By now you’re probably fully aware of the global computer chip shortage. Many companies and brands were heavily impacted, including AEG and their professional range of 58V Commercial Series Outdoor Power Equipment. Good news though; supply has been restored and they’re back with a full range of 58V cordless landscaping and gardening tools and batteries.
Speaking of batteries … AEG’s proud to announce the launch of their 58V 8.0Ah ULTIMATE HD Battery. These batteries use larger superior 21700 cells to deliver the heavy-duty performance you need ‘out in the field’. They’re an Australian-led development, having been built from the ground up to suit the tough conditions only found in Australia and New Zealand. Kind of like putting premium fuel in your high-performance car.
They have improved overload and high temperature protection electronics that help protect the cells and prolong battery life. Also, the impact resistant polymer housing withstands heavy knocks and drops.
The same garage design as previous models ensure the batteries are secured to the tool even in high vibration applications, while the new sleek and lightweight design (ideal for handheld tools like line trimmers and blowers) has improved durability and lower impedance – and a carry handle.
These new batteries are perfectly suited to work with the innovative Brushless commercial range of 58V tools, like the new 21” Self-Propelled Mower, the Line Trimmer, the 18” Lawn Mower, the 18” bar Chainsaw, the Backpack Blower, Brushcutter, Jet Blower, Hedge Trimmer and Backpack Sprayer.
The 21” Brushless Self-Propelled Mower has variable speed control, a steel deck and 2 active battery ports, so it will automatically swap between batteries when one runs out to effectively double your run time. It’s got a 70-litre lightweight catcher that fills to capacity, too. Plus, one-touch height adjustment and fold down handles so you can store it vertically.
The 18” Brushless Lawn Mower has most of the same features, a side-throw option and a 50-litre catcher.
Featuring a well-balanced ergonomic design for reduced operator fatigue and a straight aluminium split-shaft that accepts other attachments, the 58V Brushless Line Trimmer has a 2-speed switch and variable speed trigger and a wide 43cm cutting path.
There’s also a range of attachments that will fit the 58V Power Head you get from the Line Trimmer. Attachments include: 1000mm Pole Extension, 204mm Edger Attachment, 254mm Pole Saw Attachment and 500mm Articulating Hedge Trimmer Attachment.
With its 650mm dual action blades, the 58V Brushless Hedge Trimmer has a 28mm cutting capacity and ultra quiet performance. Like the hedge trimmer, it’s well suited to the lighter 4.0Ah ULTIMATE battery or for more run-time, the 8.0Ah ULTIMATE HD will last all day!
So is the 18” Brushless Chainsaw with its 21m/s chain speed, tooled chain tensioning system, chain brake, auto oil distribution, metal bucking spikes and on-board tool storage.
Cleaning up after mowing, trimming or using the chainsaw is easy with the 58V Backpack Blower. It’s quieter Brushless motor delivers 700CFM air volume at 260km/h to really get jobs done quickly and can run off 1 or 2 batteries for extended run times.
Or if you prefer the handheld unit, there’s a Brushless Jet Blower that delivers 545CFM at 230km/h to really send debris flying.
Another backpack unit is the 18V/58V Backpack Sprayer with its 15-litre tank, 6” opening, stainless steel wand and brass nozzle. Both backpack units have fully adjustable straps and harnesses for better user comfort.
We reckon it’s been worth the wait to get your hands on this range; they will all soon be available as a kit with the 58V 8.0Ah ULTIMATE HD battery.
