CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Greenworks Commercial has expanded its 82-volt line with the new GBB 700 Dual Battery Port Backpack Blower. This commercial grade backpack blower is the first cordless blower of its kind to offer the performance and power needed to support landscapers, turf management crews and golf maintenance professionals.
The options of 690 CFM and 165 mph are now available on demand at the push of a button. Operators can customize their performance and power usage with the variable speed trigger, cruise control lever, and turbo button. This unit is equipped with two battery ports that come standard with automatic battery switch-over. This patented feature automatically switches from one battery to the next once the first battery is depleted, offering extended uninterrupted runtime.
Like all the tools included in the Greenworks Commercial family, the new GBB 700 Dual Battery Port Backpack Blower is powered by Greenworks Commercial’s proprietary 82-volt lithium-ion battery platform and brushless motor technology. However, this unit has taken this battery platform to the next level with its unique Power Station feature. Simply disconnect the blower tube and motor housing from the side of the unit and the blower is transformed into a mobile power source capable of pugging in and powering any of the other 82-volt hand help equipment. This allows users to extend their runtime without adding weight to the tool.
