Briggs & Stratton – which has recently acquired companies like Ferris, Billy Goat, InfoHub and Snapper – revealed what the company and its affiliates have worked on since last October.

“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,” CEO and president Todd Teske said. “As Briggs & Stratton celebrates its 110th anniversary year, the innovations featured at this year’s show are 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.”

Ferris showed it’s expanding beyond cutting with its brand new ISX800 zero-turn commercial mowers and a new lineup of stand-on mowers by Snapper Pro. The newest mower uses its patent-pending ForeFront Suspension System, which utilizes four upper and lower control rods that ensure the front caster bearing remains vertical through the full range of travel for added rider comfort.

Billy Goat introduced its Hurricane X3 and Z3 stand-on blowers, which are ideal for commercial landscapers working on large properties. Their Joystick Deflector Controls provide quick adjustment of airflow from left, right or forward directions, eliminating the need to blow in reverse, and it blows air quietly, even at its top speeds of 165 miles per hour. The company also debuted its Next Gen 25 In PLUGGR aerator, capable of aerating roughly 42,500 square feet of land in a single pass.

Snapper Pro released two new stand-on mower models – the SS100 and SS200. The mowers are built to handle high mowing speeds in wide open areas and have the patent-pending Oil Guard systems to reduce contractor expenditures on oil by what the company estimates at 60 percent.
