Looks like I've found a possible way around that; the 80V 'Kobalt' branded tools that Lowes carries appear to be the same as the Greenworks(on which crappy tire has a monopoly on in Canada).
The Lowes site lists a standard 5 year warranty on parts/labour. No mention of it being shorter on the battery, but that might be in-store fine print...
Lowes has the saw priced @ $499 vs $440 for crappy tire, but with a current 15% off $500 promo it's actually slightly cheaper. Haven't seen any sales on this saw @ CT.
Unfortunately there's no location on the island yet, but one is opening @ Tillicum sometime this year, in theory.
If/when get it, I'll check compatibility with the greenworks batteries, since my dad has a greenworks 80V blower I can borrow.
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
