CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The leading provider of battery operated-outdoor power equipment, Greenworks Commercial, is pleased to announce the newest member of its award-winning professional duty line with the new 48TH12 48V 12” Brushless Top Handle Saw. Being 30% lighter than its gas competition, the 48TH12 is much easier to maneuver in arbor applications. Plus, this saw will be the first product in the Greenworks Commercial line to include the 21700 lithium-ion battery cells. The 21700 battery cells provide more power and lighter weight to its users, along with longer life and improved run-time. 

Features & benefits Include:

  • Instant Start Technology: no prime, no choke, no pulling necessary
  • 48V 21700 Lithium-Ion Battery offers extreme power with longer run-time
  • Brushless motor delivering more power, quieter operation and longer life
  • Steel Bucking Spikes for more controlled sawing
  • Automatic oiler to keep maintenance to a minimum
  • Lightweight 12” Bar and Chain design for improved precision in tight spaces

The 48TH12 makes job sites safer with easier maneuverability, all while producing 50% less noise and 5x less vibration than gas powered top saws. This means the long-term benefits for professionals include less fatigue, less hearing damage, with top-of-the-line productivity. More time will be spent working, because thanks to an automatic oiler and elimination of pull cords, the 48TH12 will be in the shop less than its gas competitors.

“Arborists that demoed this tool raved about how the new 21700 battery cells extended the run-time and increased the power, providing performance that exceeded all of their expectations,” said Tony Marchese, Commercial Business Unit Leader for Greenworks North America.  “While the tool comes standard with a 12” bar and chain, we will offer both 10” and 14” options that can be modified at point-of-sale in the dealer channel, providing pros with a new degree of customization in our top handle offering.”

The 48TH12 will be available beginning January 2020 through the Carswell, Carswell OEI, Conniff, Edney, PACE, Celtic, GC Duke, EFS, LL Johnson, and Steven Willand independent dealer networks. The 48TH12 kit (including tool, battery and charger) is priced at $499 and comes with a two-year warranty on the battery and tool.
