The 305cc (cubic centimeter) engine manufactured by Briggs and Stratton is a mid-sized engine used for light- to medium-duty power applications on outdoor power equipment. It is more powerful than a smaller engine that might be found on a walk-behind lawnmower, yet not as large as one used on a riding lawn-mower.
Briggs and Stratton is a leading manufacturer of gasoline engines used to power lawn and garden, and commercial power equipment. The company was formed in the early 1900s and has filed hundreds of patents and produced more than 10 million engines.
