NEW for 2014: 1650 Series™ is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from short life I only ran this engine 551.6 hours when the rod broke. I change oil every 40-50 hours because its running under load on a generator. Pretty poor service for a "heavy duty engine." Plus its VERY noisy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great while it was alive. This engine came in my troy built generator.. I had approx. 400 hours on it. every 12 hours of running it drank a half a quart of oil.. It is now seized up. Briggs, I think you guys are losing your touch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Agreed on the VERY SHORT LIFE! I ran my generator for less than 200 hours before it threw a rod through the side of the motor. Now I needa a new motor but I really don't want to buy another one of these things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy starting engine,quiet operation with OHV design Have this engine on a generator I have recently purchased. Engine starts easily,has plenty of power,OHV design will certainly have better fuel economy than traditional L-head engines,and offers quieter operation as well. I have not ever had any problems out of any Briggs powered outdoor equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good small engine The oil life is a little short when running a generator. Of course that is continuous running which is the hardest.
