Wasn't aware a man card had ever been issued to you. So, you're ok! Go enjoy some quiche.
I love the hell out of my electric trimmer.
I'll always have a big honking gas tractor but I don't care about my trimmer/yard tools.
I've gone electric for a lot of outdoor stuff.
No issues on battery life yet, and some of the batteries are at the 5 year range.
I traded my 24v Ryobi battery trimmer to my folks for their Kawasaki gas commercial trimmer. I miss how easy it was just to pick up that little Ryobi and go, but the smaller battery wouldn't get 1/4 of the way through our yard. We have 3-3.5 acres of heavily landscaped area, so there are several thousand feet of linear edging to handle (8 separate landscape beds, plus house/driveway). I bet the newer 40v would do it, but the smaller 24v struggled.
We use the 40v hedge trimmer, which is a friggin beast.
Now we just need someone to design a bump-feed that actually works.
I have the blower and the hedge trimmer and love them. Grabbing the blower and just using it is a lot nicer than running out 100' of extension cords and I don't use it enough to want to mess with a gas one. My 10 year old can grab the elec blower and go to work. My Echo trimmer is still running strong, but once it bites the dust I will likely go electric to replace it. I looked at the electric mowers, but with how much I have to cut and the fact that I let it get pretty tall sometimes I didn't want to mess with it.
I have a B&D 40v
I love it
Just this morning I was looking at battery powered pole saws. Better than lugging that gas one around and a lot quieter, especially while working around my deer stands. Hopefully it will last a few years, it is not like I will be using it every day.
I'm staying gas......Probably forever.
Or at least untl my government makes me switch......And even then I'll be a outlaw.
I would too if I had as much property as you.
I was always against them until I watched one of my dads neighbors use one in like 7" of overgrown mess. It didn't even bog, just chewed straight through it and left a surprisingly nice cut.
Our older cub constantly struggled with anything like that.
Could be a consideration here shortly.
Meh, it needs oil and I need more oil for the gas mixture and the blade is dull so just ordered a new one. Ordered it all from Lowes. A break from yard work it is. No Complaints.
