I'm very interested in EGO string trimmers. I'm having a challenge narrowing down the choices. I see 15" and 12", 2.5 Ah and 5.0 Ah batteries, different heads, and other differences. Can someone simplify how to narrow down the choices and differences?

Thanks in advance.

12” bump feed only

15” has options:
Bump feed
Rapid Reload bump feed
Powerload bump feed
All 15” models available as straight or split shaft (no difference once you get it home and assemble it).

The 2.5Ah battery is a great choice for most people with average sized lawns. If you have several acres or hundreds of feet of fence to trim, a 5Ah battery might make sense. These trimmers will last most people 30 min or so with a 2.5Ah battery doing fairly steady trimming.
