John Deere Dealerships to Offer Battery Operated Outdoor Gardening Equipment Through Strategic Partnership

Crestmead, Queensland (16 February, 2024) — Australian and New Zealand homeowners will soon have access to a range of battery-operated gardening equipment at John Deere dealerships as part of a strategic partnership with Chervon, parent company of leading global provider of outdoor power equipment and power tools, EGO.

The local announcement follows an initial partnership in the US in June last year, which John Deere Australia and New Zealand Production Systems Manager, Stephanie Gersekowski, said was another step forward in providing quality and innovative products for the company's residential customers.

"Partnering with a leading electric solution brand, like EGO, to provide top-quality battery-powered equipment will place us in the best possible position to meet the needs of our customers," Ms Gersekowski said.

"We know our residential and lifestyle customers are seeking sustainable solutions to their gardening efforts, and this broad range of tools will help simplify landscape management with a battery ecosystem that can be used across a variety of property care solutions."

EGO batteries are portable and can be used across more than 70 compatible products, allowing customers to complete multiple projects using several products with the same battery system.

EGO-branded battery products will be available through select Australian and New Zealand John Deere dealerships from early 2024.
