Potential Add-Ons for EGO String Trimmer

One of the most requested tools on this forum is an EGO Edger, which I have also requested as well. That said; WORX recently came out with their 56V String Trimmer, with (2) cool features I can see EGO provides for their future string trimmer(s).

  1. Command Feed line length provides line with a touch of a button.
  2. In-Line wheeled edging to give users a "cleaner" cut.

I personally like the "hard edge" edger, but if that is not possible, then the (In-Line) wheel attachment will do ... hint hint EGO!

For further review, see the attached link (https://www.protoolreviews.com/tools/outdoor-equipment/worx-56v-string-trimmer-2/20695/) from Pro Tool Reviews on this new trimmer.

When comparing this to our "current" 15" trimmer; however, we have several key advantages. 
  • EGO (0.095" line diameter) vs. WORX (0.080" line diameter)
  • EGO (15" cutting diameter) vs. WORX (13" cutting diameter)
That being said; I am extremely happy with my 15" trimmer - but love to see what EGO has in store for future development.

Update the string with the rhino tuff .095 tri blade string...not the spiral one... You won't regret it...

Agreed!  Interestingly, I bought my 15" trimmer back in May of this year and still using the same string it came with.  Been dying to test out the Rhino Tuff, but my yard is not big enough so my "original" spool still has plenty of strings left for next Spring & Summer - will have to wait until 2017!
