Jennifer, when will the bare tools be available in Canada? I have the mower and blower already, both purchased as kits with batteries and chargers, so I don't need anything other than the bare tools. I plan to purchase the string trimmer and hedge trimmer in the spring (2015), will the bare tools be available by then?

Blue Angel, sorry for the delay in our reply.  Bare tools should be available in Canada by 2015.  We don't anticipate an issue with that timeframe.

Thanks Jennifer, now get the team working on that snow blower so I can add that to my arsenal next fall (as a bare tool also)!

In early March I contacted HD Canada re the availability of the EGO bare tool blower. This was their response: "The LB4800 you are looking for is not available at Home Depot Canada as of yet and we are unable to order for our Canadian customers at this moment. At The Home Depot, we are consistently adding new products and vendors to our repertoire. Your interest in this product has been documented and sent to our Marketing department for consideration. We apologize for any inconvenience."

... face palm!

Terry, that's really unfortunate.  We're checking into the official availability of all bare tools that Home Depot Canada has agreed to carry.  We'll update you once we know what their plans are.

Jennifer I picked a Lawn Mower at Home Depot Canada yesterday. Can you tell me when will the Lawn Mower Blades be available in Home Depot Canada. If I cannot get one I will forced to take back my Lawn Mower within the 30 Day Return date.

Hi David, did you check your local store for replacement blades?  Most of the Home Depot Canada stores keep those in stock in the store.  If not, we can help you through our customer service team.  We keep all parts in stock and are happy to send to Canada.  We're looking into posting these online on homedepot.ca.  We're not sure why those aren't up yet.

Hi Jennifer, yes I checked my local store and there are not any. I would appreciate anything you could do to accelerate this.
PS
Do you know when your 15" Trimmer will be available in Canada?

UPDATE:
Jennifer, I spent that last hour with Home Depot Canada and the bottom line is that they do not carry the blade, and do not have any idea if they will be carrying the blade.
I have contacted by phone your Customer Support (Susan) and they advised me that they will sell me a blade at $18.95 plus $8.95 shipping.

I still take issue with the Canadian Home Depot not carrying or selling the blade for a Lawn Mower they sell, but that is an entirely different discussion.

Thank You

Blue Angel, is it on the Web Site as I cannot get it to come up. I see the seperate Batteries and Charges but do not see the Blade listed?
Can you send me the link?

Curiously, I can't find it on their website either.  Several stores in my area have them sitting on the shelf, however.  Have a look the next time you're in.

Hi Jennifer any update on bare tools in Canada?  I would go out and buy the whole set once this happens, but might need to buy a different mower soon if not.  I hope there is some progress here.  

Thanks,
Joe

Joe, the bare tools are definitely coming and we were just updated that it should happen this summer.  Once available, we'll update this post.  We appreciate your enthusiasm for the EGO line!

Jennifer does that also mean that the 15" Trimmer is coming this summer?
