Propane has the ability to power many things, but have you ever heard of a propane powered string trimmer? If you’ve thought about this option, fill up on propane in Brighton before going home to work on your yard. There are so many tools you can use with propane!
The Bottom Line
A cordless, eco-friendly, propane alternative to gas weedeaters. Lehr’s eco-friendly trimmer is an exciting green-living option for pros and for homeowners with challenging trimming requirements. Do you have to range far and wide on your property to get all your grass trimming done? Does your weedeater need to be able to handle tall grass and/or tough weeds? This weedeater is up to the task, providing all the power of quality gas models for a comparable price.
- Lehr eco-friendly weedeater received EPA’s 2009 Clean Air Excellence Award
- Carburetor doesn’t gum up, as with gas, meaning fewer engine problems
- No worry about using right gas/oil mix for a propane weedeater
- Power and price not sacrificed in the name of being “eco-friendly”
- Weedeater said to run 2-3 hours on one tank of propane
- Potential idling problems with this weedeater could stump average homeowners
- Many would find it too heavy (16 lbs., fueled) to use for extended periods, even with shoulder strap
- Propane tank empty? How far will you have to drive to buy another?
- Difficult to recycle propane tanks.
- My 3 1/2-star rating is given with the needs of homeowners in mind.
- But the rating would be 4 1/2 stars if geared to pros.
- Depending on where you live (and your shopping habits), it might be a hassle to replace propane tanks….
- I have to fight a lot of traffic to get to my Home Depot, the closest store where 16.4-oz propane tanks are sold….
- And refilling these propane tanks is illegal in some areas, in case you’re contemplating that workaround.
- This weedeater has a 17-inch cutting swath.
- Weedeater’s line feed type: bump feed.
- The propane tank has a “Green Key” that supposedly makes it recyclable (and eco-friendly). But when I placed the empty tank in a metal-recycling receptacle, my town refused to take it. So did Home Depot, which sells the 16.4-oz propane tanks.
