Lost somewhere? Well my parents ordered me the 15" Trimmer on May 27 from Home Depot in Scottsbluff, NE. So far it hasn't showed up. Called CS and they have no idea if it departed a warehouse, if its on a truck or when it will arrive. This will be my first EGO to test on a farmstead with an assortment of vegetation to do battle with. I used my neighbors walk behind gas weed trimmer today. It took about 15 pulls to get it started, then the fumes choked me even with my oxygen turned to 5L. Pushing it around is difficult hitting my oxygen bottle bag then lower back and shoulders are very sore. Maybe EGO would consider making one of these? I don't have the funds for the SP mower, still trying to sell my gassers.

My right arm hurts the most do to holding the trimmer. Maybe EGO can make a set of wheels on a platform that the trimmer can attach to?

Jacob, strap hooks to trimmer shaft then to what on human? Other then oxygen for one lung down I have 4 pins in my right shoulder, left shoulder had surgery too. They want to do right shoulder, left hand palm, L4 & L5 and bottom of both feet that have rather large egg shaped knot on each. I was hit by 200 amp main neutral feed, had been wired against code, my body changed a bit sense then. So I can't use shoulder straps, my oxygen tank bag is around my waist which hurts my lower back. So, I'm difficult to contend with to say the least.

Now I need to cut all the dead tree out of coop area. Still have a lot of grass to cut on the other side (east) of coop. Can you see the twin power poles directly over the chain link gate? That's the NE corner of my yard.

I only fed & watered the animals today, 100°+ is too hot for me and my meds to be weed trimming. So placed the other battery in charger so it'll be ready for tomorrow if I can handle it.

Jacob, will the suit have A/C? Then allow me to lift up heavy things like I use too? Oh, something in the suit like a sensor so when I eat them chick peas?

Used 3 batteries today, they don't seem to last as long now. Drug branches out from coop area, went to cut the dead tree and chainsaw starting wore my shoulder out and left me out of breath. So I'll try that again tomorrow.

Finished coop and surrounding area then started around dog trailer then took break to cut tree then to front yard as I haven't finished it yet. There is more front yard to do today but thought I'd update.

The first photo shows the reach it has to trim behind trees between fence using one arm so that I could reach in further.

BA, yes I have. It takes a long time to do large areas with trimmer, kinda back breaking.
