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.
