Going to do a quick break down of some questions/concerns i have using ego tools for the first year, as a small scale commercial user.

Questions:

1. Will the ego power station solar panel adapter be able to trickle charge ego batteries while in use? if so why can't the wall outlet charge while in use.

2. Your ego nexus power station app is painful in light of recent presidential GPS data leaks can you commit to not forcing us to have locations services enabled to use the horrifically broken  app?

3. When can I get my self that new proper mulching blade with better lift?

Suggestions:

1. Can you please make a bristle brush leaf leaf mulch combo capable of working in wet conditions so not an impeller style one. make lawn cleanups easy! every landscaper dreads them. I'll design you one if you like.

2. selling a 20" steel deck with an eco blade is a bad idea the 20" mower requires a high lift blade basically to actually do a good cut.

3. A slightly more powerful backpack blower would be nice.

4. 10AH battery.

5. having clear tops to your battery cases are nice, but baking your battery in the sun is not nice, I vinyl wrap my covers in white to keep the battery compartment cool.... Function over fashion, don't be a gimmick company.

6.A 4 battery two stage snow blower.

7. High psi deck washer would be nice 4 battery high psi.

8. a proper commercial trimmer that has the motor in the head like your full carbon shaft model fix defective trigger let off and increase durability and quality with full repair ability.

9. Unify mower cut height tolerances, I prefer the steel deck spacing, my duel battery mower should have those cut heights.

Issues/defects:

Light commercial use 5-7 lawns a week.

1. Mower auto walk function drags stutters and sometimes fails (defective)

2. many of the commercial/residential trimmers have defective trigger systems that auto lets off randomly, very annoying when doing curb work, and basically makes the commercial line power head viable for recall, mowers should be recalled as well IMO.

3.The whole ego nexus app is a defect and should be shot into the sun.

Some things to add...

1. Figure out a way to make the chargers not smell as bad when they heat up, my ego nexus generator charges the batteries smell free.

2. your ego select cut adding more blades wasn't the answer, should have made a more advance durable custom blade, no one wants to sharpen two blades after 8 hours of use let alone 1 blade. that being said I'm looking forward to a proper high lift mulching blade on both my mowers.

motor on the whip side pulse trimming is the future do not deny it! make a better built more pro grade trimmer with the motor on the whip side the full carbon shaft trimmer is still my favorite tool ever made even though it's defective.

Wow, 3 days no comments. I appreciate the effort you put in your posts and videos, but this board is not staffed by anybody actually from EGO. This is just peer-to-peer postings from other EGO consumers like yourself, seeking advice and helping each other. The only thing I can comment on is that I thought EGO had announced a 10AH battery, but hasn't actually started shipping it. Could be delayed or cancelled, I don't know.

I did get a kick out of your comment "The whole ego nexus app is a defect and should be shot into the sun". LOL. Somehow I don't think software is where their expertise lies.
