The Honda 4-stroke petrol engine
Honda was the first company to realize, 16 years ago, brushcutters equipped with a 4-stroke engine, pure petrol instead of 2-stroke oil-petrol mixture. The trimmers of the well-known company are designed to be 360 ° efficient, in every position. The 4-stroke engine offers a series of great advantages. First of all, compared to a mixture engine of equal power, the petrol engine does not consume oil and saves 50% of fuel. It also wears less easily and requires 30% less spare parts and maintenance. The petrol engine is less noisy than the 2-stroke one, with lower vibrations, has an immediate start and does not emit the typical smell of the mixture. Equal in power, the 4-stroke engine has a higher torque that ensures better performance. The petrol engine frees up to 85% less polluting gases in the air, thus respecting the environment.
Brushcutters technical features
This agricultural machine has an optimal weight / power ratio and is capable of efficiently cutting both tall grass and weeds. The OHC technology guarantees an easy and quick start without the slightest backlash. The fuel tank is large and therefore allows a long working autonomy. Higher engine torque is available already at low engine speeds for a quick and safe cut. The clutch is technologically advanced as is the width and diameter of the friction material. The materials that make up the rod, the handle, the anti-vibration mount and the accelerator ensure excellent durability. There is no need for tools to access the air filter. The large muffler helps keep engine noise low. The beat-and-away head allows the user to let the thread out without having to interrupt the gardening operation.
