Robert if you will run your two strokes wide open 95% of the time they wont clog up near as much.
uh huh. that carbon really clogs it up!
thats what shuts down most two cycle engine is that carbon build up . If people would just run their machines at 75% and up and not 'bump' the thottle they would reduce build up and get a better cut. that's just my exp anywho
robin also makes a 4 stroke weedeater..
run a leaner gas to oil ratio no less than 50:1
I think the new PRO mag has a picture of one in it. I would probably consider the honda first, but weight would need to be considered. During the hottest part of summer a heavy trimmer would likely end up in storage.
I saw the new Shindaiwa 4-stroke trimmer this week at the Peoria Farm Show. It uses the 2-cycle oil in the gas just like the 2-stroke engines. Stihl is making a similar one which is to be available next summer. They say it weighs only 6 oz. more than their 2-stroke.
Shindaiwa??, i would go after that
For what it's worth, I have owned a Ryobi 1079r 4 stroke for two years now with no problems. I would classify use as "Heavy Homeowner" as I use it to trim, edge, and blow my yard & a few others down the road.
Engine has never given me trouble starting, and is suprisingly quieter than a 2-stroke.
Was it heavy to you? And I really like the new B&S 4 cycle. I have not bought one yet, though.
