Innovation is key to staying ahead of the curve when it comes to landscaping and snow removal. Greenworks Commercial, is breaking new ground with their all-electric commercial vehicle line, including Zero Turns (ZTs) and UTVs, along with cutting-edge accessories like their latest plow blade prototype. Let’s delve into the features and potential of this new equipment.

Product Development Manager, Mason Kane, emphasizes the challenges that snow and ice present in the landscaping industry, traditionally tackled with gas and diesel equipment. However, Greenworks is changing the narrative by showcasing the capabilities of their battery-powered machines not only in spring but also in fall and winter tasks like plowing, snowblowing, and scraping.

What sets Greenworks apart is their ability to leverage the confidence and reliability of their battery technology, eliminating the need for secondary power sources.
