Snapper adds quiet engine tech on new mowers

The new models are powered by engines that the company says are 50 percent quieter than traditional gas mowers.


MILWAUKEE – New Snapper mowers offer new engine technology from Briggs & Stratton, including Quiet Power Technology for what the company says is 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 the following 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 tackle more with less interruption.

The 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 like 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. Additional benefits include:

  • InStart technology. A push of a button activates the lithium-ion battery starting system which then turns the engine on, so there's no more pulling a cord.
  • Rapid charging. A 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.
  • Effortless starting. Backed by Briggs & Stratton’s Starting Promise, which means if the mower doesn’t start within two attempts, Briggs & Stratton will fix it for free.

Snapper’s new mowers are backed by a three-year limited lifetime warranty. Available at Walmart, the 725 EXi Engine Series mowers are now available and the 850 Professional Series mowers will be available late summer 2019. For more information, visit Snapper's website
