This pure two-cycle engine has fewer moving parts, requires no valve maintenance and uses less fuel than traditional two-cycle engines. The EXZ2401 has a split-shaft and both the upper and lower driveshafts are made of solid steel. This allows the trimmer/brushcutter to be interchanged with RedMax pole saw, edger and long-reach hedge trimmer attachments.
