3 Best GreenWorks Pole Saws - Reviews
40 V, 2.0 AH
24 V, 2.0 AH
#1. GreenWorks 20672 G-MAX 40V Pole Saw
Editor's Rating: (4.4 / 5)
The GreenWorks 20672 is one of the oldest and finest cordless pole saw model made by this company. Old does not necessarily mean bad, as we will see with this model. However, it is the most expensive model in this review. But, for very good reason!
Under the hood lies a powerful 40 Volts 2 Ah lithium-ion battery that powers the motor. It has enough voltage to send enough power to the motor, which in turn sends some serious torque to the chain bar. With such power, and despite being a cordless model, you can easily use this pole saw for heavy-duty cutting applications. Additionally, charging this unit can be done in record-breaking time which is usually less than an hour. You have the option of buying this model with or without the battery or charger for some significant savings if you already own a charger and battery for the G-MAX pole saw line. When fully charged, this model will allow you to perform 50 cuts on 4 x 4 inches wood. Not the best we have seen, but also not the worst.
The 8-inch chain bar in this model is long enough to cut branches quickly and easily. Along with the 8-inch bar, the 3-piece telescopic aluminum shaft can be extended to 8 feet which are very decent especially considering that the maximum outreach usually depends on your own height. Therefore, you can expect from 12 to 15 feet outreach with the pole saw.
Lastly, for more ease-of-use, this unit includes an automatic boiler system which automatically lubricates the chain while you cut. This helps boost efficiency and provide greater ease-of-use as you do not have to constantly oil the chain manually.
- Automatic lubrication system
- Powerful 40 Volts lithium ion battery provides a smooth and clean cut on any type of branch, knots, and nodes
- 3-piece shaft can quickly and easily be extended or retracted
- Fully cordless for greater maneuverability when working in awkward positions
- Can be purchased with or without a charger for significant savings
- Chain can be tensioned quickly and easily in a matter of seconds
- Definitely the price. It is an expensive model
- The chain bar cannot be removed and used as a stand-alone chainsaw
Who Should Buy?
The GreenWorks 20672 provides exceptional maneuverability and power on the job. We recommend this model to those who have to perform a lot of trimming throughout the day. This is a pole saw that will not disappoint and over deliver on the job.
#2. GreenWorks 20192 6.5-Amp Electric Pole Saw
Editor's Rating: (4.3 / 5)
Second, we have the GreenWorks 20192 which is the most affordable GreenWorks pole saw in this review. This is an electric pole saw. This device is powered by a 6.5-Amp motor which is sufficient for cutting branches of less than 1-1/2 inches in diameter have very easily.
This particular model includes an 8-inch Oregon bar and chain which means that it is exceptionally durable and long-lasting as it is made from hardened steel. Additionally, this bar has a low profile which allows it to trim branches in hard to reach and tight areas. It even has a very convenient chain tensioning system that will quickly and easily adjusts the chain automatically for you. This is a lifesaver and timesaver, considering that you almost always have to retention the chain after a few minutes with a pole saw.
It also features an automatic boiler system which lubricates the chain and bar for you. Again, you save time and gain in productivity with the GreenWorks 20192.
This model has a 3-piece aluminum shaft that is clearly a GreenWorks favorite design style. The main advantage of this shaft system is that it is very easy to extend or retract the pole bar depending on your use. Lastly, it is also good to mention that the handle of this pole saw is coated with a soft rubber material which makes handling very comfortable. In fact, you can use this pole saw four long hours without hand fatigue.
- Lightweight and comfortable to hold
- Pole can quickly and easily be extended or retracted thanks to the 3-piece shaft system
- Automatic boiler lubricates the chain involved for you
- Long-lasting and durable. 8-inch Oregon chain and bar made from steel
- Low noise and a very efficient motor that also produces up to 50% fewer vibrations when compared to other pole saws
- Comes with a handy carry bag
- This is an electric corded model, so an electric outlet is required to operate this pole saw. It can't be used in a remote location without power
Who Should Buy?
If you found that the other models in this review are above your budget, and can live with the fact that the GreenWorks 20192 is electric corded, then go right ahead and get this model. It has the same features as the GreenWorks 20672 G-MAX but at a significantly lower price. That is some great savings right there!
#3. GreenWorks 20352 24V 8-Inch Cordless Pole Saw
Editor's Rating: (3.9 / 5)
Last in this review, we have the GreenWorks 20352. This model has a more modest lithium battery rated at only 24 Volts. While this GreenWorks pole saw has less torque provided to the chain than the GreenWorks 20672, it has more than sufficient power for casual and general-purpose pruning or trimming tasks. It still gives you 50 cuts on a full charge when used on 4 x 4 inches lumber.
As with most cordless GreenWorks pole saw in this review, you have the ability to purchase this unit with or without the battery and charger for some savings. Other than the battery power, it has the same features, length, and build construction as the other models reviewed.
- Excellent build construction from aluminum. Durable and long-lasting
- Shaft is easy to operate and can be extended or retracted quickly
- Very efficient motor produces 50% fewer vibrations and 20% more power
- Battery can fully be charged in less than an hour
- Electric start. Start immediately with the push of a button for greater ease-of-use
Who Should Buy?
This model is less powerful than the GreenWorks 20672 but comes at a more affordable price. If you do not need the power of the 20672 and will be using your pole saw for trimming small branches, then you can consider this model as the better purchase since it is more value for money.
As we have seen, all GreenWorks pole saws are absolute champions when it comes to trimming branches on hard-to-reach and tall trees. This is not a brand that will disappoint. You can choose any model on this list that fit your needs, and it will serve you well for years to come.
