CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenworks Tools, leaders in battery-powered outdoor equipment for DIY-consumers and landscape professionals, announced today that it has expanded its cordless outdoor power equipment offering with the introduction of its new 60-volt family of products.
The Greenworks Pro 60-volt battery platform – the heart of the new line – utilizes high-quality lithium-ion technology in combination with high-efficiency brushless electric motors to provide best-in-class power and torque, while reducing noise and vibration, and completely eliminating emissions.
"At Greenworks, we constantly strive to innovate within our category," said Chris Allen, President of Greenworks Tools. "Built with that focus on innovation, each tool in the Greenworks Pro 60-volt line is engineered to improve the user experience. Push button start technology eliminates pull cords in every tool across the platform, while the 540 CFM Turbo Boost button provides added power on-demand in the Backpack Blower. Patented Smart Cut Technology in the Mower maximizes run-time by keeping the blade speed at an optimal level based on the thickness of the turf. All of these features ensure that the new 60-volt products will make everyday yard work easier, but also have the reliable power needed to tackle tougher jobs."
"The new 60-volt product is a perfect complement to the products we're currently selling at multiple retailers across the country," Allen added. "We aim to have the right tool for every consumer and by adding the 60-volt equipment to our 24, 40 and 80-volt consumer lines, and 82-volt commercial-grade equipment, we're one step closer to that goal."
The core line is comprised of the 60-volt Mower, String Trimmer, Hand-held Axial Blower, Hedge Trimmer, Chainsaw, and Backpack Blower. Additional 60-volt specialty tools – like the Pole Hedge Trimmer – and other accessories will also be available. The same battery can power all of the products in Greenworks' 60-volt offering, allowing consumers to transition the battery between different tools in the line for a complete landscaping solution.
The Greenworks Pro 60-volt equipment can be purchased as tool and battery combo kits or the bare tools and batteries may be purchased individually. The line is available exclusively at select Lowe's locations across the U.S., and on-line at www.lowes.com/Greenworks.
