Pellenc History

In 1973, Roger Pellenc observed and reflected, surrounded by the vineyards of the Vaucluse. He came up with the idea of a trimmer for pruning the vines. It was an immediate success and the Pellenc company was born. Three years later, a second technological innovation, the first hydraulic pruning shears, was developed. The SME is on the road to success and will mark the history of viticulture.

From research to the registration of patents, from inventions to small revolutions, Pellenc received it's first award for innovation in 1983 during the Vinitech trade fair for the pre-pruner. nothing would stop the fertile imagination of roger Pellenc and his sixty employees. Four years later he launched the first electric shears. They also prove to be a commercial success. Winemakers and fruit growers adopt it immediately.

The 1990s would be the start of the adventure abroad. The subsidiaries in Span and Australia are created. Others follow in South America, North Africa and China. Between the opening of new offices and developing innovative solutions for each of it's markets the Pellenc Group would gradually create it's network on five continents. In 2014, they opened their fifteenth subsidiary in South Africa, a lead market where "Made in France" is an asset.

Meanwhile, the group strengthened it's tooling sector with the creation of their Green & City Technology division in 2008. Driven by a philosophy that combines user comfort and safety with environmental awareness, the division develops and markets "Zero Emission" products for the maintenance of parks and public spaces.

In 2013 the group acquired the company Materiel Pera, a leading player in the sector of wine making equipment. This acquisition constitutes vertical development of the group's activities for becoming a global leader in turnkey engineering solutions for the winemaking market. Meanwhile the group opened a subsidiary in the Bordeaux region to develop a presence in this highly symbolic market, opposite it's main competitor.

In 2011, in order to sustain his business and to ensure the pursuit of his strateegy for success to his employees, Roger Pellenc found an industrial and financial partner in Somfy Participations who share his values and conviction: there is an industry of excellence capable of designing and manufacturing products in France with high technological value and successfully exporting them worldwide.

Today Pellenc has 1,150 employees, 360 based at the registered office in Pertuis with 120 employees working in R & D. The company has recorded 850 patents in 40 years.

Pellenc Innovation & Investment the Story So Far :


Pellenc designs and manufactures powerful, light and compact hand-held tools thanks to the control of state-of-the-art technology: very high efficiency new-technology motors. The efficiency obtained from this type of motor is far greater than that of the former generation of direct current motors; the result is that your tool operates better with the advantage of reduced weight and size. In fact, the energy losses are low because the motor, which is directly coupled with the cutting tool, has an efficiency close to 90% (as opposed to that of a combustion-engine motor which is less than 40 %). Furthermore, the Pellenc new-technology motor is the only electric motor which develops so much power for such a small size and which has a very long service life due to its design. Finally, the Pellenc very high efficiency motor runs at speeds of up to 18,000 rpm (Treelion pruning shears motor) without wear or sparks.

Pellenc Ultra Lithium BatteryPellenc Battery Pack
Pellenc is the world’s first manufacturer to offer a whole range of professional tools for parks and gardens, local authorities, golf courses, etc., which operate with very high capacity lithium-ion batteries. Thanks to their technological advance, Pellenc products are in keeping with sustainable development.

Forget the excessive use of fossil fuels, nauseating smells, never-ending noise pollution and the excessive weight of combustion-engine tools after a day’s work. With Pellenc, you work most often without ear protectors, you can breathe freely, no cramp or pause for tired muscles, and especially, no need to refill your tank all day long. With Pellenc Ultra Lithium Batteries, you have only advantages, including excellent cost effectiveness, and no disadvantage!

Regardless of the model used, the Ultra Lithium Battery provides constant power and has a charge level indicator which indicates your remaining working time. You therefore have from a half day’s work to a full day’s work according to the type of tool used. The Ultra Lithium Battery is equipped with a smart charging system.

PellencSolerion - Solar Charging Station

Pellenc Solerion solar charging stationPellenc Solerion

Once the Solerion photovoltaic (PV) panels are installed, they use an MPPT* load regulator that scans the photo panel cells and monitors the power drawn from them, and then optimises it with the battery connected. This detection is all done automatically. A maximum of three batteries can be charged at one time, by using three separate convertors. A Poly5 battery can be recharged in normal sunlight levels in under three hours as opposed to five hours on a standard 2.2a mains charger.

* MPPT : Maximum Power Point Tracking. This function allows the optimum power drawn to be scanned permanently so that the photovoltaic panels are subsequently supplied with the maximum peak power.

Pellenc NEWS

Pellenc Launches Intelligent Smart Battery Park Management

Pellenc BMS smart battery chargerPellenc has announced the launch of an intelligent smart Battery Park Management (BMS) system, which will allow users to charge up to ten batteries simultaneously.

With Pellenc tools having gained popularity over the past six years since they were officially launched at Saltex, Windsor, Etesia UK - the official UK and Ireland distributor, has found that users are now using multiple batteries that require recharging overnight, as Les Malin, operations director explains:

"When operators previously used multiple batteries, it meant having a series of chargers all requiring individual 13amp sockets on a bench taking up valuable space but also using unsafe extension leads or adaptors. The BMS centralises battery management of all Pellenc batteries allowing a maximum of ten chargers, two of which can be rapid chargers, to be housed in one secure and safe metal cabinet with only one mains plug required."

On the front of the cabinet is a user friendly touch pad that allows the operator to individually control all of the batteries charging input. You can choose from standard pre-programmed or maintenance charges, and enter in to the system, the cost of electricity and cost of petrol. Over the preceding weeks and months, the system will calculate the savings made - both in fuel and electricity, while also showing the amount of Co2 that has been offset which will become even more important in this environmentally-friendly conscious age.

Landscape contractor chooses Pellenc for quiet garden maintenance

Alaster Anderson Specialist Gardeners, a London-focused soft landscaping and garden maintenance company, has purchased a range of environmentally friendly battery-powered Pellenc products.

Alaster Anderson using Pellenc productsThe purchase includes two grass strimmers, two hedge trimmers, two blowers, long reach hedge cutter and chainsaw - all powered by four ultra-lithium batteries, which provide a constant power, giving the contractor up to a full day of work depending on the type of tool used.

Senior Horticulturalist Natalie Nixon first heard of Pellenc three years ago whilst working at RHS Wisley, where the products are also extensively used.

"I was very impressed with the Pellenc products I had used at Wisley, so when I joined here, it was only natural I recommended them when a customer said he wanted to use 'green' maintenance equipment where ever possible."

Natalie's priority is a six acre private garden in North London where she spends 3-4 days each week, which was designed by Christopher Bradley-Hole and is based on the concept of field patterns.

"We have a lot of grasses, perennials and hedging made up of maple, beach and hornbeam which all require a lot of on-going maintenance."

Hedging can take anything up to six weeks of the year, which is generally at the end of July and the beginning of August. "What I find really good when we have to cut the hedging is how quiet all the machinery is. I know our client doesn't like to hear the noise of petrol-powered tools, so using the Pellenc equipment ensures it's so much quieter not just for the client and neighbours but also for us as the users as well It means that we no longer have to use ear defenders which can sometimes be restrictive."

Natalie particularly likes the four-speed selector on the Helion hedge cutter, Excelion grass strimmer and Airion blower: "I like the fact that you are able to work at variable speeds, which are really easy to adjust to the correct working speed, rather than just on or off. For what we do here, this technology is perfect as you have a lot of control and get a really good finish."

In the last five years, Pellenc has gained market recognition by offering a unique range of 'zero emission' battery-powered handheld tools, thanks to the development of Lithium-ion ultra-high performance batteries. This technology, which is exclusive to Pellenc, allows for a drastic reduction in the production of greenhouse gases and noise pollution. It is also comfortable for users, meets new sustainable development demands and offers excellent economic profitability.

Another benefit that Natalie likes is that the battery pack is harnessed to the users back, which she explains makes the machines simpler to use and easy to handle.

"With the amount of adjustments that can be made on the harness, the machines are ideal for quality work. I used to struggle with petrol hedge cutters and that can really affect the quality of the cut. I found that I was getting tired by the end of the day and began to drop the blade, but it's now a distant memory since we've switched to Pellenc.”

Here is an interview with Natalie Nixon :

Pellenc Selion pole chainsawPellenc Selion

The Selion range of fixed pole and telescopic chainsaws from Pellenc are powerful, easy to handle and simple to use.

The Selion P130 and Selion P180 fixed polesaws and Selion T150/200 and Selion T220/300 telescopic polesaws cut with precision. With a reach of up to 3 meters, work can be carried out without a carrying harness because of their lightness. Selion polesaws are ideal for use in noise sensitive areas. They are also powerful enough for forestry work.

With a power output equivalent to 30 cc (i.e. 1200 watts), the Selion Pole and Telescopic chainsaws cut accurately and cleanly thanks to the Oregon 1/4’’ chain fitted as standard and specially designed for accurate pruning.

Particularly light, equipped with a +90°/-45° angle-adjustable head, the Selion Pole and Telescopic chainsaws allow vertical and horizontal pruning and cutting at the base of the tree. At the same time, the Pellenc chain guide bar made from composite materials gives them torsional flexibility and prevents breakage in case of accidental jamming.

As for the Pellenc hand-held chainsaws, the Selion Pole and Telescopic chainsaws benefit from the Pellenc technological innovations. Automatic chain tensioning : a simple click from the spring when you fit the guide bar ensures that both guide bar and chain are correctly
tensioned. The chain can be removed and installed easily thanks to the retractable wrench integrated in the head of the tool, the only tool which is required for this operation. The retractable wrench is also used when the chain needs retensioning during pruning. Finally, thanks to the electronic oil flow control, oil consumption depends on the power consumed by the Selion : compared with gasoline chainsaws, you make about a 30% saving on oil.

The main characteristic of the Treelion pruning shears is that they can work either in progressive mode, for precise work, or in pulse mode (full or half open) for faster pruning. Treelion is equipped as standard with a PRADINES cutting head, which is a world-wide reference in terms of blade quality. Furthermore, with the dual trigger system, with a simple press, the blades can be opened from an intermediate position to the fully open position, to gain in speed and simplicity of use. This range of pruning shears is provided as standard with the 200 battery or with a kit for connection to another Ultra Lithium Battery. There are several versions of the Treelion : onehanded conventional type model and several two-handed models for working in dense vegetation. Like all the other Pellenc products, Ultra Lithium Battery benefits from a very-high-capacity technology which guarantees use with no odour, no pollution and a revolutionary working capacity.

PellencExcelion Brushcutter/Strimmer

Clear brush and trim grass with an ultra-light tool: this is a job for the Pellenc Excelion.

Pellenc excelion Brushcutter

The Excelion brushcutter is a unique tool as it combines a brush and a grass cutter in one: the multifunction head developed by Pellenc can be fitted, without the use of tools, with the Pellenc wire cutter made from a very high resistance polyamide or a wide range of metal blades adapted to your work.

Two times lighter than some petrol brushcutters, The Excelion makes grass and brush cutting much easier in ditches, on slopes or steep inclines with its adjustable handle, flexible head and telescopic system.

You can adapt your tool to your body shape for optimized working comfort.

The 4-speed selector, exclusive to Pellenc, makes it easier to adapt to the vegetation: slow speeds are recommended for edges and urban areas for example. Silent, rapid and extremely lightweight, Excelion is the new brush cutter for professionals.

As with all other Pellenc products, Excelion uses the ultra high capacity technology of the ultra lithium battery and guarantees non-polluting, odourless operation with quick start-up and a record operating range.

The user no longer needs to remove the head to adjust the length of the wire.  In addition, PELLENC heads can be equipped with several wire diameters.


This PELLENC designed magnesium angle transmission in magnesium is very light and durable, enabling perfect balancing of the machine. Specific work aimed at minimising the noise produced by the mechanism was carried out. In addition, the hardware is integrated preventing any possible loss of the fixing screws.

Bio breakthrough for Etesia

ETESIA is an ecologically-responsible company

Etesia is taking a major environmental step forward in grass cutting history with the launch of ride-on rotaries that can run on low emission B30-diesel. As an eco-friendly company Etesia takes its responsibilities seriously, so with the choice of cleaner fuels now available, they have strong reasons to look at alternatives in order to help national and international efforts to reduce climate change.

Etesia bio concept

Whilst other manufacturers in the garden machinery industry have gone down the route of using B20-diesel, Etesia has opted for the B30-diesel mix because it contains the far higher ratio of 30% renewable Bio fuel (produced from transesterified oil of crops such as oilseed rape, sunflowers and soybeans) to 70% diesel. Therefore, because B30-diesel contains 50% more plant generated Bio fuel than B20-diesel, it offers a greater reduction in emissions, especially when compared with mineral diesel. It is also highly biodegradable in the event of spillage.
To achieve this progress, Etesia’s Research & Development team has been working closely with engine manufacturer, Lombardini. The result is that every one of the company’s Lombardini-powered ride-ons in the Hydro rotary ranges can now simply switch between conventional diesel and B30-diesel, according to fuel availability or operator choice. The two fuels are interchangeable – no modifications are required and there is no need to clean either the tank or the engine.

Through Lombardini’s co-operation with Etesia during the research and trials, they are now believed to be the only manufacturer with the confidence to offer full warranty on their engines when run on either B30-diesel or standard diesel.

To complete the eco-friendly picture, all Etesia Hydro ride-ons can now be factory supplied with bio-degradable engine oil, greases and hydraulic fluids. This means that in the event of spillage or at the time of disposal, our planet is not harmed.

Etesia professional EC Compliant Hydro ride-on rotaries are built for high output; superb performance; long life and minimum downtime. When used with B30-diesel there is no loss of power and their high performance is not affected. This new low emission fuel option puts Etesia ahead of the field in this industry with an initiative designed to reduce the carbon footprint made by their products.

We are pleased to announce that with Etesia you can have Bio-compatibility today

All of the H144, H124D and H100D models are already usable with B30 biodiesel B30 with no change to the engine and with all of the manufacturer’s guarantees intact.

From the end of 2007, all of the Etesia diesel models, namely the H144, H124D and H100D, can be ordered in the 100% bio version. These ETESIA “bio” ride-on mowers will then be using biodegradable oil (for both engine and transmission), as well as biodegradable greases and will operate with B30biodiesel. On the other hand, oil changes must be performed every 125 hours. Nevertheless, the performance of the hydro 144M, 124D and 100D will remain unchanged.

The price for the “biofuel” option is just an extra £316 (excl. VAT) on the machines list price, list price at 01/09/07. This option is possible only on the ETESIA assembly line and machines must be ordered as Bio Units.

CSR initiatives at RTM

Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives carried out by RTM are focused on four areas of activity: Our Community, The Environment, Our Marketplace and The Workplace.   Simple initiatives have been put in place to bring these areas to the attention of our staff, our suppliers and our customers.

Our community
Wherever we do business, our priority is to make a positive contribution to the communities that we serve. Being a good neighbour is also important to us and we encourage our employees to share their expertise to help people whenever possible.

Our environment
As a business we aim to progressively improve our environmental credentials and to minimise our impact on the environment with improved carbon management.  At RTM we are determined to be a leader in our field and an example to others in addressing the threat of climate change.   We believe it makes sense to pay attention to the environmental impact of our business practises, and through simple product and operational considerations we can make a difference.

Our marketplace
Wherever we work, whatever we market and how ever we serve our values underpin our mission to make RTM a leader in the UK Turf and Groundcare market.  From homeowner products to large tractors and public open space mowing systems we are responsible for bringing these values to life for our customers and partners, every day, wherever we operate.  Pivotal to the ongoing success of our company is the trust in which RTM is held by our customers and suppliers alike. We aim to reflect integrity and best value in everything we do.

Our workplace
For a business that is all about providing solutions and good value, it is second nature to make the health and wellbeing of our own employees a very high priority. It is one of the main reasons why so many of our staff are proud to work for R T M and eager to play their part in building a sustainable business. We continue to train and develop our people at all levels so they are equipped to meet the challenges of our industry.

Sustainable Development at RTM

Sustainable development is considered a worthy goal for RTM and small businesses everywhere. As members of our various communities, we know that society, the environment, and the economy are interconnected. It makes sense to pay attention to the environmental impact of our economic practices, and try to ensure that our communities are healthy, pleasant places to live.

Paying attention to sustainable development is especially sensible when so many of our potential customers and clients are actively seeking greener products and services. Making environmentally conscious decisions about our business operations will create opportunity and we hope be good for continued development and profitability.

Operating a green business is not only good for the environment but good for our business's retained profit because conserving resources and cutting down on waste saves money.

Making simple changes and thinking about our responsibility means we can run an environmentally friendly business.

Recycling is the first thing that comes to mind when we think of being environmentally friendly. And recycling is important. But recycling is only one part of the environmentally friendly business equation. We can also take a large step towards being more environmentally friendly by reducing the amounts of waste in our offices and business operations.

1. Turn off equipment when it's not being used. This can reduce the energy used by 25 percent; turning off the computers at the end of the day can save an additional 50 percent.

2. Encourage communications by email, and read email messages onscreen to determine whether it's necessary to print them. If it's not, don't!

3. Reduce fax-related paper waste by using a fax-modem and by using a fax cover sheet only when necessary.  Fax-modems allow documents to be sent directly from a computer, without requiring a printed hard copy.

4. Produce double-sided documents whenever possible.

5. Do not leave taps dripping; always close them tightly after use.

6. Install displacement blocks in toilet reservoirs. Placing a container filled with stones in the toilet's cistern will displace about 3 litres of water per flush - a huge reduction of water use over the course of a year.

7. Find a supply of paper with maximum available recycled content for internal office use.

8. Review Suppliers Environmental policies and credentials.  Encourage suppliers to take back packaging for reuse / recycle.

9. Instigate an ongoing search for "greener" products and services in the local community. Reduce the travel of our suppliers and service providers where possible.

10. Review purchasing new equipment and disposing of old – can furniture or tools be refurbished. It could be less expensive than buying new and better for the environment.
