Briggs doesn't make the legendary I/C engines anymore. Wish they did.I'd have to know more about the motors and the drive mechanisms to give an opinion. An I/C Briggs is a plus, the rubber tire transmission is a minus for example.
Rubber tire transmission. You talking about the Snapper drive system? I hope not. That is the most simplistic and reliable transmission system out of any push mower. That rubber driven ring costs a whole 8 bucks to replace,,, about every 20 years.
If you were talking about the Snapper, what have you seen that is such a minus? Love to hear your comments sir.
