GIE 2021 was a huge eye-opener for us. After taking a year off with the rest of the world, we had 24 months worth of product development to catch up on. For Greenworks Commercial lawn care equipment, it was the perfect time to make a legitimate case to ditch gas equipment.
Why Consider Switching to Greenworks Commercial Lawn Care Equipment?
If you’re a lawn care Pro, you’re most likely familiar with the primary benefits of battery-powered equipment:
- Low noise
- Reduced emissions
- Less maintenance
Recently, California passed into law a ban on the sale of many gas-powered categories, including generators and lawn care equipment, starting January 1, 2024. That may kick-start a renewed shift away from gasoline, but battery-powered equipment has been gaining market share quickly. Some municipalities, large campuses, and certain neighborhoods already ban the use of at least some gas equipment.
If you want to continue providing lawn care services in those areas, you need battery-powered equipment. If you don’t, you might still want to at least outfit one crew with battery power as an option for clients that prefer it for one reason or another. Since many areas of the country still don’t have many battery crews, it puts you in a position to charge a premium for those services and end up more profitable at the end of the day.
Greenworks Commercial Lawn Care Equipment: What’s Different?
Greenworks Commercial tools aren’t new. The 82V line has been around for years and the 24V/48V line is becoming more established. What really knocked our socks off at GIE was the new generation of equipment that’s available now.
Across the board, the handheld tools are lighter and more powerful than before. The walk-behind mowers have more power, pushing to a 160cc equivalent. The ZT, stand-on, and utility vehicle lineup is making strides forward. even the battery got an ergonomic upgrade so that they’re easier to load and unload. Plus, there’s a rolling fan-cooled 6-port charger to keep your crew in the game.
The point is that Greenworks Commercial lawn care equipment now has the tools to help you make a transition from gas to battery without having to sacrifice performance and completely change the way you mow. Even if you’re still not too sure about this whole battery-powered movement, it’s at least worth a visit to your local Greenworks Commercial dealer to see the tools for yourself and schedule a demo.
If you’re ready to take the plunge, check out some of the deals they’re running right now. For a limited time, there are some outstanding discounts on tools with a battery and charger for about the price of the bare tools.
Greenworks Commercial also offers discounts up to 20% on handheld and walk-behind equipment through their Green Fleet Program.
