Vanguard Engines to Highlight Top Contractor Questions at World of Concrete

Jan. 17, 2014

Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power is unveiling Vanguard "Question & Vanswer" interactive displays this week at World of Concrete booth No. O30546 in Las Vegas. The displays are designed to promote real solutions to the most common engine problems in the construction industry.

"A lot of contractors are realizing the state of the engine market is in flux right now and that these changes have an impact on the power equipment on a jobsite," said Dan Roche, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. "Fortunately, we at Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power have spent a lot of time researching and engineering cost-effective solutions that answer a lot of today’s challenges."

From regulatory changes, to emission and fuel standards and human behavior issues, the "Question & Vanswer" promotion addresses many of the more-common questions construction contractors have about their equipment’s power sources. Those questions include:

  • How do I avoid the rising equipment costs driven by Tier 4?
  • How do ethanol blends affect my engine?
  • How can I prevent oil dilution during transport?
  • How can I get instant information about my engine?
