Solo NZ Ltd is a subsidiary of SOLO® Kleinmotoren GmbH Sindelfingen, Stuttgart, Germany and has been bringing quality garden equipment to Kiwis for over 58 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 brothers Hans and Heinz Emmerich and to this day is still a leading global manufacturer of high grade garden sprayers and mistblowers, blowers, cut-off machines, generators and water pumps– all featuring the 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.

With the sale of the chainsaw and brushcutter range to another German company, AL-KO, Solo NZ Ltd was able to obtain access to AL-KO’s garden equipment, including brushcutter, lawnmowers and hedgetrimmers as well as the Solo by AL-KO collection.

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 scarifier.
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.

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