Briggs & Stratton Transportguard

After attending the recent 2011 Briggs & Stratton Technical Update Seminar, we were impressed with some of the latest improvements to the Briggs & Stratton engine line. Among these are the innovative new Transportguard System which integrates the engine ignition shut off with the fuel shut off. This is a great solution to the age old problem experienced during transport of engines when the operator forgets to close the fuel valve and fuel continues to flow into the engine as a result of fuel movement in the float bowl. The results of this problem have been oil contamination, fouled spark plugs, hydraulic lock and in many cases subsequent engine failure.

While the Transportguard System in currently only available on select Vanguard engine models, we hope Briggs & Stratton will continue to add it to other models in the future.

Another impressive new option is the addition of a flexible oil drain hose for snow engines. While this has been around for a while on tractor engines it will be a welcome feature to aide in oil changes on show throwers.

Among the other matters discussed at seminar were air filtration improvements, fuel solenoid improvements and a host of other innovations. Once again Briggs & Stratton has shown us why they have always been, and continue to be, a leader in engine innovation.
