Need a tiller. Very much would like an ego version instead of having to mix current set of ego products with something else.

So wish I could replace this broken air pump with an Ego
Alas that option is not available

Does EGO plan to release any branded merchandise? I would gladly purchase an EGO hat, tee shirt, polo short, water bottle, or other merchandise containing a SMALL EGO logo.

@szwoopp Unfortunately, the EGO trimmer shoulder straps make terrible pants suspenders, and I cannot type wearing those leather gloves. I am looking for a way to show off my cutting edge lawn care equipment in the office. :)

Unfortunately, I have only seen those types of items as giveaways and promos.  Just have to hang around here enough until they have another I guess.

My Ego undies are about as subtle as you can get, at work anyway, but they were a limited time offer... :-(

@Qualls, at least the padded part of the shoulder strap can make a nice can/bottle coozie.

I would buy an ego 56V powered backpack sprayer
A stand-alone edger to complement my trimmer and mower.
While I am mowing I wish I could attach a striping kit
When renovating my lawn I would love to use a battery powered tiller or a small lawn dethatcher/ scarifier/aerator.

some good ideas Daniel.

Ego does make a stand alone edger already.

I'd like to see a smaller lawn mower too. Some of us don't have huge lawns or have very hilly grounds. A small, push mower sized mower that takes one battery would be great. I currently use the 15" trimmer.


The training wheels idea for the trimmer would be cool. That might work out good.

Low and behold, B&D have a mini mower option for the trimmer! Seems easy enough for Ego to build one like this.

I too would actually like something like this.  I used to think the idea was silly but I found the ideal application for it. I live on a bluff above a small lake with my main yard on the bluff top.  The 21" SP mower handles that just fine.  I have been using my string trimmer to cut the narrow bands of steeply sloped grass on the sides of my stairs down the bluff but the slope means the grass always ends up scalped in some spots and long in others.  This device looks like it would handle the slope a lot better.  I also have been trimming ~500 sq ft of grass along the shoreline while still leaving a buffer of natural shoreline.  Again this looks ideal for that rather than lugging my mower down the stairs. +1 from me!

The tiny mower adapted with the 15" string trimmer to a small 4 wheel base might work, especially if two or better yet, all four wheels were casters.  Thanks to an overzealous landscape architect, I have a lot of little tiny grass spaces among flower beds, one of which is not even contiguous with other parts of the yard.  In addition, one side of the house is only 7 feet anyway, and mowing between A/C units, standby generator, extra bricks, compost bin, and so on make the 21" mower fairly cumbersome to use.  Sign me up!

Yes, I got so tired of having to constantly exchange the four rechargeable AA batteries for fresh ones. It seemed silly when I’d be stuck without a spreader on a job given the fact I have eight 2.5 & two 5.0 AH Ego batteries available but no charged AA’s.
I learned about the benefits of the programmable drop-down voltage regulator. It hosts the basic input(56volts from the battery) and output (4 AA’s are 6 volts but I set output to 8 volts so it’s faster).
I had a charger that quit working several years ago to act as the contact point and harbor the regulator. Attaching the base of the spreader to the bottom of the charger will be the next challenge. Eight zip-ties are currently keeping them together.

Zip ties work fine. My ego powered rc mower has zip ties all over it.

Correct. Mowing is overly saturated in our area so I seek out niche services instead.

While it is interesting, I don’t understand motorizing a hand spreader? I mean they have a tiny hand crank that has no resistance. To me that’s taking a light product and turning it into a heavy beast. I could use my hand spreader all day without any fatigue. I’m missing something here.

Probably consistent delivery over an area. Hand crank gives bursts of material

Putting a better battery on something that’s already battery powered makes sense to me.

The hand crank version of these spreaders is garbage, I went through two or three of them. The battery ”Whizz” version works great, but I can see it chewing through batteries when used on larger properties.

The Ego battery is a little overkill, perhaps, but would run for a whole season! I might try adapting a 12v or 18v tool battery instead should I ever be in that situation.

Two additions to the power unit.........a blower attachment......like the Stihl kombi...and a shorter fixed hedge trimmer attachment. Both very handy in day to day use.

Based on your link, it appears to be "corded" instead of "cordless."  Do they make two different models?

Probably this one. I have a couple of Sun Joe products and I think they are pretty good. I believe EGO could make better ones though.

Now that is more like it, no way a cordless could be priced under $80. Hopefully in the near future, we can get EGO batteries for less than $100 ... wouldn't that be nice?

Yard Vac, please.  I've electrified my mower, snow blower, weed eater, chain saw, leaf blower.  Even my car and shortly battery backup for the whole house.  Now the only gas powered thing I still have is my old Sears Yard Vac.  Great for picking up leaves and mulching.  But the vibration, noise and fumes are awful.  So, a battery powered yard vac, please.

Would sure love to see a blower attachment for blowing leaves from rain gutters. I’ve seen them for Weed Eater, Worx, Stihl and Echo blowers. Seems simple for Ego, and I’m even contemplating trying to get one from Worx or Weed Eater (Poulan?) and trying to adapt it. Anyone else have any success making one work?

The worx is universal design and I believe has been used successfully with the ego blowers

OK, this may sound a little cheeky, but I'd sure like to see some value-priced batteries.  $220 for a 5 AH or $360 for a 7.5 AH?  Ouch.  Really, guys.  $220 for a 5 AH battery, and $99 for a rapid charger, when the 21" mower with a 5 AH battery and rapid charger is $399.  Does that mean the mower is worth only $80?  I can use another battery, and it would be handy to have a second rapid charger, so I'm thinking of getting another mower (and store it in the attic until my existing mower breaks) just to get the battery and charger.  This seems kindof wasteful for a company that is green oriented, doesn't it?

It is the game played with all battery powered stuff. I do wonder why there is such a huge bundle discount. Except for Makita. Those turds charge you for everything.
