So its no secret that the trimmer combo kit is a no go for maybe another month or two.  So I saw that HD had the trimmer and battery without the edger attachment at $349.  Well I called and got them to ship it to me for 15% off (put it at like $296) so when the edger attachment FINALLY does become available I can scoop one up and get the combo price.  Very pleased with HD's help on this.  My lawn needs some work and glad I dont have to wait till August!!  Hope this works for anyone else trying to get some movement from EGO or HD.  The lady on the phone said the EGO combo pack is something she hears about many times a day.  She said it is really rare as there are so many products.  I told her about EGO and she was really excited and confused at why they are not pushing this product more.

Yeah, they don't seem to get how much people like EGO.  One of the top 10 rules of business is to sell people what they want to buy, so if they ask for it, you'd better have it or you're missing out.

...unless the decisions are made based on metric/bonus initiatives within Supply Chain or S&M... ...Then all that matters is hitting the goal and getting the $$$.  The fact that it may not be good for the company is immaterial at that point.

If you are any good at trimmimg you can just use the trimmer to edge.

That's my plan! I also do some tree trimming at my house so I need the attachment as well.  In due time maybe in a few years they will have some inventory lol.
