Briggs & Stratton offers a number of Vanguard engine models. These engines can withstand intense work-site conditions, notes Briggs & Stratton. The Vanguard engine models come with 5.5 to 35 horsepower with single-cylinder, v-twin, and air-cooled v-twin big block varieties available.
The Vanguard 5.5 horsepower single-cylinder with TransportGuard engine comes with OHV technology, allowing for longer engine life and better fuel usage. The TransportGuard system ensures no oil or fuel dilution takes place during transport, states Briggs & Stratton. A completely metal fuel tank results in fewer emissions and increased durability. This engine weighs 18.7 kg and has a 0.6L oil capacity.
Briggs & Stratton's Vanguard 16 horsepower v-twin engine features v-twin OHV technology, which promotes better balance, fewer vibrations, better emission standards, a longer valve life and more horsepower per weight. A Dura-Bore cast-iron cylinder sleeve provides lengthy engine life and better oil control, per Briggs & Stratton. This engine features a cooler, cleaner technology, which lowers engine temperatures by 25 to 30 degrees.
The 29 horsepower air-cooled v-twin Big Block engine is ideal for intense applications, according to Briggs & Stratton. This engine has ADMS with easy-clean access, allowing for a cooler engine, better durability and increased performance.
