We are living in a world where change is happening at an ever-increasing rate. Equipment which empowered professionals just 5 or 10 years ago would not be dreamed of being used today. Look at the technological developments which have occurred over the past 20–30 years, and you will agree we live in a totally different world today. We live in a world where old products are pushed aside, and where new technologies raise productivity standards.
Over those years, power and the application of power to get a job done have also changed in many ways. Some established players have simply tweaked old product designs to keep them up to date and meet changes in the market (for example to comply with emissions regulations). They simply apply a philosophy of “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.” Others, however, have risen to the challenge and taken the lead by investing in new designs and technologies to address market-driven issues, and ultimately creating products which deliver superior performance.
However, at times it can be hard to imagine how things could be better or more efficient when we have become so accustomed to using a particular product or brand for so long. Sometimes change can be scary, as we don’t know what it will bring, and we fear it may be for the worse – however, the reality is if we don’t embrace change, we may fall behind our rivals.
The new ground-up designed Vanguard® single cylinder engines do bring change in many positive ways. Here are 5 reasons why an upgrade to a Vanguard engine can change and benefit your company:
- Reduced total cost of ownership.
- Reduced carbon footprint.
- Lower noise and vibration.
- Global parts availability & training.
