Comprehensive battery-powered handheld line focuses on enhanced run time and high performance
SPELLBROOK, England (February, 2017) –Toro, a global leader in turf and landscape maintenance equipment, is introducing the all-new PowerPlex™ family of handheld 40V Max* lithium ion products to its range late this Spring. Ideal for homeowners the complete range of equipment is compact and easy-to-use yet rivals the power and performance of gas-powered models.
The family of hand-held products includes a brushless DC blower, a brushless DC chainsaw, a 61cm hedge trimmer, a 33cm string trimmer / edger, and a 35cm brushless DC string trimmer – and each is designed to be highly productive and easy to use.
The PowerPlex™ blower can move up to 815 cubic meter per hour helping to cover large areas quickly, while the 61cm hedge trimmer boasts a 90-degree rotating handle for simple operation and ease of use. The PowerPlex™ 35cm chainsaw is ideal for property maintenance and a fully functional chain brake comes standard on the unit. Furthermore, both PowerPlex™ string trimmers feature variable-speed trigger control to handle various applications and offer a targeted run time of around 40 minutes on a single charge.
The products use a 40V lithium ion rechargeable battery, with one battery pack to fit all the different products. Included with the range is the T90, a 40-Volt Max*, 2.5 amp-hour and 90 watt-hour, lithium ion battery, taking a short time to charge but offering long usage. An optional extra is the T180, a 40-Volt Max*, 5.0 Amp-Hour and 180 watt-hour battery.
Both batteries include an on-board power meter, and the T180 battery features an integrated LED flashlight, USB charging port for charging tablets, mobile phones and other small devices, and a folding handle for simple transport. Batteries are interchangeable between products, allowing operators to easily switch from one task to another.
And for peace of mind each product comes with a 3 Year warranty.
Julie Dommett, Marketing Manager for Toro, commented: “When developing the product range we concentrated on providing an impressive run time without sacrificing performance. These factors are crucial to our customers and we believe we have tackled this issue whilst still offering a range that is able to effectively tackle a range of outdoor jobs.”
