I find it important to know how long a company has been around before purchasing a line of tools that will require me to purchase more of your products in the future (more batteries) in order for them to continue to operate. In order to confidently do this, I need some background on EGO as a company. How long have they been around? Are they a subsidiary of any larger company? While I like the idea of rechargeable mowers and yard tools, a gas mower will go for years and years after the manufacturer is no longer around. If EGOes under in the next 3-5 years and I need new batteries, I now have $1k worth of plastic that does me nothing. Can you address these concerns please?
