MILWAUKEE (May 27, 2015) — While the engine experts at Briggs & Stratton (NYSE: BGG) provide a wealth of information to outdoor power equipment operators and prospective buyers, they know that the average consumer checks more than 10 information sources before making a purchase. To help ensure information about their products is easy-to-find for those who are looking, Briggs & Stratton is increasingly turning to outside trusted and knowledgeable sources to provide authentic information and product reviews.
Recently, Briggs & Stratton hosted Tim Carter from AskTheBuilder.com at their Wisconsin headquarters so he could test the latest innovations and share his genuine reactions with his readers.
During his visit, Tim had plenty of industry-first innovations to try including:
- InStart® a lithium-ion electric starting, gas powered engine that delivers up to 75 starts with one hour of charging
- EXi the first gas powered walk mower engine that will never need an oil change*
- Mow ‘N’ Stow a foldable mower that uses 70 percent less space than a traditional push mower
- ReadyStart® for Ride featuring a no-choke engine, similar to a car
- POWERflow+ pressure washer with a 7-in-1 nozzle for high pressure and high flow modes
- P3000 PowerSmart Series™ Inverter Generator that provides quiet and portable power
“We admire Tim’s DIY project ideas and honest product reviews,” said Rick Zeckmeister, Vice President of Marketing and Planning. “He has reviewed Briggs & Stratton products in the past, and it was exciting to see his enthusiasm for our latest innovations and to host such a knowledgeable participant in an interactive setting with our products and team members.”
After demonstrating products and filming reviews, Tim wanted to learn more about Briggs & Stratton’s past and took a tour of the Company’s on-site museum. He was impressed by the breadth of products including the 1940’s Doodle Bug and their role as a defense manufacturer during WWII, as well as Briggs & Stratton’s long-standing history of invention and innovation.
