Re: Propane Powered Line Trimmers?
I like the idea, however the ones that I have seen (not Craftsman ) run on the disposable bottles of propane, not refillable tanks which IMHO completely negates any benefits of using propane over mixed gas. What good is "saving the environment" using a cleaner burning gas, when you are also filling the landfill with the tanks? You could probably convert it to run on a backpack bottle of propane, but you'll nearly double the cost of the tool when factoring the backpack rack and 5 pound bottle. The saving grace is that the 5 pound bottle will be refillable. I would also question just how long those small bottles will last, my suspicion, not much longer than a normal tank of mixed gas, which means this will be a very expensive machine to run. Other than these two issues, it should have just as much power and ability as a normal mixed gas machine of comparable size.
Final thought, you mentioned running an edger on it. Make sure that it has all the attachments you want, or can be fitted with what you want.
