    Re: Stihl battery power

    LOL I can't believe the price they're asking for the Pellenc ripoff mower. Never thought I'd see a push mower more expensive than the Pellenc!

    Someone mentioned it has individual wheel height...

    Re: Stihl battery power

    Yes I've read the info available from Pellenc, as well as the info available from Stihl. They both clearly outline the lithium chemistry that is used - no assumptions there. I didn't say that Stihl...

    Yeah I'm not sure on the situation that cost $15k/year in fuel. Those were a few comments around the FB page, people happy to say they spent that much in fuel (vehicle, equipment, everything included...

    Re: Totally electric commercial contractor

    Good stuff - things in the Lithium OPE area are certainly shaking up recently. Crazy to think that now even a consumer product is beating handheld blowers from an established brand like Stihl.

    Re: Glyphosate

    Re: Stihl battery power

    If you guys are looking for true commercial gear, take a look at Pellenc. That is really all I can recommend now, they've had a MASSIVE price drop earlier in the year - although they still carry a...
