im structure a mini chopper and have no idea where to buy an electric starter for it. i dont want one that you have to plug in i want one you can run off a battery. it doesnt have to recharge by itself i legitimate want it to start the engine. money is not really an issue but obviously i dont want to splash out an arm and a leg for one.
first that's the worst apparatus to use! look to see if there are punch outs for a starter..if they are there then you can add one..you are right there will be no charging system on that engine if it come with a starter..you might have to tap the starter mount holes..and institute sure the fly wheel has a ring gear for the starter to engage? that was very cheap engine and rebuilds only gave ya lil more constantly. the starters new run a bout $150.
Briggs & Stratton Announces Cost-Saving Measures
In a recent news release posted to the Briggs & Stratton website , the corporation announced their plan to take strategic action toward cost reductions.
Briggs & Stratton has announced a few changes they will be making to the distribution and manufacturing of their products, taking effect in the fiscal year 2013 (July 1, 2012). In addition to these changes, there will be a reduction in their workforce globally.Leaving mass merchants
Through a wide variety of products—snowthrowers, generators, pressure washers, garden tractors, lawn mowers and power cleaning systems—Briggs & Stratton has a presence at all mass retailers.
In their recent news release, the corporation announced they will no longer pursue placement of their lawn and garden products in the mass-merchant channel. While Briggs engines will still be found in other OEM products, their own lines of lawn care equipment will become dealer-exclusive products.
Briggs & Stratton was unable to confirm which lawn and garden brands will leave the mass merchant channel. They include: Simplicity, Snapper, Snapper PRO, Ferris, Murray and Brute.
"It is too early to tell at this point because we may work with retailers and/or OEMs to license certain Briggs-owned brands," explains Laura Timm, director of corporate communications for Briggs & Stratton Corporation.
"Briggs & Stratton has always focused on our nearly 14,000 independent dealers," says Timm. "They have been a very important part of our business for a very long time and will continue to be in the future."
Briggs & Stratton will continue to invest in the success of their existing dealers, and grow their network where it is necessary.
"Dealers add tremendous value to our customers and we will continue to help them grow their business through education, innovation and customer support," says Timm. "We are always looking to improve the quality of our dealers and add dealers in underrepresented areas."
