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 reel 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 reel 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 reel 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 reel mower.

We used the top-quality Continental synchronous belt, with the 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 80 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.
