Battery technology has changed tremendously in the last few years, and it isn’t just cordless tool companies that are taking advantage of this. True, some of the units I tested are put out by power tool giants like DeWalt and Makita, but longtime companies that have exclusively made yard care tools (traditionally called Outdoor Power Equipment) like Husqvarna and Echo are also carrying battery equipment now. I looked specifically at 36–58V units, and many of these products boasted “gas-like power”. These claims would have seemed outrageous 10 years ago, but not anymore. Keeping your property clean and beautiful has been made even easier with the selection of string trimmers available today.
