This is why when last year I needed a new strimmer and a chainsaw, I bought petrol / gas powered ones.

Batteries are a PITA: they lose charge when it's cold (so they are flat when you want to use 'em), they don't last well, and replacements are expensive.

Hmm ... maybe it's not just the lack of a suitable charging infrastructure that keeps me driving a diesel car ... Big Grin | :-D
