TWO-STROKE ENGINE

Related Topics



Packed with power, Tornado engines from Echo comply with all current Class IV emissions regulations and will meet future requirements up to and including 2005. The engine sends a high-powered swirl of fuel and air into the engine, creating a whirlwind that intermixes with the remaining exhaust from the previous power. This vortex works to create a more complete combustion, resulting in less unburned fuel leaving through the exhaust. Operators can feel the engine's variable slope ignition timing at the first touch of the throttle, as it works to match ignition timing to the rpm of the engine, providing quicker and smoother acceleration with improved combustion efficiency.

HYDRAULIC OIL

Hot weather, aging hydraulic hoses and connectors and heavy usage of equipment are all elements of ultimate fluid loss on the course. Hydraulic oil spill and hose leakage from mowers can cause expensive brown spot and soil damage. The 6602 Low Tox hydraulic Oil from Lubrication Engineers helps minimize those problems as it has low ecotoxicity for environmental concerns, yet it offers the performance of premium hydraulic fluids. The product also helps minimize hydraulic hose and seal hardening while extending life and improving performance.

SPRINKLERS

With on-off/flow control at every sprinkler head, LittleValve products save water and labor costs. The pop-up riser replacements, shrub bodies and under-the-head fittings allow you to change out the nozzle and sprinkler head and flush without shutting down the system. When heading-up new installations or doing maintenance, one person does the job that used to take two, without getting soaked, relying on a remote control or throwing water down the drain. Control flow even without screens — each product is an adjustable pressure-compensating unit, so you get the amount of water you need right where it's needed.

BIO-PESTICIDE

Becker Underwood Inc. introduces Nematac S, a bio-pesticide that uses a natural enemy instead of chemicals to control damaging mole crickets on golf courses, sod farms, parks and pastures in the southeastern United States. The beneficial nematodes in Nematac S become active when applied to a soil profile and use mole crickets as hosts. The microscopic nematodes enter inside the mole crickets and release bacteria, which is lethal to the pest. The mole cricket becomes a food source for the nematodes, which will reproduce and continue to attack.
