    It's helping me cut a lot of overgrown trees that I havent been well enough to attack since middle of last year and its doing a sterling job.

    This is my 4th ozito light battery operated tool and each one comes with a 5yr warranty.

    I have 2 batteries which lasts long enough for any gardening session for me.....then you've got to clean up.

    the ice tools are gone except for the blower when I sometimes need a serious blast of air.....oh, and the ride on.
    Just been looking at them since i have other ozito tools, currently $134 skin only or i just fond one on gumtree near me for $90 2nd hand.

    The batteries seem to last forever.

    The small petrol one we have probably won’t be used again.
    Yeah they're just brilliant for any small to medium sized job - can have the job half done in the time it takes just to mess around with fuel and starting.

    I think there's also a couple of 3/8" chain versions of the Stihl out now?

    I haven't got an Ego brand chainsaw but if the blower I have is anything to go buy the chainsaw would be fantastic. The blower has more grunt than my Stihl 2 stroke blower. Build is excellent as is battery life. Cheers

    Saw an ozito 18V chainsaw on gumtree for $90, asked the seller about condition and if it was still under warranty or not.He says no and it works find, i leave it a few and offer him $60 and replies with $80 cash and its yours. I counter offer $70 and he wont budge, so i check facebook and his daughter in law has listed it for $50 so i quickly go and collect

    I've never seen Stihl or Huskies second hand so I assume either - no one's buying them, everyone loves them and wants to be buried with them, or they don't survive and aren't worth selling on...?!

    Its a bottom tier item so i'm not expecting it to be great but from the reviews ive seen it will do what i want - cant lose for $50.

    Totally. Worth it for the battery.

    Had an arborist in to do some reduction pruning and deadwood removal from a couple of old gums recently. He used a small Stihl and said it was brilliant, would never go back to an IC saw again for timber up to about 200mm dia. I think the saw he used was a professional model, one hand operation and cost around $750 (skin only), battery & charger would probably add another $500 .......... so well out of my range!
    I've had no personal experience with battery operated equipment like this and that probably won't change in the near future.
