  1. Head lights

    No dont want to over do the electrical system. I currently use chem lights/ lightsticks on the rear. When i put up for winter i will disconnect the lights from the battery.
  2. Head lights

    Just put some headlights on my scag so i can cut in the dark. I used rough country's twin 6" light bars. Each bar is 6 400 lumen leds. Total out put is 4800 lumens. 12 volt system wired directly to the battery with an in fuse. I had to make brackets because the ones that came with would not work. All told it took me about an hour or so to install.

  10. Dewalt Landscaping machines

    I will post on here if I try another cordless. But it won't be for some time. Otherstwhile on here have done used and love the 20v. I am very biased toward gas.
  11. DeWalt 40v String Trimmer

    A little background here. I cut about 35ish lawns a week. So I have some idea of what works and doesn't work with ope. All options are good options based on your needs. I do not know any lawn contractors in my area using cordless. The investment to go to cordless with the extra batteries, car charger is just too high. With the unknown if it will even work for me. I know gas and it works for me. As far as run As far as if cordless will equal gas in terms of power and run time I'd like to think they will equal at some point. It may not even take 10 years. What has not been said is the torque generated by the cordless. In my option they are lacking.
  12. DeWalt 40v String Trimmer

    Ricky, i know about yhe dewalt 20v car charger. It would work. But the issuse for me is that the 20v just does not work for me. Nor does any cordless ope at this point in time. Until someone can replacate the run time of a gas engine ill stick with gas
  13. DeWalt 40v String Trimmer

    The main reason I tried the dewalt vs other cordless is because I have a bunch of 20v batteries. Farmer Joe... the biggest issue I have with cordless open is the run time. Here is what I mean... I'm out cutting 10-14 lawns after work on Thursday nite. All day Friday I cut about 15-20 more and still 3 more on Saturday. With gas I know I have it. But with the battery I don't know when it's going to die, and I can't recharge in the truck. Most open only come with one battery, which I would need at least 3. At that point it's just easier to use gas. Each product has there place in the market. All are good to some extent. Maybe one day when the redmax die I'll venture more intof cordless open. But today I stay with gas.
  14. DeWalt 40v String Trimmer

    I tried out the 20volt. Was not impressed. The trimmers I use are both redmax bcz2660s. I know gas vs battery no comparison. I wanted to try it for comparison purposes, and if it was decent I would use it as a back up. Here is what I found... line was way to thin for me (.080). I run .095 Kevlar reinforced. Felt out of balance, and way too lite. As others have said it bogged in longer, thicker grass. Because it was so light I could not get a consistent height on the grass. Had to go back over it with my redmax. Overall not a bad producthing but just not for me at this time. It and the other ope that dewalt makes do have there place. I may try again in the future, but for now itso the beast called redmax that I will use.
