Are their ever deals on any  Power+ 15" string trimmer with larger the 2.5Ah battery. I have a large lot, without a house yet :(, that has light weeds I have to remove and need longer then the 2.5Ah battery. I will have to drive 3 hours to get there and won't be able to charge the battery.  Driving home and back doesn't make sense and will have to use my old, heavy, gas trimmer.

I don't know about deals, but all the batteries are interchangeable, so you could buy a bare tool and then pop for the larger battery, or better, buy the full kit and buy another battery and have both charged. you could also just buy the mower with the 7.5 batt? Besides lawn, I use ours to clear rough fringe areas on our property. The only time I had trouble was plowing the mower into some dense too long bent over wet fallow grass. Otherwise I use it to take out understory weeds like young burdock, bull thistle, and stinging nettle. the area we do is more than two acres. it takes us about an hour and a half. or avg. 40 mins run time on each battery, using the sp feature near constantly cause I'm lazy.

I could just pop for the extra battery but it seems to me they could be more flexible in their pricing.

The trimmer with battery is 200 and the trimmer alone is 130 and battery is 130 => 260 or a $60 savings.  I would be happy with a 50 savings on the trimmer with the bigger battery.

They sell on eBay for cheaper but no warranty. I would buy 2 tools. Or the power head with trimmer. That has a 5 ah battery I believe. And it's the coolest thing ever.

Oh, and just a plug, unless your property is in a subdivision with lawn rules, or you got tagged by the county for having some noxious black-listed plants, unless you are being forced to cut it, remember fallow fields are terribly important, and vanishing, habitat for songbirds and butterflies, etc. Just saying... if you don't *have* to cut it, you could just relax and get points for helping the local wildlife hang on a bit longer. Also, not sure where you are, but nesting season is starting so you might want to at least wait til midsummer to whack it, if you can. Our townships have started holding off the ditch mowing til the babies have moved on.

Love this. I think we all need to approach nature with this mind set.

My property is between two already built houses and the fire marshal is on my case.  No chance I can let it go.  Neighbors will scream louder then they already are because of no house.
