Pole extends to 9', farther reach than many electric Greenworks pole saws. Not only does this model have the longest reach, but it can handle the biggest jobs, too. The powerful 80 volt motor can cut through limbs of moderate-to-thick size, and can chop logs of the same size. The extended 10" chain on this model gives it even more cutting power. Stands out for its unusual ability to offer the mobility of a cordless unit with this much power.
At just over 12 pounds, this model weighs more than most others, and some users may find it difficult to maneuver.
The 40 volt motor is surprisingly powerful, and can even handle some thick limbs of soft wood varieties. The pole extends to 8', providing enough reach for trimming dead or overgrown tree limbs most users encounter on their property. The 8" chain is oiled by an automatic oiling system, and includes an easy adjust tightening system that makes chain tightening simple.
Some users report that this unit uses oil more quickly than some, and may leak during storage.
The 24 volt motor is powerful enough for the small landscaping and wood cutting tasks of most households. Pole extends up to 8.3'. It includes the popular easy-tightening and auto-oiling features available on most Greenworks models, making this unit both easy to use and durable enough to stand up to moderate use.
This model is not designed for frequent use or especially large jobs, and it may wear out more quickly in a household with such demanding cutting needs.
For users with frequent, large cutting jobs, this 6 amp motor provides an impressive amount of cutting power. You never need to stop working to recharge because of the unit's corded power source. This model also offers an impressively long reach, and the head detaches from the pole to convert into a chain saw when that is the preferable tool. At 10.4 pounds, it is one of the lightest Greenworks models as well.
While the corded power provides some additional cutting power, it also limits the mobility of this model.
The 2 Ah battery offers enough run time to complete most household cutting and trimming jobs, and the automatic oiling system means users do not need to stop working to oil their chain. The 8' telescoping pole can reach low hanging branches and the tops of many common household trees, while the 40 volt motor offers enough power to handle limbs of moderate thickness. Users with hedges too large for the saw will appreciate the addition of the hedge trimming tool, which offers the same power as the saw, but is able to handle even the largest hedges with its extended reach.
While the hedge trimmer works well on jobs requiring reach, it does not do as well on close-up jobs, and may require users to switch to the saw during hedge work.
