Greenworks GC40L410 Garden Cart Features and Specifications
Greenworks GC40L410 can be purchased as 'bare-tool' (garden cart without G-MAX 40V 4.0 Ah battery and 29482 battery charger) or as cordless garden cart kit consisting of garden cart/wheelbarrow, Greenworks 29472 G-MAX 40V 4.0 Ah lithium ion battery and high-performance 29482 battery charger.
Having one or more Greenworks 29472 G-MAX 40V 4.0 Ah lithium ion batteries and required battery chargers, ensures that the user can operate several Greenworks tools designed to be powered by such batteries. Initial price may be little bit higher, but in the long run these batteries allow the user to buy 'bare-tools' at very acceptable prices.
Greenworks GC40L410 40V Garden Cart is powered by single 10-cells Greenworks 40 volts 4.0 Ah lithium ion G-MAX battery which is able to store ~144 Wh of energy - when the battery is fully charged, its voltage is 40 volts, but during use its voltage is ~36 volts.
On average, Greenworks GC40L410 may operate up to 40 minutes on the flat, hard surface. When the unit is heavily loaded and used for moving up and down the slopes, the operating time is shorter.
However, when lightly loaded and used on flat surfaces, operating time may be 60 or more minutes - it all depends on the load and slope.
Unit comes with quick Greenworks 29482 battery charger that is able to charge the battery in approximately 2 hours - having three batteries would allow the user to operate Greenworks GC40L410 almost constantly.
Note: Greenworks GC40L410 is easy to use and maintain electric motorized garden cart/wheelbarrow, but when it arrives, be sure to read the manual thoroughly in order to get accustomed to your new garden tool. Also, when charging and discharging batteries - before and after charging the batteries, let them cool down a little. These batteries have smart controllers that monitor the batteries' condition, but nonetheless, letting them cool down may prolong their number of charging/discharging cycles.
Greenworks GC40L410 weighs 70.6 pounds (with 40V 4.0 Ah battery, ~32 kg) and is 52.6" (133.6 cm) long, 24.8" (63 cm) wide, and 42.1" (107 cm) high - it features well balanced design that doesn't cut corners in terms of reliability and usability.
Cargo tub is made of durable and rust resistant plastic, featuring 3.75 cubic feet (106 liters) capacity and 220 pounds (100 kg) weight capacity. However, it is not recommended to load the unit fully when going up and down the slopes - not only that it may overload the motor/battery pack and shorten operating time, but such loaded motorized wheelbarrow/garden cart may be harder to control, leading to accidents, damage, injuries or worse ...
Greenworks GC40L410 controls are placed on the right handle and include two forward and one reverse speed. Actual speed depends on the load, tire pressure, slope, but on flat, even terrain, forward speeds are ~2.2 mph/3.5 km/h and 1.55 mph/2.5 km/h and the reverse speed is ~1.24 mph/2 km/h.
Additional controls include off-load assist handle and foot break.
Off-load assist handle help the user in off-loading the cargo from the cargo tub, while the easy-to-deploy foot break ensures safe parking on even terrain - foot break does good job even on the slopes, but due to possible high center of gravity of the load, there are safety concerns when the unit is parked on the slope.
Greenworks GC40L410 is of 3-wheels design, featuring one 8" (20.3 cm) caster wheel and two main 10" (25.4 cm) wheels.
Main wheels should be inflated up to 30 PSI - it is recommended to periodically check the pressure and keep it between 28 and 30 PSI.
Note: when the tire pressure is low, battery is discharged faster due to the increased tires resistance.
Long Story Short: Greenworks GC40L410 40V Garden Cart is very popular electric, motorized wheelbarrow/garden cart, helping its users move heavy load across yards, gardens, beaches, etc.
Due to the cordless design, Greenworks GC40L410 doesn't have to pull extension cord behind, ensuring great autonomy. On the other hand, operating time is limited by the energy stored in the onboard battery which may be fully charged in 2 hours.
When Greenworks GC40L410 arrives, it must be assembled which can be done rather quickly - just be sure to read the manual.
If you have need for motorized wheelbarrow, consider this unit, it may be rather helpful in any yard or garden.
