  1. Workshop addict reviewed both versions of the chainsaw and noted that the 40V version has more power than the 60V. I went ahead and picked up the 40V since that's what I'm already using with my existing outdoor power equipment. I'm totally happy with it.
  2. I'm invested in both 40V and 60V platforms. Is there a difference between the two battery chainsaws? I know they operate at different voltages (duh), but voltage doesn't equate to power; watts do. Are there subtle differences between the two units that are not advertised? https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-tools/outdoor-power-equipment/40v-max-xr-16-cordless-chainsaw-bare/dccs690b https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-tools/outdoor-power-equipment/flexvolt-60v-max-cordless-chainsaw-tool-only/dccs670b
  3. I did, and it is. I picked up the 21" self-propelled EGO with the 7.5Ah 56V battery. $600 bucks from Home Depot's website (ouch); but man-oh-man, it absolutely tore through 2/3 of an acre of a weeded field last weekend. I did stop to charge for a few minutes, but I needed that break more than the mower did. Sorry Dewalt, you were too late to the game.
  4. I emailed Dewalt to see what's up and received this response: "Thank you for contacting us. At this time we have no plans to offer a 40v XR lawn mower. I apologize if this causes you any inconvenience. Please check back with us in the future for new products. " That's either a canned statement or a total bummer! If you're in the market for outdoor tools and only want a single battery system / fuel type, you may want to look at other manufacturers.
  5. There's a chainsaw coming out this spring? Isn't it already out? http://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DCCS690M1-Lithium-Brushless-Chainsaw/dp/B014A0MO0E Can you confirm that a mower will be part of that outdoor offering?
  6. I’m a big fan of my Dewalt 40V XR tools. The string trimmer and blower are a perfect fit for my needs. Last weekend, my old gas lawn mower took a dirt nap, and I was ready to drop some coin on Dewalt’s 40V mower (sight unseen and totally based on how happy I am with the other tools) BUT there is no Dewalt 40V mower? Seems like a gaping hole in their outdoor tool strategy! The next best thing to me looks like the EGO mower, but I don’t want to invest in a whole new battery system or in a product that is only sold by Home Depot. I know the 40V tools only came out in March of 2015, and am wondering if I should expect more tools to be released this March? Seems like there would be a press release or an unveiling at an equipment show to preview the product before general availability. Does anyone here have a line on Dewalt’s product roll-out cycle for the 40V gear? My lawn is getting taller...
