Yeah the times they are a changing. My dad went and looked at a new snapper the other day and he said it had a computer system on it like a car. Wtf!?! I guess now we are going to have to take our mower in and get raped at the dealer every time it has a hiccup or needs serviced. Remember this is hearsay but if it's true it really ticks me off.I picked up 2 more cc's this summer and I'm not too keen on some of the fancy parts. Hydro-something or other? What the!
