Simplicty Single Stage Snow Blower?

Hi, Everyone.

I have another post asking about the Toro 721,

I ran across another snow blower that peaks my interest while looking on the net.

Its a simplicity. I have never owned a simplicity product, but looking on the net, they seem to have a good reputation.

It is the simplicity single stage snow blower 1222EE,

This blower looks to have some awesome features.

  • A Steel and Rubber Auger?
  • This simplicity has a 22" path, the Toro has a 21" path.
  • Briggs and Stratton 202cc or 250cc motor? I am a real fan of B&S, have always had good luck with them.
  • 3 yr warranty.
Icing on the cake, Simplicity top model single stage (122EE) is lower priced then both the Honda and Toro top single stage models.

Can anyone tell me there experiences with Simplicity. I don't know a lot about them.

Thanks.

They are actually made by Briggs and Stratton and badged as either Simplicity or Snapper (which B & S own). I have last year's SS922EX and LOVE the thing. For it's size, it's a beast. I can't tell you how much I would love to have the 1222EE with the larger engine and the new auger. I may still try to replace the auger myself on mine as I hope to keep it for awhile.

Impressive feature set. I have no idea if the auger really is as much of a leap forward as they make it out to be, but it seems to make sense. If the engine has a good reputation then it should be a good option for you. Personally I would get the hs720 because of Honda engine reputation. Good luck in your decision!

Their website presentation is crap, though. What's with all of the teeny tiny pictures?

The engine that comes on the Simplicity for 2014/2015 is the Briggs and Stratton Snow Series 900 on the smaller Simplicity 922EXD and the Briggs and Stratton Snow Series 1150 for the larger unit, the Simplicity 1222EE.

The engines are Briggs and Stratton, they are Chinese made, as with 95% of the other single stage snow blower engines out there.

I don't know how good theses engines are. I don't know much about either the B&S snow series 900 or 1150.

And no one really knows much about the long term reliability of the Briggs engine, because they (the Chinese versions) haven't been around long enough to really know about longevity issues.

I have a Chinese built Briggs & Stratton 1150 series snow engine on my 2010 Ariens platinum 24 2 stage and I haven't had any problems with it so far.
