Engines for parks machinery
The four new Vanguard single-cylinder engines are used in aerators, tillers, overseeders, chippers, power augers and other landscape and turf machines. The units carry gross horsepower ratings ranging from 5.5 to 10. The engines address the top worksite challenges cited by end-user customers and OEMs: heavy dust, lack of regular maintenance, filtration issues and oil dilution during transportation. The Vanguard models have an integrated switch that simultaneously shuts off the ignition and the fuel, ensuring that fuel stays where it belongs and helps eliminate fouled plugs, hydraulic lock, cylinder wash-down and crankcase oil dilution caused by vibration during towing. Features include a high-mounted canister-style air cleaner, water-repellant air filter and a forged crankshaft with dual ball bearings that minimizes friction and heat build-up.
