MILWAUKEE, WI (September 19, 2017) – Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power engines are now available for propane conversion through Propane Power Systems. The EPA-certified conversions are available for 11 Vanguard® and Commercial Series engines, ranging in displacement from 205cc single-cylinder horizontals up to 993cc BIG BLOCK® V-Twin engines. These certified converted engines allow equipment manufacturers to offer propane to customers looking to take advantage of the benefits of propane-powered equipment.
Propane Power Systems, a division of R&R Products, worked on Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power engines and leading equipment manufacturers’ products to develop the fuel system and mounting conversion kits. The Propane Education & Research Council provided funds to support technical training for Briggs & Stratton dealer service personnel.
Jeremy Wishart, deputy director of business development at the Propane Education & Research Council says that “Briggs & Stratton’s expansive commercial engine lineup that is convertible to propane is yet another sign that propane-powered equipment is taking hold.”
“The propane trend is growing in many commercial markets, especially in landscape and light-construction,” said Jim Cross, Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power marketing manager. “Propane Power System’s development of conversion kits for our Vanguard and Commercial Series engines provides OEMs a wide array of certified solutions for their customers who want propane.”
Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power enhances job site productivity through its vast support network which includes more than 40,000 highly-trained dealers and distributors in 100 countries, advanced service education and training, comprehensive online dealer resources, on-time parts delivery and fast online warranty processing.
Vanguard’s global three-year commercial limited warranty* continues to cover the non-propane parts of the engine while Propane Power Systems’ warranty covers the fuel system.
