This is the first time I have used a battery-powered chain saw, and it just feels a lot different in operation. Nothing seems to stop the thing from cutting. During this session, the largest branches I cut were around 5 in diameter. The speed of the blade appears to be slower than a gas saw. The only "negative" so far is that they tell you to empty the oil when in storage as it will slowly leak out. My first impressions are GREAT! *** I did not take video or pictures during operations for safety reasons ***

I am getting ready for my first run mowing the yards. I have re-read the manual and found some confusion about mower height. The mower single adjuster lever has numbered slots for height. It does not indicate the actual height. There is no table in the manual. The following settings are what I measured with my mower. 1.5 inches 2.0 inches 2.5 inches 3.0 inches 3.5 inches 4.0 inches 4.5 inches The manual has a caution to remove Start Key and battery packs before adjusting the height. In general, I feel that a bit more caution is needed around this type of mower as it is simpler to start! Removing the Start Key and hanging it up in a safe place seems to be a good idea. I also am thinking about purchasing a spare start key as a backup.
We are mowing two yards every week or so. My son and I have been cutting about every five to six days. The first two times, we used both the 6AH batteries and part of a 5AH battery. On the third time (#5 and #6), my son ran the mower, and he used all of that third 5AH battery. Last week we shared mowing, and we used both of the 6AH batteries and both a 4AH and 5AM batteries. The grass is not any longer, it may be a bit thicker, but I feel the problem is the blade sharpness. Blades after six and eight cuttings Before we mow again this week, I will sharpen the blades to see if I am right! NOTE: The mower is still cutting very evenly! NOTE: With my Honda gas mower, I had to do the same thing, sharpen multiple times over the season. The Honda did not cut well at all if it was dull.
