"We are pleased to announce this highly competitive offering of Snapper walk mowers at Walmart," said Jeff Coad, vice president of marketing, Briggs & Stratton Products Group. "This lineup will fit any budget and we are thrilled that it will be introduced on such a national stage."

"These new Snapper mowers will join the Murray branded walk mower lineup successfully introduced last year at Walmart, as well as a new Murray branded handheld line for 2013, to create a strong, cohesive lineup of power equipment brands for the Walmart customer," Coad says. 

Additionally, all walk and ride mowers sold at Walmart feature powerful, highly efficient Briggs & Stratton engines that, along with the mowers themselves, are assembled in the United States. 

A key element of the program is a nationwide integrated dealer-service network capable of selling and servicing this line of Snapper products. Embracing this philosophy, Snapper dealers will also sell these walk mower models and offer service for Walmart-purchased walk mowers.

The standard features that come on the Snapper SP70, SP80 and SP90 walk mower models include:

  • Powerful, trusted Briggs & Stratton engines with ReadyStart ® easy starting feature and Fresh Start ® fuel preserver cap
  • Self-propelled for easier mowing
  • 21", 3-n-1 durable steel mower decks that bag, mulch and side discharge
  • Cushioned handle grips for comfort
  • Single- or dual-point height of cut for easier adjustment
