greenworks-amazon-goldbox-deals (1)

Today only, as a part of its Gold Box Deals of the Day, Amazon is discounting a number of GreenWorks G-MAX 40V Electric Outdoor Tools. Free shipping is available on each of items in today’s sale.

Now is the time to make the switch to electric-powered outdoor equipment. Not only is it safer for the environment, in comparison to gas, you’ll also save on energy costs. The lack of an internal combustion motor also cuts down on vibrations for a more comfortable experience.

Our top pick is the GreenWorks 21362 G-MAX 40V 14-inch Cordless String Trimmer for $170.49 shipped. It carries a list price of $249 but typically sells for around $220 or more at retailers like Walmart. This cordless string trimmer ships with a 40V battery and charger plus an extendable attachment pole for adding other accessories. You can expect up to 55 minutes of run time on a single charge. The included battery is compatible with the rest of GreenWorks’ G-MAX lineup. Rated 4.5/5 stars by 161 Amazon customers.
