More Ego Junk

Worked great for the 1st 12 months and then the line kept getting cut for some reason. Had to unclip the head to remove the remainder of the line stick inside and since then it doesn't feed properly with the auto feed button. Problem is that that's the only way to feed it so if that falls your stuffed.

Just buy Ryobi from Bunnings who give you 3 - 5 years no questions asked replacement warranty. Ego tools are not with it. Show details

A Battery powered whipper Snipper that works

I have always held off using battery powered tools for serious garden work ,until I come across this little gem, My back yard is a jungle and using normal machines excite bees and then I have two problems.This one smashed the jungle and I was impressed. It shredded everything and just kept punching out the line, the difficulty I initially experienced was threading the line I was doing it all wrong you simply push the line in the hole and press the button and it just winds it automatically, unlike ryobi ,let's not go there.
This unit has a good battery life and the carbon fibre rod makes it the perfect work tool Rapid charger also gets you back to work immediately 10 out 10 guys Show details

Just a Monster! Takes gardening to a whole new level!I did my research Highly recommend it

Have been buying battery operated line trimmers for a number of years and mostly disappointing.
This one rips through everything with ease. The IQ head feeds the line and just solves another issue Show details

Awesome Line Trimmer

Good trimmer with good battery life. I actually upgraded from a previous Ego model as the Powerload function was very enticing and did not regret my decision. Quiet, light and easy to reload. Show details

Disappointing

I purchased an earlier STI300 model four years ago. Cost $450 with BA1400 battery and charger. Initial battery time was 45 minutes with average use on 2000 sq.m. block. This has gradually decreased to the point where the battery is now U/S.
Replacement battery is $200-$250. Manual re-winding of the trimmer line is also frustrating.
After reading the reviews of all battery operated line trimmers, (love them or hate them) I am ditching battery trimmers and converting to a reputable brand of petrol operated unit, and the generally superior reviews and rating Show details

Extremely disappointed

I am a female who has been left to keep up with the mowing etc. I bought the Ego 56V Power line trimmer because it has an automatic line feed. Just replace the line and push a button and it is supposed to wind it for you. The hard part is putting the line in. It just does not work. You can buy replacement heads but I did not pay $499 to buy replacement heads. You should be able to feed the line through. Extremely disappointed and would not recommend. Initially I thought it was great.  Show details
