LEHR Incorporated Introduces World’s First Energy Efficient, Easy-To-Use Propane-Powered Lawn and Garden Tools
LOS ANGELES (November 12, 2008) – Eco-friendly lawn and garden care has finally arrived. LEHR Incorporated, an innovator in environmentally friendly technology, is launching the world’s first complete line of portable, propane-powered lawn and garden tools. With its revolutionary and proprietary technology, LEHR has become a leader in the research and development of cleaner, greener lawn equipment.
The LEHR Eco Trimmer was recently awarded the Do it Best 2008 Members’ Choice Award in the “Best New Item” category and will be available at major retailers nationwide and in Canada beginning in January, 2009. It is the first-ever commercially available garden tool to use a standard 16.4 ounce propane canister as its power source. Featuring Twist ‘n Go! fueling, the LEHR Eco Trimmer has all of the power and performance of a competitively priced gasoline trimmer but without the danger, inconvenience and detrimental environmental effects of gasoline use and storage.
Recognizing that the lawn and garden industry is a significant source of air pollution, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently enacted new small engine regulations that will take effect in 2010 and 2011. The first product in the Eco Series line, the LEHR Eco Trimmer, already meets and exceeds those regulations. Having earned the EPA Certificate of Compliance and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order, the LEHR propane powered Eco Trimmer is designed to replace its gasoline counterpart with a cleaner, greener alternative…right now.
At LEHR, we believe it’s time for a change,” says Founder and CEO Captain Bernardo J. Herzer. “Our green strategy is the force that drives our team to developing products that are the cleanest, greenest and most reliable in the industry.”
LEHR products will be a breath of fresh air for the average consumer. Beginning with LEHR’s ‘Twist n’ Go!’ fueling system, the LEHR Eco Trimmer is, first and foremost, user-friendly. Simply twist in the propane canister and start the trimmer – no messy mixing or gasoline storage required. Plus, the LEHR Eco Trimmer runs a clean 2 hours on one canister and requires very little maintenance over the course of a full season of use.
In addition to being incredibly easy to use, the benefits of propane as a fuel source for our families and our environment can not be overstated. Propane is widely known to be more efficient and more reliable than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy waste and better use of our own country’s resources. It is a nontoxic, nonpoisonous gas that does not contaminate soil or water and because it is released from a pressured container in vapor form, it can’t be ingested like other toxic gasoline or alcohol fuels. Propane powered engines produce zero evaporative emissions, zero ozone depleting hydrocarbons while creating 96% fewer cancer causing carcinogens (i.e. benzene and toluene) than their gasoline-powered counterparts.
