13 Dec Preserve Two-Stroke Equipment Power
AMSOIL SABER® Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil (ATP) guarded against rpm loss 21 percent better than ECHO Power Blend* XTended Life* Universal 2-Stroke Oil**
Lawn and landscape professionals, some of our best potential customers, must deliver impeccable service in the face of several challenges, including rising equipment costs and slim margins. A zero-turn commercial mower, for example, can easily cost several thousand dollars. Meanwhile, insurance, labor and other costs are increasing, yet customers continue to demand that jobs be completed on time and up to standards.
AMSOIL is a perfect match for lawn and landscape professionals. The performance of AMSOIL products positions you to address these challenges and help increase landscapers’ profitability.
Preserve Equipment Power
Preserving the power and operability of handheld two-stroke equipment such as trimmers, backpack blowers and chainsaws is one way you can help landscapers be more profitable. Oils with poor detergency invite heavy carbon buildup in exhaust ports and on spark arrestor screens, which restricts airflow and reduces power. Equipment becomes difficult to start and lacks sufficient power to get the job done, frustrating workers. Eventually, equipment can quit running completely.
AMSOIL SABER® Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil protected against power-robbing carbon in Stihl* string trimmers following a 300-hour test, while a leading two-stroke oil brand led to heavy deposits and power loss. The same issue of the magazine includes results that show AMSOIL Synthetic Formula 4-Stroke® Small Engine Oil’s (ASE) superior resistance to harmful engine deposits compared to a leading oil brand.
More Proof Of Performance
AMSOIL compared SABER Professional to ECHO* Power Blend* XTended Life* Universal 2-Stroke Oil in ECHO string trimmers. ECHO is a major brand among professionals and, like other original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), ECHO encourages use of its own OEM-branded oil in its equipment.
AMSOIL SABER Professional offers excellent protection against piston ring sticking, scuffing and deposits.
As in the Stihl trimmers tested earlier this year, SABER Professional also proved superior at fighting harmful carbon buildup, greatly reducing exhaust port blocking and spark arrestor screen plugging. ECHO Power Blend, in contrast, led to significant carbon buildup in the trimmer pictured, which caused the engine to lose power as the study progressed. SABER Professional also protected against rpm loss – which is closely related to power – 21 percent better than the ECHO product by the end of the test.
