It’s not just about the cost saving of not having to buy fuel, there are also maintenance costs that can be saved. With petrol equipment there are many parts that can break, such as spark plugs, fuel filters, carburettors, air filters, drive belts and starter cords. There are also many potential issues around mixing fuel for 2-stroke engines, missing the exact ratio and forgetting to add engine oil. These can all be costly issues.
Alternatively, MX FUEL™ is powered by a POWERSTATE™ brushless electric motor. The Electric motors do not need a lot of maintenance, as they have very few wearing parts and compared to a petrol engine, there is no risk of incorrect usage or maintenance.
The cordless revolution is just beginning for the light equipment market. Continued investments in cordless technology are now unlocking the capability to eliminate emissions and reduce the noise, vibration, petrol maintenance and overall risks associated with current petrol and power-corded light equipment—profoundly impacting the End User’s safety and productivity.
