John Deere JS40
First time posting on this board. I've done some searches on this model but didn't find exactly what I was looking for.
I've seen postings that say this mower has some Snapper parts. I did a little research and it appears that it is all but identical to the Snapper Easy Line SPV21S. Even the price is the same. The only difference I can see aside from color is that the engine is an upgrade on the JD, Intek 7 with cast iron sleeve vs. Quantum 6.5, and the JD has a spring loaded plug on top of the grass chute where the bag connects.
Does anyone have experience with this mower or the Snapper SPV21S?
Since it is a 3 in 1, I assume the blade is a compromise between mulching and bagging ability. Would dedicated blades for mulching and bagging be available from Snapper?
