Innovation for a greener tomorrow

Sustainable landscaping and tree care made possible with Kress battery-powered tools

In the Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE) industry, Kress has pioneered high-performing battery-powered tools for over five decades. Since its inception in 1966, Kress has been committed to steering clear of petrol-powered products, and today, it continues to lead the charge towards a greener, more sustainable future.

With the stubborn use of petrol-powered tools still impacting how Australians work, statistics show an hour’s use of a petrol-powered lawn mower is the equivalent of driving a car for 480km. Not only are petrol-powered products detrimental to the environment, but research shows prolonged exposure to high levels of noise has consequences on both physical and mental health. 

Unlike traditional brands that are adding battery models to their core fossil fuel OPE ranges prompted by a growing environmental consciousness, Kress has been providing battery-powered equipment exclusively for almost a century. Spearheading the shift from petrol-powered outdoor equipment, Kress has introduced a full line of commercial tools, including chainsaws, grass trimmers, brush cutters, edgers, hedge trimmers, mowers and a powerful 35N backpack blower.

Benefit from Kress-built brushless motors, providing more power, longer runtime, and an extended lifespan. The ergonomic design, low vibration and side chain tension with dual bar studs ensure comfortable and prolonged operation without fatigue, even in poor weather conditions.

Power, precision and sustainability: Kress KC 300.9 Commercial 60V 40cm Chainsaw

At the heart of Kress’ commitment to sustainability is its revolutionary KC 300.9 Commercial 60V 40cm Chainsaw. Boasting Kress-built brushless motors, this chainsaw delivers unmatched power, longer runtime, and an extended lifespan. The KC300.9 features a 24 m/s chain speed, an Oregon™ 0.325 lp chain and a magnesium chain cover for maximum optimised chip discharge.

The ergonomic design, low vibration, and side chain tension with dual bar studs ensure that commercial landscapers and tree care professionals can operate comfortably and efficiently, even in adverse weather conditions. 

With an impressive 8-minute charge time* and a remarkable battery lifespan of 3,000 charge cycles, this chainsaw is powerful, enduring, and well-balanced with low vibration, which allows comfort and longer periods of operation without fatigue.

Say goodbye to starting concerns with intermittent use – the Kress KC300.9 Chainsaw ensures smooth, fast, and efficient cutting. The revolutionary CyberSystem™ battery and charging system, coupled with IPX4 water resistance, make it an ideal choice for tree care as well as storm damage recovery.

Exclusively available through the authorised Kress Dealer network, the KC 300.9 Commercial 60V 40cm Chainsaw is engineered to meet the demands of top-tier professionals. Its brushless motor, a hallmark of Kress technology, provides not only superior performance but also contributes to reduced environmental impact.

Landscaping activities may be needed under any weather condition. To make this possible, Kress has introduced two indispensable tools for professionals – the KC170.9 Commercial 60V 42cm Brush Cutter and the KC200.9 Commercial 60V 63cm Hedge Trimmer.

The Kress-built brushless motor provides exceptional power levels that will rival petrol-powered products. With a revolutionary battery and charger CyberSystem™, there are no concerns about downtime, or being short on power for those longest hedge rows. IPX4 water resistance ensures the weather will not interrupt your hedge-trimming operations.

Revolutionising brush cutting: KC170.9 Commercial 60V 42cm Brush Cutter

Kress has once again raised the bar in the realm of commercial brush cutters with the ground-breaking KC170.9. Unveiling the revolutionary CyberPack™ battery solution, this brush cutter redefines industry standards by delivering the equivalent power of a 30cc petrol unit. What sets it apart is the remarkable 8-minute CyberSystem™ charging system*, guaranteeing a consistently reliable power supply for lawns of all sizes. This innovation not only showcases the brand’s commitment to cutting-edge technology but also eradicates the dependence on traditional petrol sources.

The KC170.9 boasts a brushless motor, built-in LED control panel, quick-load trimmer line capability, 3-speed settings and IPX4 water resistance features, combining to create a robust and durable solution suitable for projects of varying sizes and under diverse weather conditions. The inclusion of an adjustable magnesium tower set elevates user control, ensures optimal comfort during operation, and facilitates compact storage, setting an entirely new benchmark for commercial brush cutting efficiency.

Unlocking the true potential of these cutting-edge tools is the Kress 8-minute CyberSystem™, presenting users with up to 10 times the battery life, double the power output and absolute zero downtime. This significant leap towards zero-emission tools is strengthened by Kress’ market-leading commercial extended warranties – an impressive 5 years for tools and an unprecedented 8 years for both CyberPack™ batteries and the CyberTank™.**
