Simplicity Snapper Aquisition

Recommended Posts

Chris727
The local lawn mower man told me that Snapper was having big financial problems due to a Wal-Mart deal and that they were looking for someone to buy them out. Today the lawn mower man told me that Simplicity had purchased the Snapper company. Has Anyone else heard of this or know if it is true?

yes it's true. happened about a month ago. Simplicity wanted the dealer network in the south and south west. Don't think it had anything to do with Wal-Mart. Simplicity is into stand alone dealers not big box stores. They feel the big box stores just cheapen the product. The big box stores just want cheap product to sell cheap not customer support. This & $1.00 might get you a small Coffee Maynard aka/UCD

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
