The EGO 21 in snow blower is one of only a handful of cordless battery-powered snow blowers. When reading the rave reviews of other EGO products, I had to see how if EGO’s snow blower lived up to the hype! When you live in Michigan, snow comes with the territory due to breezes from the west, over the […]
We were caught off-guard last year when Milwaukee introduced new outdoor power equipment (OPE) products at their 2016 New Tools media event. Milwaukee calls it their New Tool Symposium, but I don’t drink enough Earl Grey tea to call it that. Among the tools announced were a Milwaukee M18 blower, a string trimmer, and a […]
Last year we attended the Husqvarna Silent City 2 event in Sweden. It focused on a discussion of the future of urban parks and landscaping. It attempted to paint a picture of what urban parks and development might look like circa 2030. This Husqvarna Miami 2017 media event was the North America follow-up which brought much of […]
Having grown up on a larger property, dealing with unruly hedges and landscaping became part of my job. I had sisters, and while they were certainly capable, oftentimes the cutting duties fell to me. Had I access to a Worx 56V cordless hedge trimmer back then, my life would have been much easier. What’s really surprising, […]

I remember the first time I saw an electric lawn mower. I scoffed (in my mind) watching the individual struggle with the corded lawn mower. “That wouldn’t be powerful to cut through my thick grass,” I said to myself. I figured that if they did ever make a battery-powered mower with enough strength to cut thick grass, surely […]

There’s simply no question that when you step into the 2016 GIE Show the future is here. Just about everyone was demonstrating a new technology that simply wasn’t possible 10 years ago. We saw battery-powered riding mowers, new oil circulation systems, zero turns with tractor treads, and more. I almost sprained my neck glancing left and […]

At a recent media event in their native Sweden, Husqvarna showed us their latest battery powered outdoor power equipment (OPE). The company wants to create more tools that better care for the environment. They want to reduce atmospheric CO2 but also improve the lives of landscape workers and other people in their immediate area. Working in yards, parks, and […]
There’s more to managing a landscaping project than just sending your crews into the field. Are they on-time? Are they sticking to the prescribed limits for noise levels and vibration? Do you have enough tools in the field or too many? A set of apps, hardware, and sensors makes up the Husqvarna Fleet Services system. It creates a unique […]
