Stihl and Briggs & Stratton Zero-Turn Mowers Target Both Pros and Homeowners

Stihl will team up with Briggs & Stratton to add zero-turn mowers to their line of outdoor power solutions. This collaboration could affect Stihl’s range in the outdoor power equipment world by expanding Stihl’s product offerings throughout the U.S.

We’ve covered a lot from Stihl, including their 135 Series lawn care tools and the Stihl MSA 300 chainsaw. They make some of the best string trimmers and manufacture products across a wide variety of applications, including landscaping, construction, cleaning, and gardening. Stihl zero-turn mowers would round out the company’s landscaping division and complete what we consider one of the broadest ranges of OPE in the US market.

A Collaboration For The Ages

Briggs & Stratton will manufacture these new zero-turn mowers, keeping them in line with Stihl’s production and quality standards. Stihl is excited to be working with a well-established presence in the lawncare production category. Terry Horan, Stihl’s CEO and president, stated,

“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.

“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.”

Steve Andrews, Briggs & Stratton’s CEO and president, commented that his company is excited about this allyship. He states:

“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.

“With a 114-year legacy of power application and manufacturing expertise, Briggs & Stratton is a trusted leader in this industry… We look forward to applying our superior product and manufacturing capabilities to produce STIHL zero-turn mowers.”

Price and Availability

We don’t yet have pricing details at the time of writing. The new Stihl zero-turn mowers should be available at authorized Stihl dealers throughout the country, however. Homeowners, professionals, and everyone in-between can look for these new zero-turn mowers beginning January 2023.
