In an effort to go green or simply battle the rise in the price of a gal of gas I would have to believe that if there was a quality battery powered set of Lawn care equipment that lawn care companies would be there. Items such a trimmers, edgers, leaf blowers, and hedgers. I thought of it did a little patent research because I couldn't recall seeing anything like this but low and behold Black and Decker beat me to the trimmer. However their stuff is generally crap and just by looking at their design it is all wrong. All of there weight is in the head of the trimmer instead of behind the handle which when designed properly, such as a Stihl or an Echo, the head should float to avoid scalping. They call it a trimmer edger but they don’t have what I would consider a true edger such as, again Stihl and Echo, which uses a metal blade which acts as a guide leaving you with a much cleaner and straighter cut line. And also Ryobi has a trimmer, hedger and blower but again lower quality and not quite the right design. Plus they are still using the old Nicad batteries and the rigid 24v XLi batteries would be way better. Not to mention I have never seen any of these things except on the internet. I believe that if you could produce a quality, commercial level line of equipment and got it into Lawn equipment stores. It would sell especially if it was close to comparable to the Stihl or the Echo. Again because of the rising cost of fuel which seems to be the number one killer of lawn and landscape companies. You would not only save them a ton in gas but 2 stroke oil as well, and you would be able to sell a lot of batteries and chargers. To me it just makes sense; let me know if anyone agrees.
No announcement yet.
why not Lawn care equipment?
