my 11 yr old 21 inch walk behind self propelled snapper died, (part of the short shaft on transmission was damaged) .
Neighbor sold me an almost identical 2 yr old snapper fro a great price.
what parts should I salvage off the old mower.?
any advice?


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Well if your plan is to keep the newer one running for the next 20 years, I would keep the old mower if you have a place to store it. If not, then remove the blade, engine, wheels, wheel adjusters, drive assembly. Pretty much strip the deck and keep the spare parts. Keep the cables as they tend to snap.

I'd be keeping the whole mower if it was me.

Typically decks rust out before anything else.
