What is 4 Stroke and Why Should I be Interested?
Most garden machinery uses a 2 stroke engine, these are great engines and work well but have their limitations.
A 2 stroke engine has to work hard at higher engine rpm's to produce consistent power which can shorten the engine lifespan.
2 stroke engines also require you to mix the fuel with oil to lubricate the internal parts, meaning they are less fuel efficient and produce more smoke from the exhaust, as you are burning the oil at the same time as burning the fuel.
The 4 stroke engine, however, produces more torque than the 2 stroke engine resulting in a more powerful rotational force.
So a 4 stroke engine can be a smaller capacity than a 2 stroke and still produce as much power and increase fuel efficiency.
There is also the advantage that a 4 stroke engine will run on straight unleaded petrol and requires no messy mixing of fuel and oil and will also produce lower emissions and less noise.
So is 2 Stroke dead?
No, 2 stroke is still a cost-effective way of producing garden machinery that works well but the introduction of 4 stroke machines, gives the end user another choice to find garden machinery that will best suit their needs.
