The long and short of it introduced to EGO’s hedgetrimmer range
Two lengths of hedge trimmer are now available in the range of 56 volt lithium-ion powered garden products from EGO Power+.
The range, which previously consisted solely of a 61cm option, now features a shorter 51cm model.
As well as the new length, the brand has also introduced an articulating hedge feature that rotates to 45 and 90 degrees, both left and right, to help gardeners trim hard to reach areas.
The new model also features an extended 33mm blade gap, 11mm more than the 61cm model. As well as having an increased load speed of 3000 to 3600 rpm.
Both hedgetrimmers boast EGO’s dual action, laser cut and diamond ground blade for increased precision and cleaner cuts to promote healthy, new hedge growth.
EGO’s European marketing director, Steve Roskell, commented: “Our 2015 launch season showed us that gardeners are desperately seeking an alternative to petrol and electric products. The popularity of our range immediately showed us that our 56 volt products offer them just that! We’ve introduced a new shorter model to the hedge trimmer range as we want to make the range accessible for people with gardens of all sizes.”
The hedge trimmers are powered by EGO’s 56 volt lithium-ion battery that is available as a 2Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah or 7.5Ah. All batteries are interchangeable across the entire EGO range and featured the brand’s patented arc design and “keep cool” cell technology.
The EGO Power+ system is a breakthrough in every way, and has been designed to deliver a new level of cordless performance. In just thirty minutes the 4.0Ah battery can be fully recharged using the rapid charger, which is another first in the lawn and garden world. The entire EGO range matches, if not exceeds, the performance of petrol products without the noise, fuss or fumes.
Prices of the hedge trimmers start from £129.
EGO Power+ products are available nationwide from independent Henton & Chattell dealers, and online at www.egopowerplus.co.uk.
