MILWAUKEE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Briggs-and-Stratton has come up with a quieter lawn-mower engine, so folks can cut grass earlier in the day without waking up their neighborhoods. The Milwaukee area small-engine maker has unveiled what it calls "Quiet Power Technology." Briggs says the new engine is 65-percent quieter than similar engines made in the past.

Marketing director Carissa Gingras says it will let people change their habits, and mow earlier or later in the day without disturbing others. Briggs said it took over two years to develop the new technology. It will make its Wisconsin debut this spring on select Craftsman mowers sold at Sears.

Briggs says the quieter engines will eventually become a staple on larger items like riding mowers and snow-blowers.
