The new Kress 8-Minute CyberSystem™ has unlocked the true potential of Battery Power

Original source: FocusOn Landscapers


Kress is leading the transition from gas-powered commercial lawn equipment for professional operations with the introduction of the industry's first true game-changing innovation in battery-powered equipment.

Kress has changed all of that: now commercial landscapers and facilities managers can even save money and time by switching from gas to battery power. Based on the current price of gas, a typical landscaping business can recoup the entire purchase price of their Kress battery-powered equipment in less than one season. Kress offers lawncare professionals the opportunity not only to save the planet, but to save money as well.

"Our new Kress battery technology will ignite a dramatic shift in the professional outdoor power equipment industry that has been dominated by loud, dirty gas-powered tools and equipment for the past 50 years," says Don Gao, Chairman and CEO of Positec Group, the parent company of Kress. "The revolutionary, new Kress battery charges to 80 percent capacity in only five minutes, provides 10 times more re-charges than current lithium-ion batteries and produces the power and performance that meets or exceeds that of comparable combustion gas-engines. In the time it takes for a short water break, lawncare professionals now can rest assured that their fuel supply – the new powerful, proprietary Kress batteries – will be re-charged and ready to go. No wasted down time, more productivity and more profits for our customers – that's what Kress is all about."

As a part of the well-established Positec family of leading brands, Kress has built a reputation for advanced German engineering and has been recognized for designing and manufacturing electric motors for over 50 years. Today, the Kress brand unveils its new line of professional outdoor power equipment which is powered by its exclusive cordless battery technology — specifically designed for commercial lawn-care professionals — that will forever eliminate the need for petrol equipment.

The Kress battery technology explained

The new commercial Kress 8-minute Cybersystem™ battery platform was engineered and designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of commercial landscapers. The system features both 4Ah and 11Ah battery packs with the ability to recharge each 60v battery pack to 100% charge in only 8 minutes or 80% charge in 5 minutes, the fastest re-charge of any commercial battery system available.

Due to its proprietary battery cell technology, each 60v Cyberpack battery is capable to produce up to twice the power output of standard lithium-ion batteries. The added power output allows Kress outdoor power equipment to meet or exceed the same performance as comparable commercial gas-powered machines but with less noise and zero harmful emissions. In addition, the Kress Cyberpack battery can be re-charged thousands of times - up to 10 times more than standard lithium-ion batteries.

The extended battery life supports multiple re-charges per day and greatly reduces the cost of replacement battery packs over the life of the equipment. The Kress 8-minute™ Cybersystem is the first and only cordless battery power supply that will allow commercial landscapers to finally replace their expensive gas-powered equipment without sacrificing performance, power or runtime.

The new Kress 8-minute Cybersystem battery platform will power a full line of Kress professional outdoor equipment that includes commercial-grade backpack and handheld blowers, grass trimmers, edgers, chainsaws and hedge trimmers, as well as heavy-duty walk-behind commercial mowers. Each Kress commercial-grade tool is designed and engineered for heavy-duty use with a high-efficiency brushless motor and state-of-the-art features and performance. There are no more excuses to keep operating noisy, high-cost gas equipment or wasting time with cordless battery tools that won't get the job done.

Launch information and Dealer inquires

Kress will introduce the brand's complete line of commercial-grade equipment and revolutionary battery technology in North America in Q4 2022 in conjunction with the International Equip Exposition (formerly GIE). Kress is positioned to become a powerhouse in producing professional-grade, cordless outdoor power equipment as it partners with leading equipment dealers in the United States and Canada.
