Snapper HI VAC Lawn Mowers Efficiently Cuts and Bags your Grass

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 24, 2020
Snapper P2185020

A great mower for bagging fans, the HI VAC® Mower Deck with its vacuum-like suction efficiently cuts and bags your grass. HI VAC Walk Mowers give your yard an ultra clean finish. This Snapper 21" walk-behind lawn mower also features a rear wheel drive system with high 10" rear wheels for superior traction on hills and thick grass. The reliable Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ OHV Engine keeps you going strong with professional-grade features, including ReadyStart® technology, quieter operation and increased durability.

Dependable Power

The Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ OHV Engine combines professional-grade power and performance with homeowner-friendly ease-of-use. Strong, quiet and durable, this engine comes standard with the ReadyStart® starting system: No priming. No choking. Just pull and go.

Grass Gripper Mower Traction

Rear-wheel drive improves walk-behind mower traction. The smooth-turn differential helps ensure easy maneuverability without damaging your grass.

Efficient Bagging

Similar to a vacuum, the HI VAC® Mower Deck efficiently cuts and sucks up grass clippings for a clean finish. The secret to the HI VAC® mower's cut is its unique blade and rolled deck edge that generates a large volume of air and creates suction.

Comfort Zone

Whether it's the speed select or the cup holder, the operator zone has everything within easy reach.

Durable Construction

Rugged solid steel front axle and stamped steel mower deck provide long-lasting performance season after season.

Better Maneuverability

10" high rear wheels easily glide through tall, thick grass.

Easily Pick the Cut

Change the height-of-cut with easy-to-use adjustment handles. Select the ideal cutting height for your lawn.

Tried and True

Snapper's proven disc drive transmission is a dependable speed adjustment system. Its higher wheel torque and control provides improved speed control on hills and helps pull through thick grass or rough terrain.

Snapper Ride-On Lawn Mowers Because Spring is On the Way!

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 18, 2020

The groundhog saw his shadow and so spring will be early this year! While it's only February, our winter has been fairly mild and March is right around the corner. Are you in the market for a new lawn mower this year? 

Take a big step up into a Snapper riding lawn mower. When you buy a Snapper, you get years of proven design, engineering and USA know-how. You get the all-steel construction - hood included - and the drive system with an automatic-style transmission. Both traits of higher priced models.

Dormant Lawn Seeding in February

The groundhog said we'll have an early spring! Now is a great time to take care of any bare spots you may have in your lawn. No bare spots in the lawn will mean no room for summer weeds to invade.

As long as the ground is not frozen, it is possible to dormant seed. Perennial Ryegrass works the best for this type of seeding due to its quick germination come spring.

Our Touch Up Blend is a blend of three perennial ryegrasses and is perfect for this. Don't worry if it snows! As snow on your lawn freezes and thaws, the seed is pushed deeper under the ground. If you choose to dormant seed, delay the application of Green-Up with Crabgrass Preventer until your new seedlings have been mowed 3x or use our Crabgrass Preventer plus New Seeding Fertilizer in the spring.

Choose Benjamin Moore Color of the Year for a Room in Your Home

Benjamin Moore revealed its Color of the Year 2020 as First Light 2102-70 – a soft, rosy hue blooming with potential. With a new decade on the horizon, Benjamin Moore took a fresh approach to mark this milestone. An approach that embraces and transcends color to re-examine the concept of the home as we know it.

“We selected First Light 2102-70 as our Color of the Year 2020 to represent a new dawn of idealism, design and living,” said Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore Director of Color Marketing and Development. "First Light 2102-70 reflects a new definition of the home – a shift in mindset from the material to satisfying the core needs in life: community, comfort, security, self-expression, authenticity and ultimately, optimism.”

This modern definition of dwelling replaces long-standing post-war ideals, shining light on a new era of design rooted in fluidity for the multigenerational, multifunctional and different states of mind now found under one roof. Ten harmonious hues have been selected to guide us into the next 10 years and beyond, the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2020 palette features:

  • First Light 2102-70
  • White Heron OC-57
  • Crystalline AF-485
  • Windmill Wings 2067-60
  • Buxton Blue HC-149
  • Golden Straw 2152-50
  • Thunder AF-685
  • Crushing Green HC-125
  • Oxford Gray 2128-40
  • Blue Danube 2062-30

“The Color Trends 2020 palette plays an integral role in supporting these core human ideals,” said Magno. “Color is powerful but highly subjective, especially through the lens of different generations, relationships and moods. But from the saturated to bright and airy, all are easy to live with and easy to love--whether they stand alone, in a strong pair, or all cohabitate.”

The richness and nuance demonstrated through the Color of the Year and Color Trends 2020 palette can only be achieved with Benjamin Moore products. Offering residential and commercial paints for any project, the Benjamin Moore portfolio includes Aura®, Aura® Bath & Spa, Regal® Select, Ultra Spec®, Natura®, ben®, ADVANCE®, ARBORCOAT® and Aura® Grand Entrance®. All 3,500 Benjamin Moore colors are available in pint samples at Monnick Supply along with Color Trends 2020 curated palette cards.
