Going Green With Lawn Care

May 16, 2024

The landscape of lawn and garden maintenance has shifted with the recent emergence of electric equipment. With cutting-edge technology, electric equipment has gained the spotlight with many advantages over traditional gas-powered options.

Dan Suhay, owner of Oakboro Tractor & Equipment, sees this topic as a progression his company has already embraced with their customers. Over the past few years, his business has seen a drastic increase in demand for electric products due to this technology’s increased performance, reliability, and reduced maintenance costs.

“Nearly every level of gas equipment has an electric counterpart, which greatly reduces the number of moving parts and overall maintenance,” states Suhay. The most common are mowers, trimmers, blowers, and chainsaws. Electric-powered equipment offers simplicity with just the push of a button, while their warranties are often as good as, if not better than, gas-powered equipment.

Considering Purchasing Electric Equipment?
Before purchasing electric equipment, get an expert’s analysis to determine the correct battery size for the job. Battery life depends on how often you use your electric equipment and its application. The typical battery life expectancy ranges from 3 to 5 years or 1,000 cycles of use. More importantly, the technology has developed far enough that, in most cases, a battery’s runtime is equivalent or superior to a tank of fuel.

Suhay continued, “Properly sized electric lawn equipment can do the job just as well as gas-powered models. Many manufacturers offer interchangeable batteries, providing flexibility and convenience.” Choosing a single brand can ensure charging compatibility across your lawn equipment and streamline charging.
