When recently researching the potential purchase of the EGO line of yard tools, I found it troubling that I cannot find any information on which of the batteries and chargers come with each unit. I'm told there are 2 and 4 AH batteries and 2 different levels of chargers, however I'm not finding which ones come with which tools. Can you please answer this and potentially consider adding this to the standard information on this line of equipment?

on the web page for each product it clearly states which battery it comes with - you just have to look at the 'specifications' page.  to save you the trouble - all the tools come with the 2.0Ah battery and charger except for the lawnmower which comes with the more powerful units.

Thanks, I saw that later... I kept going to the Home Depot page which didn't say that. So everything but the mower gets the 2ah and a regular charger, but the mower gets a 4ah and the quick charger? And they can all run on each other's batteries? Seems like most of these new rechargeable lowers come with 2 batteries these days but not this one right?

yeah these all come with the charger and just one battery - the big difference here is - you get darned near an hour off of one of the batteries compared to about half that time from other manufacturer's batteries. i had one that only lasted fifteen minutes from a different company (B&D)
I get enough 'juice' from my battery to power the string trimmer, and then use the same battery to power the blower.  and it RE charges in about a half hour.

I really don't think you have to worry much about handling of warranty.  If they did run into a bad streak and went out of business, I believe that Home Depot would have to do something.  If their Chainsaw turns out to be a big win (quality and engineering), then it will solidify EGO in the high end market of battery powered yard equipment.

You can also purchase the trimmer and blower etc without the battery and purchase a 4 mah battery separately. The cost is the same but you get the extra long running battery. However, it will add significant weight to the trimmer and blower. I'm getting ready to make the purchase and keep changing my mind about the which way to go. :-/

update.... I purchased with both sizes of battery. I have to say, the batteries last so long that I'm loving the 2 ah for everything except the mower. It's much lighter and the balance is better with the lighter battery, especially with the trimmer. I have a yard that is about 5000 sq ft. Pretty big for our area. I can do all of my trimming and have plenty of power to use the blower for clean up.

Hi Gary. My advice is to stay away from the 2ah batteries all together. The extra weight actually balances the trimmer and blower really well. And the run time, you know the deal.

I plan to pick up either another 4AH battery or the new 7 when it comes out and when I get the chain saw, which is my next tool purchase unless my weed trimmer dies before the end of summer (unlikely). I can see just using the big battery in my mower and sharing the 4 between trimmer, saw, and maybe the blower (my least used yard tool). I also have a hedge trimmer that sees little use, so I don't know if that would be an eventual purchase or not. The chain saw and trimmer are just eventualities, at this point. Since my saw died two years ago, that's the plan...
