Ten Etesia UK dealers have recently visited Pellenc’s state-of-the-art facilities in Pertuis, France to reward them as the ten best performing dealers for the range of environmentally friendly battery-powered equipment.

After arriving in Marseilles, the delegates were driven to Pertuis and given a presentation of the company and told how Etesia and Pellenc had come to work together before they set off on a tour of the impressive R&D department, which has seen over 850 patents registered. Next up was a tour of the factory including production, assembly line and distribution centre which totalled 135,000 work hours in 2013.

The second day gave everyone the chance to test out the equipment before departing for a boat trip seeing some of the country’s coastal sights.

Pellenc’s zero emission concept offers a full range of truly professional handheld power tools are powerful, silent and emission-free thanks to the lithium-ion technology and ‘brushless’ electric motors which are patented to the company.

These environmentally-friendly tools are now offered with a three year commercial warranty as standard – the first manufacturer to offer this.

Employing 1,150 people, Pellenc has 15 subsidiaries in France and further afield with a presence in 50 countries. 800 distributors take care of over 50,000 customers worldwide. In the UK, Pellenc tools can be seen in every major city, as well as the majority of national trust sites around the country.

Chris Harris of Surrey Power said: "It was very interesting and surprising too - I never realised just how big the Pellenc operation was."

Richard Taylor of RT Machinery also commented: “I was amazed at the sheer scale of the operation – from the R&D department, which invests a considerable amount of profit back into the development of new products, to the assembly line. The agricultural equipment was also very impressive."

Etesia UK general manager Les Malin said: "We are very proud of our relationship with Pellenc and have gained recognition with local authorities, landscapers, contractors as well as groundsmen and greenkeepers who are now looking at environmentally-friendly products. To be able to show our dealers just how much effort goes into manufacturing this equipment, and to get their feedback, is invaluable."

"They did do a 1.1 but as I said, the "cutters" are too wide and foul part of the saw.

"I got some from https://www.ukcustomcovers.com on their eBay shop for my bench seat set up van and they are still ok 2.5 years later if not a little grubby and dusty. Fit well for all the bits around the seats and folding areas"

"No clue I’m afraid - I purchased whatever was listed on their website for my ground saws and they fit. 
Our pole pruners stay sharper for much longer than the ground saws (ms280 and ms360) as they aren’t used anywhere near the ground and are always…"
