whoever buys these things deserves to be shot:/ you are only encouraging manufacturers to waste time and resources in this crap.
1. any cordless/corded chainsaw, trimmer, lawnmower tool is completely useless because of low power output. you can literally cut the grass faster using a kitchen knife!
2. reliability of these tools is sooo much lower compared to gas. frankly i`m surprised it survived 13 months but thats because you probably were not even using it regularly because point #1 :))
people think that because electric has less moving parts, no liquids, lubrication etc its somehow more reliable to gas but they don;t understand that electric is very sensible to outside factors, gas is not. if you get some dust into the ac or dc motor and it's dead. besides, gas has decades of heavy usage => refinements, but electric was never used in tough condition until recently and it proves every day it cant handle it.
gas is dirty but right now it's the only way to go for some tools
