Petrol Garden Tools Or Electric Garden Tools?

Petrol Garden Equipment Or Electric?

Although most garden tools are now available as either gas or electric most domestic gardeners still opt for electric garden equipment over petrol.

There are a number of reasons for this.

For the home gardener the first consideration when buying a new piece of gardening equipment is likely to be cost. The initial outlay to purchase a petrol model will certainly be considerably more than for electric.

With petrol garden tools the user has to fill them with fuel and a lot of people don’t really like doing this. Also there is the issue of storing fuel somewhere safe, and the possibility of running out half way through a job. Electric garden tools are simpler in this respect as you just plug them in and go. They are also a lot easier to start.

So if electric tools are so great why is it that professional gardeners almost always chose petrol garden tools?

First and foremost they regard them as a better investment in the long term. They have to pay a lot more for them but they know that they will last a great deal longer than an electric model if properly looked after and maintained. In short they are going to get a better return for their money.

Petrol garden tools are totally portable and can be used anywhere. In a large garden you may be working a long way from any source of electricity, but with a petrol tool this is not a problem. They can be used in most weather conditions too. Another important factor for professional gardeners is how powerful the tool is and whether it will be up to the heavier jobs. They cannot afford to have a piece of equipment let them down as it could prove very expensive for them in lost time. There can also be some pretty tough jobs in a domestic garden too so this is an area where petrol garden tools are clearly better.

So next time you are thinking about an item of garden equipment it may well be worth looking at petrol models as well as electric. For some jobs of course it would simply not be worth the extra outlay. If you are using a tool only a few times a year its probably not worth going for petrol. For other items though it is definitely worth checking out both before deciding.…
