Gas tools are almost universally the most powerful type of home, lawn and garden devices. Mowers, snow throwers and blowers and other types of brushes, cutters and trimmers will take care of your property with more power than an electric tool and just as much portability as a cordless tool.
The main downside to gas tools involves the price of gas and the impact on the environment. Neither electric nor cordless tools emit the exhaust of a gas tool.
There are propane-powered tools in this category that run cleaner than standard gas tools. Propane tools are gaining traction in the industry, and can currently be found in some string trimmers and riding mowers.
When using any gas-powered tool, make a point to use up all the gas at the end of the season. If you leave gas in the tank over the winter, the ethanol in the gas can wear down seals and gaskets inside the tool. To keep your tools running as smoothly and for as long as possible, empty the tank prior to long periods of rest.
