Some of the reviews talk about how big the charger is which takes up valuable space in a garage, not to mention the savings of not having to pay for two chargers and batteries. I am in the market right now for an alternative to a gas operated trimmer but will  need a blower also. Paying $400 does not seem to make much sense when one power source is all I would need to run both units.

Hi Fernando,
The devices will be sold as bare tools (no batteries or chargers included) on homedepot.com in the very near future. Be sure to check back as those should be posted very soon.

Already have the Trimmer but I need a hedger and a blower as well.  I'm wondering when the ETA date will be that I can purchase these items without the corresponding charger / battery kit.

Hi John,
The bare tools (and bare batteries and chargers) will be available online through homedepot.com within the month of April.  We are working on getting them up as soon as possible.  Thanks for your patience and check the website often as they should be there any day now.

Where do you see it at $400?  I checked online and have it for $499

I think Fernando was combining the cost of each tool (trimmer and blower) at $199 (with the 2.0Ah battery and standard charger included).  The only tool that is $499 is the mower ( 4.0Ah battery and 30-minute quick charger included).  Hope that helps.

I just wanted to let you know that bare tools and batteries are all now available on HomeDepot.com.  Here is the link for anyone interested in the EGO Power+ line:  http://www.homedepot.com/s/ego?NCNI-5
