Comparison to 2 stroke equivalents:
The MM4 delivers it’s torque over a much wider engine speed range than a 2 stroke would. This means less high revving to get the power required. So …
- it’s much quieter – very important when using for prolonged periods and much less disturbing when working in built up area’s or parks
- it uses up to 40% less fuel and over 3 years, with no need for fuel additive, this can mount up to a 60% reduced fuel costs!
- lower revs means less vibration, reducing the risks of HAVS
- reduced exhaust emissions, nearly 50% below the EU Stage 2 (Europe) regulation standard..
.. and 4-stroke engines are inherently more reliable than 2-strokes!
