Pro

  • Smart Systems

    The smart systems that Greenworks Pro is bringing to the table will allow for you to clear anywhere up to one acre of land with this cordless jet blower. The Digital Pro brushless motor provides the quietest and efficient operation that will last for years. The brushless motor is more powerful to the brushed motors. Also, when fully charged, it performs very similarly to a gas-powered blower.

    The turbo speed provides a wind speed of 580 CFM at 145 MPH. By selecting the turbo option, you will be able to confidently tackle those wet leaves that are not easy to blow out of the grass. This lithium-ion technology on this Greenworks is user-friendly with helpful details such as the on-board battery life indicator. This makes Greenworks a user-friendly tool with additional features such as this indicator. While the typical battery will last 20 to 30 minutes and that may be easy to keep track of.

  • Reduced Fatigue

    Having smart systems combined with ergonomic designs is also an important part of the Greenworks Pro Cordless Jet Blower. Normally when using a leaf blower, you are expecting some tiredness or fatigue due to maneuvering this powerful tool. Greenworks Pro has cruise control placed in a convenient location, so you are not inconveniencing yourself looking for the option.

    Other smart designs would be the variable speed trigger and the comfort over mold grip. When your blower is designed for comfort of use and designed with longevity in mind, you can tackle many jobs without the fear of either hurting yourself or damaging the tool.

Greenworks PRO Features

Con

  • Defective Features

    The turbo button is an added feature to help boost air to give better coverage. However, there is a flaw within this option. With a 2.5 Ah battery, there is only so much power this jet blower will provide even if there is an 80-Volt charger included to always recharge. The turbo button was created to give the boost needed, however, it tends to be used as a regular setting.

    The power on this battery-operated jet blower is a little less than anticipated. Using the turbo button quickly increases the wind speed. The issue comes into play when the blower only performs at its best when it is on the turbo button setting. It is an inconvenience to always hold the turbo button to achieve the best performance from this cordless jet blower.

  • Short Battery Life

    Typically, when deciding which type of blower to purchase, there is a clear distinction between the three major types. With cordless versus corded, the flexibility in moving all over will steer you towards a cordless option. Once this is determined, there is still the question on whether a gas-powered blower or a battery powered blower would work best for you.

    For many, having to carry around a heavier gas-powered tool would be less than ideal. However, with a gas-powered blower, you most than likely always have more power than with a battery-powered jet blower. The 2.5 Ah battery is limited in how long you may use. Also, since the best performance happens when the turbo button is pushed, it will cause the battery to need recharging quicker.

Wrap Up

A cordless, battery-powered blower can either perform less than par or can be a very close competitor to the gas-powered options. The Greenworks Pro Cordless Jet Blower comes with the 80-volt charger and the 2.5 Ah battery. It is easily assembled by simply loading the battery into the tool and turning it on. With it not being a gas-powered blower, there is no pull chain start and it is as simple as flipping on the switch.

The 10 lbs jet blower can surprisingly handle up to one acre or more. The downfall to the battery-powered jet blower is that there is a limit on how long you can use this Greenworks tool. The 2.5 Ah battery is said to last 20 to 30 minutes, however, there are still cases where the battery lasted longer, but not by much. It is always recommended to purchase a backup battery just in case your job becomes a little more than anticipated.

The Greenworks Pro would be a nice addition to your other power tools as it has smartly designed operating systems that are not only quiet but eco-friendlier due to no fumes emitting. The brushless motor gives a somewhat silent, but powerful performance.

Other smartly designed features would be the cruise control and event the hand grips are working to eliminate any fatigue or discomfort that may have been experienced through other blowers. The lithium-ion technology makes for a lightweight tool that can be used on your residential or commercial property with ease. Above all, the manufacturer ensures a 4-year tool and a 2-year warranty for the battery.
