Ego for the easy win! Too bad you didn’t summarize the power differences.

Great video! You did, however, forget to point out that the Ego battery doesn’t have a power meter, just a charge status light.

Thanks blue - making this video almost killed me.  You are right I didn't summarize - I have found that I get less abuse if I run a test and let viewers decipher what they saw.  BTW...I think you and I agree on the results.  But don't tell anyone I said that :)

Ego won without even using it's big gun... the power head.
The power head would of cut through a 2x4 lol.

That would be nice indeed.  The EGO 2017 power head string trimmer VS EGO's 2018 carbon fiber string trimmer.  I already know the winner (power wise).  But theres more than just power (weight balance, this what made me sell my power head and go back to there traditionnal string trimmer).  An indepth comparison of the two would be nice.  I never seen a video comparing those 2 models...

Great review, just placed my order yesterday for the  EGO powerhead (string trimmer and edger attachments) and EGO blower and your reviews definitely helped me reach that decision.  Thanks for putting these detailed reviews together.  Always have been a 4 cycle gags trimmer fan, but recently purchased my brother in law an Ego trimmer for a present and he was very pelased with is - got me looking when my 4 cycle Ryobi started acting up again

Huge upgrade from a Ryobi.  Let me know how you like the EGO when you get it.
