* Updated* Briggs & Stratton

Noticed this blower on sale until end of the month at my local Lowes, $300 off, new sale price $699.99 Seems too good to be true, didn't find many reviews online about this model.

Not a bad deal. Briggs makes nice stuff. This looks to be basic, but you get remote chute, light, etc. You could spend more and get worse.

2016 Ariens Professional 28
2017 Toro Power Clear 721R
2018 Simplicity Select 1024

All I see for snowblowers on the link is the Cub Cadet with the $300 off.

It shows up now! thanks..
Briggs is one of the lesser-known snowblower brands, they have only been making snowblowers under the B&S name since 2005.
But they now have the Simplicity, Snapper, Murray, Brute and Briggs brand names for snowblowers. (and they were the last to make John Deere snowblowers..the Deere snowblower line was dropped a few years back)..But they always seem to be fine machines! never heard anything bad about them..I think there is just less of them out there than "the big three", Ariens, Toro and Honda, so we just hear less about them..but thats not necessarily bad.






30 customer reviews on Amazon..looks good! mostly positive.
the only 1-star review says "Briggs and Stratton is the worse company to do business with, very insensitive"..which is a useless review.
One review says "This snow blower is made in China"..it isnt..the snowblower is made in the USA, the engine is made in China.
(as is every 2-stage snowblower engine now, on all 2-stage snowblowers by all manufacturers)

so, we dont know a lot of about Briggs snowblowers on this forum, but what little we do know is positive.
If you like it and you like the price, I would say "go for it"

Oh..and speaking of price..dont be swayed by "$300 off"
$699 is probably the "regular" price for it! its not necessarily actually worth $999 and you are getting a great bargain at $699.
$999 is just the MSRP price..most things dont sell for MSRP..its just a marketing trick that every company uses.
So just consider it a $699 snowblower and compare it to other $699 snowblowers..ignore that $999 price.
