Outdoor Power Industry Leader EGO Introduces First String Trimmer Which Loads Line at the Push of a Button

Latest in Lithium Ion outdoor power tools from EGO furthers conversion from gas power

CHICAGO--()--Power, performance, durability and convenience are the top benefits consumers seek when choosing outdoor power equipment. This season, the industry leader EGO once again delivers the most advanced, innovative and powerful line of cordless battery-powered outdoor tools on the market. At the heart of the technology is EGO’s 56-volt Lithium Ion battery that charges from zero to full charge in as little as 30 minutes. In 2018, EGO offers three new innovations all featuring new-to-the-world innovation.

“We have spent the last decade researching, developing and perfecting our Lithium Ion battery technology and rethinking what’s possible in the outdoor power equipment category”

  • String Trimmer - Equipped with a patented Powerload trimmer head there is no more winding by hand. Simply feed the line in the head, press a button and that’s it. This feature was specifically designed to resolve consumers' #1 pain point, and will also include an industry first carbon fiber shaft, which is extremely strong but also very light. These two features combined make for a string trimmer that will change the industry forever.
  • Hedge Trimmer - This is the first and only cordless hedge trimmer with a 1” cut capacity in the market, with a run time of over one hour. With a brushless motor, a true 24” bar, a 1” cut capacity and fully serviceable blades this hedge trimmer can do the job of any of its gas counterparts but without the noise fuss or fumes.
  • Blower - The 580 CFM Power+ Blower is the most powerful handheld blower in the market. Equipped with an all new variable speed dial and the EGO signature turbo button.

The EGO tool platform also delivers convenience. The tools’ cordless design allows for easy maneuvering around trees, fences and decks. And its light-weight folding design allows for easy storage and transportation.

“This Spring and every season, The Home Depot aims to introduce the latest innovation to market to make our customers lives easier. We are excited to launch, with our exclusive partner EGO a series of industry firsts in the outdoor power segment, including the Powerload String Trimmer, a game changer in the marketplace,” said Ryan Duffy, Senior Merchant of Outdoor Power at The Home Depot. “We continue to work with our vendors to develop true innovation and best in class merchandise.”

“We have spent the last decade researching, developing and perfecting our Lithium Ion battery technology and rethinking what’s possible in the outdoor power equipment category,” said Joe Turoff, EGO Chief Marketing Officer. “The entire EGO team is excited to launch the latest consumer focused innovations all honoring our core promise to deliver the power and performance of gas but without the noise fuss or fumes.”

All products are available exclusively at The Home Depot and www.homedepot.com.
