If you are like many homeowners, spring is the time to shop for a new lawn mower. Briggs & Stratton measures the power of its walk-behind lawn mower engines in terms of torque. Torque measures rotational power - the power that makes the blade rotate - which is the most appropriate measure of power for these engines.
How do you know how much power you need to get the job done?
Any Briggs & Stratton dealer can help you choose the right size mower engine and torque for your lawn size and terrain. Basically, the higher the torque rating, the more power behind the blade and the cleaner cut you will get for your lawn.
