I love my Ego products but have hesitated to buy the weed trimmer as I do not like spool fed line. Is there a compatable rapid loader head.

Hi Peter,

Ego does not make any different trimmer heads for its trimmers, nor are they designed to fit aftermarket replacements.

Should they release something in the future they will be sure to let us know here. :-)

Another one interested in rapid loader compatibility. I changed all my previous string trimmers to them and they have been amazing minus having to deal with small engine problems.

I have a older model lawn trimmer that doesn't have the quick load bumper, how do I convert so I can use the quick load?

Bob, unless you have these two models (ST1500F and ST1500SF), then the Rapid Reload head is not recommended by EGO on "older" models (see the thread below from Jennifer from 4 days ago).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Can the old bump head be used on the trimmers instead of the rapid reload.

My customer likes the old bump head. Can he use the old style bump head?
