Torque, and CC comparison.

You guys should consider changing a couple things about whats posted on products.

You should do a CC comparable rating. Saying "as powerful as gas" is one thing, but putting a number to it is another. I was thinking about this after using the trimmer, it definitely is not as powerful, or near the cutting torque as my gas trimmer.

Another conversation brought up another idea, you guys should put a graduated run time chart. Take for instance the recent blower conversation. I noticed the blower has 5 power settings, and turbo (at least noticeable notches, you can place the dial anywhere you want). So a  Lo, Medium, High, Turbo run time chart would be better than saying (runs for an hour) but not saying that is on low.

Just a thought, but I believe comparing it to a quantified gas engine would be better, you could even be creative (out performs a 18 cc trimmer motor). I just feel the statement you guys have "Performing as well as, or better than, premium gas-powred models) is an extreme stretch, as it struggled with some jobs that the gas trimmer does in minutes. In fact it took me twice as long to get the job done in all fairness. (Comparison model is a 28.1CC high torque motor) just to give you an idea of what it was up against.

I do like the products, and plan to keep them, but I believe a comparison would be better than a statement that it out performs premium gas equipment, at least include a benchmark.

Doc, there's a pretty complete set of specs and run times in the manual. From page 12:
