Power head and multi tools, short review

I bought the Mower, hedger trimmer and blower last year. Before buying into EGO products I had an echo Gt-225. I it hated because of the bent shaft and having to bend over during trimming. I also used the echo as an edger; which I just sucked at and never liked the edge it made. As soon as I bought the mower I was impressed with the quality and power it put out. I couldn't justify jumping to a cordless string trimmer but wished they had attachments with an edger to make it a better deal. As we all know they released what we having been asking for. Immediately after seeing the add I bought the power head, pole saw, and edger. They arrived last Monday and were quickly put to work. The edger is fantastic, with plenty of power. I set it down and it kinda feels like its self propelled , and just makes a perfect edge. The pole saw didn't get to much work as I only have 1 tree; so in less than 15 minutes I was done. The biggest branch was about 3 inches but it cut everything like butter. So i got a pole saw to use about 15 minutes a year, lol. The lawn was let go a little longer than I normally let it and was the first time the lawn mower's battery died before finishing the whole yard. With that an also getting the new tools I wanted another 5.0 battery. So it at this point I knew that I had entered the EGO rabbit hole; Seeing as a 5.0 battery is a very bad deal by itself but looks like a steal if you throw a chainsaw in for another 80, I now own my first chainsaw with nothing to chainsaw. Now seeing as I had everything except the trimmer I also had to buy it, i swear it made me. I received it yesterday and was blow away. It really does have more power than my echo. I liked the tool being longer and not hurting my back and most important no gas. I have been blow away with quality of all the tools, i hope you just keep expanding making more and more products I most definitely will buy.

Happy Customer

Nice collection, can I ask why you purchased the string trimmer and not the string trimmer attachment for the power head?  I am waiting for the power head kit to come out....

Rich, if you look closely at the pictures you'll see the string trimmer attachment is what he got. :-)
