Riding Mower Engines

Riding Mower Engines is rated 4.1036 out of 5 by 753.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am pleased with the performance of this engine I purchased this engine to replace a Briggs engine that had a faulty design with its air filter; I purchased the engine at the end of the mowing season and didn’t have a chance to really try it out until this spring. This engine runs strong and the filtration doesn’t seem to be an issue, I only wished it had a low oil cut off. Bottom line I am pleased with the performance of this engine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this engine has design problems Have approx. 400 hrs of well serviced use on this engine. At this point had to replace an entire head due to valve guide pushing out and causing push rods to bend (2 sets). Techs at Briggs and Stratton tried to help but who would have thought that the guides pushed out of the head. Thought it was a freak thing but 20 hrs. later the other head did the same thing. Last one of these engines I will buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but I have a 24 hp in a Husqvarna it is a good engine but the spout to drain the oil leeks you can see it is cracked so I need to add oil every 3 hrs or so

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great engine I'm on my seventh season with this engine. I use it year around, mowing and plowing snow with my John Deere tractor. I've never had a bit of trouble with this engine. It starts right up in the coldest weather as well as the hottest weather. Currently I have over 300 trouble free hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great engine, love the filtration system. I bought a new Snapper zero turn with this engine on it. Have had it 3 months and so far really like it. The air filtration system really works well. When you see these ads it so often seems like another gimmick but this is for real. After mowing in some very harsh conditions it is amazing how clean the filter is. The only slight issue I have is that it is kind of cold blooded after starting but when warmed up it is perfect. I think they have the carbs leaned down to get the emissions where they want. It also is very fuel efficient. Really like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good engine I purchased a 2010 Craftsman YT 3000 yard tractor with this engine. Runs excellent as all Briggs & Stratton engines do. However, I think this engine is a bit under powered for the 46" Craftsman mowing deck, as it seems to bog slightly when mowing high grass. This engine would perform better on tractors with 42", or smaller decks. Which is surprising considering that the Craftsman YT 3000 actually only mows at 44", even though it is sold as a "46" inch deck. Also, good luck finding the part number for the replacement oil filter. It isn't listed in any of the manuals, parts grids, or anywhere on the Internet. When I changed the oil for the first time, I had to first remove the filter to get the part number, because the part number was unreadable until the filter was removed. After talking to someone at Tractor Supply, there are only two filters available for these Briggs & Stratton engines, and this one uses 696854.
