In a small workshop in Germany, brothers Hans and Heinz Emmerich began the development of the first small two stroke engine. The company was founded in 1948, and in the same year the first KMS30 engine was born. Intended as a power source for portable machines, the KMS 30 weighed in at 6.35 kilos yet produced 1.2hp, which was an incredible feat. At that time, the ‘lightest’ industrial engines weighed as much as 15 kilos.
