Steering Made Easier With Simplicity® Dual-stage Snow Blowers

Snow blowers include dual-trigger steering for tight turns, heated hand grips and bright dual LED headlights

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (October 18, 2017) – Briggs & Stratton Corporation will display a new lineup of dual-stage snow blowers from Simplicity at GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky, Oct. 18th to the 20th. The three units are loaded with features aimed to help make clearing snow on a cold winter’s morning more enjoyable. A dual-trigger steering system helps make tight turns at the end of a driveway easy; a simple pull of a trigger releases the left or right wheel for an effortless turn. Other features include heated hand grips, rugged steel components and more. Plus, they are backed by a three-year limited product warranty.1

“Our Simplicity dual-stage snow blowers are great for homeowners who want a reliable, powerful snow removal option with convenient features, such as dual-trigger steering and heated hand grips, from a brand they can trust,” says Troy Tesmer, Product Manager of Snow Products. “The three new models are made with durable steel components including the new larger chute and integrated dash panel to help this snow blower take on snow and ice with ease.”

Consumers have their choice of either a Briggs & Stratton Snow Series or Professional Series engine that was specifically designed to offer optimum power in cold conditions.
