Additionally, diversifying the company’s product offering, Shivvers created the Country Clipper division of zero-turn lawnmowers. The Country Clipper brand features a broad lineup of zero-turn mowers for residential, estate, and commercial applications, marketed through independent dealers throughout the United States and several foreign countries.
