Description

The engine powers a lawn mower blade to cut grass faster, easier, and more efficiently than man powered mowers and previous engine models.

How It Works

This engine works on a four-stroke cycle. A manual crank starts the cycle while creating a vacuum to draw gas and air into the cylinder. Concurrently, an electrical current is produced to create a spark which would ignite the fuel-air mixture compressed in cylinder by the piston. This piston turns the camshaft through a linear-to-rotational energy conversion. The camshaft then turns the output of the motor, which is a blade, to cut the grass.
