Here's a revision:
Other than paint and minor badging, these mowers are virtually identical!
I do mean revision, too. An edit would mean I changed the original post. But, since the post has been quoted verbatim, a revision would better suit the purpose.
Happy now? I think people knew what I meant...
EDIT*: Besides, I think most people know sears has NEVER made their own equipment. They are just a retailer with a brand. I was just impressed that Sears had such a quality supplier (for ONE model, anyway).

We bought a Craftsman Snow Blower this winter that was identical to the "Snapper" sitting next to it (same welds, same bolt holes, same engine, etc.), but at about $400 less. I believe they are actually made by Murrey if I was told correctly. Mine says made in Canada...
I'm actually encouraged by seeing this Craftsman being made by Snapper. They haven't always slapped the 'Craftsman' badge on the highest quality stuff, ya know? Done better the last 10 years or so, but the Craftmans (Craftsmen?) like my resto project are NOT quality to be proud of....
But, I know my dad's Craftsman is DEFINATELY a MTD.....(5 yrs old)
