Will EGO come out with a stand alone edger? I already have a mower, snow blower, trimmer & blower and don't want the component system. Please EGO, support your customers.

Highly unlikely. The purpose of the multi tool is to add lots of stuff in one unit. Not many brands offer a stand alone edger these days. But I could be wrong. I don't know things.

I'd be fine with a wheel accessory for the string trimmer so it would make using the trimmer a bit easier as an edger. But, I'd buy a stand alone edger if one became available.

We do not currently have plans for this, Ron. However, this is definitely a suggestion that has been communicated with the team.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled EGO Lawn edger.

Does EGO plan to make a lawn edger or a string trimmer/edger?  I already have a mower, blower & snowblower and love their stuff.  I want to get a trimmer, but my current trimmer is a combo trimmer/edger and would hate to lose the edger option.  I am not interested in the new power head system - not too impressed with the value.

So you are asking if Ego will make a trimmer/edger different from the one already offered, which is the PH1400/STA1500/EA0800 (power head system) or the ST1500 (trimmer only)?  But since you've already stated you're not impressed with the value of the PH1400 combo, then it appears you have already ruled out that option.  Therefore, the answer to your question appears to be that Ego will not have a tool that satisfies your value requirement.

However, the PH1400 combo is a very well built tool; and if Ego ever introduces an adapter which allows customers to use "universal trimmer attachments" on the PH1400, that would definitely add value; especially to someone who has invested in universal attachments and can then buy the PH1400 tool only and continue to use their attachments.

Here's a thread with a PROTOTYPE adapter:

The link you supplied doesn't work.  I did go ahead and buy the EGO trimmer and am happy with it, but it does not do edging.  Since EGO already makes an edger as part of their combo system, how hard would it be to just add a dedicated handle and sell a stand alone edger?  That would suit me fine and I would definitely purchase that.  I am making do with an old string edger for now that doesn't work real well in the hopes that EGO will change their mind and add an edger to their lineup.  Based on other comments I have seen there certainly seems to be a lot of interest in a stand alone edger from EGO.
