I know I am going to sound like a broken record, but when I first heard about battery powered outdoor equipment, I thought to myself someone is putting on a good joke. How could battery power get the job done? At least with today’s battery technology. Well as most of you know, I was wrong, very wrong. I ended up with the whole line of the Ego products and haven’t looked back. They are powerful, reliable, start up right away and are easy to use. Plus they produce a great final result.
Ego now brought out a new trimmer this year. It is more powerful with it’s brushless motor and better because it has a 15″ cutting swath. The line is also more beefier with a .095″ twist line. If you want to check out more of the stats and info, you can check out the video below or visit Ego. Once our grass starts growing here in Illinois, I will revisit this trimmer as I am excited to give it a try and let you know more about it.
I was like you Eric, I did not think that a battery unit could get the job done. I will be giving up gas and going with a unit like the Ego on my next trimmer. I have not seen a self propelled battery mower yet so the Honda mower is safe, I am too lazy to push a mower.
Home depot has the 12″ version of this which is not a brushless unit and it’s selling for 179 on sale. Reviews said it was a little under powered. Maybe this one is a vast improvement over that one. Lets hope anyway, I want to go with the battery type next time.
