New large caster tires and ergonomic seats increase comfort and productivity

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (October 16, 2019) – Briggs & Stratton Corporation is delivering smoother rides on the Snapper® 360Z Zero Turn Mower and Snapper SPX™ Lawn Tractor. Upgrades to the popular mowers include a redesigned mid-back cut and sewn seat for enhanced rider comfort during operation and rugged 11- by 6-inch front caster tires. The new tires not only look robust but achieve more surface area for less ground pressure and a smoother ride. 

“With a 360Z, homeowners can not only mow their lawn comfortably, they can haul dirt, tools and more.” said Christin Wam, marketing manager for turf and consumer products at Briggs & Stratton. “The available integrated cargo bed1 provides on-the-go versatility and convenience. Plus, its rail system is compatible with numerous third-party UTV/ATV accessories for added utility.”

Commercially Inspired Snapper 360Z

Enhancements on this year’s refreshed Snapper 360z includes upgraded, rugged 11-by 6-inch front caster tires which increases the surface area for less ground pressure and a smoother ride. Paired with a new mid-back cut and sew seat on select models rider comfort is front and center. The 360Z line-up includes many commercially-inspired features, including a fully welded steel frame and thick-walled front axle. 

Consumers can choose between a 36-, 42-, 48- or 52-inch fabricated steel mower deck or a 46-inch stamped mower deck that offers cutting durability to mow season after season. Fabricated mower decks even come with a limited lifetime warranty2. A commercial-style foot operated mower deck lift makes adjusting between height-of-cut positions simple for the operator. Homeowners have several high-performance engines to choose from, including Briggs & Stratton Professional Series Engines with the ReadyStart® feature, and Kawasaki® FR Engines. Select models include an integrated rear cargo bed offering a 50-pound capacity for more on-the-go versatility and convenience around the yard compared to a traditional zero turn mower. 

Dependable SPX Lawn Tractor 

The SPX Lawn Tractor mowers are ergonomically designed to include a new mid-back cut and sew seat for rider comfort and powerful LED headlights on a sleek modern hood. The SPX Lawn Tractor series is available with mower deck sizes that range from 42, 46 and 48-inch deck sizes. Consumers can select a Briggs & Stratton Intek™ Series V-Twin or a Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ V-Twin engine to deliver rugged power. An integrated hour meter6 allows homeowners to track the number of used hours to help ensure important maintenance doesn’t go overlooked, and a steel front bumper6 provides extra durability to the front end of the tractor.
