Swardman Electra will bring peace to gardens

Up to 70 % of people want to implement some legislation that would limit noise in their town, especially during weekends. More than a half of communities already have such legislation in place. These are the outcomes of research conducted by Swardman on a sample of citizens and townships with over 1000 inhabitants. People complained the most about the noise from lawn mowing and wood cutting.

For English-style, low-cut lawns, it is ideal to mow them with a cylinder mower at least twice a week. Thus, if you have no possibility of mowing during the weekend, you have to manage it during the 5 weekdays, often in the evening; such legislation can significantly limit your lawn care possibilities.

A common lawn mowing tractor produces a noise of about 100 dB, a common mower ca 96 dB. At those noise levels, you should be protecting your hearing while mowing. The Edwin cylinder mower from our production has a guaranteed noise level of 92 dB, which is 40 % less than the competition and it makes Edwin the quietest petrol mower on the market. But this might still not be enough for some people.

Imagine a mower that makes a noise as low as a water kettle, but still can mow (cut!) your lawn and has all the advantages of a petrol cylinder mower. It would be a dream that even your neighbours would love. That was our big goal when we first started developing the Swardman Electra battery-powered mower.

We used the top-quality Continental synchronous belt, with efficiency of up to 99 %. But what is most important, it barely makes a sound. We inserted it into a durable chassis construction and avoided plastic parts to achieve an astonishingly low noise level. The noise level of Swardman Electra is at ca 70 dB. You are actually making bigger noise when you have a loud conversation.

We managed to push the borders to another dimension. Swardman Electra is the quietest walk-behind mower in the world.

Swardman Electra – driving and mowing

Simplicity is power. We tried to stick to this motto when we developed the electronic control system for the battery-powered Electra. That is why we opted for just five control buttons with intuitive features.

Swardman introduces its second model line named Electra. It is the world’s first mower powered by two
electric motors. Electra is also the quietest real lawn mower in the world. In 2015 Swardman introduced its
first model Edwin, which was followed by Edwin 2.0 in September 2017. This makes Electra the third newly
introduced mower model in the past three years.


How to irrigate your lawn in summer and save water

Insufficient water supply is one of the factors that put the grass under stress. Its immunity is decreased and the risk of fungal diseases grows. At the same time, the chance of a mechanical damage to the lawn is higher as well, which can lead to increased growth of weeds. This article will tell you how to irrigate correctly while saving water.


Comparison of robotic and cylinder mowers

Is it even possible to compare these two machines? In the following text, we are going to attempt to explain the key differences between the two approaches to lawn mowing. One philosophy is based on the premise that the lawn will be mown by a machine instead of the owner. At the same time, you are not focused on the quality and a long-term sustainability of the lawn. On the other hand, there is a cylinder mower with a perfect cut, collection of the cut grass blades in a bin and a long-term effect and creation of an English-style lawn.
