I am upset that a year after I bought the regular trimmer that there is now a powerload option. I purchased ego because its lighter and easier to use as a smaller female. I am super bummed that I would have to purchase a whole new trimmer to get the benefit of the powerload option. it takes me FOREVER to load there string that breaks after a few minutes then I struggle again to get the line on!!!!
will there eventually be an option to buy the powerload part for a cheaper price?

Perhaps switching to a different type of string would work better for you?

I see what you’re saying about a new model coming out right after you bought yours, but I don’t think it’s fair to be upset at the company for innovating and developing new products. All consumer products get better with time, not just lawn equipment. ;-)

Just look at computers. Obsolete every 4 months.

Computers don’t go obsolete quite that fast anymore, but I get what you’re saying. Companies release updated models of products every year.
