"nice one not tried the fsa86r personally but if its anything like its predecessor the fsa85 it will be "just the ticket" for your needs. would buy one myself but no need to replace mine as seem virtually unbreakable. Only maintenance being a new…"
"Great, I'll get one of those for sure...
At the moment I've only used 300 on the hedge trimmers where they've not been recommended but to me they seem fine...
I'll order one unit only and see how I get on
"that's it steve, FSA86R. If you have ap300 batteries its fine to try it with them. See how you get on before splashing out on other packs. I tend to use mine just as a strimmer the edging lawns on side trick doesnt really work for me, i'm more a…"
