  • Cordless Technology a better fit for hire than ever before

    Never before has the forestry industry had such a variety of equipment available to it. As battery performance has evolved, there are now cordless versions of virtually all main tool types and they are becoming more and more sought after. And it’s simple to see why.


    Not only does cordless technology match, or in some cases better, the performance of many petrol or diesel powered tools for example, but a battery-powered system has fewer moving parts, helping tools to become cheaper and simpler to run, as well as reducing servicing and machinery downtime, which all helps to increase profits. In addition, cordless technology is now so quiet in operation that ear defenders are not always required, keeping any disruption to an absolute minimum.


    Putting noise reduction and simple maintenance aside, cordless technology can go a long way in helping reduce carbon footprint. The UK maintains strict engine emission guidelines on Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) to limit air pollution from the likes of chainsaws, with plans in place to bring in more stringent legislation in 2018. With this in mind, the use of battery-powered products can have a significant impact on the long-term environmental protection of your surrounding work environment and ensure even the toughest emissions regulations are met.


    Offering exceptional performance, ease of maintenance and use, quiet operation and carbon footprint reduction, cordless technology offers the forestry industry more options than ever before.
