I didn't even realize Greenworks had a 60V line. Apparently, this mower is exclusive to Lowes (for now). This is a great price for a battery mower in this voltage class, PLUS it has a metal deck which many people prefer...

It seems like this is in-store only. But you can also order online to use the coupon code you generated above, and then select store pickup.

Yeah. Didn't know they made a 60V line either. Do they have other 60V items (trimmer, blower, etc) that can use same batteries? If not, then I'd prefer to wait for 80V deals

I wouldn't get this unless the 60v is compatible with either the 40v or 80v lineup.

I think the 60V line is exclusive to Lowes and is a direct competitor to the eGO line of 56V gear that is exclusive to the Home Depot. I have the full set of the 80V Greenworks Tools (Mower, Snowblower, Blower, Trimmer, Hedge Trimmer & Chainsaw) and they are fantastic! I imagine the 60V is the same with just a little less power but equal to more runtime.

My ONLY gripe is I am unsure how to clean the bottom of the mower when it gets dirty. The manual states to never use a hose to clean the deck. How else do you get caked on grass off of the deck? Using a paint stick to scrape it off until I hear of a better method.

Huh? With the exception of Dewalt's FlexVolt, I haven't ever heard of different voltages being compatible with each other. Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
Either way, being that Lowes is a MAJOR retailer across N America, I would venture to guess that if Greenworks had to put all their proverbial eggs into one basket, it's gonna be with the higher 60V equipment sold through a major chain, and start phasing out the 40V stuff. So in my opinion, it's silly to avoid the 60V stuff unless you already have a bunch of 40 or 80V equipment.

The 40v and 80v lines are established and they both have a decent amount of tools available already.
Both of those voltage lines are available thru multiple retailers (Amazon, target, eBay, etc).
60v only available to Lowe's as of now. Number of tools are limited.
You would have to leap into this lineup blind faith that the line it will expand and doesn't fold.
Greenwork tools and battery that regularly go on same will be incompatible with this.

Right... as I mentioned, *if* someone already has a lot of the 40V tools, it might just be better to stick with those. However, for the many people out there that are just getting into the cordless lawn tools realm, this is a great option. But I'm 99.99% sure that the batteries/tools aren't going to be interchangeable (maybe in a few years when the FlexVolt stuff gets more popular), so until then, people are just going to have to pick a lineup and go with it. And common sense tells us that if everything else is equal, more voltage = more power. So it would be insane for GreenWorks to abandon a 60V line in favor of a weaker 40V lineup, especially when they are both similar in price. But who knows, maybe they'll even keep the 40V stuff around for people with really tiny lawns.

I owned the Greenworks 40V mower and it just wasn't powerful enough for my cookie cutter 5000sq ft lawn. Ended up switching to the Ego 56V which breezes through it like nothing. So even I'd be interested to try this new 60V lineup from Greenworks.

Right. But I only trust them to continue with the 60v line if they sell it beyond Lowe's stores.
Also good to know that 40v mower. I was planning to get that one but now will rethink about it.

I have their 80v mower and I regret ever buying it. They advertise it as having the power of a gas mower, but it can't even keep up with my corded electric. Cutting more than one or two centimeters of growth, it would bog down and stall the motor. It doesn't have enough RPMs to suck all the clippings into the bag either so you end up with lines of clippings all over.

Just a terrible purchase. If this 60v is anything like the 80v, I'd go for something else.

What the hell Greenworks!?!?!?! Having three different battery platforms (20v, 40v, 80v) wasn't enough so you had to go add yet another?

I had similar issues with the 40V when trying to cut my thick Bermuda grass, but I chalked it up to just not being enough power/voltage. However, I've only ever heard/seen positive reviews about the 80V stuff... and nearly all the 80V items on Amazon have at least 4-4.5 stars. Out of curiosity, have you got in touch with Greenworks about your issue? You may have just gotten a lemon.

FWIW I use a hose on the deck of the Ego and haven't had a problem. The battery/electrical stuff is in a waterproof box.

How does the Greenworks compare to this Ryobi from Home Depot? Same price after the $50 off coupon

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-.../206481611


I don't own any Greenworks or Ryobi equipment, so I don't have an investment either way. I just know my gas mower took a shit tail end of last year and I've been looking for a deal on a new one and will need one within the next couple weeks as the grass is starting to grow again. Never owned a battery operated mower, but that this point I need something reliable and don't want to break the bank. I have maybe 1500 - 2000 sq feet of grass total, so not that much...

Thanks!

Personally, I wouldn't go with any 40V mowers unless you have a really tiny yard (which it sounds like you do). They seem to just get bogged down too easy from lack of power in taller grass. But the 40V might be fine for your situation. You could always go try the Ryobi (assuming they have it in stock at your store) for a couple cuts, and if it doesn't work for your needs, it's easy enough to return it. These cordless mowers are getting more and more popular, and I think will continue to drop in price as more competition joins the market.

However, being that they're the same price... it seems like a no brainer to get the more powerful 60V mower.
