Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Outdoor Power Equipment Reviews

Our outdoor power equipment reviews include lawnmowers, riding mowers, zero turn mowers, hedge trimmers, string trimmers, edgers, blowers, and chainsaws. More than that, our OPE reviews hit on both gas and cordless battery powered tools. Recently, we even checked out the Husqvarna Automower 315 Robotic lawn mower and saw what’s possible when you combine robotics with cordless tech. Outdoor Power Equipment Reviews for Pro Landscapers If you’re a landscaping Pro, you want to make sure your crew is doing their work quickly and efficiently. Zero turns, for example, are not all designed the same. Some cut more quickly than others, while others have the build quality to last. For string trimmers, we look for max line size, speed, and ergonomics. You want power, but you also want to be able to operate a tool all day long with ease. Ergonomics and vibration consistently get more attention from organizations like OSHA and NIOSH.
