The GreenWorks Pro 80V 20-Inch Cordless Snow Thrower can be a replacement for some gas fueled equipmet. With no gas/oil mixing to worry about, its super convenient. With the added benefit of electric starting and no maintenance the GreenWorks Pro 80V sounds like a solid investment. It suffers from a few setbacks but overall if you are dealing with light snow, and mostly for walkways or small driveways then you will be fine with this unit.

Power and Performance

Up to a 45 min run time and only a 30 minute charge time makes the GreenWorks Pro 80V 20-Inch Cordless Snow Thrower a great choice for small areas. It has an 80 volt lithium ion brushless motor that has reliability greater than that of a gas engine and no maintenance. The GreenWorks Pro 80V also comes equipped with an electric push button start. Covering a clearing width of 20 inches and 10 inches deep it’s suited for walkways and patios.  This unit has a 180 degree rotating chute for snow dispersal. The lights on this machine are very bright dual LED Panasonic cells. They will outlast the machine!

Manueverability

Without the need for a gas fueled engine, the GreenWorks Pro 80V 20-Inch Cordless Snow Thrower is one of the lightest sno throwers on the markets. Which is good for young kids learning responsibility, or for the elderly or disabled. It weighs in at only 33 lbs. Has minimal vibrations, reduced noise, and zero fumes. It doesn’t have a fancy driveline or power steering, but it doesn’t need them to be easy to move around. I do wish this one had tires large enough for chains.

The the GreenWorks Pro 80V 20-Inch Cordless Snow Thrower thing is great for small situations, or for the minimal cleanup after a light dusting. It has a lot of pros for carbon footprints, and for being light enough for every member of the family. If you deal with any kind of heavy snow however this unit falls short and your money is well spent elsewhere. My opinion is don’t buy the hype in an all green model, get something durable, reliable, with longevity you can trust. The last thing you want is a broken snow thrower when you are late for work.
