Briggs & Stratton Corporation has entered into a supply agreement with Walbro LLC, a global manufacturer of electronic fuel injectors and other OPE engine systems. The agreement gives Briggs & Stratton the exclusive right to use Walbro’s EEM SHIFT electronic fuel injection systems on Briggs & Stratton’s single- and twin-cylinder engines for riding lawn mowers and zero-turn-radius lawn mowers.
The agreement will allow Briggs & Stratton to introduce industry-leading, cost-efficient fuel injection technology to its line of residential-grade engines.
“Our research continually shows that easy and dependable starting, as well as fuel efficiency, are big purchase drivers for consumers considering gas walk-behind, ride and zero-turn-radius mowers,” said Jeff Coad, global vice president of product development and marketing – engines and power at Briggs & Stratton. “With this electronic fuel injection system from Walbro, we can now offer consumers more fuel-efficient mowers that run longer, and deliver great performance at an exceptional value to our customers.”
