Brill Batteries and Chargers

Brill Batteries and Chargers: As many of you know, we are now rebuilding Brill Batteries. After being rebuilt, the batteries are better than they were when new! We can rebuild the batteries to 2.2 Ah which is what you have or to 3.0 Ah which is 30% more powerful than what you have.

Now Chargers: We can also make new chargers for you, which will charge your battery faster than the Brill charger which came with your battery.

To Order: You can make an order online at peoplepoweredmachines.com to have your battery rebuilt. We’ll process the order and send you the address to which you send your old Brill Battery. Or call 978 884 8156 to order a battery or charger.


Brill Rebuilt Batteries Are Popular

Rebuilding Brill Batteries: When we launched this program of rebuilding Brill Batteries we were not sure how popular it would be. These are the batteries used in Brill Accu 38 electric reel mowers, Brill ASM380 reel mowers, and Brill Accu Trimmers. But after two weeks, we can tell it is very popular. So keep those old Brill Batteries – they are worth something.

2.2 Ah or 3.0 Ah: The Brill Battery you have is a 2.2 Ah, and we can rebuild it so it is better than it was when new. Or we can rebuild it to 3.0 Ah which is 30% more powerful and runs 30% longer.

Remember: Don’t throw old Brill Batteries out! We can also rebuild other batteries, just not lithium ion ones.

Old Brill Batteries Are Worth $

Old Brill Batteries: Save your Brill Batteries – they are worth cash. Just contact us and we’ll tell you how. The Brill Batteries are used to power either the ASM380, the Accu Razorcut, or the Brill Trimmer. With our ability to rebuild Brill Batteries to be better than when new – your old batteries have just become valuable.

2.2 AH or 3.0 AH:
Brill Batteries can now be built to either 2.2 AH or 3.0 AH. The 2.2 AH is basically what you first received except our rebuilt are stronger and don’t take as long to recharge. The 3.0 AH is 30% stronger than the new Accu Battery and takes less time to recharge.

So if you have a Brill Battery: Let us know!

Rebuilding Depleted Brill Batteries

Rebuild Brill Batteries: We are very pleased to announce that we can now rebuild Brill Batteries that have lost their charge.

Two Recell Options: We offer two recell options for the 24V Brill packs. They are either our standard capacity 2.2Ah (or 2200mAh if you prefer) nickel-metal hydride (NiMh) cells or 3.0Ah NiMh cells. From what I can glean from the part number on the cells of the Brill pack we serviced last week the OE capacity is 2.0Ah via nickel-cadmium (NiCd) cells.

Two Services: Either one of our services would provide a run-time improvement over the OE pack. Additionally, since we recell the packs using NiMh cells they are more environmentally friendly to manufacture and do not suffer from charge memory effects that NiCd typically do.

The Cells: The cells we use are made to our specifications to be high-drain cells, meaning they are designed to take high loads for a sustained period of time (ours can take a sustained 10X cell capacity load). Basically this means the cells were made for a high-drain use in mind (ie. power tools or in your case lawn mowers which need peak torque output) and are not typical cells which would be used for low power electrical devices (cordless phones, etc.).

Supply of Brill Batteries: As the supply of Brill Batteries has run out, this is great news. Save those old Brill Batteries!

New Haaga Sweeper Product Line

Ladies and Gentlemen,

  Haaga Sweepers have several exciting NEW models and changes for 2011!!

     Haaga GmbH informed us during our spring meetings at our office a few weeks ago that due to increases manufacturing costs, the weak U.S. dollar compared to the Euro, and increased transportation costs due to rising fuel costs and less Trans-Atlantic carriers we would see price increases.  We recieved the final pricing this week and it will become effective in the U.S. and Canada on June 15th 2011.  Haaga GmbH has agreed to honor all orders at the old pricing up to that point.  The quality innovations Haaga Sweepers  is releasing this year only strengthen our position in the U.S. and Canadian Sweeping Markets.

If you have already submitted an order that was back-ordered due to availability, you will be charged the original quoted pricing.  We realize that some of these orders are over a month old.  We apologize for these delays which were due to production issues of the new Haaga Sweeper models and are out of our control.  These issues have been properly addressed and resolved by Haaga GmbH.

Additionally, we are very excited to announce that we are in the process of re-locating our U.S. Haaga Warehousing facility to Atlanta, GA.  This will be completed late next week and we will be shipping out of this new facility the week following.  All back-ordered sweepers will ship from this new warehouse location.  They have the capacity to handle the increase in volume that we have seen over the past 6 months.  We tripled our U.S. Sales from 2009 to 2010 and anticipate this strong growth to continue.  Haaga will also be releasing New Products in to the U.S. Market.  We will be introducing an electric pressure washer, a hi-power wet/dry vac and a Snow Sweeper (Haaga 970) in the coming months.

We will be sending out a formal Haaga Price Sheet (pdf) later in the week, but wanted to get the pricing to you as soon as possible so that you can take advantage of this profit opportunity.
