Bought this snapper to sell freshened it up a little today in between my gt 18 project. Will probably post it on here if anyone wants it. Got to put it back together now. Has an 8 hp tecumseh. It's a model 28085

You should buy it when it's done kenny I'll make you a good deal. Haha. Those things are pretty neat the way they are made. It's so small it only took me a day to tear it apart and re paint it. Not a good project mower for me to easy too get done

Those Snappers were one tough machine.  Put in a new set of steering bushing and a drive wheel in the spring and they was good for the year.  They would mow anything they could push down.  Not real comfortable to ride but beat the heck out of pushing a mower.

I'd like to find the snowblower for it or the plow, I'm sure that's impossible

I passed one up with a blower a few years ago, the whole package, tractor, deck, and blower only sold for around $40.
