I do NOT agree with this.I was loaned a 650.00 honda from hd,it does Not out cut my 6.75 briggs on JD.--HONDA isn't known for torque,hp is hp despite what kind of "commercial"sticker"on it.Originally posted by saw man
that does not mean that is what the hp is. That Briggs engine (6.75) does not have the power that the Honda 5.5 hp has.
The Honda Comm. is a 5.5 hp not 5 hp depending on the model.
I can bogg down that briggs in tall grass where i cant the Honda, in same height and thickness.
I would not trust Briggs or Techumseh on their hp ratings.
