WARRANTY INFORMATION

Australian warranty laws have recently changed.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. 

This guarantee supplements the warranty document located in your product carton and outlined below. If you have any questions regarding these changes please contact Briggs & Stratton Australia on 1300 274 447 or fill in a contact form.
