Pellenc is Grade A at Marchmont House
A range of Pellenc battery-powered equipment is helping to maintain the grounds at one of Scotland’s grandest mansions.
Marchmont House is a ‘Grade A’ listed Palladian mansion in Berwickshire built in 1750 by Hugh Hume-Campbell, 3rd Earl of Marchmont. It is regarded as one of the grandest mansions in Scotland and over the years has been home to makers and creators who have inspired many through creativity.
It is therefore fitting that Marchmont House uses a range of Pellenc battery-powered equipment – a brand which has based its success on a policy of continuous creative innovation.
The Pellenc equipment is used to help maintain the 5,000-acre estate at Marchmont House and Head Gardener Toby Loveday explained why.
“A big part of our ethos is nature conservation and our impact on the environment,” he said. “The idea has always been to try and move away from petrol powered machinery and start using battery operated equipment.
“Another reason was because we have a lot of events taking place and we wanted to be able to continue working, regardless of the presence of our visitors. To do this we needed to be able to work quietly and you get that with Pellenc equipment.
“The reason we chose Pellenc above other brands was because we wanted equipment which has been built to last. There is going to be a lot of use with this equipment over the next few years, and it must be reliable and able to perform at a really high level. We get this with Pellenc.”
Pellenc is the world’s leading expert in battery-powered tools for maintaining landscapes. Light, odourless, noise-free, with no starting problems and enough power to enable professional users to work for a full day on a single charge, it’s no wonder more and more professional users are turning to Pellenc. It is an attractive alternative to those who have, for several years, been relying on fuel-based machinery.
With an extensive product list available from Pellenc, Toby chose to invest in a whole new fleet consisting of Helion hedge-cutters, Rasion mowers, Excelion strimmers and Airion blowers, which he purchased through Agrovista Amenity.
“The mower has proved particularly good at getting between obstacles,” said Toby. “The Rasion is lightweight and manoeuvrable, and all the staff can use it in a trouble-free manner. It has great features and I like the ease at which you can adjust the height of cut and the variable speed settings.
“I also like the option of having different heads on the strimmers and the City Cut head has been particularly effective in dealing with brambles and some of the more awkward things to control. The hedgecutters, being lightweight and powerful, have been fantastic too.
“For us, the biggest benefits when it comes to using the Pellenc equipment have been the long battery-life, the low vibration levels, and the overall comfort for the operator. We can also use the equipment in all weathers which is important in the Scottish climate.
“I would recommend Pellenc to anybody who is considering switching to battery-powered equipment.”
