Charlotte North Carolina -- Greenworks Commercial unveiled recently the first production models of its Lithium Z Zero-Turn Mowers. The Greenworks Commercial Lithium Z family features the first and only lithium-ion battery powered commercial grade mowers to be independently UL-certified for safety.

The Lithium Z family will feature both a 48-inch stand-on mower and a 60-inch ride-on mower, offering users zero-turn radius maneuverability, zero gas and zero emissions. Both models are powered by an 82-volt 13.8kW lithium-ion battery and feature three 1.5KW Brushless Blade Motors and two 1.7KW Brushless Drive Motors, delivering cutting speed and power and offering a true gas replacement.

"These products have been highly anticipated by the industry since we first showcased early prototypes at the 2016 GIE+Expo," said Tony Marchese, director of independent retail, Greenworks North America.

"At GIE 2017, attendees saw and experienced models that were late stage prototypes, and every moment since then our efforts have been spent on tweaking and perfecting these machines. We have field tested them with some of the biggest pro landscaping companies in the country this spring and they have received rave reviews as true gas alternatives. Since May our dealers have just been overwhelmed with pre-orders, so we are excited to make them widely available beginning today, as the industry's first ever UL-certified, professional-grade, lithium-ion zero-turn mowers."
