Customer reviewsGreenWorks Pro 80V great... but with some design flaws.
Let me start by saying, I love the Greenworks Pro 80v tool lineup I ve purchased every 80v tool except for the snow blower... don t really need it here in TX. The string trimmer and all the other tools are working well and have good power and reasonable run times on the 2Ah battery. The lawnmower really needs the 4Ah battery, as I ve only been getting 23 minutes of runtime out of the 2Ah batteries in the mower. But, my grass has been kind of high both times I mowed, causing the mower to stay revved up most of the time I ve been mowing. The mower revs up automatically when under higher load i.e. deeper grass . The 4Ah battery lasts much longer. Haven t put the stopwatch to it while it s in the mower , but it s probably doing 45-50 minutes or so. Not bad at all... Just wish it was a little more affordable
