900 Series INTEK Horizontal Gas Engine-DISCONTINUED is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 15.
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 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 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 Plastic timing gear is junk I distribute irrigators that use a small petrol motor to move them. 4 of these motors failed the plastic timing gear bending the valve and filling my rubbish bin with motors. Also disappointed my customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor starting, undependable Motor (with electric start) came with a DR Power lawn vacuum. First fall season motor ran well. Second fall season carburetor became finicky requiring constant cleaning of fuel bowl. I finally replaced the entire carburetor and had some satisfaction with engine performance the remainder of the season. Third season, engine smoked badly and finally quit working altogether and had to replace with a Honda Moto .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very pleased This motor came on a 662-pro three point hitch mount trac vac. I'm not very pleased with this motor as I figured I wouldn't be since it's a Briggs and I've never had luck with them. Anyway first is it start on one pull when it sits over night. Now if you shut it off during the day to add fuel check oil or for a lunch break, trying to turn it back on will make you'r arm fall off. It just sucks and I dont know why. Also when mowing lawn's or vacing up leave's if you hit a bump on the lawn and bounces the machine around that motor kicks out and kicks back in like the bump causes an air pocket and it starves for fuel for 5 seconds or so. Not very pleased. Only thing I like is power. It sucks up everything i run over with my machine and sucks it right in and into the collection bins. But with power come's fuel economy and it drink's fuel fast. Keep a 5 gallon jug full of fuel for that you'll need it for a days work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed...... This engine was on a lawn vacuum I bought a year ago. Used oil and smoked a little from the start. Was hoping rings just needed to seat in. Oil consumption got progressively worse as did smoking. Serviced engine and prepared for storage during the winter. Went to use unit this past weekend, it started right up and proceeded to belching smoke with a heavy oil smell. Half way thru a tank of fuel engine stopped and would not re-start. Pulled new spark plug and it was totally oil fouled. Put in new plug. Checked air filter. New air filter was totally oil saturated. Checked oil level. It was barely showing on dipstick. Note, engine oil level was correct at start. Put in another new air filter. With new spark plug it started right up and I was able to get thru rest of the tank of fuel with lots of oil smoke. Very disappointed as I always take care of my equipment and service it properly. Don't know exactly what to do now. Guess I'll pull the engine and take it to the repair dealer where they will probably tell me that it was operator error.
