:( Boy are we on the wrong path or what!!! :no1:

As predicted a year ago, 2013 was in fact the last year for American-made Briggs engines on snowblowers. (and mowers, tractors, and outdoor power equipment in general) Beginning in the 2014 model year, all engines, on all 2-stage snowblowers, by all manufacturers, and now made in China.

Maybe for Ariens. Briggs still builds about 90% of its engines here. Kawasaki builds theirs in Grand Rapids.
