@kt84@twtxt.net How long does the battery last? I’m skeptical of electric yard equipment like that. I had to borrow an electric string trimmer a few weeks ago. Piece of garbage! It struggled to cut through anything, and the battery died in less than 20 minutes. I don’t think it was a real inexpensive one, either.

I’ll have my real gas one (that would cut your leg off) running by the time the weeds come back.

@mckinley@twtxt.net Actually… EGO Power are actually really good shit 😅 They use 48v LiPo batteries (in this nice modular design) and all their “tools” and the motors they use in everything are fully brushless motors.

Essentially, runtimes are long, the motors are very very powerful (you could cut your leg off). They even have a chainsaw (which I have) as well as a powerful blow vac (air) and hedger, and gras trimmer (all of which we have).

The only one of their products that doesn’t cut the mustard (so to speak) is the Lawn Mower (not the ride-on one, I’m sure that thing is a powerful beast), which doesn’t cut out grass very well, which really is no fault of AGO as our grass is really of a thick and hard to cut variety 😅
