Cormac uses battery tools for services

At the forefront of innovation, staff members at Cormac, a leading provider of civil engineering, highway, and environmental services, are revolutionizing their work by utilizing STIHL’s battery-powered equipment to carry out essential services for local communities.

STIHL’s outdoor equipment presents numerous advantages over traditional petrol machines, including lower vibration and noise levels, making it not only cleaner and safer for the operators but also for the environment. Additionally, it eliminates the hassle of storing and transporting fuel.

Recently, Cormac made an investment in professional battery-powered brushcutters and power stations for its coastal clearance teams, enabling them to clear footpaths efficiently and sustainably.

Fred Aston, Commercial Solutions Consultant at STIHL, highlighted the company’s commitment to safety and user experience. He mentioned, “At STIHL, we are focused on delivering superior products. Our petrol machines have long been equipped with anti-vibration systems, and we continue to enhance our range with more powerful, lower vibration, and fuel-efficient models. As for our rapidly expanding battery-powered range, these tools produce no emissions and offer reduced vibrations and noise levels compared to their petrol counterparts.”

He added, “Feedback from Cormac and their operatives regarding our equipment has been overwhelmingly positive. Through extensive trials, they have experienced first-hand the benefits of our technology, cementing STIHL as the go-to solution for their outdoor power equipment requirements.”

The Cormac operatives use the FSA 200 battery brushcutter, which matches the power of STIHL’s petrol FS 361 C-EM model. Using the PS 3000 portable power supply, Cormac can conveniently charge batteries anywhere and access 240v power in remote locations.

Andy James, Business Director – Term Service Contracts at Cormac, expressed satisfaction with the STIHL equipment, stating, “Our operatives have provided highly positive feedback on the equipment. The use of this technology allows us to reduce carbon emissions and minimize the impact of noise and vibration on our operational teams. This ultimately leads to improved health, safety, and environmental benefits, enabling us to deliver more value to our communities.”

Ann Trevarton, Cormac’s Operations Manager, emphasized the company’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact. She said, “We conducted rigorous trials before deciding to invest in STIHL equipment. Demonstrating our dedication to reducing our operations’ environmental footprint, this investment marks a significant step forward for us.”

Looking ahead, STIHL will continue its partnership with Cormac, with plans to provide access to training through an e-learning platform. Additionally, STIHL will introduce a new fleet management system called STIHL Connected and offer training support for in-house maintenance and servicing.

Furthermore, new machines, including pre-production models, will be deployed for testing and feedback purposes, ensuring that Cormac has access to cutting-edge tools for their operations.
