Stihl Inc. and Briggs & Stratton announce a new manufacturing relationship that will expand the offerings of Stihl  products in the United States.

Through this relationship, Stihl will launch a line of zero-turn mowers for professionals and homeowners. The new products will be available in select authorized local Dtihl ealers beginning in January 2023.

Briggs & Stratton will manufacture the new line of zero-turn mowers to meet Stihl specifications and quality standards.

“The introduction of zero-turn mowers allows our network of authorized local Stihl Dealers to offer an even greater breadth of product solutions for our customers who turn to Stihl for world -class products and support to meet their garden and landscape needs,” says Terry Horan, Stihl Inc. president and CEO. “Working with Briggs & Stratton, a well-established leader in this product category, allows us to bring a superior product to market for both demanding professionals and discerning homeowners.”

“We take great pride that Stihl has seen in Briggs & Stratton what we have known for years – we design, engineer and manufacture the best zero-turn mowers on the market,” says Steve Andrews, Briggs & Stratton president and CEO. “With a 114-year legacy of power application and manufacturing expertise, Briggs & Stratton is a trusted leader in this industry, and we look forward to applying our superior product and manufacturing capabilities to produce Stihl zero-turn mowers.”
