The 240 hole digger from General Equipment Company features the construction industry’s first use of four-stroke engine technology on a one-man, handheld hole-digging product. The 240 is just one model in General Equipment’s complete line of portable hole digging equipment designed for use in lawn and garden, homeowner and light construction digging projects. A 1.6-horsepower Subaru EH035 four-stroke gasoline engine supplies the power to the 240 hole digger. The engine’s four-stroke technology is far more fuel efficient than a two-stroke system, and it complies with all applicable emission control regulations. The four-stroke engine also eliminates the need for premixed fuel and oil solutions, effectively removing any worries of engine damage caused by improper mixing techniques. A Magura twist grip throttle controls the engine speed for optimal power output.
