Briggs & Stratton Commercial Series V-twin engine with electronic fuel injection (EFI) now available on Simplicity's Prestige garden tractor. Now avail- able at Simplicity dealers, EFI brings several added benefits to a garden tractor model already known for its power, performance and reliability. "The new Commercial Series V-twin engine with EFI provides more reliable starting," said Ryan Fredrickson, product manager for consumer rides, Briggs & Stratton Turf & Consumer Products. "Hot or cold, regardless of conditions, the addition of electronic fuel injection offers car-like starting. And because it uses a closed-loop fuel system, EFI helps preserve the fuel, preventing it from going bad and reducing starting issues. "This new engine option also provides load sensing to deliver the necessary power — whether you are mowing on hills or in thick, wet grass — to optimize cut quality." Notably, the Commercial Series V-twin engine with EFI can save the operator up to 15 percent in fuel costs, compared to a standard carbureted engine. The new engine option is featured on one 2-wheel-drive and one 4-wheel-drive Prestige model. Both offer a Free Floating mower deck with full-width rollers, a Quick Hitch deck-removal system, power steering, tilt wheel, cruise control and a hydraulic attachment lift. The 2WD model has a fabricated mower deck with limited lifetime warranty; Automatic Controlled Traction; a differential lock; and an SCS Suspension Comfort System, which includes front and rear sus- pension, a high-speed transmission and an ergonomic mesh seat. The 2WD Prestige with the Commercial Series V-Twin engine with EFI has a minimum advertised price (MAP) of $8,299; the 4WD EFI model has a MAP of $9,299. Prices vary by dealer. Taxes, freight, setup and delivery are not included. "This new engine option also provides load sensing to deliver the necessary power — whether you are mowing on hills or in thick, wet grass — to optimize cut quality." — RYAN FREDRICKSON PRODUCT MANAGER FOR CONSUMER RIDES BRIGGS & STRATTON TURF & CONSUMER PRODUCTS PRODUCTS
