cordless yard tools
I am looking for cordless yard tools. I've found the Ryobi and Black&Decker series online. I am hoping for some feedback from those who have used the tools before I invest in either of the series. Here's my list of questions/concerns - I'm sure I will come up with more.
Ryobi vs Black &Decker?
voltage differences - there are several choices - 18v is most common with most available tools. Also available are 20v, 24v, 36v, and 40v. Do I need the bigger battery if the resulting amperage is the same?
are these tools powerful enough for the work I need to do?
pole saw - needs to cut up to 3" diameter (if possible)
trimmer - needs to whack big weeds, not just grass
blower - needs to move leaves off grass, not just hard
cultivator - would be used in clay soil - mostly partially
prepared flowerbeds that need cleaned up and soil
Any comments and info will be welcomed. TIA
