Briggs & Stratton to launch electrification solutions, new single-cylinders at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

Show attendees will have the opportunity to experience the products firsthand through several hands-on demos

Vanguard lithium battery

Briggs & Stratton will launch its new Vanguard Commercial Lithium Ion Battery pack and feature its entire lineup of new single-cylinder horizontal shaft engines at CONEXPO 2020.

The customized Vanguard Lithium Ion Battery, controller and battery charger work seamlessly together to deliver flexible power and performance. Vanguard applied its first battery to a mid-sized unmanned ground vehicle built by ARGO XTV, a manufacturer of extreme terrain vehicles. The fully battery powered unit is primarily operated in autonomous and tele-operation modes, keeping service people out of harm's way.

Also on display is the entire lineup of Vanguard's new single-cylinder horizontal shaft family of commercial engines, including the new Vanguard 14.0 gross HP 400, 10.0 gross HP 300, 6.5 gross HP 200 and 5.0 gross HP 160.  The 200 and 400 are currently available, with the 160 scheduled to launch later this year and the 300 scheduled to become available in 2021.  

The engine line features Vanguard innovations, including an oil management system which increases oil change intervals to 200 hours and cyclonic air filtration to dramatically reduce downtime associated with air filter maintenance. It is also equipped with TransportGuard, a single ignition and fuel shutoff to prevent oil/fuel dilution during transport.

Show attendees will have the opportunity to experience the new power solutions as well as Vanguard innovations firsthand in the booth through several hands-on demos.
