We welded the gears on today. The gear boxes do not look cheaper in fact they look more heavy duty than the 10 year old one. This failure is apparently a manuf defect. Just not enough interference to hold the gear in place. Maybe the 110F temp we have been operating in has an influence. I heard today that snapper is just about finished as a name brand.
