The Grass is Growing!

Don’t let the grass grow under your feet this summer! With the joy of the recent rain, soil temperature has increased and our lawns are all on the grow. It seems as though you are always having to trim the grass even after you’ve just mowed the lawn.

Well, here’s a way to keep your lawn neater this summer, easily and in comfort. The Husqvarna 115iL battery-power grass trimmer is the tool to have for garden enthusiasts this summer, thanks to its powerful, brushless motor, almost silent operation, and light-weight but premium construction.

Electric trimmers are  such a hassle to operate, with the long extension cords and heavy motors, but the 115iL does away with all of the fuss.. The 36V battery makes for powerful performance as well as a long operating time, and the operator can also choose between normal or savE™ mode, depending on conditions, for maximum power or maximum runtime. The powerful battery pack is designed for reliable, long-lasting use, and will stand up to being recharged multiple times. Speaking of charging, the 36V battery takes just 73 minutes to charge from empty to full.

The impressive operating time is also due to the highly efficient brushless motor, which has a high torque-to-weight ratio and is also very quiet during operation.

The 115iL is perfect for keeping lawn edges neat, as well as dealing with patches of hard-to-reach grass in your garden. The low weight (just 3.3kg, excluding the battery) and lack of cord make it very portable and easy to use for lengthy periods in the garden, while the quiet operation does away for the need to use hot, cumbersome ear protection and also won’t bother neighbours. And because there’s no petrol engine revving away, there are also no bothersome vibrations that leave your hands tingling at the end of the day.

Despite being so light to operate, the 115iL is fitted with a heavy-duty twin-line cutting system with Tap ‘n Go for quick line feed, and so can deal with tough cutting jobs around the garden or verges.

Other features include an intuitive keypad for safe, convenient starting and stopping, a telescopic shaft for personal fit and a comfortable, adjustable handle. The telescopic handle and low weight also make it as easy to store as it is to use, while the clean nature of battery-powered Husqvarna outdoor power equipment makes it so much tidier to store than any petrol machine.
