Briggs & Stratton said it cut jobs at its¬†plant in Auburn, AL, U.S. About 90 employees were laid off.¬† 

The production line impacted by the job cuts makes engines used in generators sold by retailers like Home Depot and Lowe's. 

In a normal season, the plant makes up to 500,000 engines used in generators. A quiet tropical season has meant a decrease in the need for the generators, the company said.  

Built in 1995, the facility also makes V-twin lawn tractor engines and a smaller 3-horsepower engine that powers equipment like edgers and snow blowers.
