Briggs & Stratton Corp. told a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter that he sees the economy, and the outdoor power equipment industry, coming out of the recession and showing growth of "maybe 2% to 4%" in 2010.

Speaking to reporter Rick Barrett, Briggs & Stratton CEO Todd J. Teske described the significant decline in the outdoor power equipment industry, starting in 2004-2005 when bad weather hurt sales and followed by the impact of the U.S. housing market problems. The result was a 30% loss in the market between 2004-2005 and today.

Teske told the Journal Sentinel that he does believe consumers are more frugal when it comes to buying outdoor power equipment – buying the equipment they need but less likely to upgrade to a model with more features.
