Our purchasing agent is looking for one, price really isn't an issue.
Yes, Home Depot has a Ryobi that uses their 18 volt battery for it's electric start. They call it Touch Start. Here's a link to the Ryobi site: http://www.ryobitools.com/featured/
we saw them, and i think that she's gonna check them out. thanks
Please, don't buy one for commercial use. They just aren't "it". (not conmmercial grade)
"Back in the day" (1997 or thereabouts), Tanaka had 2 units that were battery start with a rope backup.
$500 for the homeowner version and $800 for the commercial version. None of those models are in the lineup now. If I remember correctly, they had an issue with the battery life/price of battery.
not to hijack the thread... i would pass on the trimmer with electric start due to the added weight, but how great would that be to have on a backpack blower!!!
I dont get it? You said you wanted an electric start gas powered trimmer, not a battery powered unit right?
that is correct, and we are still looking. battery powered sucks
What's the big deal about pulling a rope?
I'm not trying to be a wisea$$, I'm just curious.
If the Mrs. is going to be using it some it might be a very big deal indeed.
i have a craftsman 4 cycle that i got a few years back that works well. Our purchasing agent is about 45-50 years old and pulling the rope is a little hard for her. She is willing to spend the $$ for one.
