    Dumb question I know, but does anyone use electric lawn tools to do accounts ? I am thinking of starting up a little service and wondered what the opinions and response would be to electric tools. How would home owners react?

    i dont think people really want you hooking up a extension cord and using their electricity, it is much slower, and they are underpowered for many of the jobs you will need them for. just invest in a nice commercial set. good luck to you.

    Do not even waste time with electric tools.

    If it is all you have and need to use them until you upgrade, there shouldn't be a problem. We all got to start somewhere. Good luck.

    Depends on the homeowner I think. Active pro-environment homeowners I am sure would welcome it.

    I don't use corded ones, however I do use rechargerable ones for small residents where I do not wish to distrub the client or neighborhood.
