I've seen similar questions, but  no definitive answer. Will there be a package with the power head and all attachments without the battery?

I already have 2 rapid chargers, 2 - 7.5ah batteries, and 2 - 5.0ah batteries. I really don't need more batteries. The prices to buy the Power Head, String Trimmer, Edger, Pole Saw and Pole Saw Extension separately is $495.97 (assuming you can find any of them in stock.)  Please share your road map for offerings and timing.

The below is all I found on Home Depot as far as packages. Are there more packages coming (without batteries)?

Power Head, Battery Charger, String Trimmer, Edger, Pole Saw, Extension Pole, Model#,  Price
Yes 5.0ah Yes Yes Yes No No MHC1502 $399.00

My crystal ball says there isn't a business case for offering a package of all the attachments without a battery/charger.  Say Ego did release one, then next year they drop a few more tools, do they then go back and revise the package, from super to super-duper?

No company can offer every single different package; so they will likely offer the attachments separately, which is exactly what you see.  If you look at what they have done in Europe, it would be reasonable to conclude that they will over the mega kit next year with which ever tools are available, and it will likely include a battery/charger.

Thanks for the tip about the different regional availability of tools. I see a number more on the UK site. Since it looks like you follow this stuff pretty close, based on your point total, what has been your observation on timing from a product available in UK to being available in US?

I'd like to see the same thing and suggest that it isn't so difficult -- EGO could take the current package(s) and offer them without battery and charger.  A consumer could then add a bare tool or two and it's still a lot easier than ordering everything a la carte.  Example would be the Power Head with trimmer and edger kit.  Then it isn't a matter of every combination.  Easier for consumers for sure, and hard to figure that EGO couldn't figure out pricing to make everyone happy.

EGO gave advance notice of the Power Head kits that are now offered.  They have given no indication of any other kits at this time.  So your options are to purchase ala carte, purchase an available kit, or wait a while (perhaps in vain).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Want to purchase EGOModel # MHC15020(0) 15 in. String Trimmer and Edger Combo Kit....

Will the EGOModel # MHC15020(0)
15 in. String Trimmer and Edger Combo Kit be available without the battery and Charger? I already have those. Isn't that what your system is all about?

A pity these posts are from the USA as I have a 15" strimmer still boxed and unused, happy to sell but I live in the UK!

You should make some money and sell us stuff on ebay, like the hedge trimmer attachment, 20" high lift blade. Ect

Wonder why every kit has a trimmer when most ego owners already have one we need a kit of the things we don't have

@Brian...great post.  No one uses the work 'roadmap' unless they're a consultant.  As you know, most companies don't have one, that's why they hire folks like us....:).  I'm guessing that's the case here with Ego.  I'm getting frustrated too.
