Two vertical-shaft Vanguard V-Twin engines add to the Briggs & Stratton line of Big Block engines.

February 01, 2006

Two vertical-shaft Vanguard V-Twin engines add to the Briggs & Stratton line of Big Block engines. The 895 and 993 cc feature a debris-management system that is incorporated into the air-cooling system. It allows the engine to run cooler and cleaner and enhances durability and performance, says the company. The engines are based on V-Twin/Overhead Valve technology to reduce component and equipment wear and provide optimum balance and low vibration. Steel-backed aluminum bearings increase load capacity and reduce engine noise, the company says. A lightweight aluminum block aims to increase power-to-weight ratio by reducing overall equipment weight.
