I have five tractors, three running. My MTD 990 has a stack that I don't like, my Bolens H16 has the horizontal stack I don't like all too noisy. My Sears SS15 has the original pepper shaker muffler smooth idling, nice strong but quite sound as it revs up. I have seen a lot of the pepper shakers but most look like a tin can with holes punched in it & would probably last one year. I don't want to buy a used muffler because the baffles may be gone. I know as good as original would be hard to find but do any of you have an aftermarket brand that you would recommend. I guess I'm getting old & would like to be able to think while I'm having my seat time. Thanks!

Take the pepper can and slip a length of exhaust pipe over it.

The pepper shaker I have on the Sears works & sounds great. It's the stacks on the others I want to replace with a pepper shaker.

The cub mufflers sold on eBay have a good low tone. I had one on a 990 Briggs. Thought it sounded great. They're inexpensive and most have free shipping.

"if it's too loud, you're too old"  :poke: :poke:

 

just kidding Jim. I too am getting "too old", I wear ear plugs or muffs when I'm using pretty much any of my equipment these days. Doc's said I haven't but I can tell I've lost some hearing over the years.

I don't they make any of those anymore. The ones I have gotten get loud real soon after they heat up.

Haven't tried one of these.

Okay. I was suggesting adding a length (8 - 12") of maybe 2 1/2" exhaust pipe over the muffler to make it look cooler and give a deeper tone. Don't point the muffler up in the air.

LilysDad,

 

If I might interject here about your confusion, I was also confused a little in the original post.  A subtle misspell about " nice strong, quite sound", I assume it is a "nice strong quiet sound" on the Sears.  Correct me if I'm wrong, just a thought.

 

Doug

$38.00 You could get something better for that price.
