Simplicity/Snapper/Briggs 1222EE

Has anyone had a hands on with this Single Stage? It looks pretty interesting however, not a dealer by me carries it. For those of you who dont know, this is a new unit from briggs, it has a very unique auger. Plus it has a 250cc motor and a headlight, electronic chute control (which I would be nervous about). Its around 699...if you can find one. I am very curious about this for I am looking at it vs the Toro 721. I would assume the motor is more powerful considering the CCs. As for cleaning?? Also, I am wondering if the 1222 throws snow further than the 721? Anyone out there have one? Just wondering if the king of single stage has a valid challenger for once.

Can't find them anywhere around here or online. I suspect there's problems in the supply chain.
I grabbed a 922exd at Lowes ($599). Haven't used it enough to form much of an opinion yet though.

I just bought it's little cousin the Snapper 922EXD. It has a 205cc motor. I went in to buy a Toro 721 with a 212cc motor, but I saw this one and to get all this had on a Toro it was 200 more. Plus this one has metal teeth to compliment the paddles. Has a really nice gearshift style lever to turn the chute left or right up close where you can reach it. I run Ferris big mowers and a snapper 21" mower so I like the B & S Company. With all that said, I live in Indianapolis, IN and we haven't had any snow to move this year. So it is sitting in the garage next to my Murray 8/24 13 year old blower that I picked up last year.

I posted this in a different thread. We had 2" of snow last week and I worked this thing like a dog. On and off the truck, I do bank and condo sidewalks. It started first pull every time. It also was good on the gas. I am very happy with the purchase of this snapper.

When it comes to equipment like this, I always go with a outdoor power shop that I like close to my house. I don't want to run all over town looking for parts, or ordering them online, when I can be out making money and getting the job done. Plus I like the fact that the guys know me when I walk into the shop to get PM parts and what not. -Jason

I purchased the Simplicity 1222EE online a month or so ago. However, I've only had the opportunity to use the snow blower one time this season so far. And it was just a little 2 inch snow. It threw that snow just fine. You can tell the blower has a lot of power. The electric chute works great. Its a nice little feature. Mine has started on the first try every time I've started it. Its replacing a 20 year old Snapper blower and compared to that blower the 1222EE is a beast. I'm far from a snow blower expert, but I have used a 2 stage blower and I prefer this blower over the 2 stage blower I've used. Its a lot easier to maneuver and just as powerful, if not more powerful. I've never used a Toro snowblower before, so I can't really give you any sort of comparison on how the Simplicity 1222EE would compare to the Toro 721. But I will say compared to the Toro 721 specs, the 1222EE gives you a lot more bang for your buck. Just my 2 cents.

I heard somewhere that Briggs was moving assembly of this model to another
plant here in the US. That made supply scarce. I was on a dealer's website
this morning and they now list the 1222ee as "new shipments arriving soon".
I would love one of these to replace my aging single stage craftsman.

hey guys any verdict on these machines now that they are what 2-3 years old? i have been looking for them on the secondary market but i figure with a 3 year warranty they wont pop up until after it runs out and they are a no start.

the serrated auger and large engine has me intrigued.

Click on the link above and read the 1 & 2 Star reviews. Complaint is old gas and ethanol separating, recommendation from B&S is fuel stabilizer. A problem is the belt keeps coming off or burning, even the dealer could not solve the problem. Recommendation, call customer service for assistance.
