OK, so the 15" brushless Ego trimmer is now available in Australia, and the guys down under at Oz Tool Talk did a nice review.  Spoiler alert: They LOVE it (no surprise there):

HOWEVER, there are a few tidbits that have shown up on the Aussie version of the trimmer that I have questions about:

1. Shoulder Strap.  They have it, when can WE get it here in North America?

Ego Australia product page lists a strap for the blower:

Can we get that too? :-)

2. Quick release "D" handle.  They have it, can WE get it too?  Are we getting it?

And then they spilled the beans on the new 6.0Ah battery pack, the Ego BA3360:

3. Is the 6.0Ah battery an Australia-only item, or will that be offered here as an option as well?

Sorry to drop all these tough questions on you guys right before the holidays, but hey, if i didn't do it someone else would have.  And let's face it, this board has been FAR too quiet lately so you were probably looking for something to do anyway, right? :-)

Hi Blue, some answers to your questions.

1. Shoulder Strap.  They have it, when can WE get it here in North America?

Not yet.  It's something we are working on having available in 2016 in North America.  We cannot confirm a date/price/availability at this time.

2. Quick release "D" handle.  They have it, can WE get it too?  Are we getting it?

Not yet. No word on the possibility of having this option in North America at this time.  We'll pass along your request to our sales team.

3. Is the 6.0Ah battery an Australia-only item, or will that be offered here as an option as well?

This is an Australia/Europe-only item at this time.  No plans to bring to North America for now.
