New Snapper Pro S200xt Model Touts Vanguard™ 810cc Engine With EFI

MILWAUKEE, WI (October 22, 2014) – Known for providing commercial cutters with maximum productivity, the Snapper Pro S200xt large frame mid-mount zero turn just got better. A new 28-gross hp1 model featuring the Briggs & Stratton Vanguard™ 810cc engine with EFI is being added to the line-up.

Based on the success of the Vanguard™ BIG BLOCK™, this new engine features forged rods, crank, cast valve covers and a dynamically balanced flywheel. Like the BIG BLOCK™, it has a beefy 5” Donaldson air cleaner.

The Vanguard™ 810CC engine is made in the USA using the Briggs & Stratton Vanguard™ Certified Production Process. Hand-built by Master Service Technicians, all engine assembly information is data logged giving the engine a particular “DNA.” Finally, all engines are dynamometer certified prior to release in the market.

In addition to its innovative engine, the S200xt drive system consists of commercial Hydro-Gear® ZT-5400® Powertrain® transaxles with 9” cooling fans. It has a ground speed of up to 10 mph.

The unit offers a 61” iCD™ Cutting System engineered to produce the best possible cut in a variety of grass conditions. The baffle design and deep deck allow for better airflow and the extra wide opening allows for a more even, greater dispersal of clippings.

Other features include cast-iron greaseable spindles, and easy-to-use foot-operated deck lift, ¼” cutting height increments from 1.5” to 6” and 24” drive tires.

The S200xt is covered by the Snapper Pro 2 + 2 Limited Warranty: Four years (48 months) or 500 hours (whichever occurs first) or unlimited hours the first two years (24 months)2.

The S200xt featuring the Vanguard™ 810cc engine has a minimum advertised price (M.A.P.) of $8,199.00.3 Visit for more information.
