You know I might take these propane power companies serious if they didnt lead their adds with pandering to the environmental cultist.

If they had a attachment for buffing floors those weed eaters might have a practical use.

Hmmm ... 14.4 lbs for a 25cc tool.

I was wondering how they mix fuel/oil but see it's a 4-stroke with separate oil.

2h of run time is probably overrated ... and how do you refill?

Those little camping propane cans maybe?

Yes it is the small propane cylinder attached where the gas tank would be. I haven't formed an opinion on them, just sharing the link. I am perfectly happy using my 2 smokers with a low smoke, low odor, clean burning oil at 100:1.

Overweight and weak. What a combo!

14.4 lbs is dry weight. Add another 2lbs or so for the fuel container. That's pushing close to 17lbs. I'll pass on it.

Hey I just saw one at Menards and actually picked it up. It was heavy and it came with a strap already attached. No thanks. My back will be on fire. Plus how long does the fuel last and do you gotta stock up on camping propane canisters.

I will warn you against the Lehr propane trimmer. It is absolute JUNK! Shoddy parts, no power, and constant problems. Its a nice idea, but it was not executed very well.
