About solo

Solo NZ Ltd is a subsidiary of SOLO® Kleinmotoren GmbH Sindelfingen, Stuttgart, Germany and has been bringing quality garden equipment to Kiwis for over 59 years!

Our cornerstone Solo brand has a long history of innovation and development and the highest reputation for quality outdoor equipment globally.

 SOLO® Kleinmotoren GmbH was founded in Stuttgart in 1948 by Hans and Heinz Emmerich and, to this day, is still a leading global manufacturer of high grade garden sprayers and mistblowers, blowers and concrete saws, – all featuring high German quality standards you have come to expect from us.

Solo developed the world´s first powered backpack, a revolutionary method of plant protection. Instead of using stationary engine-driven pumps with long spray hoses and lots of manpower, the new machines were operated "solo", by one person - the birth of our trademark name.

Solo NZ Ltd has been going from strength to strength by acquiring distribution rights to other well-known brands - Loncin, best known for their reliable engines and French brand, Pubert producing heavy-duty cultivators and scarifiers. More recently Solo NZ Ltd became the NZ distributor of Maruyama power products from Japan - this range includes chainsaws, water blasters, hedgetrimmers, brushcutters and posthole borers. We also import and distribute Eurosystems tillers and sickle-bar mowers

Solo takes pride in having product that is durable with a full after sale service and parts backup!
