The No. 1 rated brand in cordless outdoor power equipment, EGO, continues to elevate lawn care to the next level with the introduction of the Telescoping 15-inch String Trimmer with POWERLOAD™ technology. Its latest innovation enhances the world’s first self-winding string trimmer by giving the user the ability to customize the shaft for ultimate comfort.
EGO spent years perfecting its POWERLOAD technology to deliver the power, cut quality, and runtimes of premium gas string trimmers without the frustration of loading string into the head. Patented POWERLOAD technology is a breakthrough for battery-powered outdoor power equipment. All you need to do is insert up to 15 feet of line into the head, push a button, and the head automatically winds professional-grade, dual-spiral twisted line into the head to get back to work in seconds. To advance the line, simply bump the head against the ground. In addition to convenience, the bump line feed offers more control over the amount of line used.
The new heavy-duty aluminum shaft is adjustable in length at the flip of a lever to ensure the most ergonomic fit and feel. The quick-release D-handle is easily customizable for perfect hand positioning for optimum balance.
“We spent years researching consumers’ motivations when using a string trimmer,” says Mike DeMaira of EGO. “Certainly, simple line loading is the No. 1 requirement, and we solved that with the POWERLOAD technology. But being able to change the length of the string trimmer to fit any user’s height was also a top desire on consumers’ minds. The telescopic shaft ensures nothing is ever out of reach.”
With a press of the trigger, the 56 Volt 2.5Ah ARC Lithium™ battery and the high-efficiency brushless motor spring to life delivering 45 minutes of continuous cut time on a single charge. Recharge in just 50 minutes, and then get back to work. Every EGO 56 Volt ARC Lithium battery powers the entire POWER+ platform of 50-plus tools.
This new string trimmer also features a two-speed transmission that gives the user the ability to select a low or high gear ideal for any task. It can even be used in inclement weather thanks to its weather-resistant construction. Every EGO string trimmer comes with a variable speed trigger with safety lock to give users even more control of the tool’s performance.
Consumers can also take comfort in knowing that this string trimmer carries a five-year tool warranty and three-year battery warranty when registered at egopowerplus.com.
