Nice looking tools.  Should help Ego with the commercial users and those with large properties.  But why can't we get the bicycle handle or brush cutter in the US.

I find it interesting that EGO decided to stay at 56V with it's professional line. That's good news (I think) for some backward compatibility with the residential line. There must be some other advantages to sticking with the same voltage. With a new battery form factor they could have easily gone to a 80V line.

Darn. No new mowers or batteries?

Hopefully with the Commercial Series we’ll now see a bigger badder more powerful snowblower.

I was hoping they were going to introduce a new snowblower this year (since I needed one). Hopefully, I don't regret going with the current model down the road.

I have the current model. I’m considering buying a Hybrid single stage (set up like a 2 stage but single impeller) gas model.

So I take it you are using hybrid to refer to the operation rather than the power supply

Correct. Look up Toro Snowmaster 724/824. I need something that has a little more then my EGO. I don’t want gas but no idea if EGO is even looking into a bigger snow blower. I tried holding out.

Hopefully if something EGO is released I could resell the toro for a decent amount.

My "hybrid approach" this winter is to buy the current EGO Snowblower and lineup a snow removal service for the "big ones". I like the concept of the Toro Snowmaster but while it has the advantage over the EGO by being self-propelled, I'm concerned it may still be limited given that it's not a full two-stage snow blower. Plus, I'm really tired of gas...so I'm willing to give EGO a chance.

I'm kind of curious if they showed off any of the mowers to meet commercial needs at GIE despite not being on their commercial website? You would think that the LM2142SP would have at lest been shown.
