Briggs & Stratton engines

EXI SERIES ReadyStart®
The EXi series engines offer the perfect combination of power, performance and ease of use. These engines feature the ReadyStart® system, which makes it extremely easy to start the engine. Manually starting with a primer or air intake adjustment is no longer necessary. It is enough to pull the cord a couple of times and the motor starts right away.
A conventional lawn mower is started up thousands of times by pulling the starter cord. Grin machines equipped with the Briggs & Stratton engine with IS Instart system feature instead electric start-up with a push of a button. A lithium ion battery, fitted directly on the engine, assures immediate and effortless start. Charging the battery is simple and easy, thanks to an external battery charger.
Thanks to the Mow N’ Stow system, the lawnmower can be stored in vertical position after each use, thus saving the 70% of ground space and allowing an easy access to the mowing system. These engines have specific technical features designed to avoid leaks of petrol and oil, when the lawnmower is put vertically.

Performance and Productivity
Cut easily through tough grass thanks to the heavy-duty, high inertia flywheel. Uneven ground, variable angles and slopes are tackled easily and reliably due to our high-efficiency pressurised lubrication system. A low noise fan and low tone muffler make long days more comfortable, boosting operator productivity.
Designed for Durability
Strength and resilience is built into every FJ engine. From the tough combined crankcase design to hard-wearing chrome plated piston rings and cast iron cylinder liners. Quality bearings ensure high engine loads can be sustained for a longer period of time . The tough metal shroud gives maximum protection and durability.
Professionals can rely on a dependable start for every job thanks to the heavy duty recoil starter. For long-term reliable performance, air filters are dual element and high particle capture, and engine cooling systems are protected by the rotating chopper screen that prevents grass debris build-up.
Kawasaki made air filters ultra-easy to access, no tools required, allowing operators to make simple maintenance checks on the job.
