May have to do a frame extension, but that does look pretty cool!

go ahead I'll stick with the Kohlers and Onans...LOL you're grass is gonna get pretty tall! When it is done, well you'll be able to cut it fast, but likely won't be for some time...

Since the video was made in 2008 and the German guy said 18 months to get it going I am surprised nothing has been heard about the engine.

That is a very neat concept, I hope they can get them to work out OK. I would love to see one in person running!!

Thanks for sharing...

A brake specific fuel consumption of 0.36 lb/hp for a 2-stroke is pretty good compared to a 4-stroke Onan or a Kohler and close to what the diesels in our SCUTs can manage. I'm not too sure if they can scale down the width for a tractor, not to mention the cost with all that extra machining.

It's easy to see why they're looking for a military application, rather than Joe average consumer.

Tudor,
Lots of things 'start' with military beginnings so the fact that it starts with the military isn't new to me. its power output is good ...this will need further development...

That's a pretty neat concept. To bad nothing else on the engine ever surfaced.

i'm gonna go talk with a guy that just got out and see if he saw any in combat apps. of course they were talking about those a long time ago but lacked the teck nowhow to build one that was efficent and whoever was trying must have let it go , i saw one that had two crankshafts geared together on opposite ends of the engine in popular mechanics in the 70's or 80's and that was the last time i heard about them until now so bring them on , just wish they would build on that would fit on a speedex :thumbs:

Did he say.... "clank shavt"?

They must have run into problems else it would be all the rage right now. Kinda like the rotary engine once was. A lot more moving parts than standard.

Just a matter of time, some guy named Bill Gates along with Navistar are involved along with billionaire Vinod Khosla.
