I will try to scan & post a Snapper manual for you. ...I don't have anything on the 11hp B&S engine.


I just went through my Snapper info and I'm sorry to say I do NOT have a manual for your model Snapper. .....My info is for earlier years.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. :(

Thanks for the efforts, according to info I've gotten., '...it is a 28" deck, with 8 h.p. motor and a Series 5 rider.' Is there a way for me to A) narrow down yrs. of production and B) use info from a comparable model to get more familiar with the parts on this model?

I'm guessing that series 5 is from the 80's and I'm trying to orient myself w/ the pic you posted.

These are really simple to work, after you understand them.

Here's my old girl, I call her Old Faithful. It misses a bit and burns a lot of oil, but it always starts.

I have just finished uploading the Parts Manual and the Service Manual that includes the Series 5 RERs. Links to download them are below.

Snapper RER Series 4 & 5 Parts Manual:

http://gardentractor...5-parts-manual/

Snapper RER Series 4, 5, 6 and Later - Service Manual:

I'm still looking for the Operator's Manual for your RER. If I find it I will upload it to the manuals section.

Thank you for posting these manuals! ....A software glitch is preventing my "Thanks" button from registering my appreciation to you.

We were Snapper dealers from 1964-1983, and in that time Snapper never had a Service Manual. ....There were some service seminars, but they never had such a comprehensive manual.
