It's official, EGO just announced they will have a 56V Chainsaw coming to a Home Depot near you. We would like to thank a TIA Crew Member for finding this news and bringing it to our attention. As you know we have really been impressed with the EGO 56V line so far. The line has been far better than we expected, so I don't think the chainsaw will be any different and my guess is that it will surprise us also.
I have to say I am glad EGO is expanding their 56V outdoor lawn and garden line. How nice is it to have a battery operated line up for your home that is powerful and does the job. No more gas, no more loud engines, no more hassle. Now again, we love this line, but since it is new there isn't a long-term track record. We have spoken with EGO and they are 100% committed. They are willing to answer all of our questions and have been open and honest with us from the start, which says a lot to us. Okay, so what about the EGO Chainsaw?
EGO is adding a 14″ chain saw to their power+ line up. This saw should be in stores early fall of 2014. The saw looks like it will have a 2.0 Ah battery, the same as the trimmer, blower and hedger. Suggested retail price as of today is $299, but as we all know, that could be higher or lower by product launch date.
