Greenworks GS 110 Chainsaw First Look – Cordless Top Handle
If you’re hoping to make less noise and vibration with your chainsaw, while burning less gas, then the Greenworks GS 110 chainsaw may be the answer. Greenworks Commercial just released this new small top-handle tree care saw. The intending users are the tree care professionals and arborists. The top-handle design makes it easy for single-handed cuts while tethered in a tree.
“Professional arborists who use gas-powered chainsaws have for years complained about the lost productivity from having to get out of the tree and down on the ground to restart their saws after stalling or being turned off,” said Tony Marchese, Director of Independent Retail for Greenworks North America. “With our new lithium-ion battery powered top-handle GS 110, there are no such concerns because the saw is easily restarted at the push of a button. Say goodbye to the days of getting out of the tree every time you need a restart, and hello to a new level of productivity and performance.”
- No gas needed
- Single 40-volt Lithium-Ion Battery and Brushless Motos
- Integrated D-ring for tethering
- Small and compact
- 1/2 the Noise of a gas-powered saw
- 5X less vibration than the gas equivalent
Another new product that we got to play with on our trip to @greenworkstools US Headquarters. This is the #Greenworks GS110 Top-Handle chainsaw. These are not just little saws, they serve an important purpose. Top-Handle saws are used by Arborists or climbers to prune tree tops. They are preferred to be small and light, but still be powerful enough to cut limbs in a hurry. Typical Greenworks Commercial tools are 82-volt; however, the GS110 breaks that mold. In an effort to be slimmer and lighter, Greenworks uses their 40V elite battery to power the GS110. We think this is a good choice. Having a battery-powered saw in a tree sure beats trying to start/restart a gas saw while dangling in the air. . . . . . #chainsaw #batterypowered #lithium #landscaping #mower #landscaping #lawncare #arborist #treecare #turf #turfcare #ope #tools #cordlesssaw #treepro #trees
Greenworks GS 110 Chainsaw Features
Since the Greenworks GS 110 chainsaw is made for tree care professionals, it includes an integrated folding D-ring. This ring makes it easy for tethering the saw to the Pro. To start the saw, the user simply presses the power button and releases the chain brake. Then, once the trigger is pulled, the chain spins to life. No fuel, no cranking, and 1/2 the noise of a gas saw.
The small size of the Greenworks GS 110 makes it very easy to operate with one hand. This saw is very balanced with the top-handle and the short 10-inch bar. Also, a single 40-volt battery powers the GS 110 which keeps the weight down. Greenworks typical Commercial products include a large 82-volt battery.
A brushless motor, powered by the 40-volt battery, delivers more power and a longer life. An automatic oiler keeps the oil on the chain to aid with lubrication, heat, and chain-stretch. Even while delivering the power of a gas saw, the Greenworks GS 110 chainsaw has 5-times less vibration and emits half the noise.
We had the privilege of using the Greenworks GS 110 chainsaw at the recent Greenworks Media Event a few weeks ago. This little chainsaw cuts really quick and is easy to handle. The steel bucking spikes could be a little more aggressive, but it still got the job done. The GS 110 will sell for $279 for the bare tool and it includes a 2-year warranty. We’ll be getting one in for review soon, so stay posted.
