Greenworks Commercial’s 82V 30-Inch Lawn Mower Gives Pros the Brand’s Largest Walk-Behind Yet
Greenworks Commercial has wasted no time in expanding its 82V battery platform and, specifically, an abundance of 82V lawn care solutions in its 2022 lineup. Part of this growing fleet is the Greenworks Commercial 30-inch lawn mower, out-sizing its 25-inch predecessor.
The manufacturer designed this model to persuade professionals to dump their gas-fueled units for battery-powered gear. So without further ado, we’ll look at what it has to offer within the commercial landscaping market.

Greenworks is notorious for poorly designed and built equipment, not to mention lack of replacement parts and lousy customer service. If they want to be a player in next generation lawncare I expect more from them. I like what I see in the article, but I need to see it in action with a honest review. I need a mower this size, but I’m waiting on trying out the ryobi vs. Greenworks.
