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.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
