Boels Rental pulls more Vanguard® powered equipment into their fleet

Freienbach Switzerland, 15 May 2019 – Following positive feedback from its customers on 16HP Vanguard V-Twin powered Barreto 1620B tillers, Netherlands-based Boels Rental is now adding to its fleet the Barreto 30SGB stump grinder, powered by the 31-HP V-Twin engine. Boels Rental have ordered new Barreto 30SGB stump grinders to introduce across their European rental network.

The new additions follow on from a more strategic collaboration between Boels Rental and Briggs & Stratton announced in January this year. Boels’ director of fleet operations, Guy Cremer, said, “We have used Vanguard V-Twin engines in our fleet for some time now. They have proven to be extremely reliable and durable, delivering greater productivity standards and ultimately improving the end-user satisfaction which is a key point of differentiation for us.”

Paul Bramhall, senior manager marketing – commercial engines at Briggs & Stratton, said, “Our close collaboration with Boels Rental and its OEMs like Barreto is key to delivering the best product to the market. By aligning our Vanguard power solutions with Barreto’s equipment - based on Boels Rental’s needs and that of their customers - we can offer real added value.”
