Power, efficiency and economy. The 328G4 is equipped with a vertical crankshaft Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine that continuously adjusts fuel ratios while using less fuel. EFI engines provide reliable hot and cold starts, reduce emissions and minimize fuel-induced service issues.
OHV gasoline engine with vertical crankshaft and pressure lube run cooler and provide longer service life
Delphi-based closed-loop EFI engine continually adjusts fuel ratio to use less fuel and provide reliable hot and cold starts, reduced exhaust emissions and fewer fuel-related service issues
Automotive-style plug-in diagnostics
Facilitates faster and more precise service
Hydro - Gear ZT - 4400 Transmission

Heavy - duty Deck
Extra-deep, 5.5-inch deck is fabricated from heavy-gauge formed steel with a reinforced anvil edge
Specially designed cutting chambers enhance airflow for better cut quality
Deck easily converts from side discharge to optional Down Discharge™ mulching or PowerVac™ collection
Sentry™ spindles with massive, 8-inch flanges anchored in a 6-bolt pattern, spread the force of impact for greater strength
Spindle planes are fabricated from double-layered formed steel laminate and combine with the spindles to form a triple-strength deck to keep blades level and deliver a high-quality cut.
Sentry™ spindle guards shield spindle housing and seal lower bearings from fiber wrap and dirt ingestion
Quik Ajust Tilt Levers
QuikAjust Tilt™ steering levers with "no tools" adjustment provide a 9-inch range for maximum comfort and fit while maintaining natural arm and wrist positions.

Only two Access-Eze™ lubrication points cut maintenance time up to 95%
Self-tensioning belts minimize cost and labor on routine maintenance
Robotically-welded steel construction for long-lasting durability
Centered-bearing design provides greater load-bearing capacity to handle the weight of operator, fuel and high-capacity collector with reserve strength for curb shocks and weight shifts
