BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Take charge of spring yard care with Toro’s PowerPlex® family of handheld 40V Max* lithium ion products – available online and at select retail stores. Ready for virtually any clean-up task, the complete range of equipment includes a brushless DC blower, a brushless DC chainsaw, a 24-inch hedge trimmer, a 13-inch string trimmer / edger, and a 14-inch brushless DC string trimmer.

These compact and easy-to-use products are highly productive, rivaling the power and performance of gas-powered models. The PowerPlex blower can move up to 480 cubic feet per minute. The 24-inch hedge trimmer boasts a 90-degree rotating handle for simple operation. The PowerPlex 14-inch chainsaw is ideal for storm clean-up or property maintenance, and a fully functional chain brake comes standard on the unit. Furthermore, both PowerPlex string trimmers feature variable-speed trigger control to handle various applications and offer a targeted run time of around 40 minutes on a single charge.

The line also includes a quick charger with a tabletop or wall-mount option and comes standard with the complete tools. The T90 (included) is a 40-Volt Max*, 2.5 amp-hour and 90 watt-hour, lithium ion battery, and the T180 (optional upgrade) is a 40-Volt Max*, 5.0 Amp-Hour and 180 watt-hour battery. Both batteries include an on-board power meter, and the T180 battery features an integrated LED flashlight, USB charging port for charging tablets, cell phones and other small devices, and a folding handle for simple transport. Batteries are interchangeable between products, allowing operators to easily switch from one task to another.

The PowerPlex line is available in store and online from select retailers. For more information, please visit www.toro.com/powerplex.
