Quite heavy compared with two stroke
Heavy to turn to reverse
Thump going into gear
No more power than 2 stroke
Keeping oil topped up may be a chore
Caution needed when carrying and storing due to oil in sump.
Very good quality finish. Starts first time provided instructions regarding first and second pull are followed. Smooth trolling. Good twist grip throttle. Good fuel economy. No need to mix oil and fuel.
This is a good quality reliable reasonably quiet engine but advantages against two stroke are primarily environmental.
