No, but the power drawn, battery capacity, and cold weather rating make my conclusion a simple matter of physics that no marketing puke can override . . . . Note the weasely "up to 30 minutes" . . . IE sitting still moving zero snow. 6/10 of a second fulfills thier weasely adver-spew . . . .

Not to mention that lithium-ion batteries have a decent yet limited number of cycles (typically 300 to 500, but less with heavy loading or rapid charging) which is likely not considered in thier claims.
