The 1st 41" 2 blade deck I got was from a RER in an auto salvage yard. I now have 2 RER Snappers with that same deck on them plus a beat up 41" from a front engine rider. I think the 3 blade deck was called a 42" and was horrible at cutting.
I know how to use I rather not shift on the fly I feel safer stoping it when I shift.I don't know if you're aware of it, but that transmission can be shifted on the fly. Start in gear 1, and then move to the gear you want without touching the clutch. Before you stop, you can move it back to low gear if you want.
Probably easier on the transmission and rubber drive wheel if the cutch is used.I know how to use I rather not shift on the fly I feel safer stoping it when I shift.
When I shifted it in the vid of it cutting 3rd gear was more like first cuz I had the engine disc up to up to high it needs to come more down on the rubber disc. Its a few years older then me Its the oldest one Ive seen. I wish someday I could find a snapper comet with the triangle handle bars but most of them got crushed in srcap yards. poor things I pleased with the snapper I have. The way gas prices are looking. I might have to use a push mower cuz there better on gas instead of the snapper

All snappers with the disk drive were advertised as "shift on the go" meaning no clutch to change speeds once movingYou are indeed correct. Engaging the clutch in low speed reduces the speed difference between the aluminum disc and the driven disc, reducing the tendency to remove rubber from the disc. The rubber disc happily moves across the drive disc when they're turning.
The almost identical set-up on their walk mowers can only be shifted when the engine is running, and IIRC, the rider owners manual will confirm the desirability of shifting on the fly without using the clutch.
Nice Snappin' Turtles you got there!Saved these yesterday.
Thanks.Nice Snappin' Turtles you got there!
