Greenworks Tools have made quite the name for themselves in a short amount of time. Their brand competes against the likes of Black+Decker along with other mid-tier tool manufactures. The company’s cordless lineup, including the 20672 Pole Saw kit, also provides quite a bit of bang for your buck.
Greenworks is a brand from the Far East known for their small arsenal of cordless and corded products. While they offer several sizes of pole saw, we like the 20672, which is a combo kit featuring an 8.5’ pole saw and a 40-volt battery. While there’s plenty of plastic on the saw, the pole is aluminum which makes it fairly light at 15.3 pounds.
The design makes this saw easy to use as it has an automatic oiler, an “easy” chain tensioning system, along with an electric starter. That means maintenance is kept to a minimum aside from sharpening or swapping out a pole saw blades or cleanup. The tensioning isn’t quite as easy as they lead you to believe however as you’ll still need a tool to tune it up.
On that note…
Users reported that the oiler works well, but there are spotty reports of leaking. That’s par for the course with any chainsaw regardless of its size although we don’t feel like it’s an issue with this particular model. We also appreciate the translucent oil tank which allows you to keep an eye on the levels.
This saw comes with an 8-inch bar and chain attached to a 3-piece aluminum shaft. The shaft extends up to 8 feet, and it has a variable speed trigger. As for the battery, it’s 40 volts and rated at 2Ah which is said to provide you with around 60 cuts per charge. That should be more than sufficient for most folks, but there are batteries that give you more runtime like this 5.0Ah juice box which also has a built-in USB port.
Normally, we’d tell you to proceed with caution when dealing with lesser-known brands in the cordless tool world. We’re pleased to say Greenworks has a solid line of cordless outdoor tools, and their extendable pole saws hold up well.
Consumers seem to feel the same way as most of the negative reviews and comments are minor like the fact it doesn’t ship with oil and the tensioning system which can be a pain. The Greenworks 20672 Cordless Pole Saw Kit comes with a 40V battery, charger, user manual, scabbard, and chain. The tool itself has a 4-year warranty while the battery is covered for two.
