Does Ego have "events", say at Home Depot locations around the country to promote and demonstrate their products to customers? I would love to learn more about Ego products a just such a hands-on event.

We were recently at the Home Depot near our house and they were setting up an EGO demonstration of the new Powerload trimmer. I don't know if this was something that was being done across all Home Depots but it was in conjunction with the current sale on some of the EGO tools including the Powerload trimmer. Also, I don't know if there was any sort of an announcement about it in a Home Depot ad, but we just happened to luck out since we were at the store at the time.

In Canada I have yet to see anything set up to demonstrate Ego power tools. Sad.

Ryobi and Milwaukee had this set up at a local HD last weekend, I’d love to see an Ego booth like this along with some promotions!!!

Excellent question, Bill! Yes, The Home Depot and independent EGO dealers both offer hands-on demo events. You'll need to check directly with the vendors in your area for a schedule.

I’d like to see Ego step up their game. At our local Hd, Ryobi has three times the display space as Ego. Most of their products are in stock. They even have an on-site rep on the weekends. Ryobi seems to be all in with their Ryobi days event. Lots of hands on etc. Dare I say, I even picked up some of their specialty tools recently. When I was during my research, I signed up for their newsletter. Their emails with the pricing and tools got me. Very attractive pricing and tool availability. I picked up some of the tools that Ego doesn’t offer. Very impressed so far. Come on Ego. Step it up. Let everyone know your a major player with excellent products. Steve
