The 15" trimmer bare tool is advertised on the US Home Depot site. It has been out of stock since I've been watching it in late July. The price jumped from the "new low price" of $130 to $180 on August 5.

I'd really love to pick up the bare tool since I just purchased the mower and love it.

Any chance the price and availability will return?

Official Response
Hi Greg, sorry for the delay in our response.  Yes, the 15" string trimmer bare tool will be available on HomeDepot.com in the next few weeks.  Demand was a little higher than anticipated but we are restocking right now.  We thank you for your patience and understanding.  We anticipate 3-4 weeks until they are available again.

I am guessing the 2.0ah kits are going to get clearanced out at the beginning of the season.

I do wonder about the future of the 12" trimmer though... presumably there is some market for a lighter-duty trimmer, but will it be available in a kit with a 2.5ah battery, the original kit with the 2.0ah battery, as a bare tool only, or not at all?

I guess the same line of questioning applies to the chainsaw, blower, and 20" mower too. I am guessing most of the original versions are being discontinued and cleared out, but you could make a compelling argument for keeping most of them as entry-level models.

Not a bad idea, David! What better way to get people into the Ego brand!

Heh... that might be a logistical nightmare for Home Depot, though... :-)

Note to EGO. Need the spools fixed and a wheel added for edging lawns. Will wait until then
