    I really like Ryobi stuff. I have an electric weed wacker and a 40v lithium lawnmower from them and never have had any issues

    I hated my gas whipper snipper. Just never ran well, was a 2stroke, hated mixing gas. Wasn't a cheap model either.

    We just got a Ryobi whipper snipper (electric) - runs great.

    And then confused the fuck out of our neighbors by calling it a whipper snipper, which is a term they'd never heard before. LOL

    I got the “ryobi one” and it’s awesome. I love all my electric stuff, I’m mildly annoyed I have to keep gas around only for my snowblower

    I got the dewalt battery powered whipper snipper and it is glorious.
    I was originally looking at replacing my gas one with a nice honda one, but if it is just home use do not go gas.

    Stay away from Black and Decker ones. I have a 20V B&D and the batteries suck. I live in the city and have a small yard, I cut the lawn and usually run through both batteries in the whipper snipper before finishing the areas I need it for. Takes hours to charge the batteries too

    atta boy!
    You will love it. After I got mine, my two coworkers got the same set up. We all love it.
    I ended up buying a few of the larger 5AH batteries for it

    I just bought the DeWalt circular saw a month ago and it came with a 5ah battery :cool: I have three chargers, a 5ah, 4ah and three 2ah batteries so I have a pretty good setup. I can basically always have a fresh battery charged. Got the day off today so I'm gonna do some whipper snipping :victory:

    I bought three of these after catching 40 pike with one in a single day last month. God damned Pike Crack(TM). Had to order them from the manufacturer/Canadian distributor.

    The one I used got pretty beat up, and I want backups. :)

    Yes. Spent a couple hours with it, it's great. Need to get it tuned, taking it in tomorrow after work for that. Comes factory set at 26inch, 60lb draw. Just using that I was on target at 20 yards. Need to get it set to 28.5inch and keep it at 60. And I need to get the peep site installed. I'm not tackling that!

    Lume Cube light for video conferences - I'm WFH now until at least January, switched up where I've been sitting, and need to stop looking like I'm video conferencing from a cave.
