I received an email newsletter from EGO today, a ToolGuyd sponsor, advertising that they have “the gifts that Dad REALLY wants.”
EGO says that the latest EGO innovations make the ultimate Father’s Day gift, and I am inclined to agree.
Here are the latest EGO tools:
EGO 21″ Select Cut Mower with Touch Drive (LM2135SP) – featuring a Select Cut multi-blade system and “exceeds the power of gas.” $599 at Lowe’s for the 7.5Ah kit.
EGO 765 CFM Blower (LB7654) – The industry’s most powerful blower, with up to 200 mph air speed. $329 at Lowe’s for the 5Ah kit.
EGO 16″ PowerLoad String Trimmer with Line IQ (ST1623T) – Automatically maintains a 16″ cutting swath; “work faster without bumping.” $299 at Lowe’s for the 4.0Ah kit (or $199 tool-only).
EGO 18″ Misting Fan (FN1800) – Delivers 5,000 CFM; stay cooler in the summer heat this year. $279 at Lowe’s (tool-only).
EGO is always a solid recommendation.
My friends and family can all be described in one of two ways. First, there are the ones that ask me what kinds of cordless outdoor power equipment they should get.
“I want a cordless mower.”
“Which battery-powered snow blower should I get?”
“Who makes the best cordless string trimmer?”
“I need a powerful leaf blower.”
The answer every time is EGO.
I love EGO leaf blowers, string trimmers, their snow blowers – every EGO tool I’ve used has been great so far. EGO tools perform well, and I trust the brand.
I did have a problem once – the scraper bar of my single stage snow blower sample broke at the corner after a few seasons of heavy use. It was easy for me to find, buy, and install a replacement scraper bar.
As far as I’m concerned, EGO is a fantastic “you don’t have to think about it” brand.
Then there are my friends and family who know that EGO occasionally sends me review samples. Usually when the latest blower or string trimmer lands in my hands, I pass along an older model to someone I know for further use and testing. I never would have guessed how in-demand these tools would be.
Every year, without fail – “so, do you have any EGO tools you’re done testing?” I will usually list off the other brands of cordless outdoor equipment I’m done with, but nothing comes close to EGO.
I don’t use EGO tools exclusively – I use cordless outdoor power tools by several brands – but that’s also because I have access to many brands’ battery systems and cordless platforms.
EGO tools are powered by their 56V Li-ion battery, which is why they tend to perform so much better than most consumer brands’ lower voltage cordless OPE systems.
So, for friends and family looking for recommendations, EGO has been my top choice for quite a few years now. And then there are my friends and family that ask for EGO by name, usually after they purchased their first EGO tools based on my recommendation.
What have your experiences with EGO been like?
