Is anyone in here into lithium ion outdoor power equipment?
In the 3 years since I last posted here I have sold all my Lawnboys and have gone green in different way!
I started Eco Cuts, an eco-friendly lawn care service. I pull all my equipment on a 6 foot cargo trailer with a bicycle. All my equipment is lithium ion, except for my Toro SR4 that has only ever run on propane the last 2-3 years! The conversion kit is made by AltFuel LLC.
I have 2 lithium ion mowers, an EGO 56 volt 20 inch, and I just bought an Echo 58 volt 21 inch mower that is the best thing since sliced bread! I also just bought an Echo 58 volt trimmer and I LOVE it! I also have had a Stihl FSA 85 since I started. Other equipment includes 2 Core "Power Lok" (split boom) power heads with a trimmer,hedge trimmer, and 2 blower attachments. I use an EGO 56 volt blower for the most part though.
I'm just wondering if anyone else is into this stuff, as I think it's the future of OPE. Plus I'm looking for forums to talk about this stuff, as well as dispell any myths and half truths about MODERN battery OPE.
