"Hurricane brings high-quality products with differentiated capabilities around air flow and handling which make the lawn and turf care professional more productive and able to tackle even the largest jobs more efficiently and easily," says Harold L. Redman, Briggs & Stratton's senior vice president and group president - Turf & Consumer Products. "The acquisition brings Briggs & Stratton and its family of brands one step closer to its goal of filling a landscaper's trailer with everything needed to start and finish a job in as little time and with as little effort as possible to maximize their profitability."

"Briggs & Stratton continues to generate strong growth serving commercial customers in lawn and turf care, job site, and on an OEM basis with an expanding line of innovative commercial engines," states Todd J. Teske, Briggs & Stratton's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "This investment follows our recent acquisition of the assets of Ground Logic, Inc. which produces stand-on commercial spreaders and spreader/sprayers for fertilizer and pesticide-herbicide lawn applications. Both have expanded our product line and will enable us to take advantage of synergies in manufacturing and supply chain. We will be able to leverage our broad base of dealers and distributors to accelerate growth of these products."
