Capitalizing on its TransportGuard system, Briggs & Stratton recently reached an agreement to outfit SpeeCo PowerPro 22- and 28-ton horizontal/vertical log splitters with Vanguard 10-gross-horsepower single-cylinder engines.
“SpeeCo was looking for durable and solution-oriented engines that could stand up to the challenges of the rental industry,” said Dan Roche, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. “Our TransportGuard system was the answer because it solves so many of the problems routinely experienced by rental equipment operators.”
Briggs & Stratton’s TransportGuard system comes standard on its line of Vanguard single-cylinder engines. The system, debuted in 2010, simultaneously shuts off the fuel and the ignition to eliminate human error. The system is designed to keep fuel where it belongs during transport preventing fouled plugs, hydraulic lock, cylinder washdown or crankcase oil dilution.
