I think I've owned over 10 Snapper RERs but none with the square or rectangular part that connects the front and rear of the tractor. Is there much difference between them and the ones with the round tube frame connector?

The square tube actually covers over a round tube that rides in a socket. It has the same articulation as the newer round tube models.

It also has a clamp that you can use to adjust the length of tube engagement and thereby tighten the mower belt. I have never had much luck doing that on mine: first, the adjusting clamp is hard to get to, and second, the adjustment never holds. As soon as you ride around a while, the front end pushes back to ride against the rear chassis.

Unfortunately, in their quest to modernize the appearance of the Snapper RER, all they did was mess them up. Things are not as easily accessed. Just my opinion.

According to my research of Snapper Parts Manuals. Series 7 - 8 - 9 only have a 'square' (Actually rectangular) tube connecting the front and back.
(No round tube at all)

....My 'bad' I overlooked another page in the parts manual - there is a short tube from the back that connects to the square/rectangular section.
