Best Greenworks Outdoor Power Equipment at GIE 2019

Greenworks has been pushing the boundaries of battery-powered OPE for the last several years and the fruits of their development labors are showing up with a new generation of available products. Some of that technology is starting to trickle down into residential products as well. Take a look at the Greenworks outdoor power equipment that caught our attention at GIE 2019.

Greenworks 48″ Residential Zero Turn Mower

Greenworks was showing off the latest addition to their lithium-ion zero turn lineup—a more affordable 48″ residential model. With the ability to cut up to 2.25 acres on an hour of runtime, it’s a great solution if you have a larger lawn and want to ditch the gas can.

Check out more on this battery-powered residential ZT here.

Greenworks Commercial 48V 12″ Top Handle Chainsaw

The new 12″ top handle chainsaw is part of the commercial 48V line that supplements Greenworks’ more powerful 82V tools. This arborist chainsaw comes with a 12″ bar and is also compatible with 10″ and 14″ bars if you’d like a different size. It’s capable of chain speeds up to 65 fps and the battery is compatible with a suite of 48V and 24V tools to supplement your big dawgs.

Greenworks Commercial Bike Handle String Trimmer

I love bike handle string trimmers when I have long fence lines or large areas of brush to clear and I’m excited to see Greenworks bringing one to their 82V commercial line. Available in 16″ and 18″ cutting swaths, this model has a lot more power than many of the battery-powered string trimmers I’ve used. It has enough power and torque that I’d wager it can handle a brush-cutting blade even though Greenworks doesn’t spec it for one.

Even though it’s not the first time we’ve seen it, the Greenworks Commercial Lithium Z 60″ Zero Turn Mower is a huge highlight for the Greenworks outdoor power equipment lineup. In addition to its zero emissions and no gas/oil hassles, it’s incredibly quiet. As folks tested speed and handling in the outdoor booth, it was amazing to hear how little noise they make. The blades bring up the decibels some and produce legitimate power, but nowhere near the noise level of a gas ZT.

Greenworks Lithium Z UTV

Best Greenworks Outdoor Power Equipment at GIE 2019 - CU 800 UTV

With its commercial ZT line already in play, Greenworks was also showing off its CU 800 UTV. This completely electric utility vehicle is capable of nearly 30 MPH with a range of 60 miles. You can toss up to 500 pounds of whatever the day throws at you in the back or tow as much as 1500 pounds. Plus, there are plenty of upgrades like a winch, windscreen, mud tires, and even a camo wrap for hunting.

Check out more details from Greenworks or from our visit to Mooresville, NC to see it for ourselves.
