New Walk-Behind From Snapper Pro® Meets The Demands Of Commercial Mowing Crews

MUNNSVILLE, NY (March 17, 2014) – The new SW35 dual hydrostatic walk-behind was built from the ground up to meet the demands of professional cutters.  Featuring a cruise control bar and independent steering with speed indicator, this newly designed walk-behind provides the operator with smoother, user-friendly operation and a multitude of control options.

Ergonomic hand controls let the user change direction quickly from left to right, or pull the handles up completely for reverse.  The controls operate with a light touch to reduce operator fatigue and the control tensions can be fine-tuned for different operators and condition.  A centralized foot control puts the unit in neutral.  The operator can stop the mower blades simply by putting the mower in the neutral position and releasing the operator presence handles, while the engine continues to run.  It's a great feature that improves productivity and is found on all new FW35 models.

There are three SW35 models from which to choose.  Powerful Kawasaki® 20.5 or 23.5 gross horsepower* FX series engine options are paired with a choice of 48”, 52” and 61” cutting widths.  Decks are constructed of rugged 10-gauge steel with double top deck, overlap welded corners and double reinforced side skirts, and a steel reinforced leading edge.

Key features include independent, commercial Hydro-Gear® ZT-3100® transaxles, a ground speed of up to 7 mph, cutting height adjustments from 1.5” to 4.75”, and a 5-gallon fuel tank.  Mow up to 3.5 acres/hour based on 80% efficiency.

Standard advertised prices for the SW35 line-up start at $5,59911.  For more information, visit
