Outdoor power tool specialist EGO has launched its new catalogue for 2020 and outlined its commitment to a more environmentally friendly gardening industry.
As part of its commitment to improving the industry by way of its products, EGO also explains its own determination to reduce its own environmental impact. The catalogue summarises how new technologies installed at its research and development facility have helped to reduce its annual output of CO2 and sulphur dioxide emissions by over 3,355 tonnes and 75 tonnes respectively.
In addition, EGO also introduces an initiative which asks for the wider outdoor power tool, gardening and landscaping industries to join the business in making battery power the number one choice within the next five years.
The new catalogue includes details and technical information on EGO’s brand-new products for gardening and landscaping professionals, including its new 42cm self-propelled mower (LM1701E-SP), a 45cm chainsaw (CS1800E) and a variety of multi-tool attachments.
Also new to the range for 2020 is EGO’s new 10Ah lithium-ion battery (BA5600T) which offers operators extra runtime without the need for multiple batteries. As with all new batteries from 2020, the BA5600T includes a gauge which indicates the remaining power capacity meaning that users can plan their work based on the charge required to finish the task at hand.
Steve Roskell, Marketing Director EMEA at EGO, said: “Battery-powered outdoor power tools are more than capable of replacing the fume-belching petrol machines that have dominated our industry for too long. Our new catalogue for 2020 really outlines how serious we are about tackling the environmental impact of our industry and how we can work together for a greener future.
“Aside from showcasing our new zero-emission products, the catalogue provides professionals with all the answers to their questions about battery power and why EGO as a business is wholly committed to making a difference – from initiatives such as installing our new low carbon heating system to right down to having this catalogue printed on FSC paper!”
