Task Force Cordless 20", 24 volt 3 in 1 Mower
I purchased this mower two weeks ago after talking with folks at Lowes regarding battery life and asking if there were returns on the item due to disappointment. Lowes staff did not have much to report on the item; however noted I could purchase an extended warranty. By the second mow the battery was low and would not accept a charge.
The charger showed the battery was fully charged but the battery itself showed low charge. After 45 minutes to the call-in line, no answer but a message indicating I should leave my number for a call back. I redialed only to find that (east coast) they were closed for the day. I never received a call back. This morning I called the number again. After ten minutes I got a body. The attendant answered "Hello". Thought I dialed a wrong (residence) number. I explained my issue. The attendant said I had a bad battery and that this was typically due to improper charging or storage over the winter but I could take the battery back to Lowes and receive a new one.
I am not willing to go through the hastle and will wait for technology to improve. I simply want to mow my lawn. I would prefer to do it in a green manner but I guess we (America) are not ready. Very disappointed! My greatest fear in leaping to the cordless, green product was realized in just two weeks.
