Quick note on rechargeable battery packs: Batterys Plus in our area will change out the battery internal to the battery pack.  Less cost than new replacement cost.

I looked at that Ryobi 40 volt chainsaw today and came home without it.  I am still gonna get that MS170 that is on special for $159 when they come in to the dealer.

Cordless stuff is handy,I have some myself .Did you notice though every 4-5 years they change the battery voltages and styles .You don't suppose they are trying to sell new models or something when the only place you can find replacements is fleabay .Sneaky rascals .

Each manufacture seems to have settled on a design, and they are sticking with it. I think people are tired of having to switch all the time.

Our PE550 edger threw a rod this week.  It is MD'd so I am finally out of the "Weed Eater" business. 
Wrong.  It was not engine trouble at all.  The recoil starting mechanism was the problem.  I have a starter pulley kit, a start cam, and two start dogs ordered.  $25 and I should be back into business when they get here....hopefully.   ;D

Bought my Bride a Black & Decker weed wackier with 20 volt lithium batteries. Very satisfied with it. The cheap off brand gas one's weren't to reliable. I've heard Sthil makes good gas ones,but the B&D is nice & light for her.

The biggest problem with gasoline weed wackers, hedge trimmers and perhaps blowers is they sit unused for 8-9 months out of the year .Then they don't want to start .

Most of my afore mentioned stuff was free simply because they would not start .Usually just a rebuild of the carb is all they need .

I'm not an advocate of pre mixed fuels with stabilizers for long term storage .I would however suggest it for folks who are less incllned to tinker with stuff like I do. Just fill like half a tank at the end of the season, run it a little and put it on the self for the winter .
