The new equipment results from Honda’s appointment of Spaldings as a national dealer covering the UK and Ireland, and as a local dealership for selected products.
All the Honda products are now available through Spaldings’ multiple sales channels – online, by telephone, through the on-farm sales team, and at the retail counter in the company’s premises on Sadlers Road, Lincoln.
As with similar products, return-to-base service and repairs support is available.
Spaldings has supplied Honda portable generators and water pumps for the past three years; the addition of products from the Honda Lawn & Garden range for professional and domestic use means farmers can now also order essential maintenance equipment for use around farmyards and farm dwellings.
Steve Constable, Spaldings managing director, said: “As an approved Honda service agent we are able to offer genuine Honda Lawn & Garden products to our customers giving them greater choice in their decision making.
“The expertise gained from over a decade of being a main servicing dealer for other well-known brands ensures that Spaldings can offer full service and warranty back-up as standard, maintaining our reputation for first class service, quality and value built up over the past 65 years.”
Steve Morris, Head of Power Products at Honda (UK) said: “Spaldings has established itself as a trusted name in the ground care sector, so Honda is delighted to be working alongside the business.
“The company’s decision to stock a wide variety of Honda Lawn & Garden products, aimed at both professional and domestic users, is only the start of good news to come from this partnership in the future.”
In addition to 25cc and 35cc four-stroke petrol brushcutters and the multi-function Honda Versatool – a push-and-click powerhead available with several different attachments – the Honda products now stocked by Spaldings include newly-introduced battery-powered hand tools and walk-behind mowers.
The professional-grade cordless hand tools include the Honda HHT 36 AXB brushcutter supplied with a three-tooth blade and nylon strimming line, ‘handlebar’ grips and a double shoulder harness.
It weighs just 6.5kg before fitting the 36 volt, 6.0Ah lithium-ion universal battery that is also used for Honda’s new 60cm hedge trimmer.
