Snapper - American Made Lawn Mower

When it comes to walk behind lawn mowers, the Snapper brand lawn mower has long been synonymous with the word quality.

Soon after World War II, a businessman from Georgia named William R. Smith recognized that with the growth of post war suburban America, there would come an ever increasing need for lawn care equipment.

In 1951, William purchased a patent for a rotary blade mower and soon after the very first Snapper lawn mower was born.

Within a month, Snapper had produced almost 4,000 mowers to meet the increasing demand of suburban America.

The original Snapper featured a covered engine and cutting blades that made the mower much safer and easier to operate.

The Snapper brand took off quickly due to it’s innovative safety features and extreme commitment to quality. William was a firm believer that people would be willing to spend a little more for a quality product.

Snapper filed 50 patents to improve lawn mower design.

In 1954, operations were moved into a large scale manufacturing plant in Mcdonough Georgia, where they started making riding lawn mowers also.

Snapper expanded quickly and were acquired by, or merged with several companies in the 50’s, 60’s, 90’s and early 2000’s.

In 2004, another great American company, Briggs & Stratton, purchased the Snapper brand and still manufactures Snapper brand products right here in America.

Today, Snapper produces 150 models of lawn mowers and other various lawn maintenance products. Snapper brand products are consistently ranked best buys.

    It’s nice to see products that are still manufactured in the USA. Speaking of lawnmowers made in the USA, I remember when I was kid.

    My grand father had an old fashioned two wheel mechanical lawnmower. With a little WD40 it worked great every time. I still have it in the garage.

    I really like the Snapper walk behind mower. They’ve always made a good lawn mower. Thanks for the great info on lawnmowers.

      You are most welcome Jack!

      There are still tons of products being made in the USA and we have made it our goal to find & promote as many as we possibly can.

      I used to have to mow my grandmas lawn with one those mechanical mowers myself. My grandpa would sharpen the blades every other week and use some old 3 in 1 oil to keep it lubricated.

      I absolutely love Snapper walk behind mowers! Not only are they made right here in America, they are by far a superior product that can last a lifetime. Take care of it and it will take care of you. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by ForeverUSAMade Jack and please do let me know if I can help with anything.

      See ya’ soon. ~Jeremy

    Jeremy & Lori,

    Thank you so very much for organizing this information! As an ardent American patriot, I am in love with the red, white, and blue! I’m more than sick and tired of American jobs being outsourced to cheaper labor markets overseas when wee need the jobs right here at home. I’m disgusted with the quality of Chinese made crap! I googled “American made lawn mowers” and your site popped up. Thank you for supporting American jobs and innovation. As an Army vet of 24 years, I salute you!

      Hey Tom!
      I hear you loud and clear my friend.
      This site is something we always wanted to do. It seems like no one is promoting American made products anymore and it just does not make any dam sense.
      We are the greatest Nation the planet has ever seen. We have the greatest workforce and working conditions on Earth. Why do people refuse to help themselves by buying stuff that is made right here?

      I know this site isn’t much yet, but we will try to do everything we possibly can to show the World that American made products are the best! From American made lawn mowers to American made work boots…If it’s Made In The USA, we will try our best to promote it!

      Now if there were only 8 days a week…:)

      We salute you my friend and we genuinely thank you for your service! Thank you.

      We are going to be redesigning the site if we can find that 8th day, so swing back by sometime and let us know how you like it?
      Thanks for stopping by ~Jeremy & Lori

    Thanks for the list. It really helped to identify brands that were made in the USA so I can avoid them.

    Made in the USA is not something that interests the other 7 billion people on the planet. In fact many of us actively try and avoid buying US producsts with the current unfair and illegal trade policies being enacted by your government.

    Thanks for the help

      Awesome that we could help you Jeff.
      Crazy America with their stupid labor laws that prevent forced child/slave labor!
      The ignorance of a minimum wage that is greater than most of the world’s “7 billion” people” make in a lifetime!
      Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! How dare thee!! Shouldn’t life be darkness, slavery and misery?!
      Thank you Jeff, for spotlighting the ignorance and outright bias some hold for a country that is the only hope left.
      Continue supporting evil Jeff and perhaps one day, like we always do, we will stop by and rescue you from tyranny and evil.
      You are welcome Jeff, for protecting you from the evil that exists in the world, weather you want it or not!
      When America falls, due to the ignorance of the sheep, the world will fall back to the dark ages.
      I hope Jeff, that some day you, and people like you, will realize exactly what America means to this world.
      Thanks for stopping by Jeff

    My question about the Cub Cadet riding lawn mower is:
    Are all parts of this mower made in America or is the mower assembled in America with parts shipped from outside the USA?

      According to Cub Cadet’s website – “Cub Cadet has been Built in America since 1961”
      Here is a link to the Cub Cadet page – https://www.cubcadet.com/equipment/cubcadet/BuiltInAmerica
      Cub Cadet is a great American company employing thousands of Americans with good paying jobs.
      If you are considering a riding lawn mower, Cub Cadet is not only made in America, it is one of the highest rated lawn mowers available on the market today.
      All the best to you & thanks for stopping by 🙂
