    I can't speak for all makes, but two Winters ago I bought an EGO brand battery powered snow blower. Its power is equal to a gas blower. It uses two rechargeable batteries (each guaranteed for 3 years) that cost $300 each. That's the thing to consider.

    That's my experience, too. The first lawnmower I had with a B&S engine lasted almost 14 years.

    Batteries ain't cheap. I'm not saying this is a good mower or the solution here, but I did see an interesting approach from Makita, they sell a mower that takes a pair of 18v batteries (at same time) you'd use in power tools - so already own if you use Makita

    Don't know if Milwaukee or anyone else do anything similar, maybe an option if the lawn is small?

    Edit: heart attack putting away the mower, that was Squid, right? Did anyone hear from him after that? he was a good guy

    So check this out, Covid has negatively impacted the supply chain and many items are on backorder or have no fixed date when they will be back in stock, lol.

    This dam Covid has messed up many,many things.

    As far as the mower goes (self propelled if you want it to be, btw), I like the lighter weight, less noise, no maintenance, and non-polluting aspects of it. My Honda mower works well, but it's basically just taking up space in the garage now.

    This is hilarious, you must live in AZ or somewhere like that. We had a storm this year that delivered 36 inches in 20 hours. My neighbor's fancy new blower failed so I went out and banged tools on my ancient 2nd hand TORO for an hour, got her going without any backfires and eased it out and it chewed through the heavy wet snow like a dog on a bone. Had to go slow but the volume and weight of snow it was throwing was something else.

    I like the idea of an electric string trimmer but if you you use an electric chainsaw you have to shave the beard.

    Come on out of the stone age, brah. It's only an 18" bar, so I wouldn't use it if I were a professional lumberjack. But if you're only cutting 24" and under thick trees it's all you really need.

    Tell this young feller to shave his beard! I dare ya! (That's hardwood, btw.)

    I use a Worx corded electric chainsaw with a DeWalt power bank. My Stihl gathers dust, but I'd use it if I had to take a team of horses into the woods to cut true growers for telephone polls like I did in my twenties.

    I really considered an EGO electric lawnmower at the beginning of Summer, but my gas mower is just too good to let it sit idle.

    Exactly. At the lake, I have a Greenworks 60V push mower, one battery because I just use it for the front lawn and a Greenworks weedeater. Makes life so much easier.

    The other 40+ acres we mow with a Kohler 7000 Series Zero Turn 25hp 60-inch. That sucker is loud and I have to wear ear-plugs.

My suggestion is to get a Honda self propelled with a Honda engine. Those are as good as it gets for a gas powered homeowner model...

    Interesting that you brought this up ,as my buddy mentioned this . He said there designed to use a little oil ,so that your adding oil accordingly, this way it’s always fresh .
    I have to look into this further . Btw ,my friend is a legit retard ,and given me bad info on many occasions

    [QUOTE=IronCharles;1644035943]Come on out of the stone age, brah. It's only an 18" bar, so I wouldn't use it if I were a professional lumberjack. But if you're only cutting 24" and under thick trees it's all you really need.

    There was less than 2 minutes of sawing in a 6 minute video. Gonna stick with my gas/oil saw for the time being, if I switch to craft beer and iced coffee I might consider an electric saw.

    I feel like I was born with a chainsaw in my hands, I started using one at 11 or 12 years of age bucking up firewood, by 15 I was cutting pulp, have heated my home with wood in a very cold climate with wood being the only heat source for decades, not to mention the years I spent trap line that would have been very difficult without one, so you could say that I have burned a few tanks of fuel over the last 50 years.

    I only have one comment on Battery powered saws, bring them on, they are the cats ass. I won one in a fishing derby was a 16 inch that I knocked down to a 14 inch bar, it's my daily carry and use it mostly for clearing trails. I fuking love that thing and no mix to deal with and very reliable.

    The day is coming when internal combustion engines will be a thing of the past. Probably not in our lifetime, but at some point the ones still remaining will be museum pieces or in the hands of collectors. Think about how many horse drawn carriages are left today, and at one time they were ubiquitous. People at that time scoffed at the idea of internal combustion propulsion ever being a practical means of replacing horse power.
