Husqvarna Group has answered that question with their new concept, Husqvarna Battery Box. This automated tool rental shop was launched in Sweden in May of 2017, featuring Husqvarna’s line of eco-friendly, battery-powered professional gardening tools. With Battery Box’s usage-based payment model, customers don’t have to buy the tools, they can easily rent and pay for them with an app.
Battery Box makes tools accessible to customers who may lack the space to store tools, or who may be hesitant to make an initial investment in a particular tool. Given the chance to use tools before making a purchase, customers also can see for themselves that Husqvarna’s battery-powered products are just as powerful as tools fuelled by petrol.
