Briggs & Stratton Launches Electrification Solutions, New Single-Cylinder Engines At CONEXPO
"We're proud to be the first manufacturer to introduce a complete, flexible commercial battery solution to the industry," said
The customized Vanguard Lithium Ion Battery, controller and battery charger work seamlessly together to deliver efficient, flexible power and performance. Vanguard applied its first battery to a mid-sized, unmanned ground vehicle built by ARGO® XTV, a manufacturer of extreme terrain vehicles. The fully battery-powered unit is primarily operated in autonomous and tele-operation modes, keeping service men and women out of harm's way. Vanguard will display its new battery packs at
Also on display is the entire lineup of Vanguard's new single-cylinder horizontal shaft family of commercial engines, including the new Vanguard 14.0 Gross HP* 400, 10.0 Gross HP* 300, 6.5 Gross HP* 200 and 5.0 Gross HP* 160. Built from the ground up with voice of the customer research, this groundbreaking family of engines is proven to operate with significantly reduced noise** and vibration*** levels compared to Honda*** and offers easy starting and longer maintenance intervals. The 200 and 400 are currently available, with the 160 scheduled to launch later this year and the 300 scheduled to become available in 2021.
The engine line features Vanguard innovations, including an oil management system which increases oil change intervals to 200 hours and cyclonic air filtration to dramatically reduce downtime associated with air filter maintenance. It is also equipped with TransportGuard®, a single ignition and fuel shutoff to prevent oil/fuel dilution during transport.
Show attendees will have the opportunity to experience the new power solutions as well as Vanguard innovations firsthand in the booth through several hands-on demos.
