Sad, sad news. I bet there are millions of their little iconic gas engines out there somewhere.
They were in business for 112 years.
I’ll let 805Roadking tell you about it. You should watch this just to see part of his collection and yes, he did mate 4 B&S engine cases and crankshafts together to make a running Inline 4 cylinder engine.
I think he said it best with this line,
“There’s not a guy out there watching my channel who hasn’t touched a Briggs and Stratton Engine”.
Amen to that.
They will probably reorganize but the die has been cast.
