Was told by Bunnings on purchasing Whippersnipper and chainsaw that they were the newest product put out by Victa and the range would be added to later and yes I certainly could get a pole saw attachment for the whippersnipper, now told by both Bunnings and Victa agents 80v now discontinued. emailed Victa for advice, unsatisfactory reply. now stuck with product.
Grass cutter, not a awn mower
The Victa 80v battery operated lawn mower is a good bit of gear and very easy to use but it is only a grass cutter. If you want a well manicured lawn then this mower is not for you. Good life from the batteries. Discontinued product from Bunnings. Also bought the chainsaw console-very good. No maintenance issues since purchase.
Bunnings has discontinued Victa 80v
We have a 700 sq m block and it copes quite well. Mower not picking up all the grass, leaves a strip of clippings on the right side.BIGGER WORRY. Went in to Bunnings on the weekend, and after only 6 months they no longer stock the 80v. I cannot trace a source for a replacement battery. Highly disgusted
No more mess, same power as petrol, and it lasts.
After smelling like 2 stroke petrol after a day's work in the gardens, after the mess of spilling oil and mixing fuel. The issues of on going yearly services and maintenance. 10 years on from my original Victa lawn mower, I decide to go all enviro friendly.
After my old work horse took its last breath with the bluish smoke in the background. It was time to retire the beast.
My new upgrade after looking through the isles of my local Bunnings store, and ongoing Internet and YouTube visits. I made the punt and purchased th Victa 80v 21in lawn mower. There were no reviews or even YouTube clips. So the punt was higher. I found that this beast is an adaption of the greenworks pro and adapted for australia.
This looks and feels like a true lawn mower. The power I can say matches my now deceased beast.
The battery lasts an hour and it came with 2 batteries with a full charge in 30min
I found that the engine will adapt and provide more power going through thick grass. The mulching attachment is awesome and the noise is almost absent. No more need for ear muffs
The only issue I have was the handles. This machine looks a beauty but then you look at the handles and it feels some what incomplete. Just like a super model who then smiles and has teeth missing. Same feeling of disappointment. But you would still go there.
I highly recommend this machine. Only been 2 weeks in so will see how we go.
