The multi-tool EGO Brush cutter is freely available in Australia and other countries but not in the US. Why isn't it sold in the US when other manufacturers like Ryobi do so ?

Ego is making new attachments available every year, so I suspect the brush cutter will be available here eventually. There are likely a lot of regulatory hurdles to jump through to get tools approved for sale here. I know UL certification alone can take a long time. There also just may not be as big a demand for a brush cutter as there is for the other attachments they've come out with.
