We all know petrol and diesel engines will be replaced with alternatives in the near future in an effort to go green. Lithium ion powered tools have recently come to the forefront of our industry and it's something that can't be ignored.
The battery has been around now for numerous years, but it is only recently we have seen them become reliable, quick charging and most of all, reasonable in cost.
There are numerous benefits with Lithium Ion equipment. Of course you are doing your bit helping the planet with reducing your emissions, but you can also forget about going to the fuel station to fill your petrol can. Simply pull your battery off charge, which can take as little as 35 minutes to fully charge, plug it in and off you go.
The noise levels of these tools is massively reduced compared to petrol driven alternatives, meaning professional users can start work earlier without causing disturbance, and domestic users can work in peace and quiet after a hectic week at work.
Maintenance costs are typically cheaper and the likelihood of breakdowns is far reduced. With the quality of fuel so poor, carburetor faults will be a thing of the past and your machinery will be ready when you are at the push of a button.
The variety of machinery available now powered by battery is incredible. Everything from Hedgecutters, Strimmers and Chainsaws, to your much bigger equipment such as walk behind and ride on Lawnmowers.
The batteries no longer have a memory so can be charged whenever is convenient, and the amount of work that can be done now on one charge is simply incredible.
Here at Garlick Garden Machinery Limited we are pushing this excellent technology and we encourage you to come and see us and take a look at these machines for yourself, we think you will be pleasantly surprised.
