Eric loves the 2 X 18v = 36V system from Makita. It is a great way to double your power without going to a new battery platform. Everyone hates getting a new battery platform. The DLM380 from Makita is an electric lawn mower that uses the same batteries that you use for your 18V tools. If you are a Makita user and need an electric lawn mower this is a no brainer. The only bad thing is that it is only available in the UK. Lucky Brits!
Ryobi has a similar system for their lawnmower in Europe that uses 2 of their One+ batteries to run a 36v lawnmower. It’s a great Idea I don’t know why they wouldn’t release it here, The Ryobi One+ system is huge and a bunch of people already have One+ yard tools. http://uk.ryobitools.eu/outdoor-en/lawn-mowing-en/rlm18x40h240-en/rlm18x40h240-en/
Wow that looks sleek!
I wonder if they could do the same thing with hand held out door powered equipment. It would be hard to get the packaging and balance right with stem pack batteries. Slide pack batteries make the dual battery system much easier to implement in a well designed way. You don’t have as much bulk and mass to deal with like stem packs do.
UK is not the only ones that have them we have them here in Canada.
We also got 4.0 ah batt. since January. Something I think you guys said you didn’t have in the US.
Guess again dude
