REDUCED OPERATING COSTS

 

EFI should not be a one-size fits all solution. The Vanguard EFI systems were designed to prioritize the benefits of electronic fuel injection to maximize productivity where it matters most, in each application and environment to ensure top engine performance. It’s EFI done right.

Vanguard looked for ways to reduce downtime associated with the most significant maintenance item – engine oil. The result is the ground breaking Oil Guard System.

 Fuel savings may vary based on cutting conditions and other factors.


SUSTAINABILITY

All Vanguard V-Twin engines have been designed to meet the highest industry standards. Every model meets both the European Stage 5 and EPA Phase 3 emissions standards.

Reduce oil usage by over 40%

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 Oil Guard™, exclusive to Vanguard 810cc V-Twin engines, rental companies can reduce their oil usage and recycling by over 40%*.

*43% less oil used per 500 hour replacement cycle with a Vanguard 810 with Oil Guard™ compared to standard 100 hour oil change intervals of engines without Oil Guard. Refer to engine operator's manuals for oil maintenance guidelines.
