I almost pulled the trigger on this when it was $200 at my local Rona... Tempting.

I bought the trimmer 3 plus years ago when first introduced. Still works great. No regrets. Keep the vents clear on the trimmer head after each use and you’ll be fine. Otherwise heard it can overheat and burn the motor.

Yes a cheep gas trimmer is $99 to $150.
I had 2 gas trimmers Stihl and a Home lite. Both worked well for 20+ years.
Since then both stopped working. Parts are too expensive for these old machines and it may not fix the issue.

I bought a 20v Dewalt. Works very well and for what i do has the same power to do the work as a gas. I have a 1/4a lot. I trim the driveway,fence line, around trees etc. On a 4amp battery i be lucky to use only 1 bar of battery. E.G 70% charge left.

For the average house the Dewalt is more than enough. I will stick with electric now.

If i had a lot of tall grass (fields or a farm perhaps) then i would a buy gas unit again.

Is the electric the same weight as a gas powered, or lighter? Is the balance just as good?

The battery will not last 20 years, as your gas trimmer did through. Replacement batteries will be at least $100 bucks I'm guessing?
