Kress is taking on the mission to end the dependence on fossil fuels.
Revolutionising the lawn and garden maintenance equipment industry while ending the dependence on fossil fuels, Kress has built a long-regarded international reputation for its advanced German engineering under the well-established Positec Group.
The brand’s more-than-60-year history saw the latest major milestone in ending dependence on fossil fuels when Kress launched its 8-minute CyberSystem™, a next-gen battery system that boasts the world’s fastest charging times.
A better future
Kress is leading the global transformation to battery-powered lawn and garden maintenance equipment in a platform that will power a full line of Kress commercial outdoor equipment that includes backpack blowers, grass trimmers, edgers, chainsaws and hedge trimmers, as well as high-quality walk-behind mowers.
With a commitment to a zero-emission future for the landscape maintenance industry, the brand has designed its unique CyberPack™ battery technology to make the transition from petrol to battery-powered OPE sustainable, with benefits for the environment, productivity and the users’ profitability as well.
Until recently, cordless solutions faced limitations due to issues such as extended charging times, reduced power output, relatively short battery life, and high costs. In contrast, petrol-based alternatives were perceived as more cost-effective, powerful and entirely portable.
With the stubborn use of petrol-powered tools still impacting how Australians work, statistics show an hour use of a petrolpowered lawn mower is the equivalent of driving a car for 480km. Not only are petrolpowered products detrimental to the environment, but research shows prolonged exposure to high levels of noise has consequences on both physical and mental health.
Kress has successfully addressed all these challenges through its groundbreaking CyberTank™ System.
Each Kress commercial-grade tool is designed and engineered for heavy-duty use with a high-efficiency brushless motor, state-of-the-art features and powerful performance. There are no more excuses to keep operating noisy, high-cost petrol equipment, or wasting time with cordless battery tools that won’t get the job done.
This innovation not only positions Kress as an environmentally friendly solution, but also enhances its economic advantages for business owners, positively impacting their bottom line as well as increasing productivity with reduced downtime.
To experience the products hands-on and be educated on the features and benefits, Kress held New South Wales-based dealer events in Camden on September 4, 2023, and in Plumpton on September 5, 2023. The two days brought together a number of dealers and landscapers to trial the products and experience the benefits firsthand.
Transitioning to sustainable landscaping will benefit a business in several ways. Not only do Kress tools rival traditional petrol-operated equipment in terms of power, but they also drastically reduce carbon footprint and operating costs with 8-minute fast charging, a market-leading number of battery charge cycles, and a guaranteed ROI for switching to the Kress CyberSystem™ from existing-petrol powered equipment. Kress batteries offer up to tenfold the recharging capacity of lithium-ion batteries.
This technology comes with marketleading commercial warranties of five years for tools and eight years for CyberPack™ batteries and the CyberTank™. For professional landscapers, reliability and peace of mind are everything, and the Kress Commercial range most certainly delivers on that front.
By switching to Kress, landscapers can reduce emissions of toxic pollutants, create a quieter soundscape, save costs on fuel and maintenance, increase productivity with reduced downtime, and ensure better working conditions for their workforce. It’s time to make a positive change.
