If you’re a do-it-yourselfer with yard work, you likely use hand-held two stroke equipment. Cutting and edging machines both use two-stroke engines, regardless of brand. If your yard work is limited to your own property, you don’t likely worry about the cost of the 2-stroke oil. One bottle probably lasts all year, so you don’t lose sleep over ultimate protection with lean mix ratios.
However, if you operate a lawn care business with multiple 2-stroke pieces of equipment, it’s a different picture. They run all-week-long during the busy summer months. Consequently, you’ll use a lot more than one single bottle of 2-stroke oil. And equipment breakdowns due to the wrong mix ratio isn’t good for business.
The Cost-Cutting Solution
AMSOIL’s “Saber Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil” protects with mix ratios up to a lean 100:1. (100 parts gasoline to 1 part 2-stroke oil). Under the right conditions, a leaner mixture stretches a single bottle farther into your busy season. In other words, it offers lower operational costs throughout your busy time of year. In fact, you can reduce operating costs up to 50% by using the Saber Oil at a 100:1 mix ratio.
Beyond Mowers and Trimmers
If you run chainsaws or other 2-stroke equipment during the colder months, AMSOIL’s Saber Oil provides the same great protection for your cutting equipment. The Saber Oil is safe to use in brands such as STIHL, ECHO, Toro, Shindaiwa, Craftsman. It’s also safe for 4-mix STIHL and Hybrid 4 Shindaiwa engines at the same 100:1 mix ratio.
A Winning Combination: High-Quality Clean with Low Smoke
The high-quality, synthetic Saber Oil burns cleaner than competitor’s brands of synthetic and conventional base oils. Carbon deposits build up over time with conventional oils, leading to stuck piston rings, clogged exhaust ports and plugged spark arrestor screens. AMSOIL tested the Saber Oil for 300 hours in a professional-use environment with ECHO string trimmers. In tests, the Saber Professional Oil mixed at 100:1 ratio resisted carbon almost twenty times better than ECHO Power Blend XTended Life Universal 2-Stroke Oil mixed at 50:1. Using half the 2-stroke oil, AMSOIL performs well beyond the competitor brands.
One drawback of running 2-stroke engines is their tendency to smoke. Generally, people run rich mixtures to keep conventional oil protecting their engines. As a result, rich mixtures tend to emit a blue colored smoke. If inhaled, the smoke causes respiratory irritation.
With AMSOIL Saber Oil, even at a rich mixture ratio, you won’t worry about smoky irritation. Saber passes the industry-standard smoke test at the standard rich mix ratio. When it is mixed at the recommended lean SABER Ratio, smoke is virtually undetectable.

Storage and Stabilization
When you store your equipment at the end of your commercial season, AMSOIL Saber Oil acts as a gasoline stabilizer. There is no need to add a secondary stabilizer to keep the fuel and oil mixture fresh during storage. Simply top off the fuel tank to prevent moisture from building up inside the fuel tank. Then run the equipment briefly to ensure the fresh mixture has made it to the engine. Finally, put the equipment away until next season. It’s just that simple.
You can expect great results switching to AMSOIL synthetic Saber Oil. Your 2-sroke equipment will run more efficiently, with less wear on the internal bearings and pistons. It will emit virtually no smoke or cause respiratory irritation. Best of all, your yearly maintenance and operating costs significantly drop.
