525DEPS MADSAW™ From Husqvarna
The MADSAW™ professional pole saw is designed with operator safety in mind, as it’s the first and only dielectric gas-powered pole saw individually tested to meet the OSHA standard for electric power generation, transmission, and distribution (OSHA 1910.269). (MAD is a commonly used industry term, an acronym for OSHA’s Minimal Approach Distances.) The MADSAW™ offers insulation to prevent electrical conductivity and extreme versatility with the ability to be operated aloft in a bucket, in-tree, as well as on the ground. Two available lengths make it easier for operators to access hard-to-reach areas. Additionally, the MADSAW™ provides innovative storability; a purposefully designed dielectric midsection can disconnect from the cutting head and powerhead, giving the operator the option to store the tool safely, in multiple locations within a utility or arborist truck.

36V Brushless Blower From Makita
Part of the Connector Series, the 36V Brushless Blower (CBU01Z) provides improved balance and reduced weight. By relocating the battery connection to an external source, the blower weighs less. The motor delivers up to 622 CFM and 157 MPH to move heavy debris. The blower delivers up to 80% more blowing force than a gas blower (when compared to Makita® model BHX2500CA). The cruise control lever with variable speed trigger adjusts between 0 and 530 CFM, and a speed lock provides continuous operation. The 3-stage telescoping nozzle features a downward end point to provide powerful air flow and reduce arm fatigue. Exclusive Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), a protective seal inside the tool, is engineered to channel water and dust from key internal components.

HT2501 Hedge Trimmer From EGO
EGO introduces its new HT2501 hedge trimmer. With a 25″ long bar, it handles deep hedges with ease. But what really sets this trimmer apart is the user’s ability to rotate the bar 180˚ with five distinct stops along the way. The high efficiency brushless motor is powered by EGO’s top rated 56V arc lithium battery, which provides the power and performance of gas without noise, fuss, or fumes. The HT2501 trims hedges of all thicknesses thanks to its 1.25″ cut capacity with dual action steel blades that cut at 3200 SPM. Run time with the included 2.5 ah battery is 60 minutes. Recharge time is 50 minutes with included charger. The gearbox is serviceable. Warranty is 5 years on the tool/3 years on the battery.
FSA 135 & 135R Trimmers From STIHL
Part of the new STIHL 135 professional battery platform, the FSA 135 and FSA 135 R battery-powered trimmers are assembled in America and are game changers for professional landscapers. The trimmers feature an on-board battery slot that can support both an on-board battery or a backpack battery for even longer run times. Paired with a brushless motor and the same drive and cutting components used in STIHL professional gas trimmers, these units deliver professional cutting performance and weight comparable to STIHL gas units with zero exhaust emissions and low noise. These trimmers are versatile for different cutting applications, including trimming, cutting, and weed clearing.
