    The one SEARS sells has the cut line system while the one sold by Ace Hardware has a bump feed head. I prefer the bump feed style myself. I know some folks don't like them, but I've never had a...

    Re: Propane powered trimmer

    They look interesting. I'd prefer to try one before making a purchase, but that's not likely to happen.

    It's a four stroke, so the power to weight ratio is not going to be as good as a two stroke...

    Well, my saw is a few years old, maybe 15-18? Perhaps they no longer make such a bar?

    It's for my lovely wife. I didn't want her to have to do anything if the power went out. Of course the fact that I don't have to do anything is a bonus!
