how old are these? have you had to do any maintenance yet on any of these? have you noticed and degradation in battery performance?
you should move to california.......This all started off with me buying a used Greenworks Pro single stage snowblower to replace a failed SnowJoe corded unit. It came with one 2Ah battery and a rapid-charger and worked very well, but I added a second used 2Ah battery to extend the operating window. The snowblower runs more than 40 minutes on one battery and recharges in 30 minutes, so I'm good to go there. I've now added the other items shown below. Only my most recent purchase, the leaf blower, uses up one battery somewhat faster than it recharges, but I'm pretty much done after 45 minutes blowing leaves and need to take a little break anyway... I have watches on eBay and Craigslist, etc. for additional deals on batteries and other items. The batteries are available for $75 or less...

The blower and the batteries are from mid-2017. The other items are newer.how old are these?
I had to change the string in the trimmer. Easiest job ever. I'll probably have to sharpen the chains on the two saws soon. I've cut a lot of oak with them. This is one battery worth...have you had to do any maintenance yet on any of these?
Nope, both batteries still last 40-45 minutes on the blower (as of last spring). They last longer on the chain saw and less time on the leaf blower (as designed).have you noticed and degradation in battery performance?
I primarily use the Greenworks on the deck, where it will handle up to a foot easily. I have used it to do the entire property when there was only 4-6 inches. I have a Honda HSS1332AATD for the big stuff.I imagine that they will throw a small amount (2-6") of the powdery stuff pretty good.
Hopefully they are both in the same battery voltage family so she can use them in both machines. I think the year-round use of the batteries prolongs their life. Both of my batteries are over 4 years old now. It's important to recharge them as soon as you finish using them.My neighbor just got a SnoJoe battery blower ..... She already has had a battery operated mower for years now ....
We had a severe storm here last night and the power went out at about 10:30PM. The text message from Central Maine Power said they anticipated restoring power by 12:45AM (they actually restored it by 12:30AM), so it wasn't likely necessary for us to fire up the generator. The small UPS units in two rooms kept the PCs and an LED floor lamp on each running. For my mother-in-law's apartment, I grabbed the Greenworks inverter and plugged in the power strip that runs her lights, power recliner, etc. Still 2 LEDs lit on the battery after the power came back on. This was the first real test for this inverter and it worked well!Just added this Greenworks Pro 80V (300 Watt) Power Inverter...

Leaf blowers are power hungry because they are constant run, and like full juice to be effective.I am still not a believer, figure i get a whopping 15 minutes out of my leaf blower max, need 3 batteries to finish my bungalow style lot.
