While it may be 'useable' I would never apply any torque to it and expect it to hold up. In fact NO it is not 'useable'...perhaps you could take it to a CNC machine shop and have them fab one up for you?

It would strip out easily when a load is put on it, and its going to be very noisy.

If a tooth (or teeth) break off, they could do a lot of damage to other parts.

Pics are awfully blurry, but I'd have to say not fit for use. Been looking, but not finding any parts for this.

Alright I have to show my ignorance. What is that gear out of? I'm not familiar with the 4850 model #. When I keyed that model# in Google I found a tiller? If that is the case could a complete used gearbox be easier to find than the gears?
See you are in Iowa and there are a couple tractor salvage yards in Jasper County, One in Colfax and 1 in Newton and I could get you contact information if it will help.

I was wrong on the manufacturer. Snapper says it was made by Durst. Should be the A160
They are right in my back yard.
