Etesia UK Announces West Midlands Pellenc Dealer

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.

It 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.

Yes, the Garden Planner is truly a simple software compared to Sketchup (I like to call it Ketchup! ((~8). I can easily see why you wouldn't use it after getting established with Sketchup. I wouldn't even say it has plant lists, just genera…"
