We simply began a brand new 12 months and a brand new firm has sprung up with new cordless outside energy gear. This new model referred to as Snapper has a brand new 60V line and all of their garden gear are powered by brushless motors. They’re beginning with 5 garden instruments with a 21″ stroll behind mower, 24″ hedge trimmer, 16″ chain noticed, leaf blower, and 16″ string trimmer.
What’s fascinating is that it seems Snapper is the title of the model and so they promote their instruments as being powered by Briggs And Stratton. The Briggs And Stratton brand seems on all the lithium ion batteries used within the Snapper line. Snapper additionally makes the declare that these are the “trade’s first 60V battery system”. 60 volts is just a few volts greater than related 56V and 58V methods so I imagine these will compete with related voltage cordless traces from Worx, Ego, and Echo. When it comes to pricing, they’re competitively priced and look to compete straight towards the Ego 56V line and the Worx 56V line.
The entire outside energy instruments within the line embody 2.0ah lithium ion batteries aside from the blower and mower. The blower comes with a 2.5ah battery and the mower features a 4.0ah battery. I’m unsure when this new line hit the scene however they’re all at the moment accessible on the market and could be discovered on the Walmart web site.

Thanks Cody, thanks for sharing!
The Snapper instruments look similar to the 80v Greenworks tooks
“60 volts is just a few volts greater than related 56V and 58V methods so I imagine these will compete with related voltage cordless traces from Worx, Ego, and Echo.” That’s as a result of it’s a bogus (pretend) quantity, they rounded it. The closest you will get is 16 or 17 lithium-ion cells at 3.6/3.7 volts every for 57.6/59.2 or 61.2/62.9 volts. Or whether it is lithium iron phosphate at 3.2 volts every the closest is eighteen or 19 cells for 57.6/60.8 volts. This appears to be a standard apply for lithium instrument battery promoting today sadly. Fact in promoting… Learn extra »
The Snapper video exhibits 30 AA measurement cells within the battery pack. Unsure of the voltage on every cell.
3.6 And three.7 are just about out of date… most r now between 3.8 and 4.3 relying on chemical make-up… lithium ion or lithium polymer… however every has a minimal and most cost vary which is why the phrase max might be used. I restore and rebuild battery packs and these instruments r no joke and shouldn’t be taken aside and messed w until ur prepared for a nasty shock or burn… the dry pores and skin on ur fingers will start to conduct electrical energy at round 40v so 60v actually has extra potential for harm particularly w sweaty or moist fingers. ⚡ (50ma… Learn extra »
