I have many memories of attempting to start my weedwacker as a child, only to give up and ask my dad to start it for me, so I could trim the yard. Now I no longer have to worry about the impossible-to-start gas weed wacker, as I use the Ryobi One+. The electric start on this machine makes it easy to start. This is the perfect electric yard trimmer, as it can never really run out of power. Without a cord, the lithium-ion battery gets me plenty of juice to trim the boundaries of my landscape, but just in case, I can always plug the trimmer in for unlimited power. For extra clean lines, the trimmer converts to an edger for the perfectionists among us. At just under 7 pounds, the trimmer is extremely portable and comfortable, with a telescoping shaft for comfort adjustments.
