    It would be cool to customize them. Anyone have some ideas or pics of what you've done to your own mowers?

    The man knows what he likes.

    Can't convince you to try just one piece of equipment?

    I bought a stihl battery power blower for my wife to use in her gardening. I love tax deductible Christmas presents.
    We'll see how it works. She always struggled starting any of my gas blowers. And like I told her, it'll make a heck of good hair dryer !

    Hello to all. Figured I'd chime in on this thread. I'm using all battery operated tools. My lineup is a 80v 21" mower,Ego weed eater,Ego hedge trimmer, Ego blower (530CFM) and the Ego powerhead with edger and chainsaw attachment.
    I do a commercial property and some residential homes as well. For the upcoming season I'm looking for a wide area mower to speed up production.

    Check out meangreenproducts.com for their most affordable 33" walk behind. They are the leaders in large lithium ion mowers. They are pricey but may be worth your investment. Great to see you on board!

    I have been more than satisfied with makita's 18 x2 lineup. I picked up their top string trimmer, which included a dual charger and two 5ah batteries. They last a long time and the quality is amazing. I previously had the ryobi 40 attachment with string trimmer and edger, I also have their jet blower, makita is way ahead in comparison. I just wish they release an edger, I'd buy in a heartbeat

    I like the new Makita chainsaw. Ryobi's 38" riding mower is the only mower that has my attention for now. I'm waiting to see what Ego is going to release for 2018 before making a purchase. They have some game changers coming I'm hearing.

    I know dano-that is big scratch. Can't wait for the prices to drop-the big rub are the batteries. Hey-whats the MPH and CFM on blower?
