GIE+EXPO: Plug In & Charge Up

Last week we took two of our team members to attend the GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky. This event is our industry’s largest showcase and exposition. Everyone from homeowners, equipment dealers, and landscape professionals choose to attend the event. Our idea was simple—let’s send members of our organization who use these products and equipment on a daily basis. They were excited to be able to test out the new equipment and products in the outdoor demo area.

One theme that we noticed this year was a big push towards electric equipment. Many big name manufacturers such as Husqvarna have begun to introduce small, electric-powered equipment aimed at both homeowners and landscape contractors alike. Such equipment includes chainsaws, hedge trimmers, blowers, and self-propelled mowers. Check out the following video from Husqvarna:

We have already added several electric chainsaws to our fleet and plan to test more electric-powered equipment this off-season. If you’re a homeowner and are interested in electric-powered equipment make sure to check with your local dealer or give us a call. As always, if you’re looking for the best landscape contractor in the Oak Ridge/Knoxville area—give us a call at (865) 272-9669. You can request a bid by emailing: info@divlandscape.com
