    There is a big difference. The Briggs Intek is a comsumer grade engine made for light use like a homeowner mowing his/her yard once a week. The Kohler is a commercial engines that was born to run. The Kohlers are made to run all day every day as they would in a commercial application.

    You sure he wasn't referring to a Vanguard? Those are tough engines, in fact they are the standard in 1/4 Scale Tractor pulling circuit. The Briggs in my JD GT-235 is a Vanguard.
