Greenworks Commercial introduces new GE 080 82-volt stick edger

March 20, 2018 -  By

GreenworksGreenworks Commercial has expanded its 82-volt system with the new commercial-grade GE 080 stick edger.

The GE 080 stick edger uses a proprietary Greenworks Commercial 82-volt lithium-ion battery and features an “instant on” start switch and variable-speed trigger. The unit’s 8-inch heat-treated blade includes a cast steel blade guard, and is driven by a direct-drive brushless motor that provides high torque, zero-maintenance and zero-exhaust—all while reducing vibrations and noise, according to Greenworks.

In addition to eliminating the odors associated with gas-fueled tools, the product yields 50 percent less noise and produces five times less vibration than gas equivalents, said Greenworks.

The push trigger start eliminates pull cords completely and extends the battery’s charge by eliminating unnecessary run-time on the job site.

“We are excited to continue to build on our award-winning 82-volt system of outdoor power equipment, with new solutions for landscape and turf management professionals that encounter new noise and emission ordinances every day,” said Chris Allen, president of Greenworks North America. “Like all of our tools in the 82-volt system, the new Stick Edger provides users with high performance in an environmentally responsible way. The GE 080 is up to the toughest of edging tasks, so we’re excited to see pros begin putting it to the test this spring.”

The Greenworks Commercial stick edger will be available through the Carswell, Conniff Sales and Steven Willand independent dealer networks and SiteOne, beginning April 15.
