Ego Snow Blower Review – 56V Power

Winter is right around the corner which means we have to start thinking about snow.  In the past, I was the guy who never wanted a snow blower.  For me, I loved shoveling.  I felt like I was getting a little exercise and just loved the peace and quiet outside when it was snowing.  A gas engine always took away the peace and quiet.  About two years ago, we tested the Greenworks and Snow Joe snow blowers.  While I would give up my exercise, I would still get the peace and quiet with the battery powered snow blowers.  While we...

Ego Backpack Blower Model LB6000

If you are taking a stroll down the OPE aisles at The Home Depot, you have probably seen the name Ego.  This is a brand that has hit the market hard over the last couple of years with battery powered OPE tools such as a lawnmower, hand held blower, string trimmer, chainsaw and more.  While Ego is a newer company to market, the main company, Chervon, has been around a long time.  They have plenty of experience and in fact we had a chance to visit them first hand.  While the visit was awesome, I took away two things....

Best Cordless Mower – Check out What Tools in Action Found

Welcome to Mower week.  Today we have a head to head.  Stay tuned because the rest of the week, we will cover each mower in greater detail.  Five years ago if you asked me if we would have ever had a head to head for cordless mowers, I probably would have laughed.  See back then I was all about gas, all about power.  The cordless mowers back then were awful.  They were cheap, they didn’t last and let’s face it, manufacturers just came out of the gate too soon because they were so interested in being first to the...

Ego Blower

You may or may not know, but Ego is pretty new to OPE.  Since they have come out, they have been turning heads.  Not only has the consumer been more intrigued by their quality products, but other OPE manufacturers have been trying to play catch up with Ego.  Well Ego did it again with the new Ego Blower.  They just introduced a new 56v blower, which is a step up from their LB4801.

EGO Mower – 21″ Self Propelled 56V Lawn Mower

It’s been a couple of years since EGO introduced it’s 56V line of Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE).  At the time, there was no way I would change from gas to battery.  I always thought it was going to be hard to create a battery lawn mower that would compete against gas.  I just didn’t think technology was at that point.  Well, EGO proved me wrong.  In the end I ended up giving my gas powered lawn mower, blower, hedger and chain saw to a friend.  Since then, I have been using the EGO OPE and haven’t had a second...
