A New Standard in Easy Starting and Transport

The new Vanguard 200 engine featuring TransportGuard™ delivers a new, easy experience: It allows for the ignition, throttle and fuel supply to be shut-off in one step versus the three steps it takes leading industry standard engines— making equipment transport trouble free.

  • Easy starting by design

    The number one issue for petrol powered equipment on a job site is starting. Not any more.

    Our engine is designed to start easily in just three steps:

    Step 1: Single lever turns on fuel, ignition and throttle.
    Step 2: Set the choke.
    Step 3: Pull.

  • Less oil wastage by design

    The advanced Vanguard engine design features an industry-leading oil management system that allows the engine to run efficiently for up to 200 hours between oil changes — double the industry standard.

  • Quieter by design

    Hard work need not be loud work. Vanguard engineers examined every point of noise creation within the engine. The result? An engine with a full load full speed sound level that’s 40% quieter1.

  • Lower vibration by design

    Reduced vibration increases productivity. By optimizing the cylinder block, reciprocating mass, and precision balancing the crankshaft, our engine reduces vibration by 15%2 over the leading competitor — while enhancing durability.

  • Easier transport by design

    Our exclusive TransportGuard™ feature solves the number one rental problem — oil-contaminated equipment returns. We designed our engines to eliminate the problem entirely. By simply turning the 3-in-1 control to the STOP position, the engine ignition and fuel supply are shut-off simultaneously. Problem solved.  

  • Extreme operation by design

    Job sites are demanding — so we created an engine to deliver on those demands. The new Vanguard 200 engine is designed to work hard day in and day out. From easy starting down at -29° Celsius to operating on extreme inclinations up to 45° in any direction.
