Hey Guys,Engine is too loud can I put a muffler on

Recommended Posts


Larry just like "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder"," objectionable sounds to one is music to the other".

All sound testing, even for the dinky string trimmers is done in a sound proof room to ensure accurate noise data can be recorded. Also the are two noise levels that each machine emits, exhaust noise and then machine noise. Exhaust noise is fairly easy to control, machine noise is not. So just to grab a muffler off the shelf might not cure your problem. The long and short of it is you might more money ahead by purchasing a quality pair of ear muffs before you start a money pit by going thru different mufflers. Keep in mind, each person has a different has a different tolerance on sound levels.

I have a B&S powered generator that I use at the garage of a rental property I own. I got an "Extra-Quiet" Briggs muffler to do my best for my tenants and I haven't noticed much of a difference. I'm thinking of changing over to a Pipe, adding a "T", and putting on 2 screw-on mufflers.^ Dave

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
