Electric Lawn Equipment

Empowering you to make the switch.

Top 5 reasons to go electric

Compared to traditional gas-powered lawn equipment, electric counterparts boast:

  1. longer life span;
  2. easier maintenance;
  3. less noise pollution;
  4. less air pollution; and
  5. lighter weight.

Electric mowers yield lower emissions and are more efficient than gas-powered lawn mowers. In fact, power plants are also more efficient than gas-powered lawn mowers.

Electric lawn equipment is ideal for smaller yards (less than a half-acre in size).

Using a gas-powered leaf blower for just a half hour produces about the same amount of emissions as driving a big pick-up truck 3,900 miles, according to a study from Edmunds.*

Check with your local government to see if they offer rebates on electric lawn equipment.
