Buyers Guides , Hedge Trimmers / 11th January 2017

January can be all kinds of things, freezing cold, wet, frosty, snowy, windy, mild, sunny. But one thing you can be sure of – there won’t be much you can do for your garden during this month.

Using a Two-Stroke Machine

Ever wondered what the difference is between using a two-stroke machine and a four-stroke machine? There are many misconceptions about what the differences actually are and what type is best for you. Two-stroke engines require the fuel and oil (for lubrication) to be mixed together. This means that there will be no oil inlet on the machine and only one type of fuel is needed.

The ratios depend on the quality of oil that you have chosen to use. It is recommended to use high quality petrol and oil to extend the running life of the engine. If you use unsuitable fuels or mix ratios which do not comply with the specifications suggested then this can cause serious damage to the engine. Here…
