MILWAUKEE  – During World of Concrete 2022, Jan. 18-20, Briggs & Stratton showcased the current lineup of Vanguard innovative power solutions. Highlights at the Vanguard booth included the 1.5kWh swappable battery technology, as well the new single-cylinder Vanguard 400 engine equipped with electronic fuel injection (EFI) and electronic throttle control (ETC). Also available for viewing will be the Vanguard Commercial Lithium-Ion Battery Packs and the full lineup of single-cylinder horizontal shaft engines.

“Our customers’ needs are ever-changing, so Vanguard has designed a product lineup to meet the growing demand for diverse power solutions,” said Amy West, Briggs & Stratton Marketing Manager, Commercial Power. “We are looking forward to showcasing our latest product innovations and connecting with other industry leaders at this year’s World of Concrete.”

The new single-cylinder Vanguard 400 EFI/ETC 14.0 Gross HP engine is launching in March 2022, but World of Concrete attendees will get an early preview of the engine and its many features. This is the latest Vanguard model to incorporate EFI and ETC technology, which improves performance and load acceptance as well as offers better fuel efficiency and easy all-weather choke-less starting. 

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. This family of engines, designed using customer research, provides proven power with superior starting and significantly less maintenance. These models also feature the patented, Vanguard-exclusive, TransportGuard technology and fully integrated cyclonic air cleaner with advanced AutoShed technology.

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 the World of Concrete show will also be able to see the current Vanguard Lithium-Ion battery pack lineup, including the 3.8kWh, 5kWh and 10kWh* models. 

“Electrification is quickly revolutionizing the power application industry and we’re proud to play a significant role in that process,” said West. “Innovation in power application is more important than ever, and our current Lithium-Ion battery models, as well as our new swappable battery pack, continue to show the industry that Vanguard is leading the industry forward.”
