Lowering TCO improves bottom line profitability
In the rental industry, businesses have relied on TCO calculators for maximizing the lifetime profitability of larger equipment for a while. For smaller, petrol-powered machinery however, it is not so common. While the itemized cost of items such as air filters, oil and oil recycling etc. may be small, the combined effect over an entire fleet can significantly improve its profitability.

The Vanguard calculator is designed to help fleet managers establish bottom line lifetime savings related to routine air cleaner and oil maintenance for the petrol engines powering their fleet. “As budgets are being scrutinized further following the economic impact of the corona virus pandemic, being able to calculate TCO is becoming an even more important factor,” explains Paul Bramhall, Director Marketing EMEA for Briggs & Stratton.

The Vanguard TCO calculator is based on unbiased published and market available data. It is available on the website and can be easily accessed via a desktop computer, smartphone, or tablet.

Bramhall continues: “Never before has calculating TCO for small 4-stroke petrol engines been so easy. Entering the online data fields takes just a couple of minutes. The results enable fleet managers to properly weigh the total lifetime saving potential prior to making fleet investments.”
