Shortly after we bought our Briggs&Stratton,($700) We saw the same output on one at HF...($500) It was half the size. Don't ask me how the same HP engine, and the same (5500-8000 max) output can be downsized that much smaller.
Our B&S starts second pull every time, without hesitation. We exercise it twice a year, so it sits 6 months between starts.
