New engines offer performance, durability and value for commercial equipment power

MILWAUKEE, WI - Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power today announced the launch of its performance commercial CP550 and CP650 engines. The new CP Series engines represent a robust power solution for a wide variety of small commercial equipment in the 5.5- to 6.5-horsepower range.

"The CP550 and CP650 expand our portfolio of commercial single-cylinder engines," said Doug Page, director of marketing for Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. "By teaming these performance-commercial engines with our premium Vanguard(TM) engines, equipment manufacturers have new options for powering equipment designed for a wide variety of applications, allowing them to develop products with added value to end-users."

A number of commercial engine features highlight the new CP Series engines, including: Compact Overhead Valve Design - Runs cooler and cleaner, delivering more power, longer engine life and increased fuel economy. Dual Ball Bearing Crankshaft - Offers higher load carrying capacity, extended service life, and is easily replaceable. Dura-Bore Cast Iron Cylinder Sleeve - Provides maximum durability with improved oil control. One-Start Carburetor - Delivers fuel fast for one-pull starts and smooth, efficient operation. Premium Lo-Tone Muffler - Provides exceptional sound quality and safe operation.

Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power included a number of features that ease regular maintenance and extend service intervals on CP Series engines. A high-mount oil-fill makes it quick and easy to check and add oil, and a standard Run Sense low-oil sensor electronically monitors oil levels to prevent premature wear from insufficient lubrication. An easy-to-reach fuel shut-off valve facilitates safe and easy transport, and the panel-style high-capacity air filter includes a filter pre-cleaner and debris-ejection slots to provide superior engine protection, easy servicing and extended service intervals.

CP Series engines are backed by Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power's two-year commercial warranty.

The Vanguard engine family is the company's premier line of air- and liquid-cooled gasoline and diesel engines from single to three cylinders.
