Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Greenworks Zero Turn Mowers | Battery-Powered Commercial ZTs

As the world progressively gets more up-in-arms over the noise and emissions of gas motors, particularly in Pro lawn care applications, we’re learning that modern problems require modern solutions. That’s where the Greenworks battery-powered line of commercial zero turn mowers (and two residential models) come in. They already make one of the best electric lawn mowers for consumers. These battery-powered ZT mowers have all the tools you need to not only get through the entire workday with power and speed but also drop the decibels and emissions to levels that keep everyone happy.


10-Second Summary

Greenworks Zero Turn Mower lineup includes:

  • 60″ Ride-On Zero Turn Mower
  • 52″ Ride-On Zero Turn Mower
  • 48″ Residential Zero Turn Mower
  • 42″ RZ-42R 60V Residential Zero Turn Mower
  • 52″ Stand-On Zero Turn Mower
  • 48″ Stand-On Zero Turn Mower

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 about is it rain proof? If im driving with an open tariler and it pours for 20 minutes, will it still work? what if it starts to pour when i have 10 minutes left of cutting can i continue like it was a gas machine? What if its a drizzle or mist all day? Inquiring minds want to know! And if the answer to any of those questions is NO, then your product is worthless to any commercial user.

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.
