Greenworks 82V Chainsaw Equals Gas Power
Greenworks has a battery-powered chainsaw solution designed for everything from maintenance cuts to full-on tree felling. Now, the Greenworks Commercial 82V Chainsaw (GS181) brings an 18-inch bar and chain to the party. Even better, the company claims that this 82V saw fires off the same sort of power that you’d get from a 50cc gas engine.

Greenworks Commercial 18-inch Chainsaw Pro Features
18-inch Bar and Chain
The Greenworks Commercial 82V Chainsaw features a brushless motor that moves the 18-inch chain 67.2 ft/sec. A 3/8-inch chain pitch delivers a design that cuts through limbs with minimal kickback.
Steel Bucking Spikes
The Greenworks GS181 chainsaw also gives you steel bucking spikes. These provide the expected leverage for more controlled cutting.
Even More Features You’d Find on a Gas Saw
An auto-oiler on the Greenworks GS181 keeps the chain lubed up and running smoothly without a whole lot of input from the operator. We like that it uses standard bar nuts and not a tool-less design. For Pros, you get much better stability out of a traditional bar tensioning system.
Also, a full metal wrap-around handle minimizes vibration and offers maximum control over your cuts. When dealing with larger trees and more commercial-oriented work, we like to see reinforced handles like this as opposed to plastic.
Of course, all of this comes in a battery-powered package that produces less noise and requires less maintenance, but which also doesn’t compromise on power.
The Greenworks Commercial 82V 18-inch Chainsaw retails for $349 as a bare tool. It comes with a 2-year warranty on both the tool and the battery.
