I would shy away from B&S. I purchased one, pulled it out of the box, got her all ready, dunked her in the water, ran her for about 5-10 minutes and it seized up on me!!! Drained the oil/gas to send back to Cabela's and there was nothing but chunks/shavings of metal coming out!!! Plus, that thing was way too loud anyhow. Told Cabela's about it and they upgraded me to the Nissan 3.5 for free even thou it was $700 more!!! Cabelas might be expensive but they have the BEST customer support!!!
