Power That Meets or Beats Gas

t’s true. Li-ion technology now offers gas-powered performance without the gas hassle. That means battery-powered tools deliver just as much horsepower and torque as their gas counterparts, with lower vibration on top of it. 


2.

Push Button Start – No More Pull Cords

ver struggled with a pull cord while you’re trying to start a gas-powered tool? It’s frustrating, so cut the cord and go with battery power, where starting the motor is push-button easy. 


3.

Battery-Powered Tools are Lightweight

The average gas lawn mower weighs around 95 pounds. Battery-powered mowers weigh about 50 pounds without the battery, so you can easily maneuver it without needing a self-propelled function. 


4.

Money Savings – No Gas To Buy

Gas is expensive. Why spend dollars on a gallon of gas for your tools when you can spend pennies charging a battery? You’ll also save money (and time) by not making trips to the gas station for a gallon or two at a time. 


5.

Interchangeable Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries offer the convenience of switching batteries between tools. Keep a few extra to go longer or utilize multiple tools at once. Both the 80-volt and the 40-volt lithium batteries take anywhere from a quick 30 minutes to 2 hours to fully charge and they don’t suffer from memory loss, so you have full power from start to finish.


6.

Quiet Operation

What’s that sound? It’s the sound of your family thanking you for using a quiet mower when you use battery power. You can start mowing earlier without the worry of waking any of your neighbors up, too.


7.

No Maintenance

You know all that time you spend draining gas out of your mower or changing the spark plugs, air filter and oil in it? Battery-powered mowers are as low maintenance as it gets since they need only a charged battery to start right up. 


8.

No Gas or Oil Spills

People spill around 800 million gallons of gas each year when they use gas tools. Keep your driveway and yard free of gas when you switch to battery power.


9.

No Harmful Fumes

When you give up your gas tools, you also give up the carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and other exhaust fumes that come with it. In addition to helping the environment, you’ll save yourself from exposure to dangerous gases.


10.

Cool Factor

A lot of people are getting rid of their gas tools and bringing home sleek, new battery-powered lawn and garden tools. They love the quiet, ease of use and cost savings, and the jealous looks from over the fence don’t hurt either.
