Subject: RE: BS: Weapons of mass weed destruction
I'd not heard of greenworks tools, Bill.

I have a couple of Ryobi cordless drills (hammer and drill/driver) that have met my own occasional diy needs for a few years.

Pip used to use a mains electric mower for the strip of grass I mentioned earlier and, yep, a 30m extension plus whatever cable the mower had did look to me a bit of a bind. We have a petrol mower available now.

Having got belted in the face by a big (but properly guarded - I only got a bloody nose) angle grinder, I'm scared of tools that can kick back in that way so that puts me off a chainsaw (OK you can wear protective clothing, anything not ancient will have a break but I still have visions of one clobbering me). Still, I'd be interested to know how yours worked out. Does it do as well as mains or petrol one that I'd guess you had before going cordless?
