    repurposed my lawnmower

    Today I retired my lawnmower. But before I kicked it to the curb I removed a couple of pieces of metal and made these:



    Look familiar? Hint: I'm getting ready to replace the belts on my 530.

    I have had very good luck with the Snapper Hi-Vac self propelled lawn mower.It can come with various engine manufac.,so that is an option and also I like the idea of the vac especially when mowing over leaves.It will leave you with some nice mulch and the bag is easy to empty.I have owned it for 16 years with the Briggs engine and still no problems.

    Do spammers actually get any benefit from something like this? I don't understand the logic.

    The weird part is that he registered in Aug 2017 and this is his first post...

    Hanry Smith had been waiting for the right moment - lol

    Maybe he's not a spammer and just some really strange person

    My guess is that Hanry Smith is a very shrewd & conniving investor, owns stock in Snapper lawn mowers, and is employing the Pump & Dump strategy here on BF. After the member masses here on BF buy up all the outstanding shares and drive the price of Snapper stock thru the roof, he'll sell his 10 shares, and move on to the Yugo forum.

    This may be a precursor to a spammer.. someone that speculatively establishes accounts and uses them just enough to bypass 'new poster' checks, then sells the established account to the actual spammer.

    A top hunter waits for the perfect moment to pounce onto its prey.

    I hear Honda Makes pretty good mowers too. How do you think it stacks up in 0-Mown times for a 20x20 flat yard hanry?

    Hanry didn't last long, I gave him the boot.
    I doubt that there are snapper mowers in Lahore Pakistan.

    Somewhere in Pakistan, I'm sure there's a nice green lawn with no landmines in it, but beware of the rigged riding mower bomb....
