Snapper NTX - Simplicity Franken-Clone??

Recommended Posts


So I am helping my son buy his first riding mower.  Although I have never owned anything but A/C or Simplicity - I came across this Snapper NXT 25-48 Mower.  Looks like part Regent and part Broadmoor.  Made in 2014 (apparently 1 year only) this Frankenstein Simplicity clone has a 48" 3-blade fabricated deck, the nice mesh seat first introduced on the Prestige, and larger rear tires and frame than a Regent - but I don't think the frame is as large as a Broadmoor.  Has the Briggs 25 HP Professional Engine just like a Broadmoor but the Tuff Torq K-46 transaxle of the Regent.   The 48" fabricated deck looks part Simplicty - part Snapper - fully frame attached and no rear rollers.   What do you guys make of this thing?

I seriously doubt Simplicity had anything to do with it. IIRC many of these lower end machines are made by MTD in Minneapolis and labeled as whatever company wants to sell them as (Toro, MTD, YardMan, Husqvarna, etc) underneath all the same machines

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
