The great philosopher Immanuel Kant’s categorical imperative states that you should “act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law.” And although it seems unlikely that this pillar of modern thought had gardening in mind when he made this proposal, the same rule applies to lawn maintenance in residential areas, where the noise and emissions produced by petrol mowers and trimmers can often be a source of neighbourly strife. As such, it is always best to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
This is why Husqvarna’s 136LiL battery grass trimmer is an essential purchase for the urban gardener; powerful and mobile but cheaper to run and maintain than a petrol trimmer, the 136LiL is also superbly quiet running and produces zero emissions. This means that you can go about your business neatening edges and other hard to reach parts of your lawn on a lazy Sunday without having to worry about disturbing those around you. Key to this is the 136LiL’s 36V motor, powered by a long-life Li-ion battery. This is complemented by Husqvarna’s ‘savE’ power saving system, which extends the battery time in less demanding conditions to offer increased run time between charges.
Easy to operate thanks to an intuitive control panel and a perfectly balanced build, the 136LiL also features a tough nylon line trimmer head with a 33cm cutting width for added efficiency when trimming edges, borders and areas of lawn inaccessible to a conventional lawnmower. Moreover, a convenient ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system is included for quick and simple line advancement; simply tap the trimmer head against the ground to cut the line to an optimal working length. Thus, Husqvarna’s quiet running and powerful 136LiL is the perfect machine for anyone seeking a great way of maintaining a pristine lawn while also being a good (and quiet) neighbour.
The battery and charger are not included and can be purchased seperately.
Husqvarna recommend the BLi150 battery and QC120 charger.
