Propane string trimmer

6 posts in this topic

I see that Sears has a trimmer that runs on 1 lb. propane tanks. Does that make Algore and the anti-leaf blower people happy?

I read about it a month or two ago and thought it was a pretty good idea. I seem to always have extra propane cannisters sitting around, seems pretty darn convenient!!

Anybody used it or heard anything more about it?

Sure would love to have a gas auger run off propane tanks. No spilled fuel again...ever! No gummed up carbs... I don't care about Al Gore but I do see benefits to the design if it works like they say.

Interesting....I use a battery operated one now though.

It has a 2 hour run time on one canister....seems like a good amount of time. More reliable they say? How do they lube internal components....still must be oil in there somehow??

I saw one the other day at my local small engine shop. It is a 4 stoke and has oil in it. it runs off the 1lb canisters and you can refill them off a bigger tank 20lb etc... with a fitting. It is very quiet and absoulutly no smoke.
