With autumn in full swing, now is the ideal time to prepare for the colder months that follow. Toro, a global leader in turf and landscape maintenance equipment, recently launched the PowerPlex™ family of battery-powered handheld products to help you tackle an untidy garden. Designed for homeowners to make quick work of outdoor cleanup, Toro’s new family of cordless 40V MAX* lithium-ion tools feature an interchangeable T90 battery that charges in just 60 minutes and lasts up to 60 minutes depending on which tool you are using.
To give your outdoor space a new lease of life this autumn, Toro has prepared some tips for getting the best out of your PowerPlex™ products:
1. Clearing away those autumn leaves
At this time of the year, your garden can become overrun by fallen leaves and branches that can impact the quality of your turf, blocking out light and water. That’s why the Brushless DC Blower has been designed to incorporate turbo-boost power functionality with speed lock, meaning you can move more leaves faster. The brushless motor also means that you will experience more power, increased runtime and a longer life than the brushed motor.
2. Manage unruly hedges
Keeping on top of unkempt shrubbery can be a tough task, but it’s vital not to let your bushes get out of control before the winter months to ensure a tidy garden year round. The 61cm hedge trimmer is built with a 90-degree rotating handle, to help you with those tricky to reach branches. With 24” (61cm) hardened steel blades, you’ll make light work of gardening this autumn.
3. Perfect your lawn
It’s no secret that the art to completing a finished lawn lies within its borders. When you’ve finished with the mower, it’s time to pay extra attention to those untidy edges. Both the PowerPlex 33cm string trimmer / edger, and 35cm brushless DC string trimmer feature a variable-speed trigger control to handle various applications, along with a targeted run time of around 40 minutes on a single charge.
Christopher Cooper, Product Marketing Manager from Toro, commented: “Before the nights start drawing in, autumn is the perfect time to do a little work in the garden and get it ready for the cold months ahead. With the new PowerPlex family, we’ve concentrated on providing you with an impressive run time, without compromising on overall performance. Not only will you save time on your gardening, but our high-quality products also carry features that will allow you to finish the job with ease. In addition, the Powerplex range comes with a three-year warranty.”
