Ego Trimmer Mod!  I really liked my black and decker trimmer with the wheel for doing edging so I thought maybe with a few parts I can put a wheel on the Ego Trimmer to help with edging. Need to test it out for its viability and practicality.

I borrowed my 5 year old's toy 3D Printer and printed the rear and front bracket.  LOL

Can you share the STL file and the Wheel info that you have added? Really looks nice.  EGO may have opted for a GREEN wheel color. LOL

I did it on ToyBox. There is no STL file I see.. only pieces I printed were support pieces.  The wheel is from Black and Decker..

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled wheels for string trimmer.

A pair of wheels that could attach to the shaft of the ST1501-S string trimmer so it can be more easily used sideways as an edger. Perhaps some sort of clamping mechanism on the wheel assembly around the shaft of the trimmer that could be easy to install or remove the wheels as needed.

I was so ecstatic when I saw this mod. I brought this topic a year or two ago and have been waiting for EGO to respond with a product to replace my WORX trimmer. Finally ordered my EGO 15" Powerload String Trimmer after waiting and no replacement for the WORX trimmer. Now for some mods.
Thanks for sharing.
