    Just a heads up to those of you that may have bought one of the 06' models.I bought mine back in March and have put about 120 hrs on it. about 3 weeks ago it started burnin oil (about 1/2 a qt an hour). I called the dealer and he said bring it in as this was a common problem with the 24hp. Said they were replacing it with another B&S with an enhanced breather system.
    That was my only concern before purchasing this particular model. We had a dry summer here and I couldent keep a clean filter on it.. He said the new style filter would take care of it..I hope so!!!
    When I got there there was 3 B&S boxes with old engines in them that they had recently replaced.
    Hope this helps someone..If it hasent happened yet it prolly will...

    Thanks for posting this info, if I owned one of these mower engines, I'd be glad to know this!

    I just turned twelve hours Saturday. Yesterday she wouldn't start. I could see that there was no fuel running through the filter, so we will see....... I can't stand leaving an account half finished. I will have to repeat 1/2 of the work I did yesterday again today. There goes the profit on that account this week.

    The Vanguards are good; but the other Briggs motors are garbage. I don't get it after all these years making engines, just copy the japanese.
