The Sappers look same as PK, just Red, not that orangey color. Only the Plastic body's and think only with the 3 piece hoods if that makes sense. Not the big single hood that flipped up on earlier ones. Would be in 90's. Think most start as MGT2000 or 2500 or similar, would have to look up for sure. Here's pix of mine. Many sold with loaders. I see more Snappers than PK's of this Era really. The time for models didn't last long, think only couple years. Not sure if PK couldn't keep building or what. Most Snapper dealers didn't even have or acknowledge the PK connection when you ask them. These tractors got in the $15000 range with a loader on them and you could buy a Deere or other brand CUT for same or less money, might be why they didn't last long.

An 1855 Snapper would not be a PK made one. That would be Massey Ferguson made.

 

The PK made ones would have model numbers like MGT2000H and MGT2200H etc.

 

I've picked up 3 in the last year and Grumpy owns 2 of them.

Had one with a Front end loader and just sold that one to a local guy to me.

I'm now out of the "newer" model business and will focus on older Economy/PK's.

Hi thanks to you guys, I was pretty sure the 1855 was a MF but not completely up on the Snappers and Snapper PK's but trying to learn.

Actually the 1855 is Snapper made, The Massey 1855 was made by Snapper for Massey. 1976/77-1983 or 84 I think, but don't quote me on that one.

 

I have a Snapper Plastic King, mine was made in 96 or 97, only 2 yrs for the UGT2060 model, Hydro only. The MGT2000 Grumpy stated were earlier 90's models.

I think after 97, Snapper went elsewhere.
