Husqvarna tests sharing economy pilot project in Sweden

This spring, Husqvarna launched a project that will see homeowners in Stockholm, Sweden gain access to pay-per-use power tools for their gardens.

The Husqvarna Battery Box, is a “smart,” eight by three-metre, unattended container with 30 electronic lockers that store battery powered garden care products. Via an iPhone app, homeowners can reserve tools, get instructions, pay, and open the locker to pick up their pre-booked power tool. The “box” will be placed at Bromma Blocks, a shopping center 15 minutes west of Stockholm.
