History of Greenworks Commercial
Greenworks Commercial has been designing and manufacturing professional-grade, battery-operated tools since 2002. That’s close to 20 years of experience specializing in battery-powered outdoor power equipment. Greenworks Commercial has focused entirely on battery-powered tools. This focus has allowed them to develop superior brushless motor technology and one of the most advanced lithium-ion batteries on the market. Furthermore, they set the standard for professional-grade, battery-powered equipment by being the ONLY brand that has 100 percent focus on the design and manufacturing of battery-powered products. Additionally, they are the ONLY brand that has an entire line of pro-grade, 100 percent battery-powered outdoor power equipment.
Their lineup includes blowers, chainsaws, string trimmers, hedge trimmers, pole saws, edgers, snow throwers, tillers, winches, lawn mowers, zero-turn mowers, and even utility vehicles! The entirety of this lineup provides the same output that you would expect from traditional gas-powered equipment. You can get the same performance, power, and runtime using lithium-ion batteries as you get burning gas and oil. So get rid of the noise, hassle and harmful emissions by simply subtracting the gas.
Greenworks Commercial Timeline
Yin Chen, the Founder and Owner of Greenworks Commercial, established Greenworks in Tianan District of Changzou City in 2002. They introduced their first North American product — a lithium-ion battery-operated string trimmer — in 2007 and their first lawn mower was introduced in 2011 running off a 40 volt battery. Just three years later, in 2014, they released an entire lineup of tools that ran on 80 volt batteries. By 2016, Greenworks produced 80 percent of all lithium-ion battery-powered outdoor power equipment. Over the next three years, they would go on to produce 82 Volt Zero-Turn Mowers, UTV’s, and Chainsaws respectively. Now, they have a full lineup of 82 Volt equipment.

Even their packaging is environmentally friendly!
In creating an environmentally conscious company, Yin Chen has been able to develop his tools in an extraordinary way. Read on to see what truly sets Greenworks Commercial apart from the rest.
People often think that choosing battery-powered equipment means they have to give up power and run-time. This isn’t the case anymore with the advancements in battery technology. The 82 Volt battery allows Greenworks Commercial equipment to have a full-day of run time without forfeiting power.
Low Maintenance, Hassle-Free Equipment
Since Greenworks Commercial equipment runs a brushless motor, they do not require the same maintenance and care as a gas-powered engine. Gas-engines require a ton of upkeep. For example, you have to buy or mix fuel, service carburetors, replace spark plugs, and clean air filters. By replacing that engine with a brushless motor, you eliminate downtime. Moreover, there are no pesky pull-cords or gas that needs mixing. Start up your equipment with the simply push of a button or squeeze of a trigger. If you make a living from your tools, then you know the importance of having equipment that is ready when you are.
No Gas. No Oil. Zero Fumes
Stop budgeting for gas and oil. The price of gas is constantly fluctuating plus you have to store all your fuel somewhere. Not to mention, the mess and headache that comes with mixing up fuel. With Greenworks Commercial, simply charge up your battery and go. Additionally, you don’t have to take up space with all those fuel cans. Since Greenworks’ batteries are interchangeable between most equipment, just grab a back up battery or two and a charger.
Further, getting rid of gas, gets rid of the awful smell. Your equipment will be cleaner and produce less odor. With that in mind, it becomes possible to store your equipment in your house or haul smaller equipment inside a car.
Quiet, Lightweight Equipment
Get to work earlier. With lighter, quieter equipment an earlier start is possible. Battery-powered tools are up to 50 percent quieter than gas-powered ones. Plus, with a lighter, more ergonomic design, you will experience less fatigue. What’s more, brushless motors drastically reduce vibration lessening user fatigue even further.
Lower Lifetime Cost
There’s always a cost to getting new equipment, but an investment in Greenworks Commercial equipment will pay off. First off, you will save a ton in fuel costs. Secondly, with fewer overall parts, there is less that could need fixing. Not to mention, a brushless motor generally has a longer lifecycle than a gas engine. Thirdly, Greenworks Commercial batteries LAST. You can expect at least 500 charges out of a single battery, and once the battery no longer works, it is 100 percent recyclable. Finally, their batteries and chargers are largely interchangeable, reducing the upfront cost of batteries and chargers. On average, you can save about 3 time the total cost of ownership over a 5 year period.
