  1. How long do the batteries hold their charge? Thinking of getting one to keep in the car for when quoting. I don't often work on the tools any more but occasionally I have a 5 min job or call out that I could easily do if I had a saw with me and it works out expensive for me to send a team..

We have stopped buying them as although they are well liked by the climbers they do not hold up the abuse that employees subject them too.. I expect they would last considerably better when used by someone who paid for them..
  11. No I don't. Morsø S81-90 MORSOE.COM The Morsø S81 is a different and exciting insert, specially designed for smaller rooms. The frame is not included in the price.
  12. We found this was a problem in our narrow living room, so went for a morso inset stove.
