Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value engine I too received the chinese made, cheapest B&S engine available with the aluminum cylinder and plain bearings in my Poulan Pro roto-tiller. I wish B&S would not hide these attributes in their engine serial number so that customers know what they are getting. Had I known that I would have gone with another brand that offers the no-name Chinese engines that have a cast iron cylinder liner and ball bearing supported crank standard.That said, not all is lost. This engine has more than enough grunt and powers my roto-tiller reliably. Starts on first pull every time, and runs smooth and relatively quiet. Controls and engine exterior have a look and feel of quality to it. I'm sure despite the cheap engine internals (where it matters most) I will still get a lot of years use out of this engine, and the tiller it's hooked to. After all, it only gets used for about 10 hours in the springtime and gets put away for the rest of the year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from china motor is junk!!!! I bought my first briggs product at 10 and began making money with it. Reliability was always number 1 throughout the years as I have owned numerous briggs powered pieces of equipment. THEN CAME THE 900DRT HUSQVARNA!!!!! WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK!!! However, worst of all is the china briggs motor. From the beginning it required the muscles of a weight lifter just to crank it. VERY POOR STARTING! After replacing the carburetor it cranks somewhat better. Still it runs roughly and sometimes shuts down under normal 2" deep weeding use. Simply call me "VERY FRUSTRATED IN ALABAMA"

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 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable I have had the engine 2 years on a lawn vacuum. It sometimes just will not start come back the next day and starts right up. It is the most unreliable engine I have ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minibike powerhouse used this engine as a power plant for my minibike and after one summer of running it is still running great. im in the process of upgrading the engine as it has many aftermarket parts available (same as the briggs animal lo206). will recommend again I love this bike and the engine stock is crazy powerfull. 7 hp stock with prem gas will be pushing close to 10 when im done. new connecting rod flywheel cam valve springs carb etc... great little engine.

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.
