Are you a Green Bay Packers fan who wants to take your mowing game to the next level? If so, there’s no better way to do so than purchasing this 1997 Packers/Brett Favre-themed Simplicity Backer tractor.
Only 320 of them were made (this is No. 280), and this one for sale happens to be brand new. According to Tractor Data, the company pushed these sports mowers after finding sales success with their 1996 championship Packers model.
This specific Packer Backer “has never cut a blade of grass” and has been stored indoors all these years. The seller would like to sell it to another Packers fan given his father was a “Packer nut” — $2,800 and it is yours for Mowing SZN.
From the ad:
This tractor has never cut a blade of grass and stored indoors. My dad is a Green Bay Packer nut. Would like the tractor to be purchased by Packer Fan only or maybe a jealous Bears fan. Mom said it has to go. I is # 288 of 320 manufactured. New oil and battery If the engine has 3 hrs of operation I would be surprised, It is probably the last mower of its type for its age and condition. I have all the original paperwork and extra key. Like all items price is negotiable.
The original Simplicity Packer Backer tractor was sold in the fall of 1997, following the Green Bay Packers 1996 Super Bowl season. The tractor is a 1997 model-year Simplicity Regent 14H with the colors and logo of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers football team. The success of this limited-edition model led Simplicity to build a line of NFL and NCAA team-branded tractors in 1997.
