Hey you guys...
I have been looking into 2-strokes even more now and am beginning to believe that with electronic ignition the 2 stroke would be better than a 4 stroke (that is my opinion anyway). I am thinking now that the main thing that lets the 2 strokes down a little is the old points and condenser system of ignition. My dad has a chainsaw, motor mower and brush cutter all with 2 strokes that have electronic ignition. I know that the brush cutter and chainsaw are well over 15 years old. They have been absolutely "Flogged" with hard work on a large property. He has never had any problems in all those years. Oh, I take that back... The brush cutter had to be taken in for a service due to difficult starting, but that was the diaphram in the carb being old and damaged. That is all!!
Now, the previous motor mower he had before this one (which I think is about 10 years old) had points and condensor ignition system. With that one, you had to have it serviced regularly because of the points.
Does anyone agree with me here? I really feel that doing away with points, you would have an awesome machine!
The smoke soon disapears once the engine has warmed up a little anyway, so I don't understand the complaint there.
I know that I would much rather have something that can get along at a fast pace in case I got into trouble. Could you imagine being way out in the woods and having to get back in a hurry with a new Max or Argo?
