The DLC Snapper

I got this idea from eric67m's Snap-da.
I received a Honda HRT-216 or something and the deck was trashed, the briggs on the Snapper was tired out. So I decided to combine the two!
Snapper V212P

Torn completely down

The "new" powerplant

All done up

Clearance issues










I spent nearly $200 and countless hours of labor for this mower. The front wheels are steel ball bearings and the backs are just steel wheels. Most of the black is POR-15 or just Dupli-Color gloss black. I used Dupli-Color's Engine Enamel in Chevrolet Orange for all the orange. The blade is the standard Honda Quadra-cut blade, I'm loving the cut but I'm not a big bagging fan so I'm fabbing up either a mulch plate or a mulch plug. The muffler clearance I fixed with a hammer, but then I had a heat problem because it was too close to the chute so I fabbed a deflector plate and so far so good!

Nice lookin' mower Bachsta! Can't beat orange and black. And with the Honda powerplant, it should be super dependable. Good job!
