I see all the trouble a lot of people go to in the effort to get good cordless tools, but I'm here to tell you that the best cordless system is anything with a Honda four stroke on it. I have a Ryobi power washer and a Husqvarna weedwhacker, both with Honda four strokes, and they are the best cordless systems you can get. Easy to start, quiet, no smoke, low maintenance, easy and fast to "re-charge". We just moved to a larger place where I won't be able to use all of the corded outdoor power tools I have, and I will replace them all with Hondas. And I'm a MOPAR guy.
