Cordless Outdoor Power Equipment Guide

Cordless outdoor power equipment is poised to be the next big trend in the power equipment industry. With advances in lithium-ion battery technology, these tools not only require very little maintenance but also now provide power output to rival their gas-powered counterparts. For example, Greenworks' 40V 16" cordless chainsaw produces 30% more power than most gas chainsaws and does it with 70% less vibration.

With a cordless tool, you don't have to worry about gassing up, priming, pull-starting, and maintaining various parts like a traditional blower, trimmer, or mower. They're also typically much lighter and quieter while in use. 

Perfect for suburban homes or the jobsite, these tools are often compatible with batteries you may already have. They require no gas and are a cost-effective way to take care of your outdoor projects.

Many power tool brands are pushing new cordless power equipment to the market, including DeWalt, Black & Decker, Greenworks, Toro, Remington, and WORX. Here's a quick overview of the products and technology that each brand offers - found right here at or your local Do it Best store.
