RedMax Strato-Charged Engine Wins Gold
Komatsu Zenoah's Strato-Charged engine brought home the gold from Germany. The low emissions, two-cycle engine, which powers many RedMax products, took the top honor at GaLaBeau 2004, a major European landscape trade show.
During its four-day run, GaLaBeau, held in Nuremberg, attracted more than 49,000 professional gardeners and landscape contractors from Germany, Austria, German-speaking Switzerland and eastern Europe. The Strato-Charged engine was honored for technology that allows it to meet clean air regulations without the need for a heavy, hot catalytic converter.
Komatsu Zenoah's patented Strato-Charged engine was the first two- cycle engine to meet California's CARB II and U.S. EPA Phase 2 emission standards without a catalytic converter. The company is now applying Strato-Charged technology to engines that meet the even more stringent 2005 standards.
