    Hello all...

    I am going to an auction in the morning that has a 2002 Snapper pro 48 walk behind in it. The mower comes with 2 sets of jungle wheels, one is new in the box. The engine has 300 hours on it. The mower is in excellent condition, not perfect but close. It is not running. I know where it came from and have been told it just won't start, ran last season.

    What do you think this thing is worth, where should I stop bidding...??

    Thanks for any help

    Better hope that you dont need to replace the coil. Or maybe it just neds a sparkplug. Otherwise your loosing money. Idk, I think you should hold off and keep looking. Unless you can get it super cheap where you wont loose money, good luck tho.

    Wouldnt that be funny if you just had to buy a sparkplug and it fired right up, man, you would have made a huge bargan. Good luck tho.

    Lets hope it's as easy as a plug. I did pull the plug tonight, it's so fouled. Drained all the fuel and going to get a tune kit for it this weekend I hope.

    There were a couple other lawn services there bidding as well, but I had an unknown friend do the bidding for me. The owner of one of the services bid on it heavy, that told my friend how he just paid way to much when we won it :laugh:

    I hope it all works out, it's a nice unit.

    I'll let you know!
