Shindaiwa introduces new C4 technologyShindaiwa, Inc., a world leader in small engine technology and portable outdoor power equipment recently introduced its new C4 Technology.
A unique cross between 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines, C4 Technology combines light weight, excellent torque, great throttle response, and the capability for all-day, all-position use. Tom Bunch, President of Shindaiwa, Inc., stated, "Compared to typical 2-cycle engines, operators of our new C4 Technology will enjoy great product performance coupled with better fuel economy, low noise, and dramatically reduced exhaust gas emissions. Our revolutionary C4 Technology represents a springboard for a new level of market profile and profitability for all our customers."
According to Pete Fernald, Technical Services Manager for Shindaiwa, Inc., the T2500 trimmer is first in a range of commercial products using C4 Technology. "The 4-cycle T2500 is a true all position trimmer because it does not have an oil sump. In addition, all competitive 4-cycle units with an oil sump, operators need to worry about running low of vital lubrication and scoring the engine. In other words, it is business as usual with the T2500 trimmer because of its single fuel tank and standard 50:1 mix. And, the best part is, no dipstick." Fernald went on to say, "Because it's a 4-stroke, the new T2500 trimmer, when released, will meet and beat the tough exhaust gas emission regulations." At 24.5 cc and 1.1 horsepower, the T2500 trimmer is designed especially for the demanding commercial market.
