Over the years the homeowner has ended up with different pieces of lawn and garden equipment. Each one requiring different combinations of gas or gas and oil. This has made it difficult to keep up with managing the different equipment, keeping up with the requirements of the different equipment, so he has ended up using the wrong combination with the wrong equipment and ruined it. He had heard about battery operated equipment and was excited about that option but was concerned they wouldn't have enough power for the needed applications at his home. So he was thrilled when he came across the Oregon product and found out they are really powerful, more powerful than he had expected and light weight and very quiet. Now he doesn't have the challenge of trying to manage different containers of gas, or gas and oil, so it's been a great addition to their lawn and garden activities. So much so that they've now expanded and have a trimmer, a blower and a battery operated chain saw. Oregon power tools.
