Greenworks Zero Turn Mowers

Greenworks 60-inch Ride-On Zero Turn Mower

As the king of the Greenworks line, the Lithium Z GZ 60R mower offers the Pro a 60-inch steel cutting deck that can tackle up to 12 acres on a single charge from the mower’s 82V battery.

It features two 1.7KW brushless motors that keep you moving at a top speed of up to 10 mph. Meanwhile, three more 1.5KW brushless motors drive the cutting blades at a near-constant 17,000 FPM to get through grass quickly and efficiently. And, because grass types vary and there’s no one-height-fits-all approach, this Greenworks ZT lets you set your cut height anywhere between 1.5 to 6 inches.

The Greenworks Lithium Z GZ 60R Zero Turn Mower retails for $20,999 and comes with a 2-year warranty on the mower, and a 3-year warranty on the battery.

How can it cost this much, and only have a 3 year warranty? I figured something like a 10 year warranty would justify the cost, but I’m starting to suspect that all this cordless electric stuff labeled “commercial” is just a ripoff.
