I have started a collection of Ryobi One cordless tools. Was really worried when Bunnings removed the 4ah batteries as I had brought a mower that took 2 x 4ah batteries about 18 months prior to this and both my batteries and mower worked great as i use the mower for my large nature strip only as i have no other lawns. Yes I freaked. The first sales person was useless I thorght took my name and phone number. Aweek later no phone call. Raced down to Bunnings [Victoria Point] and was ready for blood. Got the sales man who sold me the mower. Hesaid to relax the footprint [where the batteries fit will always be the same. I was also concered that the new 5ah batteries where so expensive and felt that Bunnings where taking advantage of all of us Ryobi One fans by removing a just affordable battery with a new battery that was very expensive especialy when I need two batteries for my mower and being a pensioner felt traped. The salesman showed me that if I brought Two batteries it would only cost me $178's Great Ok. Releived I left the stor and as I go their on average of twice a week kept an eye on the batteries and was shoked when the price of two batteries $178's per 2pk everyday price had been removed and a ticketed everyday price of $199. $20's differance. Was the $178's just a way of Bunning testing the market by entering at the lower price and gradually upping the price to catch the unsuspecting happy customer. How sad.

Sorry Wayne but I must have missed the point unless you are working for bunnings or have a vested interrest in trying to make a simple statement that Bunnings have jacked the price the everyday price [so I was told by the salesman at the time]. I do not understand what this has to do with grocery prices. They do not jack up the prices on all brands of that same jam. You can buy other brands cheaper or by that brand elsewhere. I brought my mower, wippersnipper, torch, cordless vac, right angled drill, drill driver , blower worshop light, and multitool all Ryobi One and I do not have the privilage of buying another brand or going to another strore that sells Ryobi One 18vlt. tools as only Bunnings have that brand and I do not have the money like you obviously do to stop buying Ryobi One tools and buy Markita or someother brand that does have other stores that sell these brands. As I have invested in Ryobi and find that their tools suit me just fine but as a PENSIONER it was a choice I did not make lightly as I plan on having the full set oneday. And that was $20 dollars towards another tool for my modest collection.
