With Summer finally on its way, it is only natural to start thinking about getting your garden ready for family BBQs and weekends spent lazily enjoying the sun (we hope). That’s why we have put together this handy list of the best cordless garden power tools that will help to make those essential gardening jobs a little easier. Not only will these cordless tools offer you more safety when it comes to using them, but their battery-power also provides a more environmentally friendly alternative to classic power-cord models.
Safety first: As we recommend with any piece of powerful equipment, you should always read the instruction manual and test it out slowly and carefully before you start any big jobs.
Top tip: When deciding which cordless garden power tool is right for you, you will need to look for two things:
- The power of the battery is measured in voltage (v), therefore the higher the voltage, the better the power.
- Look out for the amp rating (Ah). This will determine how long the battery will last – the higher the capacity, the better the run time.
One of our favourite cordless garden power tools is the 40v cordless lawnmower from Powerbase that comes with a 35-litre grass collection bag and rear roller for a striped lawn effect.
Battery-powered lawnmowers are excellent for operating seamlessly around your garden, and their compact design means they are easy to store and transport. As well as being cordless, these types of lawnmowers are also incredibly quiet- so you don’t have to worry about disturbing your household or neighbours while you mow.
