    Guys this is a long one but I'll sum it up for those that don't want to read it.

    Simplicity bought Snapper some time ago. CEO of Simplicity tells Wal-Mart people no and pulls all snapper mowers from Wal-mart to keep a good product and to help independent dealers. Pretty cool if you ask me. He lost 20% of his sales right there. And Oh ya he was going to tell them he was pulling the mowers and Wal-mart wanted to go all out head to head with Homedepot.

    i would NEVER buy a mower at wal-mart. i support my local dealer. but i would pay $750 for a mower from my dealer rather than the same one at wal-mart for $500. i hate wal-mart. besides, shapper would have to come out with a cheaper series for wal-mart, like john deere for home depot
