Should I get gas or electric (cordless) lawn tools?
specifcally, i need a hedge trimmer and a string trimmer. electric would be nice because there's less maintenance involved. however, after reading a lot of the reviews, battery life is a concern. i have a decent size yard (~9600 sq ft). so there's not a ton of work to be done, but enough to make me lean towards gas powered.
do electric ones usually come with 2 batteries? or do you have to buy the spare and the cost of the spare makes you wonder why you didn't just buy 2 of the tool to start with.
who's got recommendations based on personal experience?
