"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.

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.
