Briggs & Stratton Upgrades and Expands
“This line of engines has always been a great value and a bridge for those wanting to step up to commercial engines. With the redesign, the line offers many premium features and components while maintaining a price point that makes it ideal for light-duty commercial applications,” said Jim Cross, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. “It’s a versatile workhorse and our confidence in the reliability of this engine is evident in the new 3-year commercial limited warranty.”
Briggs & Stratton’s patented Integrated Cyclonic System offers unmatched air handling to help the Commercial Series stand up to demanding, high-debris applications. A rotating debris-chopping screen cuts debris into smaller pieces while a robust fan forces the debris particles down and away from the engine. Further, a series of baffles and an ejector chute prevent dirt and large debris from reaching the air cleaner housing, which ejects dust and fine debris through a duckbill-shaped valve. The engine’s large cyclonic air cleaner filter lasts for 250 hours of operation and requires no tools to replace. An optional high-flow static cover further improves airflow in high-debris applications.
Enhanced features for structural integrity include a commercial-grade liquid sump gasket – the same gasket engineered for the Vanguard™ 810 V-Twin – as well as a 3rd dowel pin to ensure a rigid, lasting seal at the sump joint. For added versatility, a wide range of muffler options is also available for repowers. In addition to enhanced features, Briggs & Stratton expanded the range to include 16-, 18- and 20 hp (gross)* models with optional rewind start. This accommodates the growing commercial, wide-area walk-behind mower market.
The Commercial Series lineup now includes 9 models with displacements of 656 cm3, 724 cm3, or 810 cm3. The 656 cm3 and 724 cm3 engines are available for propane conversion through Propane Power Systems.
