Briggs & Stratton reported second-quarter profits of $3 million, or 6 cents a share, compared with $3.2 million a year ago -- in line with analysts' estimates. However, sales dropped almost 18% to $393 million. The company says it expects a 6% drop in sales this year because a quiet hurricane season did not spark the use of portable generators and there were fewer overseas shipments of engines.
