A store near my home has these two Snapper models:

1. Snapper 560Z, 52 inches, FR730V 24 HP Motor, ZT-3200, Deck Gauge # 10
2. Snapper Pro S50XT, 48 inches, B&S Commercial Series 25 HP Engine, ZT-3100, Deck ICD Cutting

My yard is two acres, I prefer the Kawasaki engine, between these two decks which has the best cut quality. For your experiences what are the pros and cons on these two zero turn mowers.
Thanks for the comments.

I suggest you ask dealer to deliver both models to your home to try out yourself. If he says no then go try them out at dealership providing he has a yard with grass. If you're a serious consumer they should accommodate you if they want to make a sale.

The problem is that it is not a Snapper store, it is a reseller that does not allow testing of its ZTR mowers.

Thanks for your comments. I currently have a 42-inch craftsman tractor, it is not a ZTR, it is 14 years old, I do not complain about the service it has provided. I want to buy a new tractor and wish recommendations. My doubt in these two Snapper tractors is the engine because in this forum many people indicate that the Kawasaki engine is much better than the other brands. The Briggs & Stratton Commercial as compared to the Kawasaki in quality and power. The deck the Snapper Pro is ICD Cutting as compared to the deck Model 560Z in cut quality is similar or has a big difference. The Snapper Pro S50XT has smaller tires than the Model 560Z, my doubt if having small tires has problems getting stuck in non-flat terrain.
