Briggs & Stratton Corporation Provides Space-Saving and Innovative Products For The Toro® "Get Your Garage Back" Contest

MILWAUKEE (November 10, 2015) — Briggs & Stratton (NYSE:BGG) would like to congratulate the winner of Toro’s second annual “Get Your Garage Back” contest, which concluded with its prize award in August. Courtney Gaylord of Columbus, IN submitted the winning photo of her family’s garage cluttered with her husband’s woodworking equipment and the family’s toys, bikes, laundry and more.

The Gaylord family not only received a garage makeover designed by Allen Lyle, co-host of Today’s Homeowner but, they were presented with a space saving Toro® Recycler mower with SmartStow™ featuring Briggs & Stratton Mow N’ Stow® engine technology. Briggs & Stratton was also happy to provide the innovative POWERflow+, the only pressure washer with a 7-in-1 nozzle that allows for easy transition between high pressure and high flow and the PowerSmart Series™ inverter generator that offers quieter, portable power.

Briggs & Stratton hopes that the Gaylord family enjoys the extra space and outdoor power equipment for many years to come.
