While reading some posts on arboristsite. com website, I came across some interesting information. It seems that between 2003 and 2005, legislators will enact tough new pollution standards that will virtually eliminate the 2 stroke engine in its current state. To combat this reality, some manufactorers like Shindaiwa and Stihl are creating hybrid 4/2stroke engines that use many of the parts of a 4 stroke engine but still run on a 50:1 fuel mix ratio. Shindaiwa's engine, I believe is labelled as the T2500 and is on their new T231 string trimmer. You can see it on their website at ?www.shindaiwa.com In addition, its seems many of the 2 stroke manufactorers aren't changing their product lines much in the next year because of the new legislation. How do you guys think this will impact the lawn care industry? Will sales of 2 stroke products be down in the next year thus leading to bargains?
