I wanted to see what some of you thought about the performance of outdoor power equipment that normally was powered by two stroke engines but because of emissions are now powered by four strokes? It is hard to beat a two stroke for the power to weight ratio, I think we can all agree on that. Now take for instance a piece of equipment that weight isn't so much an issue. Maybe a weed trimmer or weed whacker for instance. We have one that has a two stroke and one is a four stroke and it is kind of hard to tell much of a difference other then the sound. The four stroke sounds like it is going to blow but seems to make just as much power. The one big thing I do like about the four stroke / four cycle is that you don't have to mix gas. Just check the oil level like anything else and top it off with gas and go.
