I am slowly trading in my gas powered tools and replacing them with battery operated. I hate to say it but I like the ease of use with the battery powered tools and they do as good or better of a job than the gas models they replaced. I am replacing my mower next but It's a Honda so it may be a few years. My chainsaws are still two strokes and i probably won't replace them at all. No trees to cut around here.
I have been thinking of going to battery powered on the weed eater. My wife would probably do the trimming if I did. I don’t even get to mow anymore since the 8 year old started push mowing.
