So the $50K average cost of an EV is considered something a low-income qualifier would purchase?
And the average cost of a home in Martha's Vineyard is $2.3M ?

Yeah, they need help purchasing a EV charging station like I need to marry a 20 year old woman......makes no sense. Unless he's keeping those promises if they contribute to "the big guy's" re-election campaign.

Brandon is no better than a common thief...and I detest thieves. :angry:

It seems like the Demo's and the MSM push on B.S. visions of the future,
did not count on the "love" ;) of EVs and driverless vehicles.

No, this isn't about EV's but.....if you can't use a gas-powerd mower, leaf blower or trimmer and you're standing in the middle of a 2 acre lot, would you NOT have to go electric? Or battery powered?

I’ve basically switched to exclusively using battery powered chainsaws. Quiet enough to not worry about hearing protection and it’s ready as soon as I pick it up, no yanking on the cord and waiting for it to warm up enough to be useable. Most of the time it’s the 14” 60v Dewalt top handle since I got it a few months ago. A bit overpriced for the casual homeowner but it’s a beast. I don’t use it for my profession but I do cut a fair amount of wood to heat with and generally two 3ah 60v batteries will last longer than I feel like cutting in one session, sometimes three. 100% in no uncertain terms do I endorse telling someone they CAN’T use gas but I just wanted throw out there that battery operated yard tools have made significant progress in the last few years.

I've not touched my gas powered weedeater since getting the battery version, and I'm planning on adding a battery powered hedge trimmer and leaf blower this year. For the chainsaw, I'd like a battery one most of the time, but I occasionally have to cut ~12 inch (sometimes bigger) juniper, and I can't imagine a battery holding out for much of that. It's very hard wood, and goes through chains pretty fast. Pine and fir feels like balsa in comparison. I don't use the chainsaw enough to justify having two of them, so for now I'll stick with having to spend the first half hour or so just to get the darned thing started. I finally learned that using only no-ethanol gas helps a lot with the getting it to run dance.

Non-ethanol is a must for any small engine in my book. I would say at least 75% of what I cut around here is Osage Orange (hedge) it’s pretty tough and burns extremely hot but sparks a lot. It essentially will not rot and was used for fence posts quite often if you could find a straight piece long enough

I nearly died from the fumes! :) never again
Funny you mention that, I walked into my folks garage and was bowled over by the stench from all the various oils and fuels, never even noticed while living there.

of other note the Hydrogen side of things looks interesting, will be interesting to see how the first the first few fires go.
