Etesia Returns to SALTEX with Green Technology™

Etesia UK returns to IOG SALTEX 2014 after two years absence on stand D35 with a new range of Etesia Green Technology™ products and Pellenc battery powered maintenance tools.

Visitors to the stand will be able to view the new battery powered machines from Etesia which includes the Bahia M2E – the world’s first fully electric ride-on cut and collect mower, the Bahia VTE – an electric tow vehicle, a multi-purpose electric wheel barrow and the range of robotic ETmowers.

Also on the stand will be the full range of Pellenc battery-powered tools which include the Helion hedgecutter, Airion blower, Selion pole and chainsaws, Treelion pruners, Excelion 2000 cow-handled brushcutter and the Excelion 1200 grass strimmer.

Featuring all of the benefits of its petrol ‘brother’ which has made the Bahia a favourite, the Bahia M2E has the advantages of no odour, zero emissions, low noise, low vibrations, reduced maintenance costs and reduced health and safety issues for operators. Cutting and collecting is directly comparable to the petrol version. An optional power converter is also available to power any 220V electric tool below 1000W.

The VTE model of the Bahia electric family is a true multifunctional vehicle that is compact, silent and environmentally-friendly. It offers a professional and original solution for all of your maintenance, work and transport needs throughout the year. It is ideal for movement, towing and working in enclosed spaces where compactness, manoeuvrability, low noise and absence of pollutant emissions are important.

The wheel barrow is a new revolutionary 100% electric wheel barrow, which is available with a range of attachments to tackle a wide variety of jobs. Power comes from a 24V 1000W battery with two forward and two reverse speeds up to 6kp/h which can transport heavy material in the skip section and water or liquid material in the tank section, be used as a raised work bench by folding down the side panels, or transport tools in the tool rack and be used to tip waste material.

The range of four robotic ETmowers, which are available in 44cm, 65cm and 105cm cutting widths cut from 5,000m² up to 20,000m². Robot mowers mow grass areas perfectly without any human intervention and reduce the cost of lawn maintenance considerably, not only in terms of labour and maintenance costs, but also by cutting your energy bill. Mulch mowing is 100% natural: it does away with the need to gather up, store and dispose of the cuttings, it fertilises the soil, and it helps the lawn to stand up to drought conditions.

Pellenc tools can now be seen in every major UK city, as well as the majority of national trust sites around the country. “Most councils and contractors are looking more closely at the lifetime cost of their machinery and not just the initial purchasing cost. Our product is not the cheapest to buy, but if you consider lifetime cost, repairs, maintenance and downtime, the value is there for all to see”.

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. All tools now come with a comprehensive three year warranty.

A range of petrol and diesel Etesia pedestrian and ride-on machines can also be seen by visiting RT Machinery, an Etesia approved dealer, on stand D45.
