By default, the Briggs & Stratton 850 comes with the Briggs & Stratton "Easy Start" engine initiator; this option is a large diameter self-spooling pull starter, designed to minimise the amount of force needed to get the engine started by the user. It's also an auto-choking pull starter (one that doesn't require that the user manually adjust a choke to get the engine to start), and the manufacturer warranties that if it doesn't start after two pulls of the starting cable, they'll repair it for free. Beyond this, there is an option for a fully electric starter, which will turn the engine on with a touch of a button.
The Briggs & Stratton 850 meets the EPA and California Air Resources Board (CARB) Tier III standards for engine emissions for non-transportation uses; it can reach the CARB Tier IV standards with optional configurations. Other standard features designed to make the Briggs & Stratton 850 more pleasant to be around include a commercial grade air-management system with dual seal designs, meant to reduce the amount of engine byproducts the user faces, as well as a built-in muffler and noise-cancellation system to keep the operating volume below California standards.
