CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Greenworks Commercial, which offers battery-powered outdoor equipment for landscaping, turf management and golf maintenance professionals, announces that it has expanded its 82-volt system with two powerful new tools that make professional hedging and pruning jobs easier than ever before – the GHX 200 Pole Hedger and the GHD 260 26” Dedicated Hedge Trimmer.
Like all of the tools included in the Greenworks Commercial 82V system, both the new GHX 200 Pole Hedger and GHD 260 Dedicated Hedge Trimmer utilize a proprietary Greenworks Commercial 82-volt lithium-ion battery to provide superior performance capable of maintaining even the most challenging of hedges and shrubbery.
The GHX 200 Pole Hedger’s 20” laser cut dual action blades are driven by a direct-drive brushless motor that provides high torque, zero-maintenance and zero-exhaust — all while reducing vibrations and noise. With its hassle-free “instant on” start switch and variable-speed trigger, the new GHX 200 is convenient, quiet and efficient.
The Greenworks Commercial 82-volt Brushless Pole Hedger provides all the power and function landscape and turf management professionals need to maintain problem hedges and shrubs:
- 20” Laser Cut Dual Action Blades for precision 19mm cut capacity
- Direct-Drive Brushless motor to deliver more torque and longer life – 3,600 SPM
- Articulating head for easy operation and versatile cutting - with 7 adjustable settings from -45° to 90°
- Fixed 205cm shaft offers longer range to effectively trim hard-to-reach hedges and shrubs
In addition to eliminating the odors associated with gas-fueled tools, the GHX 200 produces 5X less vibration than gas-powered competitors, reducing fatigue and extending the workday. Finally, the push trigger start eliminates pull cords completely, making starting and stopping the tool safe, easy and convenient.
The 82-volt 26” Dedicated Hedge Trimmer offers many of the same green-friendly and efficiency-increasing performance attributes as the Pole Hedger, but employs a 26” laser cut dual action blade system that delivers a 1” cut capacity. The GHD 260 is lightweight and powerful, providing up to 3,000 SPM performance with a weight-saving plug-in waist/ backpack battery design. In addition, the 82V 26” Dedicated Hedge Trimmer offers a full-rotating handle, offering users a wide range of angles of attack on the jobsite.
The Greenworks Commercial 82-volt Dedicated Hedge Trimmer utilizes the following key technologies to deliver the ultimate in environmentally-friendly hedging power and performance:
- 26” Laser Cut Dual Action Blades for precision 1” cut capacity
- Direct-Drive Brushless motor to deliver more torque and longer life – 3,000 SPM
- Plug-in Waist/Backpack battery design reduces carry weight during operation
- 360-degree rotating handle allows users to attack the job from the easiest angle
“Just as the heavy hedging and pruning season is beginning for most of North America, we are excited to bring landscape pros better performing and more versatile tools than they’ve ever had before,” said Tony Marchese, director of independent retail for Greenworks North America. “Like all of our tools in the 82-Volt system, the new Pole Hedger and Dedicated Hedge Trimmer provide users with high performance in an environmentally responsible way. We’re excited to get these tools into our dealer networks this week.”
