I already have a mower, trimmer and a blower. Now that I am all set in chargers/batteries department, I need more equipment to use them in. Is there any new product planned? I already have a drill, so I will pass on that one. Grinder, reciprocating saw, portable pump, compressor  anyone?

I want an electric garden cart. Like 1000lb capacity. It would have to senses the handles pull direction and propell based on the pull force. That would be sweet. Replace wheel barrels.

Or a yard vacuum. Not like a blower/vac, a yard vacuum on wheels.

I like the vacuum idea. Easy to make, useful. And I am sorry, I have to reject the electric wheelbarrow idea- we start approaching Tesla scale here.
One more thing that is asking to be Egopowered is a nail gun.

No, seriously, Ego Power, is there any tool's purchase we should put off and wait for your product?

Market segment is tight with competition, EGO has to hold their cards close to their chest so that nothing leaks out until release.

How about the Edger....

Great idea! I, personally, can go without it here in Houston for a while, but I would not mind having it just in case global warming makes a wrong turn somewhere.

One more- superpowered LED flashlight.

I still think a vacuum is an excellent idea.  With that battery it could provide a LOT of power for 10 to 15 minutes.  I would want a small shop vac design for hardwood floors or take out to my cars.

A canister type vac would be most desirable.

I have a hoover air cordless, works great. But i want an EGO vacuum. One that is an upright and becomes a portable. Take out those stupid dyson vacuums.

I want to see the new Lawn mower have wheels that capture the energy from spinning to provide more power

That would mean resistance in the wheels.  With the weight of the mower, the wheels would probably just skid, or if you want just a little energy, the output power with very little resistance would be next to nothing.  That is why the Prius and other Electric vehicles use "generators" as the brakes because the they provide excellent resistance.

Its called regenative braking, It would be the opposite of self propelled. Now on the other hand, i have always thought it would be good to use overload to trigger resistance in wheel motors to cause this same effect, charge the battery, along with control the rate of speed that the mower goes. The only area that this would help is on sloped yards. Of course it also makes the mower self propelled.
