Simplicity- Snapper TV Ad

Recommended Posts

Tom_Byrne
Watching tv today I saw an ad for Simplicity and Snapper tractors. They basically came out against big store box tractors and pushed thier quality dealers. The ad showed the two brands side by side at the dealership. Will we soon see Simplicity Dealers selling Snappers and vice versa??

I think one of the primary reasons that Simplicity bought Snapper was to get into the markets in the South and Southeast. I expect you'll see a pretty strong push on those Snapper dealers to pick up the Simplicity line.... Plus, Snapper doesn't offer a heavy-duty line, only lawn tractors. The Conquest, Prestige and Legacy would be a nice addition to that lineup.

I went down to see Jeff Nemes today to pick up some parts. He said he heard they were making commercials but hadn't seen one. Also said he has heard nothing from the company about carrying Snapper products.

I don't know about that last post. Here in sunny Fort Wayne, Indiana, we have 2 simplicity shops. In the next town east, there is a Simplicity dealer (New Haven), and in the town just North(Auburn), they have one too. I have found that people "in the know" have simplicities. If you drive around the Fort Wayne "burbs" there are Crapsman, Deere, MTD(All brands) but very few simplicities. Now, if you drive out to the country, it seems like there are 2 colors. Orange(Simplicity) and green(JD). I have even seen our Amish friends on Simplicities (but only for professional work). I have faith that those that know will keep knowing and those that will know because of association with better known(among the general public) brands. My 2 cents for what it's worth.

If you watched the Women Huskies of UConn kick booty in the NCAA Basketball tournament(again I might add, with only 1 loss in over two years) you may have seen some of the Simplicity/Snapper ads. I know I was pleasantly suprised at seeing the advertising....

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
