Snapper RER Axle Boot Replacement

fruitjarflaDecember 27, 2009

I have a Snapper RER mower purchased in 2003. The rubber boots covering the rear axle are falling apart. A quick repair guess by the selling dealer is about $200 Â having to pull both rear wheels and other components plus $35 for pick up of the mower and return from the dealer. Does this sound reasonable? And is the repair a "must-do?" Any ideas as to a much easier alternative for covering the axles instead of the boots?

That estimate is not out of line at all. The transmission needs to be removed.
If the repair is not performed and dirt gets into the transmission count on a much more expensive job. You can pay a little now or a lot later, it's up to you. I have seen rags wrapped on with wire, hardly an effective fix.
