This certification is designed to help national and state procurement agencies, county and municipal departments, academic institutions, non profits, and private sector grounds maintenance outfits select quality commercial cordless electric equipment that has been third-party laboratory and field-tested independent of equipment manufacturers. Manufactures are required to meet all safety requirements mandated by US Federal, and State agencies. AGZA Field-Tested Certified Equipment requires a spectrum of verified real world use in different temperature ranges and workload conditions. Equipment has to be tested on a variety of turf types, hedge and bed vegetation, and hardscapes. Tools performance and reliability are tested in tough warm-season and cool-season wet, thick, worst-case operating conditions in peak cutting seasons, and in inclement weather conditions. Testing also includes dry, less challenging conditions when growth has slowed down. Lawn mowers and all handhelds must not experience battery, structural, or mechanical failures under recommended heavy-duty commercial use for the minimum required time period under AGZA field testing conditions. 

*AGZA and its national affiliates test equipment in a variety of regional commercial workload settings to establish reasonable averages on the safety, quality, and performance of tools.
