Over the past five years, there has been an estimated 75 percent increase in electric-powered landscaping equipment sold in the United States: compared with gasoline-powered tools, electric equipment has very low to zero total emissions.
Electric landscaping tools are being embraced for private and commercial use alike. And the switch to electric makes sense for many — more than just being eco-friendly, they are much quieter, non-fume producing, and easier to maintain when compared to gasoline-powered alternatives.
While battery-powered technology is continuously evolving, much progress is being made, and companies are creating durable electric equipment that is able to keep up with the demand. John Wyatt of Stanley Outdoor, for example, says of his company that “we continue to innovate cordless (electric) products focused on delivering high performance while having lower noise and no emissions in use.”
