Replacement for 2-Cycle engine power?

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by Bluesteel, Feb 16, 2003.

  1. I heard a rumor that in a few years there will be no more new 2-Cycle engines manufactured or sold. I imagine there'll be a "grandfather" clause to let those in existance continue usage. But, is there any news on what will replace that power source? Small 4-Stroke engines with presurized oil? Rechargeable batteries?

    I've heard that rumor too. At a recent power equipment expo we got to see Stihl's new 4-stroke trimmers. The rep gave us all the details about them and tried to get us to believe in them but IMO you can't beat a 2-stroke for the hand-held power equipment. Im not too worried about that law coming into effect anytime soon.

    I'm not really happy about the Suzuki 2 stroke being phased out, but, whatever will be best for earth.
  4. Anyone hear anything about battery power?
