Be extremely careful in front of the jaws of that old snapper turtle,only slightly less dangerous than standing in front of jaws of wife/woman,both will chew you up,but you usually have some control of turtle,although a hunk of 2x4 or steel pipe makes a good throttle control at times in other case.

I've got several of them. They are often missing either the turtle head, or the teeth on the mower inlet.

The way I heard it is,you tied a rope on the turtles neck,take the other end tie to a stake nailed in the ground,fired her up and laid back to watch it pull itself around winding up rope around stake;kinda a "let me do it" model.Has a huge drum wheel in the rear,soild cast deck,heavy little fellow.Dude11
