Are Briggs & Stratton engines made in the U.S.?

Are Briggs & Stratton engines made in the U.S.?

Nearly 90% of our engines are manufactured in the U.S.A. from U.S. and global parts. Supporting the power within each of us is our brand promise. It's why over 3,000 people build over 9 million engines in our U.S. factories each year from U.S. and global parts. And it's the reason why consumers look for the Briggs & Stratton brand when they shop for power equipment.

The consumer engines manufactured outside the United States are:

  • 700 Series™ DOV®
  • 550, 750, 800, 900, 1150, 2100 Series™ Utility
  • 800, 900, 1150, 2100 Snow Series™

Commercial grade engines manufactured outside of the United States include:

  • Vanguard™ V-Twin Horizontal and Vertical Shaft
  • Vanguard™ 3 Cylinder
  • Vanguard™ Single Cylinder Horizontal Shaft (except Model 19)

All Vanguard™ engines are engineered in the USA.
