I don't own a power head now, but have the regular hedger and the chain saw. I would like to buy the pole hedger (HTA2000) as a kit with the power head, either with or without a battery. The other attachments are all sold as a kit with the powerhead- saw, string trimmer, edger.

And yes, I realize I could just buy the cheap edger kit at HD and just resell the edger attachment for super cheap, I have a gas edger that I am very happy with and don't really want to mess around with that.

Unfortunately there is no power head / hedge trimmer kit. 
And you are on the right path to the lowest cost.  Power head / edger kit $129 plus the hedge trimmer attachment $149.

Thanks!

Seems odd that EGO would price the bare Power Head $20 MORE than the Power Head + Edger Kit, doesn't it?

Yes, it is a pricing glitch that has been pointed out here many times and taken advantage of by many including me.

Cool. Let's not tell EGO.

I would think an EGO pole hedger would be safer...:)

Frank, just think of how happy you’d be if the Ego edger blew you away and you could get rid of one more gas engine? ;-)

If not, just sell it privately and keep the rest.

Haven't quite finished my big glass of Li-Ion Kool Aid just yet but I'm working on it.

Seriously, the Echo stuff has been so trouble free for me. My biggest gripe is that it is loud for the neighbors and I won't run it early in the morning.
