Thanks for the review, nicely done!

I use my EGO equipment commercially, and I can see where this would help to reduce fatigue by reducing the weight of the tool.

For enhanced runtime a dual battery version (or a dual battery adapter) would also be very useful.

Thanks for the review, and your EGO youtube reviews, as they have been very useful.

I can't wait for the Ego Jet engine flying suits :)

way overpriced, but that's not a surprise .. should be $39.95 .. where is there $150 worth of plastic & padding?

That's too low to be taken seriously - a decent bump head costs that much, but I do think something closer to $79-99 would be a reasonable price for this unit.

Why not $1.99?  Maybe you should take a look at Ryobi.  But don't expect the same quality....

My thoughts exactly If you are going on price ruining is your brand.

Worth it?

I've used it for hours and hours with little negatives. In the long run it will help save my shoulders, elbows, hands and more. In the short turn it allows me to work with more precision and longer. Worth every penny and i will buy the $1000 battery pack when it lands in the states...probably several.

For the homeowner with an oversized lot or country property it allows long runtime, decreased weight on parts of the body that can't handle it, true gas replacement by being able to run the big power power head unit .......I could go on.

Really an outstanding tool brought to us by the current number one in green handheld power tools.

Yes indeed but it is made by another division of Chervon that does not operate in the US, so not sure if we will ever see it.

I wonder why these are not available in the US?

Made by another division of Chervon - Calmdura.  Calmdura does not operate in US.  Although I guess if they are being sold by Ego and branded as Ego, then Ego could distribute them to the US. 

Good question that applies to several Ego products
BAX battery back packs
20" HL blade
Brush cutters

We recently got the power head hedge trimmer, so hopefully more to come.

Hey EGO - why are you punishing us?
