I bought my first Snapper 1855 for $100 from a farmer who bought it new from who is now my father in law. He was mowing with it one day and got off of it in search of his ice chest. When he did he kicked the hi-low lever in neutral and when he got back on it would not move. He pushed it into his shed and it sat there till next spring when I called him about it. We settled on $100 and pushed it up on my trailer. I took it home put fresh gas in it and charged the battery and it fired right up. I moved the hi-low lever to hi and backed it off the trailer. That was in 2009 and I mowed with it till 8-1-11 when we were hit by a tornado, having rebuilt the deck with all new bearings and belts just a month before. The first photo shows it under a 24x16 ft over head door lying on top of it. I bought it back from the insurance company and started the restoration on it last winter. Built this roll around cart so I could raise it up as I sand blast or paint. Sorry I didn't think to get some good before photos, but I will continue to post as the restoration progresses.
