Hi Everyone! So... long story, short - I inherited my family business last year after the passing of my parents. They started the business when they were older than I am now, so I keep telling myself that I can do this! Ha. Anyway, we also have a garden center/nursery and I've noticed the 'organic' trend has picked up quite a bit. I know most places advertise as being organic, but that it mostly means 'uses as little chemicals as possible, bla bla bla. Different story for a different time. But it leads up to my question. Since people seem to either want to save the Earth or at least are thinking about lowering their carbon footprint.... Have any of you used electric powered equipment? Battery, obviously. I bought a chainsaw, thinking it would be stupid and a waste of money, but it was on sale so I figured now is as good a time as any. All I can say is, wow! I was proven wrong. It cuts pretty damn well. So I got excited and decided, maybe I will buy a battery powered rototiller. Huge mistake. That thing sucks. Now I am torn. I keep seeing these ads for an electric zero turn mower. I just don't see how that could work, unless you're cutting city-size lots. I have a few small lawns on the islands, and I am considering a battery powered push mower because the islands are full of people that do nothing but complain about noise. I figured the battery would be much quieter. But I don't want another dud like the rototiller. So I wanted to know if any of you have used a battery powered mower? Also - I am thinking of buying a hedge trimmer. I see ads for battery ones and they are multi-tool, so you can switch them out. They'd pretty much just be used in the small towns, with tiny yards that appreciate less noise. Any thoughts? Thanks!
