It lasted long enough to cut two lawns of @1/4 acre in total then started the car afterwards.


I like his style Nasher

Just thought I'd throw in my tuppence to this thread. I used to run a Honda petrol mower but decided to make a move to battery garden tools and started with a Stihl mower with the intention of changing my strimmer and hedgecutter in due course. Whilst the Stihl is convenient and seems to last quite well on a charge (I bought the 2 battery deal) it doesn't quite match a petrol mower. I suspect the blade speed is slower which results in a less even cut and also it's not as good at sucking up the debris compared to petrol. Easy to use though and even my wife's taken it for a spin.
