[Video Review!] The cost of the Redback 120V blower falls at the lower end of comparable tools by other manufacturers. Having tested others, I find the Redback a great value. Power meets light weight, maneuverability and long battery life. What’s not to like?
Redback does it again with a lightweight yet powerful offering with its new120vRX Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer. It’s simple to use, runs non-stop for about 70 minutes (the weeds will run out before it does!), operates at 6,000 RPM to easily tackle even tall, shrubby weeds, and is highly maneuverable. Plus, it’s very competitively priced. Of all the string trimmers I’ve reviewed, this is the one I most recommend.
This is a high quality, powerful, full-size, push mower (it’s not self-propelled) that’s a good replacement for a gas mower for lawns up to ¼ acre (you’ll get about one hour of mowing with one battery charge). With multiple batteries, you can cut as big a lawn as you’re willing to mow. It offers mulching, side discharge and bagging options, 7 height adjustments, and easy maneuverability. Redback offers a full range of 120V tools so the battery and charger are interchangeable with other tools.
This is a decent pole chainsaw that cuts aggressively but can stop unexpectedly. I had stopping problems with the first saw I tested but Redback Customer Service quickly sent me a replacement that didn’t have the same issues. It’s well balanced, easy to use with the included shoulder strap and will run for about 25 minutes when fully charged. The instruction manual needs a major revamp and the bar and chain oiler cap has the potential to leak while the saw is in use.
The Redback 40V 4.0 Li-Ion Chainsaw (106068) has all the necessary power to cut through anything from small brush to 10.5” logs, making it comparable to a consumer-grade, gasoline-powered chainsaw. It’s lightweight, easy to use, has a plethora of built-in safety features and is sturdy enough to tackle just about anything. I recommend it without any reservations – it’s simply the best cordless chainsaw I’ve tested to date.
If you’re ready to cut the cord on your electric trimmer or want to upgrade your underpowered 20V rechargeable hedge trimmer, get the Redback E522D. It’s priced right between the least and most expensive trimmers in its category, and this sturdy tool feels built to last for many seasons. It easily cut through everything I threw at it, is easy to maneuver, has good battery life and doesn’t feel any heavier than a corded model.
Redback has produced a very good blower, with excellent quality and safety features, a helpful shoulder belt, 60+ minutes run time, and four blower speeds. It has an electronic control panel instead of a variable-speed trigger-style throttle, and will only run in turbo-speed mode for 30 seconds before dropping down to high speed – two features that some users may not like. Overall though, it’s a good choice for use in the typical suburban property.
With plenty of power, supreme edging, and long battery run times, this well-balanced and easily adjustable string trimmer/edger gets the job done.
The Redback E137C mower is quiet, loaded with safety features, and has several innovative design elements. It’s a fantastic mulching mower, has a high capacity grass catcher and excellent battery life. Overall, it’s by far one of the best cordless Li-Ion battery-operated mowers we’ve tried to date.
