Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power released its Vanguard TransportGuard engine feature designed to prevent damage caused by oil and fuel dilution during transportation.

“Our focus is always on enhancing the productivity of our customers,” said Jim Cross, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. “TransportGuard prevents downtime by effectively addressing a major problem: fuel contamination.”

TransportGuard’s simultaneous fuel/ignition shutoff keeps fuel in place during transport, which helps prevent fouled plugs, hydraulic lock, oil dilution and other problems, the company said.

“Equipment owners can be confident that engines are protected from potential damage caused by oil dilution,” Cross said. “They can eliminate the costs and downtime associated with unnecessary oil changes.”

TransportGuard comes standard on all Vanguard single-cylinder horizontal engines, which includes a gross hp rating from 5.5 to 10.
