Re: scored a MINT RER from craigslist

I found a mint 08 RER with a briggs 12.5 electric start with a 28"hi vac with ninja blade delivered for $500! It was used very little and is truly like new.
It runs perfect and our Son had it out last night cutting and it runs great!



Wow, that's pretty nice!

Hi my name is Frank, I have a Snapper RER Model # 30085S. It was the mower I used to mow my parents yard when I was younger and was passed down to me by my dad when he got a new Snapper RER. I recently re-did all the decals and gave it a fresh coat of paint. Here are some before and after pics.
Really great job, Frank! I love to see RER's restored. For too long, they were looked at as "cheap junk", and treated as such when their useful life came to a close........:frown:

I know!!!! No way I could pass it up!!:thumbsup:
Usually, my 'deals' also come with the following:

"....and here's the box with the tranny pieces.....I think it's all there......."

:laughing:

I was just thinking....That mower is almost four years old! It must have next to NOTHING for hours!

*Shaking head* I can't get over that.....you should buy a lottery ticket, too!

Not a ding.....not a heat mark on the engine.......bet the tires even have the little nipples on them! It's factory-fresh! Even if you'd really REALLY cleaned it up, it wouldn't look so......so......NEW. You may not have restored it, but you had the good sense to jump on a good deal....so congrats on your good sense! :biggrin:

You truly scored the deal of the decade, man. Next you'll tell us about the Humvee you got for $700.......LOL :laughing:
