    I don't like briggs untill they get into the higher horsepower. To tell you the truth I wouldn't even look at that motor. I would suggest you get the Ferris.

    Get a scag with the 24 horse honda or a kawi motor, i would ever have a briggs again never ever , imho the only thing i would use a briggs for is a weight to hold something down then i might be afraid it might fail in that application
