy than a side valve design.
2.engine size

0.6l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3. faster reverse speed

3.5km/h

A faster reverse speed makes it quicker to turn around and manoeuvre.
4.horsepower

22hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.number of cylinders

2

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

Features

1.Has variable speed
Snapper SPX2246
A lawn mower with variable speed is beneficial because you may wish to slow down or speed up based on the area you are mowing, for example going slower when making tight turns around a tree.
2.Has headlights
Snapper SPX2246
With headlights you can mow your lawn in low-light conditions.
3.Easy height-adjustment
Snapper SPX2246
You can adjust the height of all four wheels at once, as opposed to some lawn mowers where you have to adjust each wheel separately. This makes it quicker and simpler to adjust the height of the lawn mower.
