On lithium-ion battery verses petrol powered outdoor equipment

Cordless outdoor power equipment manufacturer EGO has published a new whitepaper that looks at the benefits of lithium-ion battery versus petrol powered outdoor equipment.

Steve Roskell, marketing director (EMEA) of EGO said, “In the world of professional landscaping and grounds maintenance, petrol has been the fuel of choice for over 100 years - mainly because there has been no viable challenger. Recently however, battery powered cordless equipment has begun to gain worldwide popularity and increased market share, signalling the most significant shift in the sector for decades.”

EGO say there are four key factors driving this trend: health & safety, user comfort, the environment and economics, all of which outlined in a dedicated whitepaper commissioned by themselves, which looks at how to increase safety, productivity, sustainability and cost-effectiveness in commercial gardening.

EGO say their whitepaper provides “extensive evidence of the potential risks posed by petrol to user health and the environment and the benefits of battery powered tools to company cashflow”.

Steve continues, “In each of these areas, the benefits of lithium-ion batteries over petrol are overwhelming. Moreover, the emergence of new generation batteries and equipment by global manufacturers such as EGO means that lithium-ion batteries can now match or even surpass the performance of petrol, without any of the drawbacks.”
