It appears you are quite correct about that battery voltage, my bad. I may be mistaken but I believe I have read that it is (or was) illegal to sell consumer battery equipment operating in excess of fifty volts for safety reasons. That could be why replacements are scarce. That may also be why forty volt tools are currently the highest voltage ones you'll see. One exception is electric car batteries but they're not considered user serviceable. Of course you may be able to rig something to put three forty volt batteries in series but that could be a bit awkward for portable equipment.
There are several other companies making 120 volt battery powered mowers, yard force and swift. Also greenforce makes 80 volt tools, ego 56 volt , and dewalt 60 volt tools that I am aware of probably more.

Has anyone on here bought and used any of Redback 120 volt outdoor equipment? Examples chain saw , hedge trimmer, leaf blower, string trimmer, lawn mower. I bought several of the tools before pandemic and really like them but apparently they went out of business. 2 of the batteries for the mower 3 ah show defective and will not charge and I cannot find replacements anywhere anyone have any ideas.

Thanks for the link. I will contact the Surplus center for some information about them. It seems that the 3 ah batteries have had a lot of problems as I am not the only person that has had them go bad

i was charging a redback 120 volt battery outside my 5th wheel rv because that is what i did past tense until someone took a screwdriver and jammed it into the battery terminal on purpose and mangled the terminal so the moral of the story is not to charge your power tool batteries outside your house you just can't trust people these days now i charge them only in my house only
