Cool, Calm and Collected

Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power’s Vanguard 810cc EFI engine series are available in 24, 26 or 28 gross hp, and have an automotive based closed-loop EFI system. The engines also have 810cc of displacement for higher torque.

Other features designed to ensure the engine runs cool,clean and quiet include its debris chopper fan that provides up to30-degree cooler engine temperatures.

Additionally, the Vanguard810cc EFI engines offer diagnostic features to arm fleet or dealer technicians with information to eliminate downtime and optimize engine performance. Three diagnostics options will enable easy identification of issues in the field, and provide technicians unmatched ability to test, update,save and share engine data. These include in-field blink codes, supported by Vanguard’s exclusive PowerCode; a Tiny Scan reader that can be plugged into the service port to display error codes; and a cable connecting theECU to a computer for a deeper dive into engine data.

The Vanguard 810cc EFI engines are almost exclusively assembled using Direct Current (DC) electric hand tools,which allows technicians to program the fastening process, allowing plant engineers to create a “DNA” for each individual engine.

Eliminate Pesky Pests

XXpire WG insecticide is available for purchase and use in 48 states.From Dow AgroSciences, XXpire has two new active ingredients that control both chewing and sap-feeding insects. It combines spinetoram and Isoclast Active, a brand-new class of insecticide chemistry, and is effective on 39 pests, including seven of the top 10 most troublesome ornamental insects.

Available for use in nurseries,greenhouses and non-residential landscapes, it offers two modes of action. Isoclastis a recently registered active ingredient and the sole member of the sulfoximine class of insect control agents. Spinetoram is a spinosyn insecticide that offers good insecticidal activity and long residual control.

When used according to label directions, XXpire controls whiteflies, aphids, mealybugs, lepidopterans, lacebugs, certain scales and thrips, and suppresses spidermites. It is also soft on beneficials and gentle on more than 300plants, including more than 100ornamental species.

Beware of the Monster

Little Wonder’s Monster Truck-Loader Line of leaf and debris truck loaders produce a debris shredding ratio of 15 to 1.

The Monster Truck Loaders are available in four models: 18 hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard with skid or skid w/swing-away hitch mount; 29 hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard with skid or trailer mount; 35 hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard with skid or trailer mount; and 36 hp Yanmar diesel with skid or trailer mount.

This line features four steel blades teethed on three sides and a square stack design, which forces airflow to the corners to keep debris moving through the stack and chute reducing time-consuming clumping and clogs.

The flexible intake hose is 10feet long with a wide diameter for increased volume.

The New Command PRO

The 824cc Command PROEFI from Kohler Engines features a highly tuned air intake system that enhances airflow to maximize power and torque.

The engine is available in four models (ECV850, ECV860,ECV870 and ECV880) that offer27 to 33 hp and best-in-class peak torque, as well as fuel efficiency that will allow commercial users to save at least $600 per engine per year in fuel costs over similar sized carbureted engines, based on typical commercial cutter usage.

Like all Kohler EFI engines, the824cc uses the Kohler-designed closed-loop system, which means an oxygen sensor in the muffler continuously analyzes the air/fuel mixture. If the air/fuel mixture strays from the ideal level, the sensor triggers adjustments to the amount of fuel injected into the system.

To support easy maintenance,the engines are supported by proprietary diagnostic software,which can be used to tap into an engine’s critical performance data and provide automotive-grade diagnostic capabilities and a variety of information to help simplify upkeep and repairs.

Along with the gasoline models,two propane 824cc Command PRO EFI engines PCV850 andPCV860 (27 and 29 hp, respectively)are planned.
