You could just Over tighten the nuts till they snap off.Good heavy breaker bar and a pipe or 2 and they will be apart in a couple minutes.

Hey, why not combine all the ideas together: a couple garden hoses, torch (for lighting grass and twigs on fire), lawn chair and cooler, a shovel and rake to stamp out any rouge embers and a few tools to unbolt those pesky bolts once the fires out. The way I see it you'd be taking care of the brush (saving the snapper), applying some heat to the bolts and getting some much needed relaxation while you waited for the fire to do all the work.

Okay, so this isn't advisable and it tends to get the neighbors on your case and it probably isn't all that great for the farm machinery you're trying to save but from a distance it sure seemed logical to me for a brief moment.  :D

 

Hope it all works out.

Ok, got the disc out.  Overtightened to bust off bolts.  Will work great as is once I hacksaw the cant adjustment crank.shorter (bumps rear tractor fender).  No added weight needed for the disc, she cuts great.  Working on getting  bar tires for the rear (and maybe front).  My brother-in-law owes me several favors and says he may already have an almost new set on a craftsman given to him which he blew up almost immediately.  Those would be free and mounted on rims that might fit.  If not, he works for a tire shop  and has for years and can get new ones for 5% above their cost. :dancingbanana:  :bounce:  :wave: The disc 001.JPG Oh forgot, the back gang is out too and will be parted out and remains scrapped I'm thinking.

Looks like they will work the Snapper good, but with bar tires, you should be OK

If you don't find another purpose or home for the rears, make sure you save a couple of discs etc for spare parts for when one breaks or a hub goes bad.

If you were closer, I'd like to have those rears! That should put the Snapper to work!
