BRIGGS AND STRATTON ENGINES
BRIGGS AND STRATTON HAVE 3 SETS OF NUMBERS, A MODEL NUMBER, TYPE NUMBER AND A CODE OR SERIAL NUMBER AND THESE ARE USUALLY LOCATED ON THE METAL COWLING THAT COVERS THE TOP OF THE ENGINE. THAT BEING SAID RECENTLY BRIGGS HAVE ALSO BEEN STAMPING THEM ON THE ENGINE BLOCK. THE FIRST AND SECOND PICTURE ARE OF A BRIGGS ENGINE FITTED TO A COUNTAX RIDE ON. THE THIRD AND FOURTH PICTURE ARE OF A QUALCAST MACHINE WITH A BRIGGS ENGINE. YOU WILL SEE THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE NUMBERS BEING STAMPED ON THE ENGINE BLOCK. THE SERIAL NUMBER OR CODE DENOTES EXACTLY WHEN THE ENGINE WAS BUILT, FOR INSTANCE IF THE FIRST TWO NUMBERS ON THE CODE ARE 99 THEN THE ENGINE IS 1999 ANS 02 MEANS 2002. THE REST OF THE SERIAL NUMBER DENOTES EXACTLY WHEN IT WAS BUILT SO IF BRIGGS GET A PROBLEM WITH AN ENGINE SAY A CRANKSHAFT THEY CAN TELL WHERE THE CRANKSHAFT CAME FROM AND WHO PUT IT IN THE ENGINE. ON THE QUALCAST ENGINE BELOW THEY HAVE JUST PUT THE DATE STAMP. OUR ENGINE WAS BUILT 19/12/2013. OBVIOUSLY THE AMERICANS PUT THE MONTH AND YEAR THE WRONG WAY ROUND. ITS AN AMERICAN THING ALTHOUGH WE TAUGHT THEM EVERYTHING THEY KNOW THEY STILL CANT GET IT RIGHT. PICTURES 5 AND 6 ARE EXAMPLES OF THE TYPE OF ENGINE YOU MAY FIND ON A MOUNTFIELD OR HAYTER MACHINE. ONE THING BRIGGS CAN NOT BE BEAT ON IS ITS AVALIABILITY ON SPARES FOR OLDER ENGINES, I HAVE ORDERED SPARES FOR A 1977 ENGINE BEFORE AND GOT THEM NO PROBLEM.
BRIGGS ARE AN AMAZING COMPANY THEY DONT OVER COMPLICATE THINGS OR PUT ON ITEMS TO MAKE IT LOOK FLASH SIMPLE IS DEFINITELY BETTER.

COUNTAX RIDE ON
COUNTAX MACHINE SERIAL NUMBER IS ON A BAR CODE LABEL ON THE FRONT OF THE CHASSIS NEAR THE FRONT WHEEL, YOU WILL ALSO NEED THE MODEL NUMBER OFF THE MACHINE I E C330 A20/50 ETC.

THE SWEEPER MODEL NUMBER IS AGAIN ON A BAR CODE LABEL ON THE ARMS THAT FIX THE SWEEPER TO THE MACHINE.


TO IDENTIFY WHICH DECK IT HAS FIREST YOU WILL NEED TO MEASURE IT FROM LEFT TO RIGHT IF YOU ARE STANDING BEHIND THE MACHINE IF IT MEASURES ABOUT 44 INCHES THEN IT WILL BE A 42 INCH DECK AS THE DECK SIZES ARE MEASURED FROM THE CUTTING AREA UNDER THE DECK.
YOU WILL THEN NEED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF DECK IT IS. DO YOU CUT THE GRASS THEN SWEEP IT UP IF SO THEN THIS IS MOST PROBABLY A STANDARD IBS DECK. IF YOU CUT THE GRASS AND IT DOESNT EXIT THE BACK OF THE DECK THEN IT IS A MULCHING DECK.
JUST TO THROW A SPANNER IN THE WORKS AND COMPLICATE THINGS MORE COUNTAX DO A COMBI DECK WITH WILL MULCH IF YOU PUT A PLATE IN THE GRASS EXIT CHUTE AND JUST DROP IT ON THE FLOOR IF YOU REMOVE THE PLATE. SO IT BASICALLY DOES BOTH. YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW THIS IF YOU REQUIRE DECK PARTS AS YOU CAN FIT SEVERAL DIFFERENT DECK ON THE SAME COUNTAX I E C300 MAY BE AN IBS, MULCHER OR COMBI DECK AND THE MACHINE SERIAL NUMBER WILL NOT DENOTE THIS.

TO IDENTIFY THE GEARBOX FITTED THE MODEL NUMBERS ARE ON THE BACK OR SIDE OF THE GEARBOX, COUNTAX USE A VARITY OF GEARBOXS AND SUPPLYING THE MACHINE DETAILS WONT NECESSARILY IDENTIFY WHICH GEARBOX IS FITTED
