I would like to see it operate in about a foot of snow before I would consider buying one of those battery drill..
I do have a 18 volt weed whacker, and I am surprised by how much energy that is stored in that battery, same thing with my lithium ion powered drill.

wonder why you see so many battery operated tools being giving away on cl all the time with no batteries
nobody wants to buy the batteries over and over and over again

and you were saying how bad the triggers were on the toros

throw away machine

batteries are the biggest expense, and a snowblower(and lawnmowers) will drive them hard, way harder than a drill or weed wacker.

life of the batteries will be short lived because of this and their length of runtime will also diminish over time.
a good quality verified battery pack, not some cloned/ripoff/rebadged battery pack, will cost mucho dinara

It will be interesting to see how these do. Many thought that the electric car was never coming (back). But they are now here to stay for good. I think since so many people (not most of this forum members) don't like the upkeep of gas powered outdoor equipment, these will gain some sales. Now this particular unit may be cheaply made, but they will sell some.

people might be buying the electric cars but those batteries have maybe a lifespan of about ten years, depending on how it was driven.
cost of a tesla pack is sbout 10k in u.s. funds for pack alone, not installed in and its part of the frame so not an easy diy job.

gas will be king for sometime still until they can get hydrogen cost effective. batteries alone will never be the future no matter what elon has to say.

they have a relative short life span, degrade over time, not as green as they profess to be, take too long to fully get charged, have a relative short travel distance
