New Etesia dealer in the Scottish Borders

Etesia UK is delighted to welcome Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower Services to its ever-expanding dealer network.

Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower Services, based in Earlston, Scotland, was founded in 1974 by the Cowe family. The business stayed within the family until January 2019 when it was acquired by Pearsons of Duns Ltd, who were picked as the perfect suitors for the business.

It was at this point that the experienced Allen Whellans was appointed as Groundcare Division Manager in a bid to increase the company’s commercial offering. Allen knew immediately where to start.

“In a previous role, I worked with dealers and end-users who had a large fleet of Etesia pedestrian mowers. They always commented on how good they were.” he said. “They never used to have any problems with them - it is that knowledge of knowing what the mowers are capable of doing that confirmed that I wanted to work with Etesia.”

Etesia UK is renowned for providing its dealer network with unrivalled support and resources – and Allen revealed that it was this reputation which further appealed to him.

8588382275?profile=RESIZE_584x“We only deal with premium brands and it was a case of looking at what Etesia offered in terms of the products but also how they work with the dealer,” he said. “Etesia is very much focused on working with dealers as opposed to online discounting. Customers want support and back-up; they want to be able to speak to someone and they want to demo the mowers.

Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower Services and Etesia have the same ethos - we want to work together for the customer – and that is the sort of partnership we are looking for.”

With immediate effect, the range of Etesia pedestrian mowers will be available from Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower Services throughout the Lothians and the Scottish Borders.

Etesia pedestrian mowers have been providing absolute efficiency, excellent ergonomics and top-quality standards. The pedestrian mowers are designed to offer unique cutting capabilities, comfort and safety at work and unrivalled reliability and productivity.

Etesia’s reputation for excellence in mowing performance has been supported by each of the 12 product families, and the qualities of ruggedness, reliability, user-friendliness, and innovation have become synonymous with Etesia.

“I particularly like the fact that they can cut and collect long wet grass,” continued Allen. “The Borders are lush areas and there is always lots of thick wet grass. The fact that that operators can get out and cut in all conditions, even in the rain, is going to be fantastic for our customers.

“These Etesia mowers just go that extra mile and therefore I am confident that they are going to significantly grow our attraction to commercial customers.”

The herringbone laterals because it cuts across the slope will have a shallower fall and thus presumably a slower flow rate compared to the long straight length that runs to the soakaway. Would that…"

"The herringbone pattern is more complicated and slower to install than a grid pattern and the grid is much quicker and easier to install and you can easily fit silt traps to it. And it's also cheaper."

"Why don't you spray off the lawn and rotovate it one the grass/weeds have died?
It would save a skip and around 24 man hours!"

First post, so I'll start by saying hello: Hello!I have been asked to install a land drain under a lawn by a client. I have only previously installed herringbone patterns, but this is often governed by the shape of the land. In this instance however…
