I really like knowing that my 4 stroke will last a long, long time without any modifications necessary. It is quieter, requires less maintenance, runs smoother by a huge margin, and so far has been much cheaper to operate, though it cost more initially to get.
What motor would you recommend and is it spindle or chain driven?
