Customer Reviews

27 HP Commercial Turf Series Vertical Gas Engine-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 594.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from gas leaking into oil!!! The gas on so many of their engines gas leaks into the oil!!!!. There is a problem with the solenoid, the gas pump, or the needle, or all three. Have fun wasting time, and or money on some thing that was a problem 7 Years ago and still exists. If you aren't handy just add on 200$ to keep this machine running in the first year alone. And then if you write a review and accidentally leave any adblocking on your review will get deleted and you will have to rewrite it. DISABLE ADBLOCKERS TO LEAVE A REVIEW? HOW RIDICULOUS! I am banning any new purchase of any product with a B&E engine. And your weedeater engines arent better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable example of Briggs and Stratton value My wife's favorite , a 1971 Gilson S14 riding tractor has always had a B&S one cylinder cast iron engine. The current 16HP engine is more than 20 years old and runs great. Since then, B&S engineers have worked tirelessly to achieve continuously-improved engines with advanced features. Briggs and Stratton: where engines and people are all great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best engine ever made as far as i am concerned Is the 25 hp Briggs and Stratton my engine blew on my mower it was not a Briggs and Stratton at the time.I bought the 25 hp i have on it now out of the junk yard.I cleaned the crank with compressed air case put new carburetor new spark pugs an adjusted the valves an that was almost 6 years ago an it still runs strong an cuts great an if the day comes i have to buy another mower it will with out question have a Briggs and Stratton engine under the hood.

Bad design I do belive 3/8 studs & poly locks for rocker arms & a little more deck .250 or more between lifters & combustion chamber would increase engine life Works on my Home built 355 Chevy engine stud heads Crane gold rockers AFR 215 heads never blown head gaskets arp studs built 12 years ago still strong
