Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine, low cost modular engine. I was a bit disturbed to see such a poor 1 star review of this engine. People need to understand that faults such as a piece of equipment being heavy or difficult to service is separate from the design of the engine.I have one on a log splitter, it starts easily, runs cleanly and has the power and torque for its application.Pros: 4 stroke, OHV, ventilated valve area for emissions. Controls are simple and intuitive.Cons: If you're not strong, it can be a bit difficult to pull quickly enough to start.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor quality and design this enginie was on a DR roto tiller. after one month the enginie seized. the instructions on filling oil are to fill till it runs over. no dip stick. you cant remove the spark plug withou taking off the muffler at least. how can they design an enginie like this? i returned the unit to DR for a refund. in the past i have been happy with B&S engines but the 900 is a disaster.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought a Husvarna FT900 rototiller that was advertised as MADE IN USA only to find out that this engine is made in CHINA....... how decietfull..... I bought this machine because it had a B/S engine..I did not want a Cub Cadet or MTD or Troybilt. Its common knowledge their rngines are Chinese. I ve worn out many B/S engines in my life time and have always been satisfied with their peformance. I spent the money to buy what I thought was quality only to be deceived. SHAME on you B/S all yor advertising and Co history talk about MADE IN USA. I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED. We ll see how it holds up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Log splitter engine junk! I bought a speeco log splitter from fleet farm in oct- 2010. I split wood for my woodburner, To date I split about 10 cords. during the first year in 2010 approx 1 month after I bought the splitter, the recoil went out so I had to get it serviced. The service dept then said the cam was also failing when they ran it they could hear the motor make noise so they replaced it. I didnt split much wood after that and a little bit in 2011. Now I started to restoct today. Aug 2012. I split about 3 cords and my splitter just had a big bang from the motor and I shut it off quickly. I am sure the cam is out again. so now it back to the shop in the prime timeof splitting. I would never buy one like this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Air filter won't keep the dirt out of the engine. This would be a quality engine if the air filter would actually keep the dirt from entering the carburator.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Engine Cuts out when hot, exhaust fell off, cover fell off I don't usually post to these boards, but this engine has been a big disappointment.Equipment: John Deere 3300psi power washer, 3.2 GPM.The engine starts fine, and then after about 10 minutes of use, it starts to splutter and then it cuts out.I can restart it, it runs fine for a few minutes, then cuts out again.I have done the following:1. replaced spark plug,2. Cleaned carburetor3. Replaced fuel4. Replaced oil with synthetic oil - and i have checked the oil levelSo the fact that it runs fine for a while suggests it is getting fuel and spark OK. It may be getting too hot and then the coil breaks down.. i don't know.Other problems: Way too much vibration. After 2 hours of use, the front plastic cover broke off - i had to re-bolt it on with a big washer.After 1-2 weeks of use, the whole exhaust pipe just broke off. I had to buy a new silencer.I noticed the exhaust pipe gets red hotSo out of frustration, i have decided to replace the engine with a Subaru/Robin 7 hp OHC engine.Sad.. I really wanted to like this thing.Mitch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable and efficient engine - superb quality I bought this engine a few months back as a replacement engine for a large cylinder mower, and it is the best thing I have ever done for that mower. It always starts first pull even in the cold and is surprisingly fuel efficient. The engine doesn't seem to be bothered by loads, obviously within it's range as you can't ask a 6 odd horsepower engine to do the job of a 13 horsepower, and so far it hasn't even stalled out on me when cutting thick grass so I'm very impressed with it. The only slight problem is it is a bit noisy, it has a lovely mellow exhaust note but it's loud, although this can be avoided by using a different muffler as I believe there are a few options I could've chosen instead, but it's not a big problem for me. Overall I'm very impressed with this engine and would highly recommend it over something like a Honda clone engine, it is so much more reliable and better built and of course there's Briggs and Stratton there to help if necessary, it's a superb engine and I highly recommend it :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Durability IIt is not that new of an engine. It is a 5 horse Briggs on a Mighty Murch wood splitter. It was purchased in the mid 70,s. It was originally used for cmmercial splitting then I got it as a gift. Myself and 3 other people have use it ever since. If I had to guess I would say that it has split 10,000 face cords of wood.Last year I had to put a carb kit in it and the spark plug has been changed 6 times.Other than changing the oil and air filter I also had to resolder the fuel tank 5 years ago.That is all the maintenace that has ben done and it still runs great and is reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Better Engineering Required !!! Bought this very heavy C'man machine as backup to my C'man S'blower with Intek 7.75 HP(which simply cuts out intermittently and fails restart unless total cool down). My Drive has a 300 ftx 15' wide , 25 degree hill plus a large Y with 50' wide foot aprons. One is 20 degree and 100 ' to the house and other is flat and 100 '. Total is 2.5 to 3 hours of snow blowing. Third year and third heavy snow Dec 2010 and suddenly oil blew out from the base area of engine with about 60% remaining. Snow was normal 10" and not wet or otherwise heavy.Impossible to have service as 2 appointments unable to climb drive and too heavy for me to lift into 4x4 pickup bed. Not a belt... an engine failure!Nightmare!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from runs good I bought a log splitter with a briggs and Stratton engine, once it starts it runs great and doesn't miss a beat;however, starting it is a problem. the pull starter is THE WORST DESIGN IVE EVER SEEN. it has small plastic pawls that are expected to start a 12.5 hp motor, the small plastic pieces are ridiculous. I have replaced them at least 6 times in the past couple of years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Repair Cost Thoughts We purchased this engine two years ago and it has performed well. However, after using the engine extensively it began to lose power. We decided to rebuild the engine but some of the parts were unavailable i.e. Outboard or Drive end Crankshaft Sleeve Bearing. The only way to purchase the Bearing was with the cover itself (Came as an assembly). With this cost it ended up being less expensive to just purchase a short block. It seems to be a waste, to have to throw the original block away just to replace the Lower End.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Purchased a GE standby generator with an 810 cc Briggs & Stratton engine.So far its running great. Not to noisy for a pretty powerful engine, 13,000 watts.Hopefully it will do the job if there are any power outages this winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the 1150 0n the cub cadet chipper/shredder bought at Tractor Supply (about 3 month ago) works fine but don't shut it off cause it won't start. have seen other comments like this on these chippers that use a briggs-stratton on them. why?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the cost by far! After 2 yrs of trying to keep my old Briggs from dying, it being 20 plus yrs old, I invested in a new Briggs OHV replcement. Best money I've spent this year. No holes to drill, no nothing, just bolt it on and add oil and fill the tank. Started on the 2 nd pull and my 20 plus Olathe plugger was new again. Tech people were great to work with and the transaction was flawless. Love the engine as much as my dog, and it will outlive my dog without a doubt. Bill K

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 years running smoothly The motor is on a Poulan Pro 17-inch tiller. The motor has run flawlessly and starts every time over the last 4 years. I do agree with the one comment about keeping the manual choke a click or two back from being off allowing it to run smoothly. Going totally out causes the engine to rev up and down. The manual choke works great for all seasons in the hot summer and cold winters. I can set this choke where the engine runs best. This engine with the Poulan cuts the hardest clay I've known. I'm impressed with that. I'm not impressed hearing that the engine is from China. I once had a gas generator with a China engine. It was bad.What this engine has done ...What I had done so far with it:- Broke ground on a 20x240 foot garden. Set the tiller to cut the weedy sod out to remove. Then took a pass much deeper to reach the nutrients in the ground better.- Retilled the garden each fall in mid-November.- In the Spring, tilled spots to plant trees. This works well vs. the back breaking shovel action or a post hole digger.- Tilled a water run off shallow ditch to prevent back yard water build up flooding the crawl space. This worked exceptionally well.- Tilled the front landscaping boundary to set in concrete for supporting decorative bricks.- Tilled in a few passes where we placed in a side walk from the deck to the pool. Saved big dollars doing this job over the quotes from others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too many problems I just bought an MTB chipper/mulcher, which is the same basic design as an older model I ran; the difference is this model uses a B&S 1150 model engine. I have the same issues as others: after the initial start, once you turn the engine off to empty the chipper bag, it's impossible to restart the engine unless you wait 10 - 15 minutes to allow it to cool down. Also, the oil input shaft is very poorly designed. It's below the engine! You need a special funnel to allow the oil to flow down the shaft and you can easily burn yourself on the engine if it's hot. I expected a lot more from B&S.
