The Toro PowerPlex platform! These tools feature lightweight lithium-ion batteries and variable speed performance.
All the tools use a 40V Max (40-Volt MAX, 2.5 Amp-hour, 90-Watt-Hour) and there is an optional 180 Watt Hour battery available. The new 180 battery features a light, carrying handle and USB port built right in.
Remember: Voltage is not the determining factor is how much power and runtime a cordless yard tool has. It’s the combination of voltage and amps. How long the battery lasts between charges is dependent on the Watt-Hour rating of the battery, the item itself and how it is used. The higher the Watt-Hour – the more capacity. All the new batteries will have the Watt-Hours listed on the label.
The line will consist of a Cordless hedge trimmer, leaf blower, chainsaw and two string trimmers. There is a 13-inch trimmer for your in-town lawn and a brushless, 14-inch trimmer for your larger suburban lawn. The line is listed on Home Depot and Amazon and will be available to ship shortly.
The trimmers feature a variable speed trigger so you can save battery capacity when trimming lighter areas.

Still NO removable pack cordless mower though,,,,,same , recalcitrant old Toro. Their only cordless mower is just the same as it was back when I bought my first Neuton 24v 14 years ago/
@=William, The biggest problem is most people are not willing to spend $500-$900 on a battery operated walk-behind mower at this time. Because of that only a few brands are currently selling good cordless mowers.
