    I have a snapper zero radius problem - It turns to the left without any problem but when I want to go to the right it makes a loud buzzing type noise and I have to lay on the joy stick hard several times to make it steer to the right.. The hydraulic oil seems to be full.. I also would like to know where I can get a service manual for repair on this Lawn mower.. thanks in advance...

    you might try snapper's web site and see about the mauals... I know that you can download the manuals on most mower web sites. About the hydrolic problem, you might try changing the hydro oil and filter. Make sure you put the right kind of oil back in too. Just a thought...

    Sounds like a pump going out to me or a problem with the joystick. Try moving the joystick and see if the pump linkage moves as much as the left one does. If so then i'd say you've got a pump going out.
