The new battery-powered garden equipment range from EGO Power+ is ?destined? to take over from petrol and electric equipment in the UK market.
The lithium-ion technology is environmentally friendly, reliable, easy to operate and cheaper to run than petrol ? and EGO is a 56V range, whereas the traditional battery size has been 36V. EGO says that the range will reduce the noise, fuss and fumes associated with petrol engines.
The new system will provide an average running time of 45 minutes based on a 30-minute recharge from flat. The range has three battery options, each of which will fit all of the products in the range, and a standard or rapid charger option.
The range includes a blower, chainsaw, hedgetrimmer, lawnmower and two strimmers. The battery and charger are sold separately, but the lawnmower comes complete with both.
The EGO range will be available nationally through Henton & Chattell?s specialist independent machinery dealers in time for the 2015 season. Petrol machinery won?t disappear overnight, but there is little doubt that they very quiet roar of the Li-ion powered garden equipment will be heard much more in the coming years.
