Battery-powered mower launched

Published:  01 April, 2019

Echo has introduced a new battery-powered mower to its range of grounds care machines.

Until now, Echo did not have a mower in its arsenal of products. However, with the introduction of a new 58V battery-powered mower, the LM-58V4AH offers petrol-performance from a battery product.

The new mower is the product of extensive development and Echo claims that this mower has all the benefits of its petrol counterparts, whilst bringing a range of green credentials.

‘These include low noise, low vibration, no emissions at the point of use and minimal maintenance. This makes it ideal for working in noise and emission sensitive areas such as parks and public gardens, educational establishments and around hospitals as well as domestic gardens. Coupled with no fuel-filling or fuel storage required, no-pull start and a lower lifetime cost of ownership,’ comments Echo representative Tony Hawkins.

‘The LM-58V4AH is powered by a 58V lithium-ion battery and a brushless motor, which is long lasting and maintenance free due to non-wearing parts; helping to reduce downtime and servicing costs. It has a run time of up to forty minutes on one battery and comes with a quick charger to fully charge the 4Ah battery in sixty minutes. There are dual battery compartments and a simple key system activates a second optional battery for maximum convenience and minimal disruption.’

The mower features a 53cm (21”) cutting deck that is robust, will not rust and comes with a grass collection bag and mulch plug, offering the versatility of collection or mulching. Wheel-height adjusters with seven positions let the operator select multiple cutting heights, and there is a three-position handle adjustment for maximum user comfort. The quick release handle enables compact vertical or horizontal storage.

ECHO’S 58V interchangeable battery system allows one battery to fit multiple tools. So the 4Ah battery that comes with the mower can be used with any of the 58V products in the range, which, together with the mower, comprises a chainsaw, power blower, hedge trimmer and trimmer. ECHO offers a one-year professional use or two-year domestic warranty on the LM-58V4AH, which shows their confidence in the machine, and there is a two-year warranty on all 58V lithium-ion batteries.
