Greenworks Commercial, a leading provider of battery-operated outdoor power equipment, showcased its new charging solutions with the ChargeLink system in October at the 2023 Equip Expo in Louisville, Ky.
In a world where sustainable practices are becoming essential, Greenworks Commercial has enabled an easy transition from gas-powered to battery-powered landscaping equipment.
The ChargeLink battery charging system provides a charging solution that addresses critical concerns for commercial landscapers transitioning to battery-powered equipment, such as run time management and efficient battery handling in the field.
Under the ChargeLink system are five impactful charging solutions to assist landscapers with battery-operated equipment:
ChargeLink: This resolution simplifies the battery charging process. The heart of the system is a versatile charging caddy capable of accommodating six batteries simultaneously. Unlike traditional daisy-chaining methods, the ChargeLink caddy can connect to multiple units, offering greater flexibility.
MultipleZ Charger: This charger enables simultaneous charging for multiple OptimusZ zero-turn mowers. The 240V 50A input provides a full charge in just nine hours. Up to three OptimusZ mowers can charge overnight, making it an ideal solution for commercial operations. The MultipleZ Charger is weather-resistant and designed for outdoor use, with an intuitive on-board screen displaying charge levels.
Shop Charger: Greenworks Commercial’s Shop Charger empowers landscapers to charge up to 60 batteries overnight from a single outlet, streamlining operations and maximizing productivity. The charger’s modular system can scale up to 10 caddies, offering flexibility and efficiency. Features include LED indicators for charge status and constant monitoring for optimal charging.
ETO Platform: Designed to work seamlessly with the OptimusZ battery, the ETO Platform offers quick and convenient field charging for handheld batteries. It securely attaches to OptimusZ mowers, allowing rapid charging with up to six 4.0 Ah batteries from zero to 100 per cent in just 60 minutes. With a 2.0 kW output power and a six-battery capacity, it’s an ideal tool for landscapers on the go.
Energy Box: The Energy Box is a mobile power source that eliminates run time concerns. It offers fast charging for handheld batteries and OptimusZ mowers on the go. Equipped with built-in 4G/GPS monitoring, a 120V 20A AC output, and weather resistance, it provides the flexibility and reliability that landscapers need. With a substantial 16.2 kWh capacity, two 2 kW ChargeLink outputs, and two 6 kW zero-turn mower outputs, it’s a solution for any landscaping operation.
Understanding the challenges landscapers face when transitioning from gas-powered equipment to battery-powered solutions is critical. The company’s charging solutions are designed to alleviate these challenges, facilitating a smooth and worry-free electrification journey for landscapers of all levels.
The ChargeLink system reinforces the company’s commitment to making the electrification journey accessible and efficient for all landscapers. These solutions are expected to hit the market in 2024.
