Briggs & Stratton To Showcase Resilient Products At 50th Anniversary Hire18 Convention

With more than 100 years of experience in the outdoor power equipment industry, this year Briggs & Stratton is a proud sponsor of the Hire and Rental Industry Association’s 50th anniversary Convention, HIRE18. Connecting the entire hire industry and associated markets in Australia, HIRE18 will take place at The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) on May 30-31 2018. HIRE18 will be a celebration of 50 years history, recognising the great achievements that have helped shape the rental industry, as well as a look at new technologies, the next generation of hire professionals and what the future might hold.

The Briggs & Stratton portfolio encompasses complete solutions and iconic brands such as Victa®, Ferris®, Billy Goat® and Vanguard™–with an exciting array of durable quality products that are suitable for the Hire and Rental industry and consumers.

The Vanguard 200 is a single cylinder, horizontal shaft commercial engine developed around key areas of performance critical to improving overall productivity including starting, maintenance intervals, service and support, and total cost of ownership.

Vanguard engines are engineered to deliver the best value and performance, as well as setting the global standard for industrial grade petrol engines, and include an advanced version of Transport Guard, Vanguard’s exclusive single ignition and fuel shutoff designed to prevent oil dilution during transport.

Fast, reliable and maintenance-free starting along with a cast-iron sleeve aids for durability and superior performance.

Briggs & Stratton’s Elite Petrol Generator is designed to provide users with a safe and reliable solution to get power in remote outdoor locations for a range of applications.

The heavy-duty frame protects the generator and stands up to transport while the fuel-efficient overhead valve engine starts effortlessly and runs smoothly to maintain power requirements.

The Ferris IS2100Z with Oil Guard is a first-of-its-kind solution for the commercial turf market.

Ferris mowers with the Oil Guard System offer an increased oil capacity of 4.7 litres, allowing cooler running, longer engine life and extended service intervals.

This, combined with Electronic Fuel Injection, challenges traditional diesel units with economy, torque, longevity and service costs – providing a greater rate of return on your capital investment.

Billy Goat’s AE1300H Hydro Aerator significantly improves hole quantity and quality due to Patent

Pending variable aeration density (VAD™), which creates 2-10 times more holes than drum models in one pass. In-ground turning also provides unmatched manoeuvrability, ergonomics and reduced turf damage.

The independently acting FLEXTECH™arms are durable and forgiving for unmatched reliability. The intuitive hydro-drive controls allow users to feather the speed and aerate in both forward and reverse with fingertip control, reducing fatigue and vibration.
