Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power introduces Vanguard single-cylinder engines with the TransportGuard system, available with gross horsepower ratings from 5.5 hp to 10.0 hp. Exclusive to Vanguard, the new engines feature a single lever design called the TransportGuard system. During transport, engines are subjected to vibration causing fuel to flow through the engine and into the oil. The TransportGuard system simultaneously shuts off fuel and the ignition eliminating oil/fuel dilution during transportation. Fuel in the oil drastically reduces viscosity resulting in more friction and increased wear. Shutting off the fuel and the ignition at the same time helps eradicate fouled plugs, hydraulic lock, cylinder wash down and crankcase oil dilution ultimately saving money by decreasing downtime and repair costs. The new Vanguard single-cylinder engines also address top worksite challenges including heavy dust, lack of regular maintenance and filtration issues. Engineers designed each component and integrated technology to efficiently work together raising durability and reliability standards.
