Greenworks has moved through a seeming identity crisis since their initial 40V line hit the market with solid success. We’ve seen 24V, 80V, 82V (part of their commercial series), and now 60V.

Having grown up on a larger property, dealing with unruly hedges and landscaping became part of my job. I had sisters, and while they were certainly capable, oftentimes the cutting duties fell to me.
