If this is the one I am thinking of . . . one word comes to mind . . cost $$$. There are many nice engine designs out there but their price per HP is high. I saw a video on an engine like the one you describe. It was being developed in Austrailia. Had some good efficiencies, but had a lot more high toleranced moving parts than a traditional internal combustion engine. The applications I can see for an engine of this design would be for military apps, or perhaps large powerplant apps, if the reliability can be proven. Commercial application for this type of engine would be nil. Mikegyver has spoken.
Does anyone on this thread know anything about the rand cam engine. It is a rotary engine that uses vanes that slide axially through a rotor (6, 8, 12 or 16 vanes).The two cams are phased so that the shallowest poit on one trough corresponds to the deepest on the other. It uses ports for intake and exhaust. In the 12vane configuration it is suppose to produce 24 power impulses per revolution. Anyway any input on this thing good or bad I would appreciate!
Reported on Bloomberg Insiders, chairman Stratton and a VP sold over 80m shares in Nov. check the chart, its a triple top. Last Nov, after hiting mid 50's stock tanked. Is it headed down again in the spring like last year. Second Q in trouble with poor winter engine sales and fear of recession in the spring?
Your analysis is not quite correct! Chairman Stratton owns so many options/shares that he is obliged to sell shares on a regular basis. Also, regarding second Q being trouble, Briggs and Stratton does not manufacture winter engine. Will the stock price go down in the Spring? Probably yes!!!
