The only reason m urry plant was closed was there was not enuff buissness to run it and the poplar bluff plant
Murray could not run the motors that the p.b. plant built. But the p.b plant can and now does run both....so. m urry got the ax
...on a bad week the p.b. plant will make 800k profit. Good week. Will make 1.2 mill... it's the fact some of the others are a losing venture

My wife cuts the grass. She has me get the Equip. She wanted.
Her last was a Snapper I took it to the other home for me to use there and got her a new Snapper.
It was 900 bucks for it list so was 750 out the door shipped for the commercial mower with Commercial B&S with oil filter
The same mower with Honda was 200 more.
She wanted the B&S so that was what she got.
The old Snapper was 2005 as it was bought after Katrina it is still going at the home I cut.
So hoping that the New Snapper with better B&S will do the same one pull start and plenty of power with a good mower. I hope I do not regret saving the $ not getting the Honda on it.
I know they are not made like they used to but the old 1993 8HP B&S on my 4000KW Generator chugs along all day and night and had done so before as long as 7 days straight did stop it once to swap oil. it has the cast iron sleeve motor. if i replace it i will get a Honda Powered Generator

I remember your post about getting your wife a new Snapper. I also recall lots of unsolicited advice about proper lubrication and break-in, as well as long-term maintenance.

Yes, 30Wt Non-Detergent I get cases at NAPA as I use it in the small engines and compressor. It was on sale back when I got it Down to just 6 quarts out of 2 cases.
I did get a good deal on the Yellow B&S Oil Filters at Amazon. The neighbors think I am nuts as I have oil, oil filters and spark plugs for the small engines.
They thought ya just added gas still they stopped and ya get a new one.
