Power Ratings: The power ratings for an individual
engine model are initially developed by starting with
SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) code J1940
(Small Engine Power & Torque Rating Procedure)
(Revision 2002-05). Given both the wide array of
products on which our engines are placed, and the
variety of environmental issues applicable to operating
the equipment, it may be that the engine you have
purchased will not develop the rated horsepower when
used in a piece of power equipment (actual "on-site"
power). This difference is due to a variety of factors
including, but not limited to, the following: differences in
altitude, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity,
fuel, engine lubrication, maximum governed engine
speed, individual engine to engine variability, design of
the particular piece of power equipment, the manner in
which the engine is operated, engine run-in to reduce
friction and clean out of combustion chambers,
adjustments to the valves and carburetor, and other
factors. The power ratings may also be adjusted based
on comparisons to other similar engines utilized in
similar applications, and will therefore not necessarily
match the values derived using the foregoing codes.

Information
Emission
information
Engines that are certified to meet the California Air Resources
Board (CARB) Tier 2 Emission Standards must display
information regarding the Emissions Durability Period and the
Air Index. Briggs & Stratton makes this information available to
the consumer on our emission labels. The engine emission
label wilt indicate certification information.
The Emissions Durability Period describes the number of
hours of actual running time for which the engine is certified to
be emissions compliant, assuming proper maintenance in
accordance with the Operating & Maintenance Instructions. The
following categories are used:
Moderate: Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 50
hours of actual engine running time.
Intermediate:
Engine is certified to be emission compliant for
125 hours of actual engine running time.
Extended: Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 300
hours of actual engine running time. For example, a typical
walk-behind lawn mower is used 20 to 25 hours per year.
Therefore, the Emissions Durability Period of an engine with
an intermediate rating would equate to 10 to 12 years.
Certain Briggs & Stratton engines will be certified to meet the
United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)
Phase 2 emission standards. For Phase 2 certified engines, the
Emissions Compliance Period referred to on the Emissions
Compliance label indicates the number of operating hours for
which the engine has been shown to meet Federal emission
requirements.
For handheld engines:
Category C = 50 hours
Category B = 125 hours
Category A = 300 hours

Briggs & Stratton welcomes warranty repair and
apologizes to you for being inconvenienced. Any
Authorized Service Dealer may perform warranty
repairs. Most warranty repairs are handled routinely,
but sometimes requests for warranty service may not
be appropriate. For example, warranty would not apply
if engine damage occurred because of misuse, lack of
routine maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing
or improper installation. Similarly, warranty is void if the
serial number of the engine has been removed or the
engine has been altered or modified.
If a customer differs with the decision of the Service
Dealer, an investigation will be made to determine
whether the warranty applies. Ask the Service Dealer
to submit all supporting facts to his Distributor or the
Factory for review. If the Distributor or the Factory
decides that the claim is justified, the customer will be
fully reimbursed for those items that are defective. To
avoid misunderstanding which might occur between
the customer and the Dealer, listed below are some of
the causes of engine failure that the warranty does not
cover.
Normal wear:
Engines, like all mechanical devices, need periodic
parts service and replacement to perform well.
Warranty will not cover repair when normal use has
exhausted the life of a part or an engine.
Improper maintenance:
The life of an engine depends upon the conditions
under which it operates, and the care it receives.
Some applications, such as tillers, pumps and rotary
mowers, are very often used in dusty or dirty
conditions, which can cause what appears to be
premature wear. Such wear, when caused by dirt, dust,
spark plug cleaning grit, or other abrasive material that
has entered the engine because of improper
maintenance, is not covered by warranty.
This warranty covers engine related defective
material and/or workmanship _
and not
replacement or refund of the equipment to which
the engine may be mounted. Nor does the warranty
extend to repairs required because of:
1. PROBLEMS CAUSED BY PARTS THAT ARE
NOT ORIGINAL BRIGGS & STRATTON PARTS.
2. Equipment controls or installations that prevent
starting, cause unsatisfactory engine performance,
or shorten engine life. (Contact equipment
manufacturer.)
3. Leaking carburetors, clogged fuel pipes, sticking
valves, or other damage, caused by using
contaminated or stale fuel. (Use clean, fresh,
lead-free gasoline and Briggs & Stratton Fuel
Stabilizer, Part No. 5041 .)

Parts which are scored or broken because an
engine was operated with insufficient or
contaminated lubricating oil, or an incorrect grade
of lubricating oil (check oil level daily or after every
8 hours of operation. Refill when necessary and
change at recommended intervals.) OIL GARD(_
may not shut down running engine. Engine
damage may occur if oil level is not properly
maintained. Read Operating & Maintenance
Instructions.
Repair or adjustment of associated parts or
assemblies such as clutches, transmissions,
remote controls, etc., which are not manufactured
by Briggs & Stratton.
Damage or wear to parts caused by dirt, which
entered the engine because of improper air
cleaner maintenance, re-assembly, or use of a
non-original air cleaner element or cartridge. (At
recommended intervals, clean and re-oil the
Oil-Foam element or the foam pre-cteaner, and
replace the cartridge.) Read Operating &
Maintenance Instructions.
Parts damaged by over-speeding, or overheating
caused by grass, debris, or dirt, which plugs or
clogs the cooling fins, or flywheel area, or damage
caused by operating the engine in a confined area
without sufficient ventilation. (Clean fins on the
cylinder, cylinder head and flywheel at
recommended intervals.) Read Operating &
Maintenance Instructions.
Engine or equipment parts broken by excessive
vibration caused by a loose engine mounting,
loose cutter blades, unbalanced blades or loose or
unbalanced impellers, improper attachment of
equipment to engine crankshaft, over-speeding or
other abuse in operation.
9. A bent or broken crankshaft, caused by striking a
solid object with the cutter blade of a rotary lawn
mower, or excessive v-belt tightness.
10. Routine tune-up or adjustment of the engine.
1I. Engine or engine component failure, i.e.,
combustion chamber, valves, valve seats, valve
guides, or burned starter motor windings, caused
by the use of alternate fuels such as, liquified
petroleum, natural gas, altered gasolines, etc.
