I am 2-stroke motor challenged - I have no issue fixing a V8 truck motor, but I had to replace the weed wacker with an electric trimmer b/c I am sick of trying to figure out why it would not put out full power when it would start.
That said, I have a nice Stihl 24" gas saw - last Halloween it was used for four days straight clearing my drive way and yard without an issue and since we did not get electricity for five days it was a good thing to have.
One concern in the electric vs gas - if you do a lot of cutting, like for a woodstove, wear chaps. If you are wearing chaps, you want gas powered. Electric does not bind when it hits chaps and will keep going - with obvious results.
