Propane Garden Tools

propanealt.jpg

It's no secret that gasoline-powered trimmers can be noisy, messy, and overkill for most residential applications. Unfortunately, whether it be a matter of convenience or not being aware of alternatives, millions of gas-powered trimmers continue to pollute the earth on a daily basis.

But what if you WERE aware of alternatives? What if you had access to a suite of alternative-fuel lawn & garden tools that were easier to use, less expensive to operate, safer to control, and just as powerful as their gasoline-powered counterparts. Would you be interested?

Welcome to the Lehr Eco Trimmer and Multi-TOOL Family!

Even by itself, the LEHR Eco Trimmer has all of the power and performance of a similarly priced gasoline-powered grass trimmer. But with the introduction of our exclusive Multi-TOOL attachments, you can now convert your Lehr Eco Trimmer into a wide range of lawn & garden tools.

Simply detach the trimmer from the shaft and slide on a compatible MultiTOOL add-on, such as our:

Up to EIGHT different tools in one. Easier storage, easier use, easier care. And all without the danger, inconvenience, and environmental impact of gasoline powered equipment.

Propane Lawn & Garden Care...it's Easy. It's Clean. It's Powerful.


Yes! It's Easy!

The LEHR Eco Trimmer uses a standard 16.4 oz propane canister as its power source so that you have a safer, cleaner, and easier alternative to gasoline-powered equipment.

These are the same little propane tanks that power camping stoves and they are readily available in hardware stores, grocery stores, and sporting goods stores. They are inexpensive, easy to transport, safe to store, and simple to use with your new grass trimmer.

With its innovative "Twist 'n Go" Fueling, you simply twist in a propane canister, press the start button, and you're ready to go! There is no choke, no priming, no harmful fumes, no yanking on cords, and no messy mixing of gas and oil.

You Just Twist, Push, and Go!


"My recent purchase of your propane powered string trimmer is working out very well, both in terms of low
exhaust emissions and efficiency as a trimmer...delighted not to have to mix gas and oil and
refill a fuel tank, with the inevitable spillage that used to occur." - Bryan P., 03/19/2009

 

YES! It's Clean! 

epa.jpgDid you know that the EPA has already recognized the LEHR Eco Trimmer with the EPA Clean Air Excellence Award thanks to its dramatic reduction in air pollutants?

Even if you don't consider yourself part of the "Green Movement", consider this.

More than 85% of the propane used in this country is produced in the United States. As more and more homeowners replace their gasoline-powered lawn & garden equipment with propane-powered alternatives, we can further reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

A Gasoline-Free Garden!

Propane is a nontoxic, nonpoisonous gas that does not contaminate soil or water. It is already in use by millions of Americans every day in furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, fireplaces, appliances and outdoor grills.

Propane has long been recognized as the cleaner, greener alternative fuel and it only makes sense to extend its benefits to the lawns we play on, the gardens we admire, and the air we breathe.

When the canister is empty, after about 2 hours of use, simply twist on another canister and recycle the empty one! Propane canisters are made of steel and are therefore 100% recyclable.


DID YOU KNOW? Approximately 87 tons of smog-producing pollution (the equivalent of
fumes from 1,000,000 cars) are created daily by fumes from filling gas trimmers,
grass trimmers, lawn mowers and other lawn and garden tools.

Propane Facts

  • Propane is an approved alternative fuel listed in the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy Act of 1992.
  • Converting small utility engines like the ones in grass trimmers and gas trimmers to burn propane instead of gasoline can reduce emissions of ozone precursors by one third and increase fuel economy by 14%.
  • Propane exhaust creates 60 percent to 70 percent less smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline, according to studies by the Southwest Research Institute.
  • Propane cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like benzene and toluene by up to 96%, compared to gasoline, according to studies by the Southwest Research Institute.
  • Propane does not contain Class I or II ozone-depleting chemicals (40 CFR Part 82).
  • Propane is not harmful to soil or water.
  • Propane won't ignite when in the air unless the source of ignition reaches 940° F.
  • Propane is non-toxic and produces minimal emissions.
  • Propane is released from a pressured container in vapor form, so it isn't ingested like other gasoline or alcohol fuels.
  • Propane has a 110 octane rating
  • Propane has 96% fewer carcinogens
  • Propane is safe to store
  • Propane lowers fuel costs
  • Propane lowers maintenance cost
  • Propane reduces our dependency on foreign oil
  • Propane is the world's #1 alternative motor fuel


Did You Know that gasoline has cancer causing emissions, is toxic to topsoil and
ground water, and leads to more wear and tear on engine components?


YES! It's Powerful!

Ok, so we now know what propane-powered tools can do for the environment, but what can they do for you?

One of the biggest benefits of the LEHR Eco Trimmer, outside its earth-friendly technology, is that it delivers the same power and performance of a gasoline trimmer without delivering the safety concerns, inconvenience, and detrimental environmental effects.

Even more motivating is that the LEHR Eco Trimmer is comparable in price to gasoline powered 4 stroke grass trimmers. But the real savings are in its operation as it will cost far less to use and maintain over the lifespan of the product when compared to gas powered alternatives.

With the introduction of GreenGardenTools.com's proprietary Multi-TOOL combo add-ons, you can now expand the power of your Eco Trimmer by simply detaching the trimmer and snapping on any one of our attachments, including our:


"I am happy to report that my new LEHR trimmer works great with the tiller attachment. Fantastic.
Much more quiet, and much less smelly than my old 2 stroke engine. It seems to have  plenty
of power for tilling our vegetable garden and flower beds." - Stephen P., 04/02/09


Getting Started!

If you're ready to harness the power, simplicity, and savings of earth-friendly gardening, edging, trimming, tilling, and more, here's how to get started.

STEP ONE: Purchase the Lehr Eco Trimmer
The Lehr Eco Trimmer with detachable shaft will allow you to easily swap between lawn & garden tools so that you can tend to your landscaping with ease.

The first step is to purchase the Lehr Eco Trimmer and decide between a Straight Shaft and a Curved Shaft. It really just comes down to personal preference but here is a little guide to refer to:

ST025DS_LEFT_1.jpg
Choose a Straight Shaft Eco Trimmer if you:

  • Are taller than average...those over six feet may find the curved shaft to be too short
  • Need to reach under bushes or brush
  • Plan to use it as an edger, hedge trimmer, or tree pruner

 

ST025DC_RIGHT_3.jpg
Choose a Curved Shaft Eco Trimmer if you:

  • Are shorter in height as it will be easier to handle
  • Need a somewhat lighter alternative
  • Don't plan on using many of the MultiTOOL attachments


STEP TWO: Purchase Optional Attachments
Rather than purchase new tools that individually require fueling, maintenance, and oil, why not expand the capability of your Lehr Eco Trimmer with MultiTOOL attachments?

Simply detach the grass trimmer that comes with your Eco Trimmer and slide on the desired attachment. Nearly all of your landscaping needs can be addressed with eco-friendly propane power!

Multi-TOOL Leaf Blower Attachment
Eco friendly and quiet, The EasyTOOL Eco Friendly Power Blower produces a highly controllable jet of air to lift and move snow or leaves into convenient piles. Simply attach the powerful Lehr Eco Trimmer power source to produce finger tip control from a breeze to a blast to suit the job.

"I used my LEHR yesterday as a rotatiller (with an attachment) before planting my vegetable garden.
I was able to til the earth and plant my garden without using any gasoline! How beautiful.
So far I have been so happy with my LEHR trimmer. Thanks." - Jane, 3/30/09
