SNAPPER® ADDS QUIET ENGINE POWER TECHNOLOGY ON NEW WALK BEHIND MOWERS

New mowers available at Walmart.com



MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (May 28, 2019) – A recent survey by Snapper reveals that one in two people named mowing the lawn as the most important part of achieving good curb appeal. Homeowners searching for a quiet, durable and powerful 21-inch walk behind mower to achieve that coveted curb appeal will now have four new options to achieve that perfect cut. New Snapper mowers offer groundbreaking engine technology from Briggs & Stratton including Quiet Power Technology® for a 50 percent quieter operating experience than a traditional gas mower.

“Quiet Power Technology means the ‘go-getter’ can mow their grass at extended times of the day without disturbing neighbors,” said Christin Wam, Marketing Manager for turf and consumer residential products at Briggs & Stratton. “We are excited to deliver engine technology that allows our customers to focus more on their home’s curb appeal and less on mower maintenance or be concerned with sound.”

New 21-inch Snapper mowers have all the preferred features: a three-in-one multi-mode deck for mulching, bagging or side discharge of lawn clippings, a single lever that achieves seven height-of-cut adjustments for the ideal cut, and a large bagger capable of capturing 2.4 cubic feet (1.9 bushels) to effortlessly tackle more with less interruption.

The dependable 21-inch Gas Variable Speed Rear Wheel Drive Self-Propelled Lawn Mower with Briggs & Stratton 850 Professional Series™ Engine featuring InStart® and Quiet Power Technology combines professional-grade, durable components such as a cast iron cylinder sleeve and dual sealing air filter for a 60 percent longer engine life. The powerful engine is backed by a limited warranty.1 Additional high-tech benefits include:

  • InStart technology. A simple push of a button activates the lithium-ion battery starting system which then turns the engine on - no more pulling a cord.

  • Rapid charging. A quick 10-minute charge of InStart’s lithium-ion battery delivers up to 20 starts while a full one-hour charge powers on the engine during a full mowing season.2

  • Effortless starting. Backed by Briggs & Stratton’s Starting Promise™ - meaning if the mower doesn’t start within two attempts, Briggs & Stratton will fix it for free.3

Snapper’s 21-inch Gas Variable Speed Rear Wheel Drive Self-Propelled Lawn Mower with Briggs & Stratton 850 Professional Series Engine featuring Quiet Power Technology has 190cc and 8.50 ft-lb gross torque of power.4 Briggs & Stratton’s durable engine is equipped with ReadyStart™ starting system - the operator simply pulls the rope for power, there’s no need to prime and choke. If the user can’t start the mower within two pulls, Briggs & Stratton will fix it for free.4
