Vanguard 200 Front

Vanguard® Single Cylinder Engines

INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY BY DESIGN.

A ground-up designed OHV engine application engineered to deliver durable performance with lower TCO, easier starting, lower noise and vibration, and a reduced carbon footprint.

The commercial grade Vanguard engines feature a cast-iron sleeve, dual ball bearings and a forged crankshaft which are all optimized and precision balanced. All of this leads to a more durable and reliable power solution for increased productivity and improved user comfort.

Increased uptime. Reduced maintenance.

THIS IS PRODUCTIVITY DEFINED.

TransportGuard™. Exclusive to Vanguard®

Rental equipment returned to rental depots often has the fuel valve left open. Failure to shut off the fuel supply before equipment transportation can lead to fuel and oil dilution, resulting in unnecessary and costly oil changes. In addition, these unnecessary oil changes increase your organization's CO2 footprint. TransportGuard™ exclusive to Vanguard eliminates this problem.

The 3-in-1 lever shuts off the fuel supply automatically when the operator turns off the engine ignition.

SUSTAINABILITY

All new single cylinder Vanguard engines have been designed from the ground up to meet the highest industry standards. Every model meets both the European Stage 5 and EPA Phase 3 emissions standards.

Reduce oil usage up to 50%

While the recycling of used oil is common practice in the rental industry today, reducing the total quantity used by a rental company is much preferred. With the new Vanguard single cylinder engine range, rental companies can reduce their oil usage and recycling up to 50%*.

*50% oil use reduction based on 200 hour oil change intervals verses 100 hour oil change intervals of the industry standard. Refer to engine operator's manuals for oil maintenance guidelines.
