What is TransportGuard™?

Transport Guard by Vanguard Engines


Vanguard Single Cylinder horizontal shaft engines include our patent pending TransportGuard™ feature. Integrating a single action fuel & ignition shut-off switch is a simple, yet genius solution to a complex and pervasive problem for rental stores.


Why use TransportGuard™?

  • Solves #1 Rental Problem 
    Eliminates operator error of failing to shut-off the fuel after use. Automatic fuel shut-off prevents oil/fuel dilution during equipment transportation.
  • Reduces Total Cost of Ownership
    Eliminates costly and unnecessary oil changes due to operator error.
  • Increases Productivity
    By reducing unnecessary oil changes means the equipment can be in use more frequently

The patent pending TransportGuard system integrates the ignition and fuel shut off switches, thus eliminating the opportunity for customer error. Problem solved.
