An outboard engine is a type of propulsion system used on boats. It is a self-contained unit that is mounted outside of the boat, typically on the transom (the rear of the boat), and consists of an engine, gearbox, and propeller. Outboard engines are designed to provide power to the boat and can be used to propel it through the water.
Outboard engines are available in a variety of sizes and power ratings, from small 2-stroke engines that are suitable for small boats and canoes, to large 4-stroke engines that can provide enough power to propel large boats and watercraft. They can be powered by gasoline, diesel, or electric motors.
Outboard engines are popular for several reasons, one of the main reasons is that they are easy to install and maintain. They can be easily removed from the boat for maintenance and repairs, and the propeller can be easily removed for cleaning or replacement. Additionally, because the engine is mounted outside of the boat, it does not take up valuable space inside the boat.
Outboard engines also provide more flexibility for the boat owner, as the engine can be easily removed and replaced with another engine of a different size or power rating, depending on the boating needs. It also allows for the engine to be tilted up when not in use, which is useful when navigating shallow waters, in order to avoid damaging the propeller.
The most common types of outboard engines are 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines. The 2-stroke engines are typically less expensive and more powerful, but are also less fuel efficient and release more pollutants. 4-stroke engines are more fuel efficient, release fewer pollutants, and are more expensive. Electric outboard engines are becoming more common as well and are very quiet and efficient, but they require recharging and have limited range.
The T9.8 outboard engine is a 2 cylinder, single overhead camshaft, 4 stroke diesel engine. Excellent performance, high reliability, environmental protection and easy maintenance. Large torque at low speed, flexible structure and good load performance. The engine is equipped with an engine developed from scratch according to the requirements of pvc fishing boats up to 40 HP. This means a speed rating of 810 rpm (neutral) is sufficient for a 40 hp small to medium boat with a maximum output of 6 hp and a typical cruising speed of 5 knots. The technical characteristics of this 2-cylinder diesel 2-stroke engine have been optimized by combining modern technologies such as new injection technology and gearbox construction using lightweight materials.
