Redback 120V Lithium-Ion 21” Cordless Push Lawn Mower: Review


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 Continue Reading


Redback 40V Lithium Ion Cordless Pole Chainsaw (106070): Product Review


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 Continue Reading


Redback 40V 12” Li-Ion Cordless Chainsaw (106068): Product Review


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. Continue Reading

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.

Redback 40V Cordless Blower (106062): Product Review


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. Continue Reading
