    Cordless string trimmers

    Yep. Shared battery use is a good idea. I have a whole set of Craftsman battery powered tools. After my son and son-in-law helped me clean up the mess in my garage so a new water heater could be installed,
    I can’t find the chargers. Thought I’d just buy one more charger. Went to Lowes who carries Craftsman brand now. The batteries have been physically changed and not able to accept the batteries I have. Surprise! Not a pleasant one, as I have several batteries.

    when it was on sale, with the carbon fiber shaft it's nice and light, and also well balanced.

    My gas cub cadet was giving me fits and needed to get some stuff done....Overall I like the EGO better then the cc, though maybe over the winter I'll get the cc up and running right

    This year I bought a 40V Greenworks self-propelled mower and then a few weeks later bought the Greenworks 40V combo string trimmer and blower. I have a smaller yard now than I had before and electric power just seemed like a better way to go this time around. Mower will easily do 1/2 of my yard on one charge which works for me as, at my age, 1/2 of my yard is enough without a rest break. String trimmer and blower are both quite useful and even though the battery that came with them is 1/2 the amperage of the mower one, I have never run out of power using them. Batteries are interchangeable, too, so I can use the mower battery to power the blower or trimmer and use the trimmer battery to power the mower (although it runs out of power MUCH faster than the one that came with the mower).

    No 2-cycle oil mixed with gasoline. No messy spills in my garage. No carburetor to keep clean and adjusted or sparks plug to change. I just pop in a charged battery and away I go! Yep.......I much prefer electric. If I had a large yard, I might not be so pleased but what I have works great for me.

I know some areas don't have Menards, but whatever your local hardware store is there is probably a house brand like dewalt, ryobi, Milwaukee, or even black and decker. All of these brands have options in string trimmers, and yard maintenance tools now. So if you have any of those kind of cordless tools check them out because you might have a shared battery capability already. My dad is a dewalt man and he just got the cordless 20v chainsaw and blower. They both work very well with the bigger 5.0 ah batteries. The bigger capacity battery the better off you'll be whatever you choose.

    ...and stuff from Menards is available on-line...

    I'll stick with gas powered. Never goes weak due to charge, I use the pre-mixed fuel simply to save time and mess of mixing. A quick pull of the handle and I'm off and going. Too make things even better I have the edger attachment for the weed eater. It take all of 3 minutes to go from weed eater to edger.

    Batteries are too often a short term solution to a long term job. They have there place in my tool locker, but mostly for drill, impact, and quick easy access to a saw.

    Howdy!

    We just returned from six month RV trip. Drug out the weed eater and of course it wouldn’t start. I went straight Owes and purchased a Kobalt 80 volt battery power we’d eater. I’m impressed will never. Back to a gas operated one.

    I got a Ryobi for a gift, and my wife used it until the battery gave up. The cost of a new battery didn't justify the amount of use it got, so it sits in the storeroom gathering dust. My Echo string trimmers have been going strong for years, and I don't have to worry about replacing (discontinued) batteries.
