MOORESVILLE, N.C., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kobalt brand today announced its entry into the outdoor power equipment category with the spring launch of a new line featuring seven cordless tools − a hedge trimmer, blower, chainsaw, string trimmer/edger, pole saw and two lawn mowers. Exclusively available at Lowe's, Kobalt cordless outdoor power tools all operate off a single, interchangeable, 40-volt lithium ion battery system providing extended runtime and incredible power.
"Kobalt has a history of making tough, reliable tools and the brand's entry into outdoor power equipment is a natural extension that uses purposeful design to simplify outdoor projects," said Reggie Thomas, director of brand management for Kobalt. "These versatile, easy to use tools provide customers with durability and power to complete the job without the hassle of gas-powered tools."
Powerful and easy to use, Kobalt outdoor power equipment is designed with features and performance capabilities to make lawn care easier and more efficient, including a dual-line string trimmer to provide a faster cut, a 250 CFM blower and a hedge trimmer with a maximum cut capacity of three fourths of an inch, all which shorten the time it takes to complete yard work. The tools are easy to start, with no cords to pull. Interchangeable batteries and a quick 60-minute charge time provide nearly infinite runtime, offering homeowners looking to avoid the maintenance of gas-powered tools an ideal option for maintaining their lawns this spring.
