Snapper Lawn mowers have a long and colorful history; one built on vision and as some would say, on sheer guts.
It began with a rotary mower called the snappin' turtle in 1951.
From the first 16 Snapping turtles made, the company was soon shipping 3,973 Snappin turtles to various cities in the United States of America.
The Snappin' Turtle can be seen in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington as an example of the pioneering lawn mower that was produced in the United States.
Snapper was bought in 2002 by Simplicity owned by Jim Weir, who would go down in history as the man who said "no" to the biggest wholesaler in the US, Wal-Mart
. This he did to further strengthen the reputation of Snapper lawn mowers as reliable and durable products.
The Snapper brand was and is known not for its price but for its performance and its durability and had already built a reputation that had spanned several generations.
The evolution of the Snapper lawn mowerSnapper Lawnmowers have evolved from the Snappin' Turtle that was a simple walk behind rotary mower suitable for suburban lawns to zero turn riding mowers and tractor mowers that cut acres of green fields faster and efficiently.
The Snapper Turtle was much easier to move around compared to the earlier power reel mowers and less expensive.
Riding mowers were the next logical step as the need to cover larger areas in a shorter amount of time arose.
The first riding lawn mower had an innovative rear engine.
Soon, hydrostatic engines were introduced together with stick steering mechanism and mulching systems.
More changes came when Simplicity took over and later on, Snapper was bought by the industry giant Briggs & Stratton.
Snapper continues to produce a wide variety and range of lawn mower machines.

The Pivot-N-Go model has a pivoting handle that allows the operator to control the speed of the mower.
