To meet the needs of ground care professionals in terms of power, performance, convenience and wellbeing, EGO Power+ is launching its first dedicated range of commercial cordless garden tools.
Powered by the patented design of the 56V Arc Lithium battery system, which delivers the power of petrol without the petrol, the range comprises three high-spec tools – a hedge trimmer, a commercial line trimmer, and a blower, each being tough, low maintenance construction tools.
EGO have spent a lot of time talking to professional users to better understand what is required from them of their tools. The result is a range of tools designed to perform beyond the expectations.
The hedge trimmer uses blades made from laser-cut steel with diamond-ground edges to ensure a sharpness and cleanness of cut. They are then laser-hardened to ensure they stay sharper for longer.
In an industry first, the brush cutter has a carbon fibre shaft which makes it more lightweight for ease of handling, but, even more importantly, it is extremely strong. Where standard aluminium shafts can bend or get damaged, this shaft stays strong to meet the day-to-day routine of handling, transporting and storing.
At its maximum, the blower can blow at a rate of 1079m3/h with a speed of 212km/h and a force of 20 newtons. This level of performance is on par with top petrol backpack blowers. However, unlike petrol blowers, operational volume is incredibly low at just 80 decibels meaning it can be used in areas with strict noise regulations.
Additional to these three tools, EGO will also launch a new backpack battery. With an IP rating of 56 this new battery is suitable for all weather conditions. There’s no need to place a plastic cover over the top of it due to its 1500 watt hour capacity.
“Reliability is a must for ground care professionals, but comfort is also essential when people are working every day. The development of our battery technology is matched by a commitment to high-spec construction, giving users a suite of tools engineered for their needs,” explains Steve Roskell of EGO.
“The range is comfortable and convenient to use, delivers exceptional results and – backed by the EGO Arc Lithium battery – matches and even exceeds what can be achieved with conventional petrol-powered tools.”
The EGO Power+ Commercial Range is launched in Spring/Summer 2018. To find out more about EGO technology, please visit www.egopowerplus.co.uk
