Snapper Hi-vac riding lawn mower, circa 1983
I'm wondering if i might have a legitimate gripe about the mower mentioned above.
Today, after chopping and picking up many leaves, this thing finally decided it just wasn't going to do any more work, so it just sat there and jerked a bit, but wouldn't move very far!
I bought the machine, new, in 1983, and have used it all of these following years, and this was the thanks i got from it--after i gave it garage space and never made it sit out in the weather! I even gave it several new drive belts in those years! And faithfully changed the oil. I even gave it a newer engine, and now, here i am, with 6 zillion leaves to pick up, and nothing!
You fellers wouldn't think maybe the rubber tired drive wheel just might have lost its cool, and just gave up, would ya? Guess I'll have to look at it, tomorrow, and maybe invest in a new one--wheel, that is!
