New Kobalt 80 Volt Max Outdoor Line

New line of Kobalt cordless outdoor power equipment spotted on the Lowe’s website. The new line includes a push lawn mower, blower, and 18″ chainsaw. All are powered by 80 volt lithium ion batteries and brushless motors. Kobalt currently has a 40 volt max line of cordless battery powered outdoor equipment and now with 80 volts we can expect more power.

Lets take a look at the break down of features for each product straight from the manufacturer.

    I have the Greenworks version of the blower If you look the tools are identical except for the color. I swapped from EGO to Greenworks because of the snow blower they offered. I have no idea if and when EGO will offer one. I will say numbers are not that much better. I wonder if they are using the extra voltage for runtime and not using full power. That’s just my guess you would think the 80v tool would be so much better than then EGO

    I’ve invested about 1000 in this 80 volt line up and couldn’t be happier. Have the mower, trimmer, chainsaw, 4 batts and 3 chargers. Cut for 45 min on one battery with chainsaw trimming some heavy bushes/small trees 1/2 inch to 3 inch diameter. Trimmer is outstanding and the line it comes with is top notch -purchased a brush cutter attachment for it and performed well also with sufficient run time between battery swaps. The mower does well also within reason but if the grass is wet or too high be prepared to swap batteries every 20 min or so depending on conditions. If cutting normal height grass it goes for quite some time. The key is to get several batteries then you always have them at the ready for all day work. The age of the high powered cordless outdoor equipment has finally arrived – kobalts 80 volt line is worth the money – no more gummed up carburetors and bad gas – push a button and go and better for the environment.
