Vanguard Engines Feature Three-Year Commercial Limited Warranty

Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power last week announced that its Vanguard air-cooled gasoline engines, which entered the market worldwide on July 1, will feature a three-year commercial limited warranty.

This makes Briggs & Stratton the only manufacturer of small, commercial engines to offer a three-year limited warranty on a global scale for a full horsepower range, the company said.

“Vanguard engines are used to power a wide range of equipment in all types of jobsite environments around the world,” said Dan Roche, marketing manager with Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. “With such a strong track record of performance and reliability, increasing Vanguard’s warranty was an easy decision. It’s another way we can provide meaningful business solutions to our commercial customers.”

Briggs & Stratton’s global, three-year warranty for Vanguard engines is a result of listening to the needs of its customers. In today’s global marketplace, original equipment manufacturers routinely distribute their products to multiple regions of the world. For these OEMs, a single, global warranty is the logical way to provide marketing and product support consistency.

The new Vanguard warranty is backed by the Briggs & Stratton global service network. This network is equipped with a 24-hour parts support system and electronic claims filing to expedite parts delivery and warranty payment.

“Time is money for our commercial customers,” said Roche. “Our warranty and support systems are built to get equipment back on the job site as quickly as possible.”

The new three-year limited warranty covers Vanguard air-cooled, gasoline engines installed on commercial equipment with the exception of home standby generators and utility vehicles, which are covered under their own specific warranties. The warranty covers engines on equipment in dealer or OEM inventory that is put into service on or after July 1.

Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power is a leading provider of commercial power solutions. The Vanguard engine family includes single-cylinder engines from 2.4 to 15 gross hp, Vanguard V-Twin horizontal and vertical engines from 14 to 23 gross hp, and Vanguard air-cooled V-Twin Big Block engines from 25 to 35 gross hp(horizontal), and 28-36 gross hp (vertical).
