Oregon offers muscle of gas, benefits of battery power with new 120V Professional Series cordless equipment

Oregon showcased its new 120V Professional Series outdoor power equipment line at GIE+EXPO 2017. This robust series of cordless, battery-powered equipment is engineered with more power than comparable gas-fueled equipment to take landscaping crews to a whole new level of productivity.

In engineering these innovative products, Oregon drew from its more than 70 years of experience helping outdoor professionals get their jobs done. Consolidating extensive input from commercial landscaping crews and experienced industry veterans, Oregon created a suite of tools that meets a demanding set of requirements, including the power to match gas-fueled equipment, offer low noise, and the ability to operate in any kind of weather.

“Oregon has been serving lawn and landscape professionals for decades,” said Josh Huffman, business segment director, outdoor power equipment for Oregon. “We understand the need for cordless products that are powerful enough for heavy commercial work, but also enable crews to operate quietly and with more care for the environment. We’re confident that our new Oregon 120V Professional Series will help extend the work day, reduce downtime, and offer the professional-grade reliability and durability needed to help our customers grow their businesses.”

The Oregon 120V Professional Series is debuting with four pieces of equipment that offer a legitimate cordless alternative to commercial gas tools, delivering more power and torque for professional-grade performance, noise reduction technology, and a low total cost of ownership.

Available for the 2018 season will be:

  • Oregon 120V Professional Series backpack blower
  • Oregon 120V Professional Series string trimmer
  • Oregon 120V Professional Series extended hedge trimmer
  • Oregon 120V Professional Series edger
  • Oregon BX975 and BX650 batteries

All Oregon 120V Professional Series tools are fueled by Oregon’s interchangeable 120V battery platform placing the battery in a backpack-style carrier for reduced tool weight, better maneuverability, and better overall ergonomics for operators. Available in two capacity levels, the BX975 is a 973-watt-hour power pack, while the lighter BX650 still offers a robust 648-watt hours.

The Oregon 120V Professional Series will be available at dealers nationwide in 2018. To learn more, visit www.OregonProducts.com/en/120VProSeries.
