Topic: Any Help Identifying John Doe Lawnmower (Now a Debate)

 

Question:

I have a small riding lawn mower. It has a 20" deck which is part of the frame. It has 2 small front wheels about 5" in diameter and one larger rear wheel about 14" in diameter. It is rear wheel drive and has a small Briggs engine in the front with a kick start. The steering is 2 handle bars. Original color looks like bright green? Mower is run by a right angel gear box and unit is only single speed. Driver sits on a bicycle seat mounted over the rear wheel. Any help at all would be appreciated.

Answers:

The mower on the trivia section fits discription of the old Snapper
rider, w/ turtle head on it. It is green , three wheeled, and has a wire mesh
screen for a seat. No parts are for avalible for this unit anymore. It really
only has a display or collectors value. If unit is for sale, or if the person
would like to trade. Contact me at Oakridgeoutdoor@aol.com or fax 205-629-2270, or call 205-629-2270.
Thanks,
Richard Joyner.

The answer to this is 100% incorrect. It is not a Snapper turtle rider! Snapper turtles, both walk behind or ride on had skidplates instead of front wheels and were turquoise. Back wheels were approx 10" and concealed under the deck. I have a turtle in my collection along with other old Snapper mowers and a bug light! Our family was a Snapper distributor for 25 years.

Correction to my reply, the Snapper Turlle Rider did have front wheels, the sulky model and walkbehind model used the skidplate.
