July 19, 2018 – The addition of the 37.0 gross horsepower EFI Big Block™ V-twin (993cc) Vanguard engine has expanded the power options for the Scag Turf Tiger II.

This increases the Vanguard engine options for the Scag Turf Tiger II that is already powered by the Vanguard 35.0 gross horsepower Big Block V-twin (993cc).

Vanguard engines have also earned new placements on select Ferris, Wright and Walker mower models.

“Adding Vanguard offerings to these product lines allows customers to choose an engine they can rely on for high-quality performance,” Randy Ballard, vice-president of consumer and commercial turf engine sales at Briggs & Stratton, said. “Customers who opt for Vanguard power receive a premium, field-proven engine trusted to get the job done.”
