We had just bought our first house and I had a lawnmower but no weed eater. It had to be a gas powered one. No weak electric weed eater for this job. It was job that needed power a loud engine and a little bit of smoke pouring out of it. So that’s what I did. I got a gas powered eater and it was great…for a few times. After that it became a real pain to get started. The thing never idled correctly and I had to run it full bore all the time.
Late last summer the gas powered monster I had bought 10 years earlier finally had a enough. It was late enough in the year that I didn’t have to worry about it, but with spring finally here, it was once again time to address the problem. I ended up with a batter powered weed eater. Let me tell you it is AWESOME. Now I’ve only used it once, but so far, I’m liking it. Pull the trigger give it some juice and off you go. Now I haven’t quite done my full yard yet, but the back yard I have done and it’s chewed through a good bunch of grass and weeds.
It’s amazing what a bit of time will do to simple decisions like these!
