Best Cordless Mower – Check out What Tools in Action Found

Welcome to Mower week.  Today we have a head to head.  Stay tuned because the rest of the week, we will cover each mower in greater detail.  Five years ago if you asked me if we would have ever had a head to head for cordless mowers, I probably would have laughed.  See back then I was all about gas, all about power.  The cordless mowers back then were awful.  They were cheap, they didn’t last and let’s face it, manufacturers just came out of the gate too soon because they were so interested in being first to the...

Greenworks 80V 18″ Cordless DigiPro Chainsaw – Gas Killer

Think green!  Fossil fuels are deemed evil and soon will be eradicated from this planet.  Well maybe in about 70 years, but Greenworks is one step closer to making a no gas a reality for millions of property owners.  We were highly impressed with the Greenworks 40V chainsaw that we saw at GIE a few years back.  The 80V has twice the power and longer run time. When we first got the 80v Chainsaw we took it out to a huge cottonwood tree that we had dropped last year and never chopped up.  After charging the battery for 30...

Greenworks 40V Cordless Snowblower

Greenworks has made a pretty good name for itself in the US market. There are many advantages to a cordless electric snow blower.  Emissions, sound and ease of use to name a few. For our tests we went through about 8 inches of wet melting packed snow.  8 inches is the recommended maximum for this unit. To our surprise the unit worked its way through to clear a path.  For light snow on most small properties this is a great choice. The unit will get up to 45 minutes of run-time, in our test we got roughly 30-35 minutes though...

We usually cover GIE, but this year it we couldn’t make it.  Greenworks has announced a new pro line that has 80 Volts of power.  This is the highest we have seen in outdoor power equipment.  Electric OPE is really starting to push into the Pro market especially with he release of the DeWALT 40V line up.  I have been pretty happy with the 40V Greenworks line and the 80V looks very impressive. 80V 20″ DigiPro Snow Thrower – $999   80V 24″ Cordless DigiPro Hedge Trimmer – $169   80V 21″ Cordless DigiPro Lawn Mower – $399  ...

GreenWorks 25302 G-Max 40V Lawn Mower

We first saw Greenworks a GIE and became quickly impressed with their large assortment of lawn and garden tools.  Not only do they have a large assortment of lawn and garden tools, but they seem to be pretty good quality.  As for this mower, I would have to say it seems solid except for the handle.  Now the handle should last you, but it does feel flimsy.  As for mowers this mower is very quiet.  To start the mower, just press a button and pull on the handle.  There you go, no gas, no spark plugs, no mess and...

Greenworks 24V Drill/Driver and Impact Review

It wasn’t until lately that I started hearing about Greenworks.  In fact, I never heard of them until you guys started emailing us about them.  Then we ended up seeing them at the GIE show in 2013.  I have to saw I was pretty impressed with their line of lawn and garden tools.  We watched them use the chain saw and had a chance to look at their mowers.  While we were there, they told us about their new power tools coming out, the drill/driver and the impact.  At first I thought to myself, great just what we need,...
