Ego String Trimmer and Backpack Blower Reviews

Family HandymanSWL: Ego String Trimmer

Ego’s cordless string trimmer makes yardwork less of a pain because of the power its battery packs and its Powerload head design, which allows you to feed the line and press a button to wind it.

Why Cordless String Trimmers are Great

Cordless string trimmers are great for a number of reasons but one of the first that stands out is the ease of movement. You don’t have to worry about nicking an extension cord with your string trimmer again. Plus, you don’t have to run to the gas station to grab some fuel for your string trimmer. Just keep your battery charged before you start edging.

Ego’s string trimmer comes with a carbon shaft and a 5-year limited warranty. It uses a 56V, 2 1/2 amp battery.

You can pick one up for $229, which includes the battery and charger, at The Home Depot.
