MILWAUKEE, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Stratton Corporation recently featured products, innovations and technologies from a number of its brands – Briggs & Stratton®, Billy Goat®, Ferris®, InfoHub®, Simplicity®, Snapper®, Snapper Pro® and Vanguard® – at the 2018 GIE+ EXPO in Louisville, KY.
"Briggs & Stratton Corporation and its family of brands continue to innovate with the goal of making work easier for end users; whether performing routine lawn maintenance at home or tackling the toughest jobs as part of a landscaping business," says Todd Teske, chairman, president, & CEO of Briggs & Stratton. "As Briggs & Stratton celebrates its 110th anniversary year, the innovations featured at this year's show were even more meaningful as we reflect on where it all began in 1908 and how significantly the business has transformed and will continue to transform long into the future."
While visitors at each of the Company's three booths experienced an increased focus on commercial products, the Briggs & Stratton booth continued to feature engine innovations that support why Briggs & Stratton remains the world's leading manufacturer of small gasoline engines for outdoor power equipment. Briggs & Stratton will feature expanded residential engine lithium-ion battery starting options that offer consumers more options for easy, effortless starting. The new Integrated InStart® embeds the lithium-ion battery into the engine and delivers starting for nearly an entire season with up to 150 starts on a full charge.
Also in the Briggs & Stratton booth, dealers and partner OEMs explored the following in support of the Company's commercial growth strategy:
Ferris is expanding beyond cutting, and introduced its entrance into the turf care market with a full line of stand-on spreader/sprayers and stand-on blowers. These products, alongside cutting equipment such as Ferris' all-new ISX™800 zero-turn commercial mower and a new lineup of stand on mowers by Snapper Pro, will help extend landscaper profitability with the equipment needed to get tough jobs done more easily and efficiently.
Billy Goat now has the largest line of blowers on the market with the addition of the Hurricane™ X3 and Z3 zero turn radius stand-on blowers starting in January 2019, which broadens Billy Goat's world class Force™ pedestrian blower line. Additionally, Billy Goat introduced its Next Gen 25-inch PLUGR® aerator, which offers up to 42,550 sq. ft. of aeration per hour in a single pass.
