Briggs and Stratton Small Engine Repair

Briggs and Stratton is a famous name in construction and DIY circles, and it’s no surprise why. With over 100 years of experience in engine manufacturing, they have the years and the knowhow necessary to create some truly spectacular small engines.

Not only do the technicians at Ideal Tool know how to repair a Briggs and Stratton engine, but they’re factory-trained as well.

Services commonly carried out by Ideal Tool on Briggs and Stratton small engines include:

  • An overall engine inspection, focusing on both the exterior and interior.
  • Replacing aged and faulty spark plugs.
  • Replacing worn or corroded bolts.
  • Replacing parts, when and if available.
  • Lubrication of the moving parts.

We understand the importance of keeping your small engine in good repair, which is why we recommend carrying out the following self-maintenance tasks to help ensure a long and happy life for your engine:

  • Servicing - Keep a service book, like you would for a car, and be sure to service the engine annually and after extended periods of usage - much like a car engine. You can keep track of all maintenance in your handy service book!
  • Running - Running the engine and checking the fuel quality every few weeks will keep it well lubricated and in good working condition, meaning you won’t suddenly be left without power in the middle of a storm.
  • Inspection - Check the overall condition of the engine every few months. Watch out for signs of corrosion, loose wires, stuck buttons, loose bolts, filters passed their use and low water levels in the generator’s battery.
  • Lubrication - Every few months, or after extended usage, make sure the engine is properly lubricated and has a stable oil level.
