riding mower muffler...

hello everyone ,nice to see such a helpful site...i just bought an old Cub Cadet , model 1450 ,14 HP, 50" cutting deck, mower last year...it runs great,i purchased the owners manual and did a maint. routine to specs...is there a replacement or other muffler that i can use to silence some of the decibels...it seems all small engines are somewhat loud, any input would be great....thanx all DD

Remove the muffler and take it to your local small engine shop. They should have a quieter muffler for you. I have even heard of people using a pipe tee and installing TWO mufflers to quieten them. This actually increases horsepower as well, by helping the engine breathe.

Lol. "Duals" on a small engine, that's novel.

I agree with Cheese. I have seen these Quiet Tone type mufflers in the small engine shops. Tecumseh markets one, I'm sure the aftermarkets do as well.
