Etesia UK announces finance options

Etesia UK has announced affordable lease and hire purchase finance options to allow its customers flexibility when purchasing new Etesia and Pellenc machinery.

Designed to give buyers the power to enjoy their Etesia and/or Pellenc machinery straight away, the easy payment plans are designed to help customers buy or lease the most up-to-date machines that they want without compromising cash flow.

Through Etesia’s finance partners, Timali Finance, they are now able to offer customers a range of finance products, allowing them to spread the capital outlay over three years or less.

Not only will they offer some of the most competitive rates around, but they will also tailor each package to suit your individual budget requirements.

All Etesia and Pellenc machines come with a commercial three year warranty ensuring that during the finance period, customers will have full peace of mind.

If a three year lease package was chosen, there are then four options available to customers after the three year period is over:

Return. Return the products at no extra cost.

Retain. Continue leasing the products.

Renew. Start a new lease agreement with new products.

Recycle. Purchase the products for a nominal fee.

To illustrate, a Pellenc Excelion 2000 ‘Cow-handle’ Brushcutter (with tapcut head), Pellenc Airion Blower, Pellenc Helion Hedgecutter + 75cm cutting blade with a Pellenc ULB110 (1100 Battery) to power all of the tools leased over three years, would cost approx £32.44 per week which is less than most operators would spend on petrol in a week.

You could not only protect the environment by using battery-powered tools, but also protect your finances.

After the three year period, simply choose one of the Return, Retain, Renew or Recycle options.

Commenting on the launch of the Etesia finance options Les Malin, Operations Director for Etesia UK said: “We have looked at the best way to help our customers with the purchase of new machinery. There are plenty of good finance companies in the market but we wanted to offer our customers something different and with some added value.”

New Pellenc Dealer for Hampshire

Mid Hants Mowers become new Pellenc dealer

Etesia, the exclusive distributor of Pellenc battery-powered equipment in the UK, has announced Hampshire based Mid Hants Mowers as a new Pellenc dealer.

Established in 1978, Mid Hants Mowers provide sales, servicing, collection and a break down service for all types of domestic garden machinery, professional ground care and arboriculture tree care. Based at the beautiful Hartley Park Farm in Alton, Mid Hants Mowers has a fully stocked show room with a comprehensive selection of top brand machinery, which is complimented by good honest advice to help you select the right machine to match all your requirements.

The company has gone from strength to strength over the years, with managing directors Saul Ross and Simon Clarke seeing an increase in both members of staff and business. Their success can, in part, be attributed to their forward thinking approach which sees them embracing new technologies such as the Pellenc battery powered products.

After listening to their customers, Saul decided the time was right to introduce the Pellenc brand.

“We’ve been asked about the battery products over and over again and to meet our customers’ needs we actually started stocking some products from another company. These were fine for domestic use but we’ve started kitting out a few professional arborists and the feedback I was getting was that they just were not good enough. They said that they didn’t want twenty batteries to last a day – they wanted one battery to last the whole day without sacrificing on performance. The products we were offering were not commercial products and this is why we chose to bring in Pellenc.”

The addition of the Pellenc range of equipment will present Mid Hants Mowers customers with a lighter, odourless, noise-free and more cost effective alternative to petrol powered machinery. Not only will users see improved performance but they will also be contributing to protecting the environment by reducing the consumption of fossil fuels and noise pollution.

“A lot of our customers work in private schools and orchards so this equipment will be perfect for them. The Pellenc products have clearly been developed for the commercial market and I can’t fault any of them. When you’ve got them in your hands, they just feel like premium products suitable for the commercial market or even for top-end domestic use. In fact we have got a few domestic customers who have been waiting for the products to come in, so I’ll be arranging demos for them straight away.

“Here at Mid Hants Mowers we like to offer something for everybody and this is why we very much go with the good, better and best theory. The intention is to put Pellenc up on the best pedestal because we have every confidence in these products,” said Simon.

Simon has every right to place his confidence in Pellenc: The emergence of Pellenc in the UK over recent years has been phenomenal with over 50 dealers now stocking the battery powered products in various parts of the country.

It certainly is an exciting time for Mid Hants Mowers and Saul believes that green technology will play an even bigger role in the future.

“Green technology is the future without a shadow of a doubt. Simon and I are both fully aware that it is going to take over. We are forward thinking enough to realise that it’s coming and in fact it’s already upon us. More and more contractors are eager to speak about it and we’ve certainly noticed that the ones who are willing to take on these new technologies are the ones who are winning the contracts.”

For further information, please contact Etesia UK on 01295 680120 or visit www.etesia.co.uk where you can also find more information on Pellenc which is sold exclusively in the UK by Etesia UK.

Two new dealerships added to Etesia UK

Etesia UK has added to its ever-growing network of dealers after announcing two new dealerships for Somerset and Northumberland.

Etesia has been leading the way in building high quality grass cutting machinery for both the professional and domestic market since 1989. Over the years the company has grown rapidly and now offers a wide range of products that include a variety of walk-behind, ride-on mowers and the popular Attila range of brush cutters.

With the products in such high demand, Etesia boasts a large dealership network who all provide their customers with innovative solutions to their landscaping requirements. The company has also become a key supplier to local authorities and landscape contractors throughout Europe, and it is for this reason that new dealer Northumbrian Garden Machinery decided to join the vast network.

“We wanted to work with Etesia because we needed a product that was a commercial brand,” said managing director George Aspin. “I first came across Etesia at a previous SALTEX exhibition and then I spoke to a few other dealerships who said that the products were really popular.

“Then by chance, a contractor came in looking to replace his Etesia pedestrian mower and that’s when I saw an opportunity.”

George seized the opportunity and will now sell, service and repair the vast range of Etesia products from his showroom and workshop in Alnwick. A local family business covering Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, Northumbrian Garden Machinery mainly caters for the domestic user.

However, George is seeing an increasing amount of business in the commercial market, and he believes he now has the perfect brand to meet their requirements.

“The Etesia products come with a three year warranty and they’re the Aston Martin of lawn mowers. They are well designed, stand out above the competition and they sell themselves really,” he said.

Tom Williams Garden & Estate Machinery, previous winner of New Etesia Dealer of Year, has also returned to the dealership network after a short absence. Established in 1997, the company specialises in sales, hire, repairs and servicing of garden and estate machinery. Owner Tom Williams is looking forward to building upon a successful first spell.

“It’s good coming back into the Etesia camp after being away for a little while. I’ve always liked the products as they do exactly what they say they will do and will cut and collect in any condition – that’s what makes them stand out for me.
There are a lot of products that are all in the same ball park in terms of price but you could argue that the Etesia products are a lot better than the rest out there.

“Certainly, what we’ve found is that the customers who have bought them previously will buy the same products again – they’re that good.”

Etesia UK Launch Planet Etesia Website to Provide Customer Reviews

Etesia launch customer review website

Etesia UK has announced the launch of a new website – www.planet-etesia.com, which allows visitors to the site to read customer reviews and comment on its extensive range of innovative products.

Etesia has long been impressed by the brand loyalty shown by its customers and it is these customers that have helped the company lead the way in introducing new mowing innovations year on year. A lot of Etesia’s success has been due to word of mouth recommendations from happy customers and now the new Planet Etesia website puts these recommendations all in one place for everyone to see.

With over 100 comments from users across the UK so far, the site promises to be a fantastic resource for both existing and potential Etesia customers as well as other industry professionals. As the exclusive distributor for Pellenc products in the UK, Planet Etesia also gives customers the opportunity to read and contribute reviews from Pellenc’s impressive line-up of technologically advanced battery-powered equipment.

www.planet-etesia.com will also be useful for anyone making machinery purchasing decisions. If you’re torn between a battery-powered or a petrol-powered mower you’ll appreciate the ability to compare independent comments on both technologies. Perhaps you’d like an insight into what venues of a similar size, big or small, are using – or maybe you’re just curious to know what a landscape contractor makes of its mower! What’s more; visitors to the website will be able to locate their nearest Etesia or Pellenc dealer by simply entering their postcode or area.

The website is user friendly with navigation around the site extremely easy. Visitors can simply select the product range they are interested in from the navigation bar which consists of Pedestrian Mowers, Ride-on Mowers, Brushcutters, Pellenc products and ET Mowers. From there they can then browse a number of product reviews.

Planet Etesia offers un-biased, freely submitted comments so for those who are wary of advertising promises.

Commenting on the new Planet Etesia website, operations director Les Malin for Etesia UK said: “We’re pleased with the launch of www.planet-etesia.com – it’s going to be extremely beneficial to our customers. We have our main website of course which does a great job of providing product information but Planet Etesia goes that extra step.

“It’s all very well taking a company’s word that the machines are excellent but in most cases people want to hear from those who regularly use them – the Planet Etesia website does just this. It can help someone make a final decision before purchasing and can also perhaps open their eyes to an alternative they hadn’t previously thought about.”

Etesia UK is encouraging all of their customers to visit the website and add their voice – simply click the ‘add quote’ option to submit your thoughts on your favourite pieces of kit.

In preparation of the autumn fall, Etesia UK has announced a special offer which will enable anyone to get £350 off a brand new Pellenc Airion blower when purchased with a ULB1100 battery. Terms and conditions apply.

The Pellenc Airion blower can be used near noise sensitive areas such as hospitals, schools, camp sites, towns, etc. It is also perfectly suitable as a cleaning tool or roads alongside sweepers at any time of the day and it works just as effectively as a replacement for the traditional sweeper in towns as it does in parks and gardens.

With no more starting problems, no more filling of a petrol tank; your old machinery will belong in the past with the light, odourless and noise-free Pellenc Airion blower.

There are also the fuel savings to consider. 3,000 litres of fuel costs on average £3,900 and using, on average, five litres per day will last 600 days costing an average of £6.50 per day; while a Pellenc battery costs just 85p per day to run.

Etesia’s Robot Mower is The ‘Extra Man’ For Forest Green Rovers FC

Forest Green Rovers praise Etesia ETMower

The new head groundsman at Forest Green Rovers FC, Matt Rainey, has praised Etesia’s ETMower claiming that it is like having an extra member of staff.

Forest Green Rovers FC, based in Stroud, Gloucestershire, is striving to become the most sustainable football club in the world and has already taken measurable steps to ensure this happens: The club is the proud owner of the world’s first organic football pitch, solar power is installed on the stadium roof, every drop of water is recycled via a water harvesting system and the team kit is even washed in phosphate-free washing powder.

As you can imagine – keeping Co2 emissions at an absolute minimum is extremely important to a club like Forest Green Rovers, and this is where Etesia’s ETMower comes in.

The state-of-the-art robotic mower, which is also used by Bayern Munich FC in Germany, considerably reduces the cost of pitch maintenance, not only in terms of labour and maintenance costs, but also by cutting energy bills. Co2 emissions are also much lower than conventional powered petrol/diesel mowers and Matt believes that the machine, who he affectionately calls ‘Mow’, perfectly fits within the club’s philosophy.

“Mow costs us absolutely nothing to use because it simply charges from the solar panels on the roof of the stadium. Energy consumption is kept to a minimum and there’s no fuel or noise to deal with which is a lot better for the environment.

“It also mulches the grass so it means that Mow is putting all the goodness of the grass back into the soil. It ticks every box that we adhere to at the club.”

Matt, who originally started his career at the club, re-joined Forest Green Rovers in July this year and that was when he was first introduced to the ETMower. His relationship with ‘Mow’ got off to the best possible start when he realised that the powerful robotic mower would play a key role in his pre-season preparations.

“Because of ‘Mow’s’ weight, you can cut much earlier in the season compared with any other piece of machinery – potentially up to fourteen days earlier.
“After the pitch has been seeded, you’d normally have to wait until the grass is 40-45mm before physically going onto the pitch with rotary mowers but with ‘Mow’ you can put him on at 20mm. It’s great because it speeds things up, establishes the roots, and it can work in conditions that you can’t. I can’t work in torrential rain for example but ‘Mow’ can.”

As Matt says, the ETMower can work constantly for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year in most weather conditions. Once the area to be covered has been marked out by a low voltage peripheral cable buried in the ground, the ETmower gets to work automatically, according to your programming. No human intervention is required, meaning that groundsmen like Matt have more time to focus on other important tasks.

“Mow is a great tool to have in the shed because it can do things that groundsmen can’t. He also significantly frees up my time. At Forest Green Rovers, we focus on our soil biology so our aeration programme is a lot more intense than others are. Feeding regimes are organic so we are always applying something and then there is the stadium maintenance as well. We’ve also got an outside remit which involves attending to the growth of wildflowers. For a club at our level the ETMower is my extra man – ‘Mow’ is my assistant and he never complains either!”

While ‘Mow’ may not complain, the ETMower does however send you and SMS text message to let you know of any incident it may encounter indicating exactly what the problem is. Also, if it needs to recharge its batteries, it automatically goes to its charging station and resumes mowing once it is fully charged.

There are three models in the range – the ETm44 for work up to 5,000m², ETm65 for work up to 9,000m² and the ETm105 for work up to 20,000m².

Pellenc launch City Cut Brushcutter head

Pellenc has launched the City Cut for use on the Excelion 2000 brushcutter which is particularly suited to the maintenance of urban spaces and weeding without pesticides or projections. Pellenc is exclusively sold in the UK by Etesia UK

The new cutting head completes the range of heads compatible with the Pellenc Excelion 2000 including the Blade Cut, City Cut, Roll Cut, Multi Cut, and Tap Cut options.

The counter-rotation technology, which is exclusive to Pellenc, avoids plant, gravel, stones and debris from projecting and causing damage to surrounding areas. It also meets the “Zero Phyto” charter for alternative weed removal in urban areas making weeding without the use of pesticides extremely easy.

The Excelion 2000 cow-handle brushcutter fitted with the new City Cut head prevents almost 98% of the direct emissions of a petrol engine. Users who decide to recharge Pellenc batteries with the Solerion solar charger see the CO2 emissions totally eliminated, and in addition an important factor for the commercial operator, vibration levels of 2.3ms².

As with all other Pellenc products, the Excelion 2000 uses the ultra-high capacity technology of the Pellenc lithium battery and guarantees non-polluting, odourless operation with quick start-up and up to 4.5 hours of continuous operation.

The Pellenc ULB battery range is designed for professional tool use. ULB batteries allow the user to work for up to a full day on a single charge. Pellenc is the only professional tool manufacturer to offer a whole range of tools that operate with ultra-high capacity multipurpose batteries.

Ideal tools for all situations where noise and emissions are not wanted, Pellenc are used by landscapers and contractors for local garden maintenance, or close to hospitals, cemeteries, schools and other noise sensitive areas.
