I have recently learned that my long terraces (banks) which are around 40
feet long and take usually 4 to 5 passes are probably ruining my lawn
mowers. Use of a 2 cycle engine machine has been recommended. Is there any
such mower available anymore? I would appreciate any comments and
suggestions. Thank you.
I don't see as how a 2 cycle engine is going to help much. 2 cycle engines
are simpler and have less moving parts, but I don't know if they really last
longer. If you are wearing out lawn mower engines, look for ones with steel
or chrome cylinder liners. That seems to make the biggest difference on
The 4 cycle mower could lose lubrication on steep slopes while the 2 cycle
has it's lubrication in the fuel- if it's running it's oiled. Lawn Boy did
make some great 2 cycle mowers.
Maybe they still do.
