48v vs.58v ficm

Just wondering cause mines dying, but is the 58v ficm really worth the extra money in both performance and reliability or would I be better off to save some bucks and just stick with a 48v ficm? Any help will be much appreciated

Nah, take about half hour/hour. Gotta pull your degas bottle off. ratchet wrenches come in handy.

8 mm ratchet wrench makes the job a million times easier. Just move degas bottle over.
