Hello all. Just recently found his forum and joined because it looks like an interesting site with lots of people who appreciate older lawn and garden equipment. I belong to several other forums but not too active there, giving this one a try. Mainly interested in older snapper walk behinds, I currently have 13 ranging in years from 1979-1989. A few other items as well including an old Honda HR194 PX, 1968 snapper tru cut C19 reel mower and half dozen old echo trimmers etc. Also have quite a few old white NOS snapper bags - those have been fun to find and collect. Another fun part of finding these old mowers is getting some of them from their original owners or their family members. Over the new year weekend I reorganized my garage to better display and store all of my things plus added some work bench space so thought I'd post pics of that. I am more of a collector and not too helpful with mechanical repairs, most of my knowledge is of snapper's history and such but anything I can help with I will. Hope to see any old red and white equipment you all might have. Cheers!

James: Welcome aboard, and thanks . I have a "few" videos on youtube (paul oldihc) as well a "few" posts right here on SMOKSTAK, but you already found some. Nice garage set up, but you will soon find it's to small .

I used a Snapper comet for many years, was a good mower, it had a three blade deck. Country life just didn't suit it after many years.
