Briggs E & EX series engines

I am starting to see Briggs E & EX engines on a somewhat frequent basis. This week I had three of them come in. They were on Poulan, Murray and Troybilt mowers. Nothing major -- 1. broken recoil cord, 2. carb clogged from sitting, 3. someone poured a whole quart of oil in the engine. Not a lot of parts to stock on these engines.

This stuff is getting so junky there won't be such a thing as an "old" lawnmower anymore. The carbs are plastic with something like sheet metal screws holding them together with no real threads. I hate the disposable product society we've created.

That reminds me of Lawnboy 30 years ago.

Lol, yeah, you have a point there! I didn't like those either! There are a step down from those, but still...
