Tug of War: Behind The Scenes

Evinrude recently put to put their 150-hp engine to the test against a four-stroke 150-hp engine made by Mercury.  Along with a drag race and other performance tests, the two engines faced off in a tug of war to see which engine had more power and torque.


An independent boating expert made sure that there was a level playing field (identical boats and engine settings), and then the engines battled against each other’s power.  Evinrude emerged victorious, pulling the Mercury-powered boat around the lake in convincing fashion!





Evinrude E-TEC has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, so it’s able to pump out a ton of power without being weighed down by a heavy engine.


See how the tests were organized and filmed in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the tug of war challenge.
