Established in 1978 and based at Hartley Park Farm in Alton, Mid Hants Mowers provides sales, servicing, collection and a break down service for all types of domestic garden machinery, professional ground care and arboriculture tree care.

Managing directors Saul Ross and Simon Clarke decided it was time to introduce the Pellenc brand after feedback from customers.

Ross explained: "We've been asked about the battery products over and over again and to meet our customers' needs we actually started stocking some products from another company. These were fine for domestic use but we've started kitting out a few professional arborists and the feedback I was getting was that they just were not good enough.

"They said that they didn't want twenty batteries to last a day – they wanted one battery to last the whole day without sacrificing on performance. The products we were offering were not commercial products and this is why we chose to bring in Pellenc."

The addition of the Pellenc range of equipment will present Mid Hants Mowers customers with a lighter, odourless, noise-free and more cost effective alternative to petrol-powered machinery, while reducing their consumption of fossil fuels and noise pollution.

Green technology is "without a shadow of a doubt" the future of the industry, Ross added.

"Simon and I are both fully aware that it is going to take over. We are forward thinking enough to realise that it's coming and in fact it's already upon us.

"More and more contractors are eager to speak about it and we've certainly noticed that the ones who are willing to take on these new technologies are the ones who are winning the contracts."

Clarke said many of the company's customers work in private schools and orchards so the equipment will be perfect for them.

"The Pellenc products have clearly been developed for the commercial market and I can't fault any of them. When you've got them in your hands, they just feel like premium products suitable for the commercial market or even for top-end domestic use. In fact we have got a few domestic customers who have been waiting for the products to come in, so I'll be arranging demos for them straight away.

"Here at Mid Hants Mowers we like to offer something for everybody and this is why we very much go with the good, better and best theory. The intention is to put Pellenc up on the best pedestal because we have every confidence in these products."
