I have a Stihl FS 130R with a 0.155 trim line which shreds through any grass and even handles thin wooded brush. As powerful as it is, I wanted to look for a string trimmer that didn't need the gas, noise, stink, and setup of my Stihl for when I just wanted to maintain my more manicured areas of the property.  The EGO 15" trimmer has exceeded my expectations.

I trimmed and edged around the 10,000 sq/ft of lawn with absolutely no issues other than not being able to edge in a straight line, but hey, this is not supposed to be an edger.  For those wondering if there's enough power in this trimmer to edge that would be an overwhelming YES.  I had to tone down the revs on the trimmer to gain back some control when edging.

As for trimming, when I was done trimming the grass I went back to where my Stihl left it's warpath to see what the EGO could handle.  Other than the wooded material, the EGO sliced through the grasses and even blackberry vines like a champ.  Can't rave enough about this trimmer.  It truly can match it's weight with some of the gas trimmers out there!
