I got rid of my deutscher after being told They couldnt warrant the battery as it didnt have enough hours on it. 

That makes no sense. The more hours a unit has the less likely you'd get warranty for anything.Mind you the battery would most likely have a limited warranty much like the engine when in commercial use.Those batteries ain't cheap either

They dont have an hour meter standard and if they did, so what, it has the pull start for those occasions when battery dies and i guess the dealer had never heard of battery chargers (one of which i own).
So had i not fitted an hour meter how would they know how many hours it had done? 
This was the first service mind you.

‚ÄčIf your not looking for a chainsaw the price is the same as the 21'' Victa (The 36v (2x18) AEG is $749)

I've seen that video before and I think he's expecting too much of any mower - he was mulching a decent cut height of damp grass and expecting to walk forward at a brisk pace -  try that with a 217 and it will clog and stall for sure - Mulchmaster fanboys may be able to claim better I don't know - Anyway he comes across as a bit of a t0sser in all his videos I reckon.

Try watching the vids on You Tube then you can read all the comments  :) I did say he,s only one too. 
As Croc says (and others on the Tube) too low too wet no work  ;)  
Personally if i was buying a cordless mower i,d probably go the 21'' Victa and lower the blade

Oh an MM with sd would knock that over pretty quick and your right about too low etc, some of the comments on You Tube said exact same.
Personally i would have used my Rider  ;)

Here,s another on the DeWalt (Yank version of Oz Tool Talk ), watch it on you tube and read some of the comments. For ''small'' jobs probably ok.
