    This is the Kobalt setup that the folks that own the business where I work. I don't do the lawn work, one of the other employees does, and this equipment seems to work great and he has no complaints about it.
    String trimmer and leaf blower combo.

    I have a Ryobi and am completely satisfied with it. I mow about 3 1/2 acres with the tractor, and there's quite a bit of trim around the barn, house trees, etc. I have a 4AH 18V battery for it and one charge does the trim. The battery fits the rest of my Ryobi tools as well. And when Ryobi changes cosmetics of their tools, the batteries remain consistent.

    I bought this one back last spring : https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-40-v...ded/1000180459

    It’s more than enough power for me . Full charge i can trim all my front yard and most of the backyard before it needs charging . I was going to get the 80 watt but glad i only got the 40 watt . The only thing is it’s long to what I normally was use to . Gas trimmers vibrate for me too much , makes my arm numb . If you get an extra battery it helps . But i get about 30-40 mins of trim time . When it dies tho it’s dead !

    My wife has a stihl, she likes it.
    I can’t tell the difference between a weed and a flower so have been banned from the trimmer.

    I have a 35 year old stihl gas trimmer that works just fine. I even used it commercially for the first 5 years. This probably has over a 1000 hours on it. Corded? Never. Cordless maybe if the manufacturers quit messing with battery mounts and stick with one design.

    I also have the Black and Decker cordless with 18 volt batteries. I found a generic 18 volt on Amazon that far surpasses the battery life and power of the factory B & D 18 volt batteries. I like this one for ease of use and control.

    I also have an Echo P225 gas powered that came with the string trimmer attachment. Hard to control for me so I ended up scalping rather than trimming. I ended up buying an edger attachment and an aggressive trimmer attachment with a saw type blade for cutting small brush.

    Battery technology has improved a lot. I think the Kobalt tools look pretty good. Maybe check Harbor Freight - some of their stuff isn't bad.

    I remember mentioning to my neighbor that I didn’t know if a plant growing between our houses was a weed or a flower that my wife planted. He said if you cut it you’ll find out.
