A battery-powered lawnmower tractor is the latest addition to Ego, a company that is part of the Chinese Chervon, a giant with a turnover of over 1 billion dollars, at the forefront of the development of cordless technology and which in Italy is distributed exclusively by Brumar. The Z6 tractor can in fact be equipped with up to 6 56 V lithium batteries, which allows it to provide the power and performance of a 22 HP petrol lawn mower and to cut a lawn of over 12,000 m2 (about 25 tennis courts). ) on a single charge.
In addition to the undoubted advantages in terms of sustainability and reduction of noise pollution characteristic of cordless tools, the ride-on mower is really easy to drive, with two levers that allow it to turn on itself at “zero distance”, as if it had the tracks. In addition, the cutting height varies between 2.5 cm and 10 cm and there are three different options to manage the mowing: side discharge, mulching (the grass is finely chopped and thrown back onto the lawn where it serves as compost), or collection .
The price? From 4,999 euros including batteries for 15 Ah (1 x 10Ah and 1 x 5Ah). Batteries that can be mounted on the entire line of gardening tools Ego which, as we said, has made the cordless the flag of him.

In this regard, the company presented research that examined the use of gardening equipment in UK municipalities. As a result, over 89% of the tools used are petrol-powered, for a total consumption of over 600,000 liters of fuel / year. These tools are used to maintain public spaces, parks and even school playgrounds. The tests carried out on the emissions produced show that they consume significant quantities of petrol compared to an average car and, in some cases, even exceed the permitted levels of particulate matter.
