Default briggs fan from wisconsin

hello everyone. how is everyone doing today? My name is dan i'm 22 and currently in college hoping to major in physcology. I'm currently in a small engine class as that is a interest of mine. I love learning about companies and engines etc. I have bought and sold several pieces of equipment. Unfortionetly, I am a bit to nice and leniant and have been ripped off. I have done some yard work both for commercial and private homeowners, some volunteer some paid. It really has been a challenge since i do not have a truck to haul equipment in. Money is tight especially when in college having trouble finding a job! I tend to be a briggs and stratton fan, as well as a honda and kawasaki fan. I do like the tecumseh snow king engines but thats it as far as tecumseh goes. I have several nice pieces of equipment including a brand new toro super recycler model 20093 with a briggs 675 engine with ready start, i also have a 2009 troy built with a 675 briggs with the ready start. Another piece of equipment i rely on is my john deere 14sbe? mower with the kawasaki engine and blade brake clutch. I also use my honda hrx 6.5 ohc mower often with bbc, hydrostatic drive, cruise control and xenoy deck which was not cheap! I have been frustrated with how manufactuers mark their eqiupment with inactrate measurements. why not just tell the truth??? anyways glad to be here
