    I took My son in law snapper mower and tried to have it restore for my daughter. He passed away on the 20th of Dec 2011.Well when I got it here tried to mow with it, the blade tore the deck all to pieces.. I spent over $500 dollars getting this mower back up where she could use it. You would think the blade is to big for the deck but when I look up the part it says a 33 inch. I know there was a new shaft put in but at my witt wnd with this mower. Believe me this snapper has been built up from front end to rear end .. If it had not been my son in laws I would drive it off a clift.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the cutting deck?

Pete, go back to partstree and look at the diagram for lift arms. Item #27 is your lift cables. You will notice there are several little ferrules or balls on the cables, you unhook the cable and slide these up or down as needed to adjust your deck. If you need the deck higher, you would position more of the balls under the lift arm on each side. If you can't get the desired height then your cables are stretched and need to be replaced

SOURCE: i have a snapper rear engine riding mower 33

ive seen this numerous times, what is happening is the bushings are worn out causing the steerning ahaft to drop down too far and is bypassing the steering stops on the frame, best thing to do is to shake the front end down real good and look for worn bearings and bushings, make sure the steering over-steer tabs are in place. let me know how it works out.

Grease plug locatiom snapper rider


if it's a rear engine rider with a 28 or 30 inch deck the grease fitting is underneath the deck... If it is a rear engine rider, close the fuel off and stand the mower on end but for a short period of time only. This applies to ALL rear engine riders from Snapper up until about 2 years ago when they made a SERIOUS mistake and redesigned them

I have a craftsman lawn mower that will not cut even. I have replaced the spindles but that did not do any good. Any suggestions? It is a model 917.274031 with a 42 inch cut.


On a clean lever surface, raise the deck as high as it will go. With the motor OFF, look under the deck. One of the blade tips will be lower than the others. That will be the source of the problem.



If you hit something with the deck, the deck itsself may be bent, or the blade may be bent. If everything is really worn, the assembly holding the deck up may be worn on one side, causing it to sag on that side, but this should be visible to the naked eye.

My deck cuts shoter on the rt,ie uneven


Check your tire pressures:
10 psi. for rear tires.
14 psi. for the front.

Note that according to MTD:
Making sharp right hand turns. Twin-blade mower decks are designed with the discharge on the right side and two side-by-side blades. The side-by-side twin blade decks have the left hand blade positioned slightly forward and in front of the right blade. This provides cutting overlap when traveling in a straight line. As a result, the tractor should mainly operated making primarily left hand turns when cutting. During left turns this cutting overlap is maintained. If turning right when, it is possible to negate this overlap and leave an uncut strip.
