The Snapper ZT2142 zero turn lawnmower is the more powerful of the 2 models in the Snapper 150Z series of zero turn lawnmowers. It’s powered by a Briggs and Stratton Professional Series engine. This one cylinder engine produces 21 hp. The engine is started by a 12 volt battery which supplies 340 cold cranking amps to the engine. The engine transfers power to the wheels by first passing through a Hydro Gear EZT transmission. This is a hydrostatic transmission which gives the ZT 2142 infinite gears traveling forwards as well as in reverse. The top speed of the lawnmower is 8.9 kph (5.5 mph).

The engine is fueled by a gas tank that holds up to 11.4 liters (3 US gallons) of gasoline. Speed on the Snapper ZT2142 is controlled by cog brakes. The rear tires on the ZT 2142 measure 18×8.5-8 (18 inch diameter, 8.5 inch width, 8 inch rim diameter), while the front wheels each measure 11×4-4 (11 inch diameter, 4 inch width, 4 inch rim diameter). You’ll notice that the front tires are absolutely tiny compared to the rear ones due to the fact that they do little more than keep the mower deck above the ground. The rear wheels are responsible for both the direction and speed of the zero turn lawnmower. The speed of the rear wheels is controlled by the lap bars in front of the driver.

The cutting width of the mower deck on the Snapper ZT2142 comes to 42 inches. Most other brands with mower decks this wide usually have 2 or 3 blades. However this one only has one large blade. This blade can be adjusted up and down from a low of 1.5 inches above the ground to 3.75 inches above the ground. The other model in the Snapper 150Z series of zero turn lawnmower is the Snapper ZT18533, although it’s not quite as powerful as the Snapper ZT2142 lawn mower.
