Out With the Old - In With the New on P5 & P15 Sprayers!
The Vangard 5 HP Engine is Replacing the GC160 Engine on Kings Sprayers
Kings Sprayers has manufactured our P5 and P15 sprayer models for the past 40 years using the Honda GC160 Series engine. Honda has informed us they are discontinuing the model. All P5 and P15 sprayers purchased from here on out will be equipped with the comparable Briggs & Stratton Vanguard 5 HP engine.
The Vanguard engine has the same HP and performance as the GC160, and similar pricing, which means we can make the switch without increasing the cost or sacrificing any performance.
