The battery is also waterproof to IP54 standards. The new battery has the highest capacity on the market and is equivalent to 5640 litres of petrol.

With more than twelve years' experience, Pellenc is the pioneer of professional battery- powered tools and this new battery guarantees performance, ergonomics and battery life that will revolutionise the use of professional battery-powered tools. The ergonomics and lightness of the new Pellenc harness offer an optimal level of comfort in use. Its weight is perfectly distributed on the essential axes of back support. 70% of the mass rests on the hips and only 30% on the shoulders.
