Yep, same here. I have a 20v hedge trimmer and that thing is a beast. It even impressed the lady who was doing my landscaping when her gas trimmer wouldn't start. She said she might scrap the gas and get one of these.

Waiting on the next sale. I want to try it on my cypress stumps even though I have a nice Stihl one.

This. I'm in pretty deep on big red. Cordless drills, saws, packouts, etc. That made it very easy to jump onto their cordless outdoor equipment platform. 100% love their blower. Not 100% happy with the weedeater. It's got plenty of power and I get everything done with a half charge on the 9.0ah battery. My complaint is that the head isn't very sturdy (already ground through the bottom rim of the casing by edging against concrete) and I find myself having to tilt it down more for some reason. The string outlets don't appear to be higher on the head that other weedeaters but it just doesn't seem to cut as good as possible holding it in a perfectly comfortable position like my Echo used to.

I'm all in on cordless. Ego is the shite. Easily the best purchase I've made in the past 5 years.

Bought 1st 2 with battery and charger, last 2 online, the tool only since I had 2 batteries and 2 chargers

Love em. Lotta folk rag on them but for what I use them for never had an issue, plenty of power and run time.

Does anyone by chance have any experience with the battery blowers from Harbor Freight?

I have the 12" 20v chainsaw and used it on a smallish (15-18") ash tree a few weeks ago. It did surprisingly well. I've heard the DeWalt 16" flexvolt chainsaw is amazing.

ToolBarn.com runs some great deals on DeWalt and other brands.

The cordless blowers are not nearly as refined as the cordless string trimmers. They make some damn good corded blowers though.

re: cordless blower and other cordless tools
Echo 56v system started with the chain saw, and wound up with string trimmer and blower. Cant say enough about them so far battery life is awesome and I dont miss the gas and pulling the string. The chain saw is awesome. In hind site I would up with a bunch of Milwaukee tools with batteries thru work and now might have gone a different direction instead of the ECHO but like I said very happy with ECHO.

re: cordless blower and other cordless tools
I like Ryobi and I'll tell you why.

They have upgraded their 18V battery three times in the last fifteen years and THE NEW BATTERY ALWAYS WORKS WITH THE OLD TOOLS.

I started off with an 18V ten-piece power tool set from Home Depot right after Katrina. (It was quite a deal; ten pwer tools, two batteries, a charger, and a rolling tool bag for $280!)

I now have 30-plus tools that all use the same batteries. I don't worry that they will become obsolete any time soon.

I guess it was about five or six years ago that I first tried their 40V line-up with a string trimmer. I then got their blower and hedge trimmer. I am very happy with them. If my Honda gas mower ever finally gives up the ghost I will get the Ryobi 40V mower.


Full disclosure: I will admit that my neighbor's Echo gas blower is more powerful than my Ryobi. But not so much better that I will ever go back to gas.

I bought the 40v weed rather a couple of months ago and absolutely love it. I’m buying the blower this weekend.

For those with Ego mowers, how much more life does the 7.5 battery get than the 5.0? My 5.0 runs out when Im almost done.

re: cordless blower and other cordless tools
Are any battery powered string trimmers manufactured in the US? I’m a fairly new home owner and got a TORO lawn mower but their trimmers are all made in China. I get that it’s probably a stupid thing to worry about, but I’d prefer to buy American if there is a decent option.

Dewalt. I have the blower and weed eater. Love the weed eater. Blower is good for blowing off the deck or light driveway duty

re: cordless blower and other cordless tools
I can mow my entire front and back yard on a quarter acre and still have plenty of juice to use the same battery with the blower and clean up the driveway, sidewalk, etc.

ETA: 7.5ah battery.

re: cordless blower and other cordless tools
I've had the Echo 58V trimmer for 2 seasons now and love it. This weekend I picked up the Echo edger, hedge trimmer, and an extra battery and charger. First use was fantastic. I'm gonna love not having to pull out my extension cord for every job.

I have an Ego string trimmer. I love it.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago and have never loved a string trimmer more than this one. It was the highest rated electric string trimmer by Consumer Reports.

A week after buying it, I learned it has a different model to use with multiple attachments. But the leaf blower may not be one of them. It’s actually cheaper at Home Depot than through Amazon.
