    Well I bought this Snapper 48" Pro Hydro Walkbehind 1998 Model: SPLH140KH for $850.00 had no major problems hydro, deck belts, and deck rollers where all a little worn. But the most major one of all is front caster is bent a little semi-fixed Well here is some Before-During-After Pictures While I painted it.

    I am currently looking for a good deal on a grass catcher at this point. It has a 14hp Kohler Command, Used it when we first got it before any work was done on it. It cut like crap, We think it had orginal blades on it sharpened a bunch they where as dull as day. But after new belts and blades cut 200% Better.

    I just bought a Snapper as well, a 96' Pro 752 Belt Drive. I've no major mechanical problems either, starts on first pull, only had to replace a PTO switch. Got it an a 5x10 trailer for $800.

    Anyway, what paint did you use ? The frame on mine is a bit faded but ok, but the deck could use some help :weightlifter:
