Flex Volt OPE

Does anyone have any updates on Flex Volt OPE. Its time to ditch the gas blower. Wondering when it due out and if they have released any specs.

I think I saw a Flexvolt handheld blower in one of the preview videos.  I believe they said Spring of 2017.

I'm hoping to see a mower announced this year among other things.

There was a picture of one that even showed some specs that I saw recently.  It was an internal document so I don't think it was meant to get out.  The one it showed appeared to only be a 20v one.  I was rather surprised by that.  I would of thought it would be on the Flexvolt line instead to get enough power.  Maybe it was just an early proof of concept.  I would be surprised if they did that at this point as I don't think it would be able to deliver enough power.

Maybe they are only doing a 20v version because Flexvolt would be compatible anyways it just wouldn't be 60/120v depending on how they do things.

At first, I thought that would be a plus.  After thinking on it more though, I just don't think it would have enough power unless they did some sort of x2 configuration but don't think they would as it would make things even muddier. 

 

Right now I believe the confirmed tools are the blower, string trimmer and chainsaw.  I have not see a hedge trimmer yet but wondering if it might not be to heavy with the FV battery, especially as it is a tool you tend to stretch to reach some places.

I think they will have a hedge trimmer they have one with the 40v packs and those are bigger than the Flexvolt
