We're bringing out a version of our Quick 36 mower for next season with a 16HP Premium engine and I'd really appreciate some feedback from you guys. Here's the deal: We were planning on using a Briggs 16 ELS (Extended Life Series) engine which has great features. It has all the cool stuff you expect in a commercial-grade engine. Sleeve, heavy flywheel, electric start, big charging system, platinum plug, pressure lube w/ spin-on filter, fuel pump w/filter, washable air filter, big muffler, etc. World-Class product. We've also been talking with Kohler on and off. They visited with us at GIE, looked at our machine and have made us a price on their 16. Basically the same specs as the Briggs. Pricing for the Kohler came in less than the Briggs (by a good bit) which helps us keep our price down for you. Later, Briggs came back and matched the Kohler price. Both are excellent engines, but we want to build what you want to buy. So tell me; Briggs ELS or Kohler? Thanks, Gary Better/ PS: The results of this poll will be sent directly to the VP of Commercial Sales at both Briggs and Kohler when it's finished.
