    I have stored a small bundle of 18 foot long 8/4 mahogany boards for a long time. Some of them are 20 inches wide. Bout time I did something with them 
    On a PC (pre-COVID) camping trip, a friend showed up with firewood he had cleaned out of his recently deceased fathers garage. All neatly stacked and he’d cut them into 2 foot lengths to fit in his car for the trip back to his own home. All 8/4 air-dried walnut. I did snag some, but the ribbing was worth the expensive coals to cook over. Now that I think about it, we were **** to him....

    I think tthere may be some confusion about the type of hard wood that you are looking for, NOLA. Did you first try Craigslist?

    Happy to help. Researched for years and finally found the setup that I wanted. I ended up with a FlightScope Mevo + as my launch monitor but know more than I possibly should about all this

    My buddy had one of those. With even a speck of dew on the grass it would bog down and not cut. He would only get about 25min of actual cutting time too if his grass was taller than about 2". But that was a few years ago. Hopefully they have improved the performance

    I have a friend that has two and swears by them. I just bought one based on that but I haven’t had it long.  Seems better than any other electric I’ve had before.
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    I have a Husqvarna battery leaf blower and it's very good, but it does drain the battery quickly, so you need a good size battery.

    I have the Dewalt one, it meets my needs and I have a bunch of Dewalt batteries already.  It replaced a 80V blower whose battery died and they no longer make replacements.  The 80V was much more powerful, the dewalt has much better modulation.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    I started with the weedeater- love it.
    This summer the mower- Neighbor has one swears by it
    Next summer the blower, I will keep my electric for the Vacuum function

    SWMBO needs some time to forget the tools in between.

    I have one.  I don't use it for leaves but for cleaning off the patio, driveway and sidewalk after mowing.  It is the best battery power tool I have ever used.  It is powerful and the battery lasts a long time between charges.  It has made me consider replacing my gas mower and weedeater with Ego when it is time.

    I have the ego blower and string trimmers.  They are excellent products.  The only reason I didn't get the mower was price.  I found a deal for a Greenworks mower with 2 batteries for $199 (new) on woot.  SWMBO is skeerd of the string trimmer because it's "too powerful".  I'm like, it has a speed control in the trigger, derp.

    A thinner cord might make her feel more comfortable using it.

    Yeah, I'll try that.  In the interim she won't let me get rid of a wimpy Black and Decker string trimmer (20v LiION) that she uses when she does the lawn.

    The ego stuff ain't cheap, but I'm convinced they have the best battery system out there.

    The blower has a turbo button that makes it go into insane crazy-balls mode.  It will chew the battery up in about 12 minutes if you keep it on that.  But not necessary, although it takes some thought to not just run it like that all the time.  I would put money on it moving more air than my Echo gas blower.

    Just be happy that she DOES the lawn. My wife does lots that I don’t do, but yard work is not something she would touch with a ten foot pole!
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 37,947
    Actually she likes to do that lawn, and we split the job with our neighbor, but she's been so burnt out from this Covid sh*tshow that I've been doing it so far this year.

    ...and the neighbor just got his shoulder replaced yesterday so he won't be doing it for the next month or more.

    I have the ryobi version because it shares a battery with my hedge trimmer I was gifted a couple of years back.  I used the battery one for leaves under bushes and for patio/driveway cleaning after mowing.  I had plug in electric before and the cord was a hassle.

    I can't/won't comment on this particular model, but the battery powered Worx mower I have is remarkably light weight.

    I read this because I hate I hate having the tons of unread posts showing up on the main screen, but this definitely makes me think that one of the best things I did here was make sure I had somebody to deal with the lawn.
