EGO needs to make a switch for their trimmer that would allow the head to spin counter clockwise.

I use EGO products professionally but I will not buy an EGO trimmer until they make one that spins in the direction that all pro-trimmers spin. Perhaps EGO could create a switch so that the user could choose the preferred direction. All my gas powered trimmers spin counter clockwise and all my employees whether they are left or right handed are comfortable trimming this way. When I first began my business I used consumer level trimmers and they turned clockwise like the EGO, but after buying commercial quality trimmers I learned to trim a different way and I don't want to go back. I love the 21" mower and blowers you make. Please make a counter clockwise turning trimmer. Thanks in advance!

Keith, you’re in luck! Ego’s most heavy-duty trimmers, the Powerhead with string trimmer attachment and rear motor trimmer, both spin counter-clockwise just like other pro models do. They’re also very powerful, in line with what many commercial users need. ;-)
