Lowes Hire & Engineering are local agents for Briggs & Stratton

Briggs & Stratton is the world's largest manufacturer of air-cooled gasoline engines primarily for outdoor power equipment with production averaging 11 million engines per year.

The company was launched in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1908 and today is based in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Briggs & Stratton engines are commonly used on lawnmowers, as well as pressure washers, electrical generators, and a wide variety of other applications.

Their original cast-iron engines were known for their durability, but the company's success was established following the development of lightweight aluminum engines in 1953. The aluminum engine was the perfect solution for the recently invented rotary lawnmower due to its lighter weight and lower cost.

Briggs & Stratton have continued growing and diversifying. In 2000 they acquired the Generac business to start producing generators. They also started producing petrol and electric waterblasters, water transfer pumps and home standby generator systems.
