Go Greener – Go Cordless

Cordless garden power tools should be more universal, with more of us electing to use them over those we’ve been traditionally been using over the years. The likes of two-stroke engine-powered chainsaws and wind-blowers, and other traditional garden power tools have definitely served us well over the years they’ve been in use, but going greener with battery-operated advancements is overdue.

Good preparation for upcoming regulation enforcement

The environmental effects of climate change have long since become visibly apparent and while many may argue that it’s too late to start taking some real action, that is indeed the only course of action remaining. At some point we’re all going to have to start taking the kind of responsibility aimed at ultimately reversing the adverse effects of our collective way of life that is harmful to the environment.

Inevitably, it’s going to become a matter of the regulations being enforced legally, so going greener right now is a good way to prepare for the inevitable. As per the economic laws of supply and demand, now is the time to take advantage of the existing selection of great cordless, battery-operated garden tools available, including cordless lawn mowers, strimmers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, leaf blowers, etc.

Although new-paradigm tech generally gets cheaper with the passage of time, you’d be doing your pockets a favour investing in it right now as it’ll definitely go through a period of some general price-hikes when it’s the only option available in the coming future.

Early adoption will help the green energy market develop faster

As mentioned, there are some leading manufacturers and retailers who have a great selection of high-quality cordless, battery powered garden tools, but wider adoption at this stage will only help to develop the green energy market faster and further. More manufacturers will move towards investing in the development of this greener, cleaner tech if more people are adopting it.

Cordless garden tools are greener and more practical

So up until now the reference to cordless garden tools being greener has perhaps been an implicit one, particularly those that are battery-powered. It is indeed the main reason why battery-powered tools should be more universal and why you and everyone else should be actively making an effort to move towards using them. That’s not where it ends, however, as there are practicality connotations attached to the use of battery-powered, cordless garden tools.

Take something like a petrol-powered leafblower compared to one that’s powered by a lithium battery, for instance, and in practice it becomes clear that the battery-powered one is more practical. In addition to not having to worry about staying out of the burnt fuel exhaust path (direct health and safety risk), the battery-powered variety of the same power tool inherently comes with less post-purchase and in-deployment service requirements. You can get the job at hand done much quicker, because you’ll work more efficiently knowing that you’re on a specific per-charge time-bracket and there’s also no need to stop, refuel and perhaps even take a break to let the would-be two-stroke engine cool off.

So it’s about more than just going cordless, but rather going cordless and greener.
