Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power released its Vanguard air-cooled V-Twin Big Block EFI engine.

The new EFI technology is available in its 33, 35 and 37 gross hp Big Block horizontal shaft engines. It features an automotive-based, closed-loop EFI system for up to 25 percent better fuel economy compared to the carbureted Big Block engines, the company said.

Three diagnostics features include in-field blink codes, supported by Vanguard’s exclusive Power Code; a tiny scan reader that can be plugged into the service port to display error codes; and a cable connecting the ECU to a computer for a deeper dive into engine data.

“Since Vanguard pioneered the Big Block engine category in 2005, they have been famous for delivering big power in a compact air-cooled engine,” said Jim Cross, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. “With the Big Block EFI engine, operators are getting that versatile all-day power with the added benefit of a more fuel-efficient power source.”
