Propane?

Just got to use a propane ice auger, and man I am impressed with how it works. So my question is does anyone use propane string trimmers and what do you think about them? Not sure who makes them but I remember seeing them.

A company called Lehr is making them but, they are still homeowner grade and didnt have the power for commercial use. Not quite there yet. They are heavy too.

Same with the auger, its got some weight to it. And its a limited use item compared to our maintenance equipment.

There are some companies that can convert them, but keep in mind they have to be a true 4 stroke engine. They are heavier and just hard to beat a good 'ol 2 stroke engine. There are some hybrid units out there, but they still need the lubrication from the 2 stroke mix.
