Vanguard® exhibits new 200 and 400 single-cylinder engines at Bauma

Freienbach, Switzerland (28 January, 2019) – Vanguard displays the new Vanguard 200 and Vanguard 400 single-cylinder engines, the first two models in an all-new single-cylinder horizontal shaft commercial engine line, at BAUMA Münich in hall A2 booth A2.349. The new engine line was developed around key areas of performance critical to improving overall productivity — including starting, noise, maintenance intervals, service and support, and total cost of ownership.

“We’re excited to exhibit these two new engines that deliver the productivity, durability and reliability necessary in the construction industry” said Paul Bramhall, Senior Marketing Manager, Commercial Power. “BAUMA attendees have the first opportunity to see the new 400 up close in Europe.”

Vanguard is also showcasing its range of electronic fuel injected (EFI) V-Twin engines, which allow customers to take advantage of many the benefits to improve equipment productivity and performance including in-field engine diagnostics, choke-less starting, better fuel economy, better load response, improved fuel tolerance and altitude compensation. All Vanguard engines on display are EU Stage 5, EPA and CARB certified and have a 3-year commercial warranty*.

Several Vanguard innovation demos are also on display, including the advanced cyclonic air filtration system that lessens downtime by extending recommended air filter replacement intervals to 600 hours, and EFI diagnostics software. “We’re constantly innovating to enhance our customers’ power options, and it’s exciting to be able to present our newest solutions through interactive demos at the show,” said Bramhall.
