    I have purchased a few accessory machines (dethatcher, aerator, etc) that had a Briggs or a Honda engine available. The Hondas are usually a bit more by a few hundred dollars. I've never heard anything bad about either engine, so what's the difference? Is one better than the other, or is the price difference just an import thing? I've always gotten the cheaper Briggs, and never had a problem. Any thoughts?

    Well the small engine Hondas usually come with OHV now, and hey run soooooooo much smoother and quieter than briggs. Last a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time too.
