Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have a few new kit options now available for our hedge trimmer, 20" mower, 14" chain saw and 480CFM blower.

*Hedge trimmer now with a 2.5Ah battery and standard charger. (http://thd.co/2eYjKzu)
*20" mower now with a 5.0Ah battery and rapid charger. (http://thd.co/2fXgfMc)
*14" chain saw now with a 2.5Ah battery and standard charger. (http://thd.co/2eDKtGl)
*480CFM blower now with a 2.5Ah battery and standard charger.  (http://thd.co/2fDNFyr)

I know many of you are very anxious to see more accessories become available as well.  Snow blower replacement parts will be available near the end of November. The much anticipated blower nozzle will be available in the very early part of next year (2017).  Once these parts and accessories become available, I will try to notify everyone here as well.

I noticed a couple of those before.  Nice to see a few more buying options, though if I had to guess this is writing on the wall that the 2Ah/4Ah kits are on their way out. :-)

The 20" mower with 5Ah battery should offer some pretty decent cut times!

Blue, I think you are correct in your "assumption" that 2.0 & 4.0 Ah batteries are retiring sooner than later - but will let Jennifer comment on that.

Since I purchased my mower over 2 years ago, I had to get the Hedge Trimmer, Chain Saw, and String Trimmer, and park my gas powered equipment. Since the great battery powered equipment complements my solar company so well, I haven't had to store gasoline for anything in a long time.

Are there any plans for a Blower/Vac. combo? Pole pruner? Because of the robust batteries, a lantern/light would be great! Also, because of remote jobs sometimes, the six batteries I have would charge a lot of cordless tools if there was a charging station of some kind that other chargers could operate off of a 7.5 battery.

I love being able to show up at a community project or job and be able to work all day with my QUIET battery operated tools and it costs me less than 30 cents to fully charge all of them and no gasoline, oil, or exhaust to deal with. I look forward to seeing what's next.

Ego has a pole chain saw for the Power Head system, if that’s what you’re looking for.

A 120V Power station would be awesome, and is a frequent request here. :-)

Hey Jennifer, speaking of new kit options, any idea if we'll see a price drop on the 20" 7.5Ah mower kit?  It's still priced $50 higher than the 21" 7.5Ah SP mower kit, which never made any sense to me...

I don't have any pricing updates at this time. Sorry. :(

I don't know if EGO really gets into the price policy of HomeDepot.  There are quite a few items that price wise don't make any sense.  Sometimes i wonder if they price items to meet deal quotas.  Like, HomeDepot could get a better price break if they sell more Self Powered mowers so they price the other items in the line higher to get customers to purchase a particular model.

I believe it's been said that Ego is pretty much powerless to influence Home Depot pricing... they pretty much do what they want, and make little sense in doing so. :-)

This blade should be available next year. We'll keep everyone posted here when it's actually available.
