Old Snapper Walk Behind

    Question for you all.... My uncle was cleaning out his shed during the winter and I was hauling the junk away for him when I came across this old Snapper. He informed me it was given to him from a buddy at work, anyway to make a long story short, I brought it home an cleaned the carb, put a new plug in it and it fired right up. I was bored over the winter so I applied a coat of paint to it. It cleaned up well and I was wondering if anyone knows what something like this might be sold for? It has an 8hp Briggs I/C, appears to be an 30" cut, 5 speed transmission and a brake band type steering system. It came what looks like a hi-lift blade and mulching blade. Everything works and I dropped the deck down low in the back field and it seems to cut well. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    $300-400 depending on wear on parts

    For a machine that old (Late 80's) you might be able to get $250-$350 for it.

    Heck, I'd just keep it. For what you have into it, you can't get hurt. It MAY just come in handy some day.

    I agree with Runner. I Maybe $300. It would make a good backup or mower for smaller lawns.
