New 18” Brushless Chain Saw Delivers True Gas Replacement Power and Increased Cutting Efficiency with Less Noise to Landscape and Tree Service Crews


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The leading provider of battery operated-outdoor power equipment, Greenworks Commercial, has announced today that it has expanded its award-winning line of 82-Volt tools with the new GS 181 Chainsaw.  The GS 181 is Greenworks Commercial’s most powerful chainsaw to date, delivering to landscape and tree service crews unparalleled cutting speed and efficiency for even the most rigorous of jobs, while offering the convenience and environmental benefits of lithium-ion power.   Whether its user is felling a heavy tree or cutting firewood, the GS 181 is up to the task. 


“The GS 181 has a shock-and-awe effect as soon as you turn it on,” said Tony Marchese, Commercial Business Unit Head for Greenworks America.  “The combination of the 2.5 KW motor and 11,500 RPM Chain speed delivers true gas-replacement performance without any of the noise, fumes or emission concerns.  Without exception, when we demo this saw with landscape pros and arbor professionals it always leaves them speechless.”   


The Greenworks Commercial GS 181 18” Chainsaw is powered by Greenworks Commercial’s proprietary 82-volt lithium-ion battery and brushless motor technology.


Features & Benefits include:


  • Powerful 2.5 KW Motor to power through the toughest of logs
  • 18” Oregon Bar and Chain for optimal cutting performance
  • Brushless motor delivering more power, quieter operation and longer life
  • Mechanical Chain brake for added safety while in use
  • Adjustable Automatic Oiler to keep maintenance to a minimum
  • Magnesium Chassis for superior cooling
  • Heavy Duty Metal Wrap-Around Handle for maximum durability
  • Metal Bucking Spikes to help prevent kickback out of the wood


The GS 181 provides its users with easier operation and a safer work environment yielding 50% less noise and 5x less vibration than gas equivalent products. This protects crews from long term hearing damage and reduces fatigue, all while increasing worker productivity. Finally, by eliminating pull cords and fossil fuel-powered engines, the GS 181 will spend less time in the shop than its gas competitors. 


The Greenworks Commercial 18” GS 181 Chainsaw will be available starting January 2020 through the Carswell, Carswell OEI, Conniff, Edney, PACE, Celtic, GC Duke, EFS, LL Johnson, and Steven Willand independent dealer networks.
