Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- A recent survey by Snapper reveals that one in two people named mowing the lawn as the most important part of achieving good curb appeal. Homeowners searching for a quiet, durable and powerful 21-inch walk behind mower to achieve that coveted curb appeal will now have four new options to achieve that perfect cut. New Snapper mowers offer groundbreaking engine technology from Briggs & Stratton including Quiet Power Technology for a 50 percent quieter operating experience than a traditional gas mower.

"Quiet Power Technology means the 'go-getter' can mow their grass at extended times of the day without disturbing neighbors," said Christin Wam, Marketing Manager for turf and consumer residential products at Briggs & Stratton. "We are excited to deliver engine technology that allows our customers to focus more on their home's curb appeal and less on mower maintenance or be concerned with sound."

New 21-inch Snapper mowers have all the preferred features: a three-in-one multi-mode deck for mulching, bagging or side discharge of lawn clippings, a single lever that achieves seven height-of-cut adjustments for the ideal cut, and a large bagger capable of capturing 2.4 cubic feet (1.9 bushels) to effortlessly tackle more with less interruption.

The dependable 21-inch Gas Variable Speed Rear Wheel Drive Self-Propelled Lawn Mower with Briggs & Stratton 850 Professional Series Engine featuring InStart and Quiet Power Technology combines professional-grade, durable components such as a cast iron cylinder sleeve and dual sealing air filter for a 60 percent longer engine life. The powerful engine is backed by a limited warranty.

Additional high-tech benefits include:

InStart technology. A simple push of a button activates the lithium-ion battery starting system which then turns the engine on-no more pulling a cord.

Rapid charging. A quick 10-minute charge of InStart's lithium-ion battery delivers up to 20 starts while a full one-hour charge powers on the engine during a full mowing season.

Effortless starting. Backed by Briggs & Stratton's Starting Promise - meaning if the mower doesn't start within two attempts, Briggs & Stratton will fix it for free.

Snapper's 21-inch Gas Variable Speed Rear Wheel Drive Self-Propelled Lawn Mower with Briggs & Stratton 850 Professional Series Engine featuring Quiet Power Technology has 190cc and 8.50 ft-lb gross torque of power. Briggs & Stratton's durable engine is equipped with ReadyStart starting system-the operator simply pulls the rope for power, there's no need to prime and choke. If the user can't start the mower within two pulls, Briggs & Stratton will fix it for free.

The 21-inch Lawn Mower with Briggs & Stratton 725 EXi Series Engine featuring Quiet Power Technology is nearly maintenance free, available in both push mower and single speed rear wheel drive self-propelled options. Equipped with Just Check & Add technology, the mowers never require an oil change-users simply check the oil level and add oil as needed. Equipped with the ReadyStart starting system, these two new mowers run on a 725 EXi Series engine and have 163cc and 7.25 ft-lb gross torque of power.

Snapper's new mowers are backed by a three-year limited lifetime warranty. Available at Walmart.com, the 725 EXi Engine Series mowers are now available, and the 850 Professional Series mowers will be available late summer 2019.
