Neuton® Battery-Powered Lawn Mower Named Organic Gardening 2009 Editors' Choice Award Winner

The Gardening Industry's Most Coveted Award Honors the Best Gardening Tools and Gadgets

EMMAUS, PA and VERGENNES, VT--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - The Neuton Battery-Powered Lawn Mower has received the 2009 Organic Gardening magazine Editors' Choice Award, the most prestigious award in the gardening industry, given annually to products in recognition of their outstanding innovation in design, materials and/or performance.

Organic Gardening Executive Editor Scott Meyer and his staff of editors and test gardeners revealed the award winners in the February/March 2009 issue of Organic Gardening.

The Organic Gardening Editors' Choice Awards, bestowed annually since 2005, honors the products that Organic Gardening editors have chosen as the best of the year based on months of trial testing by teams of highly experienced test gardeners. With no set categories for the awards and no set number of recipients, the products and the testing process drive the award categories.

The Neuton Battery-Powered Lawn Mower was one of 8 innovative products that have been honored with a 2009 Organic Gardening Editors' Choice Award.

The nation's #1 selling battery-powered lawn mower, the Neuton Battery-Powered Lawn Mower was completely redesigned in 2008. Now available in two configurations: 14 in. cut and 19 in. wide-cut models, the Neuton mower can be charged on less than 10 cents worth of electricity and is the quietest lawn mower available. The 19 in. wide-cut Neuton will tackle up to 1/3 of an acre on a single charge; the 14 in. model will handle up to 1/4 of an acre before needing to be charged. Both models start with a simple push of a button and feature and easy-to-use drop-in battery that can be charged inside or outside of the mower.

"Organic gardeners are very conscious about their consumption -- they want to buy only high-quality tools and other gear that are genuinely useful, versatile, and durable so they aren't replacing them every season," Organic Gardening Executive Editor Scott Meyer says. "We used these items hard in a variety of conditions so our readers can trust that they will work in their gardens for years to come. This is a vital service Organic Gardening provides for its readers because they rely on our more than 65 years of experience in gardening and product evaluation to help them make smart choices."

"It is a real honor to be recognized by an institution with such an esteemed reputation; Organic Gardening pretty much invented the organic marketplace and the publication has been a trusted voice for decades," said Ned Van Woert, President of Neuton Power Equipment. "We look forward to continuing to push the innovation envelope in the months and years to come so that we may stay on the forefront of the zero-emission power equipment movement."

The Organic Gardening Editors' Choice Awards are the gold standard against which all gardening products are measured, and provide a seal of approval that can help put a gardening company or product on the proverbial map.

All winners must excel under extensive field-testing conducted by Organic Gardening's team of editors and test gardeners, who take new products into their gardens to put them to the test. This process ensures that the performance of the winners is truly worthy of distinction and meets the guiding principle behind the program: gear that is of real value to the readers of Organic Gardening magazine.

The complete list of Organic Gardening 2009 Editors' Choice Award winners will be officially announced to the general public in the magazine's February/March 2009 issue, on newsstands January 13th.
