I hate using string trimmers of any kind, but there are two things I hate worse: maintaining crappy little two-cycles and dragging around 100′ of extension cord. And that’s assuming I don’t accidentally cut the cord because — as I mentioned — I hate using string trimmers.
Have any of you tried the new cordless models, like this one from Black & Decker? Besides the fact that it’s cordless, it looks pretty much like other string trimmers. Does the battery actually run long enough to make it worthwhile, and is it any lighter than a gas model? Let us know in comments.
