EGO has released a new attachment for the Multi-Head System! It's not the brush cutter some people have been waiting for---I still hold out hope the brush cutter will be released maybe next year.

The new attachment is a bristle brush, available now: https://www.homedepot.com/p/EGO-22-in-Multi-Head-System-Bristle-Brush-Attachment-for-EGO-Power-Head-BBA2100/310584412.

I look forward to finding out what 2,000 watts of sweeping power will do for my garage floor, especially after a winter's worth of melting snow from my car leaves it caked with salt and road cinders.

Anyone have any experience with an attachment like this? What other uses can I find for it when I eventually pick it up?

Why don't you blow out your garage with your EGO blower? The Bristle Brush would be great on light snow or scrubbing caked on dirt on driveway/walkway. I've seen these used to rip weeds out from crevices; I have a crevice brush for my Mantis along with every attachment they offer.
Your friend has shared a link to a Home Depot product they think you would be interested in seeing:

I do use my blower for quick cleanups, but it puts a lot of dust into the air. And the winter mess cakes on since it's wet when it goes down, so it could use a little help from a brush. Even a push broom isn't enough sometimes! (I use a power washer when I want to get really serious.)

Ken, you must live out in the wilderness to drag that much gunk into your garage. All I ever need to do is blow out light stuff that gets blown in with the wind.

BTW, the Bristle Brush attachment is coming home with me soon for no other task than light snows, which is what we usually get instead of the 15" we got in January that the Snow Blower did an outstanding job on.

It's not the snow that blows in that's the problem. As I wrote, it's the salt, sand and cinders the city puts down on the icy roads that comes into the garage in the snow stuck in the wheel wells and tires of my car, then collects on the floor when the snow melts off. After a winter of that it can get pretty caked onto the floor, with only the occasional chance to clear it off until spring.

Ken, I only wish the city would put out stuff on our roads during snow/ice. Our development pays a contractor to plow 1 swipe through our roads. The rest is up to each homeowners, but fortunately we're in NC where brutal winters are rare.

Brush looks like a nice tool for light snow and clean up work. Ego also released a new storage bag for the multitool

Storage bag for OCD people or having a need to transport. Mine are hung up on Gladiator Wall System hooks from Home Depot, where they're easy to grab and get to work.

I know this is a US site, but it is the only one for the EGO community.  Maybe someone from EGO will see this and comment / pass it on.  When is this attachment and more importantly the
Cultivator Attachment going to be available in Australia?

Ego employees don't participate in this forum, and I doubt they'd know about release dates in Australia. You'll probably have more luck emailing or calling Ego's customer service department in Australia. You can find contact information here: https://egopowerplus.com.au/pages/contact-us

Usually new products come to America later than other countries. We're still waiting for the brush cutter.

Update on my question.  The cultivator attachment is now available in Australia. It's not on their website as of today, but is on the Trade Tools website (Oz Stockist) -https://www.tradetools.com/product-range/cordless-tools/accessories/ego-multi-tool-cultivator-attach...

Which brushcutter are you after, we have the choice of 2.

The US model based on reviews is mostly 5-stars and sounds to be more powerful than your typical cordless cultivator. However, don't mistake this to be a tiller per se. I own a Mantis tiller (gas) that is amazing for its size/weight, but no match for rear tine tillers. I also own 2 cordless cultivators that does an excellent job working existing planting beds; an 18v and 20v.
