Glendale Adds 100 Etesia Pedestrian Mowers to Fleet

National green services company, Glendale, has recently added 100 Etesia PRO 46 pedestrian mowers to its fleet – reinforcing its reputation of using the best machines on the market for each task.

In 2015 Glendale celebrates a milestone anniversary – it is 25 years since the commencement of its first contract. The 25th anniversary represents remarkable longevity, sustainability and success. Part of this success lies in Glendale’s commitment to using the finest equipment in order to carry out work to the highest standard. It is for this reason that the company has chosen to work with Etesia UK as its preferred partner for pedestrian rotary mowers.

Glendale’s recent purchase of 100 machines consists of 60 PRO 46 PBE’s and 40 PRO46 PBTS’s. Designed to meet the rigours of a wide variety of commercial grass cutting applications, Etesia’s PRO 46 pedestrian rotaries are fast becoming the number one choice for landscapers and contractors who want durable machines without compromising on performance.

The Single bladed Etesia PRO 46 PBE push and PRO 46 PBTS self-propelled models have a 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine. Cutting width is 46cm, the detachable grass box which has an indicator to let the operator know when it is full, has a capacity of 52 litres and the overall weight is just 37kg; making the machine easy to manoeuvre.

To enhance the operator’s ease of use, the handlebars are ergonomically shaped and mounted with new ‘soft-touch’ controls reducing pressure on hands and fingers of operators. Extensive testing of these latest models has shown low vibration levels that meet stringent health and safety guidelines.

Stuart Darbyshire, Commercial Director at Glendale said: “These two models of Etesia mowers have been used by Glendale for a number of years and provide a high quality, durable and good value machine for the task they are required to complete.”

All the way from the Highlands of Scotland to the tip of Cornwall, Glendale operates in England, Scotland and Wales and Etesia’s mowers will be used at operational contracts in all three parts of the UK. The machines will be used daily on the various mowing rounds to both back up larger ride-on machines and to fully cut areas with difficult access, something which Stuart is particularly impressed with.

“The nature of these machines means that they can both collect and drop, giving us the flexibility to do either with just one machine.

“Glendale has had worked with Etesia for over 10 years, and has bought their pedestrian rotary mowers for much of that period with approximately 300 working in the company today.

“The deal with Etesia underlines our commitment to use only the highest quality machinery.”

Etesia UK Announces West Midlands Pellenc Dealer

New Pellenc Dealer for West Midlands

Etesia UK, the exclusive distributor of Pellenc battery-powered equipment in the UK, has announced Midlands Groundscare Machinery (MGM) as the new Pellenc dealer for the West Midlands area.

MGM, a new independent groundscare company based in Solihull, was formed by the experienced Dave Tullett who has worked within the groundscare industry for over 27 years. A fully qualified BAGMA instructor and assessor and experienced agricultural engineer, Dave is keen to use his knowledge and expertise to provide trustworthy, professional advice and support when sourcing new equipment or providing high quality servicing and maintenance.

New Pellenc DealerIt is safe to say that Dave understands the market extremely well and knows what brands of machinery his customers will want to see at his Depot in Knowle. The addition of the Pellenc range of equipment, including battery powered chainsaws, hedge trimmers and brushcutters, will present MGM’s customers with a lighter, odourless, noise-free and more cost effective alternative to fuel based 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.

Dave is further embracing Etesia’s green technology philosophy by also selling Etesia’s battery powered range of products including ride-on mowers, pedestrians, brushcutters and the ground-breaking range of robotic ETmowers. Labelled by some as the future of mowing, Dave is pleased that MGM are already on-board.

“There are definitely more industry professionals choosing to use electric and battery powered products as opposed to fuel based ones. Perhaps there is a realisation that a reliance on fossil fuels is not always going to be possible.
“These battery powered products not only provide the operator with more comfort and less vibration but they are also healthier. Let us not forget about the savings either. Five litres of fuel will cost on average £6.50 per day whilst a Pellenc battery powered product works out at about 85p per day. That’s a significant amount of savings over a long period of time,” he said.

In the last five years, Pellenc has gained market recognition by offering a unique range of ‘zero emission’ battery-powered handheld tools, thanks to the development of Lithium-ion ultra-high performance batteries. The emergence of Pellenc in the UK has been quite phenomenal with over 50 Etesia dealers now stocking Pellenc machinery in various parts of the country.

Cut, Collect and now Stripe with Etesia

Etesia launch rear roller for perfect lawn striping

The professional’s choice in cut and collect rotary mowers has just got better with the addition of an Etesia rear roller kit for easy effortless striping.

Etesia pedestrian mowers have become world renowned for cutting and collecting in all weather conditions – even the wet, but before now were not available with a rear roller kit for that all important presentation.

The first Etesia model available with the rear roller kit is the range of 41cm cutting width Duocut machines which are now able to cut, collect, stripe and by fitting the mulching insert, mulch – making this particular range of rotary mowers a must in anyone’s armoury. Rear roller kits to fit the 46cm cutting width models, which are Etesia’s most popular models, will be available soon.

No tools are required to fit the roller kits to an Etesia machine – just simply hang the free floating roller on two locating pins behind the grass box. Weighing 9kgs, the roller has been designed so that it will operate free-floating at any height the machine is mowing at – ensuring perfect striping no matter the weather or height of cut required.

“We’ve been asked if we could add a rear roller to our pedestrian mowers for as long as I can remember and I am thrilled that we now can,” said Les Malin, operations director at Etesia UK. “Our products are known to be robust and innovative but we have seen a number of our customers adding their own roller kits, which wasn’t ideal. This new rear roller kit will open our machines up to a whole new market where presentation of pitches or lawns is vitally important.”

Etesia Offer Three Year Warranty on All Machines

Etesia has announced that all pedestrian, ride-on and brushcutter models will now carry a three year warranty as standard for domestic use, and a two year warranty for commercial use.

“We have always built mowers of exceptional quality, and have total confidence in every machine that comes out of the factory. That’s an easy thing to say, but to back it up with a warranty is quite a different matter,” said Etesia UK operations director Les Malin.

“Most councils and mowing contractors have been looking more carefully at the lifetime cost of their machinery and not just the initial purchase price. Our product is not the cheapest to buy, but if you consider life cost, repairs, maintenance, downtime and now the new extended warranty, the value is easy to see”.

Favoured by many, Etesia has gained a reputation for producing pedestrian and ride-on mowers that are highly reliable with low maintenance, making them the number one choice for many users.

Last year also saw Pellenc announcing that all battery-powered tools come with a three year warranty as standard. Pellenc can now be seen in every major UK city, as well as the majority of national trust sites around the country.

In the last five years, Pellenc has gained market recognition by offering a unique range of ‘zero emission’ battery-powered handheld tools, thanks to the development of Lithium-ion ultra-high performance batteries. This technology, which is exclusive to Pellenc, allows for a drastic reduction in the production of greenhouse gases and noise pollution. It is also comfortable for users, meets new sustainable development demands and offers excellent economic profitability.

Pellenc is exclusively distributed in the UK by Etesia UK.

Three New Dealers for Etesia UK

Etesia continues to spread its wings to every corner of the UK after announcing another three dealers to its growing network.

Specialists in building high quality grass cutting machinery for both the professional and domestic market, Etesia’s extensive range of products are in high demand. It is for this reason that the company’s vast dealer network continues to grow. From the UK to Ireland, Etesia dealers are providing their customers with innovative solutions to their landscaping requirements.

Midlands Grounds Machinery (MGM), based in Solihull, will be Etesia UK’s recognised dealer for the West Midlands area. Offering professional support, sales and servicing for a wide range of lawnmowers and groundscare equipment, MGM was seen as a perfect fit for Etesia.

As well as selling Etesia’s walk-behind range, ride-on mowers and the popular Attila brush cutters, MGM has also embraced Etesia’s green technology ethos and will be stocking their range of robotic ETmowers.

Managing director, Dave Tullet, has worked within the groundscare industry for over 27 years and is optimistic about working with Etesia.

“We wanted to invest in serious, market leading machinery and Etesia seemed the perfect choice to offer our customers. They want quality machines and Etesia provides them with this. Having been in the industry a long time now, I’m confident that the Etesia range will be a great addition to MGM’s range of machinery and services.

“I’m particularly optimistic about the ETmowers. Not only will they be appealing to the commercial market but Solihull is an affluent area and the robotic mowers will be sought after for those large domestic gardens where they can take out the laborious chore of mowing whilst still providing a superior cut. They are also great for the environment.”

Revill Mowers, recently formed by Russell Revill and his nephew Jason, is the newly appointed Etesia dealer for Gloucestershire. Both Russell and Jason are trained mechanics and the family-run business will also be benefitted by Russell’s previous experience of dealing with Etesia.

“I’ve been dealing with Etesia for the past 20 years now and I used to sell the very first Hydro 100’s, which became the industry trend setter. That has continued over the years with everyone else copying various Etesia models.
“When we first set-up the company I was adamant that I wanted to be able to offer them to our customer base. A lot of our customers have dated machines, 10 or 15 years old now, so I’m hoping to convince them that they should be replaced with Etesia machines! They certainly won’t regret it,” said Russell.

Allans of Gillock will be covering the expansive area of Northern Scotland, offering Etesia machines to customers as far as the Orkney and Shetland Islands. The company, which has built a great reputation since being founded in 1980, believe that becoming an Etesia dealer is a step in the right direction.

“Up until now it is fair to say that we have mainly catered for the domestic market but we are looking to reach more into the commercial side of things. We wanted to have a slightly more upmarket range of machines available and this is where Etesia comes in. They are renowned for their quality and I believe this is the next step to where we are wanting to go,” said general manager Alan Gair.
