The Vanguard lineup of single-cylinder horizontal shaft commercial engines will also be on display, which includes the Vanguard 400, a 14.0 Gross HP* engine, Vanguard 200, a 6.5 Gross HP* engine, and Vanguard 160, a 5.0 Gross HP* engine.

Along with the 400 EFI/ETC engine, visitors can see the Vanguard Lithium-Ion 1.5kWh Swappable Battery Pack on display. The battery is designed to provide users with an efficient, versatile and reliable battery power option. The battery features an exchangeable design, allowing customers to easily remove and replace the battery as needed and like the currently available Vanguard Lithium-Ion Battery Packs, the swappable battery can be used in tandem with other packs to make sure larger power needs can be met. Those attending ARA will also be able to see the current Vanguard Lithium-Ion battery pack lineup, including the 3.8kWh, 5kWh and 10kWh models.
