Well HD did in fact post the MHC1502 on their site. Unfortunately, they must have made a mistake (or think we are stupid). The price is $150 more than the kit with the trimmer. That is crazy. Man I am glad I did not wait and ordered mine from RCPW (arrives Thursday eve).

For what it's worth RCPW still has this available, now at $439. My order will arrive 7 days after I ordered it.

$600 is ridiculous. The Power Head and two attachments are $350 a la carte, which means it's another $250 for the 5Ah battery and charger. Where's the combo pricing? This is more than buying each part individually.

Looks like the MSRP (according to that RCPW site) is $449. Which is exactly what you would expect, and the same as buying a kit and edger.

Unless this kit includes a second battery or something then Home Depot screwed up:

Does anyone know if HD will price match with RCPW?

Not sure with all of the fine print, but I think the answer is yes they will match (but they will not beat it by 10% as it is not an in store purchase).

$250 for a battery and charger? That's a steal....

We've all waited this long - Just wait until they correct the price. You guys don't honestly believe this is anything but a mistake on HD's part?

The last price mistake that EGO acknowledged was a price mistake, EGO responded immediately. EGO hasn't responded officially yet, which has me concerned that this isn't a price mistake but a bad price by Home Depot.


Well actually it took them a day to respond and two days to figure it out, so there is hope:

The correct price is $399.  We’re working to fix the price listing ASAP.

If you move the top part of the vertical line in the 5 to the other side of the horizontal line, it makes a 3.  It's not a pricing error, it's a geometry error.  ;-)

I'm just gonna throw this comment out there. I realize that this is a pricing error (as a kit plus attachment 349 + 99) is cheaper.
 BUT
 anybody else questioning why it's taking so long for the price adjustment? or is it really not 399? 

Seems to me if the error had been the other way- as in 199 or 299 instead of 399- You can be sure it would have been fixed AND updated in a matter of seconds if not minutes. Maybe they are trying to do damage control between HD and other retailers for undercutting them? 
questions....anyways - office hours are likely over and probably nothing will be then be updated till tomorrow.

They probably do act quicker when they are losing money. But I think Home Depot's process is just 1-2 days slow.

If one has a State Tax ID or tax exemption certificate there is no tax at Home Depot. If you use a HD credit card to pay you can get 6 months same as cash and the shipping is free for items over $49.

Sorry I missed this earlier - Can confirm $399 order by calling HD Customer Service.  Kit to arrive NLT 25 May.  See thread from earlier today.  Ego (Amber) and HD (Linda and then Kayla) were on it quickly.  HD website hopefully will be corrected by tomorrow, but HD will honor correct price of $399 if you call.  You will receive an electronic receipt that shows $599 less $200 promotional discount to provide you with correct price.  See thread - https://community.egopowerplus.com/ego/topics/request-for-update-on-power-head-kit-availability-orig...
