Re: Kohler vs Briggs & Stratton.
The old briggs use to be built as heavy as the kohlers were BUT, being how briggs has cheapened there stuff (like everything else this day and age) casting there blocks in mexico and getting there parts from japan, i honestly couldnt recommend Briggs anymore. I would go kohler. Just stay away from the courage line so i hear. 50 to 60 years ago Briggs and kohler were building neck & neck and ALOT of people chose Briggs but today that story has changed quite a bit.
I can set a good example right now.
I've rebuilt a good few Briggs engines recently becouse the rings were shot and were talking engines that were barely 10 years old. I have YET to rebuild a kohler that is under 10 years of age, and you could probably give some years aswell.
