    I inherited an old Snapper Hi-Vac mower. Everything but the blade is in fairly good shape. I measured it and its 20.5" long.
    Is there a specific type of blade I should replace this one with? I couldn't find any info on Snapper's website.

    How bad is it? Did you try sharpening + balancing it?

    I had Snapper Hi-Vac.... one of the best walkbehinds I've ever owned. Ran well and bagged beautifully. 8 trouble free years (1989-1997) with 1x/year tune up + oil change.

    The cutting edge looks like a steak knife. If a new blade costs $15-$20 than its not worth my time to try to refresh this one.
    This mower is from around 1985.
