I bought a mower with a 4 amp battery about 3 years ago. Works great. I'm contemplating buying the string trimmer. Can I use the same battery ? It seems like it would not fit or it might be too heavy.

All ego batteries work in all ego tools.

weight can be an issue with hand held tools (more with the 7.5 or 5, but certainly a matter of personal preference)

Hi David! Your 4Ah battery will absolutely work with your new string trimmer. All of our batteries are interchangeable among EGO tools. It will definitely fit, but it is a slightly heavier battery.

I use the 5 Ah battery on my trimmer all the time and have had no problem, and the balance is fine. You can always use a shoulder strap if you find you need to.
