    Wondering if anyone has any experience with the Briggs and Stratton Commercial Turf series with the Cyclonic filter system! Great design! I am curious if we will start seeing these as options for commercial machines! I did see that there was a 28hp option for Dixon. Anyone one have a machine with one?

    Bad Boy offers that engine option on the Outlaw. Kevin (retrodog) has had good feedback from the guys that are running that engine. I'm sure he'll see this thread and comment more.

    Also, I was talking to a mechanic at a Hustler dealer (they also run a LCO) and he said that they really like that engine that is on Super Z ? Someone else will know which one and correct me if I'm wrong.

    I would love to see Briggs become a big player in the commercial engine department. I think they are on their way!

    If you have been in the industry for a period of time you would know that the last 4 engines that Briggs has tried to introduce commercially, such as the Big Block, the ELS, to name a few have failed miserably. I would love to see them come out with a winner. The cyclonic may be the one. Time will tell. In theory it sounds great but I guess they all do when they hit the market. I know some dealers that have been repowering Hustlers and Dixie Choppers with the 30 hp cyclonic. So far they are holding up well. We need to see two full seasons or a thousand hours to really see. After a thousand hours take it to the bench, tear it down and and see what you have. If the debris management system and the cooling system does what they say and the engine is properly maintained, there should be minimal wear and tear at 1000 hrs. That would be a good start.

    I've got the 27 hp briggs commercial turf and will probably have 500-600 hours on it this time next year so I will try and keep you guys posted on the motor as long as I own it. Did you buy that Dixon and how many hours did you put on it?
