Vanguard Model# 305447-3075-G1

"I highly recommend the Briggs & Stratton Model# 305447-3075-G1 engine that was used to replace the Briggs 16 HP in my 582 International Cub Cadet garden tractor. With only a minor adjustment the engine was an exact fit. The difference in the Vanguard Twin Engine was noticed the first time I started it, having a nice quick start and much more power than the original engine. The engine runs quiet, delivers a lot of torque and stays cool while mowing large areas and on side hills. The air, and oil filters are easily accessed for ease of regular maintenance. Customer Service was great to work with when I had questions and the price was the lowest found when looking at a replacement, leaving me very satisfied with both the value and performance of this engine."

Vangaurd replacement engines

"I purchased a mod# 305447 16hp engine to replace a worn out 9hp on my Go-Devil short shaft mudmotor. Unit pretty much bolted right up with very few modifications. I am very pleased in the differance in performance HP and torque, both are a major differance in some of the places I access
in my boat. Buying replacement OEM engines through Northern Tool are a great alternative to buying from the factory or (dealers) for a fraction of the cost! Vangaurd engines are a great investment.

Briggs & Stratton 16 hp engine

,

from NC
"I used it to power a generator you add your own power to. It had more than the amount of power recomended ( the generator required 16 hp for use)
It started well every time I needed it. I did not use the electric start feature, just the pull cord. It ran for four to five hours on a tank of fuel
I would certianly buy one again if needed
