Previously the range had consisted of a 30cm option and a 38cm brushless model, but now two new string trimmers with brushless motors have been introduced to complement the existing two. The 33cm option has a 2mm dual line and two-speed functionality, while the 38cm option has a 2.4mm dual line and variable speeds, with a bike handle for extra manoeuvrability and operator comfort.
All four trimmers boast a free-rotating bump feed cap, meaning that the cutting head can be rested on the ground during use without being worn away, a lightweight aluminium shaft and a quickly adjustable handle for maximum comfort, balance and control.
The 30cm (with a single speed option) and 33cm (with two speeds) models have a 2mm line diameter, while the two 38cm models (with variable speeds) have a 2.4mm line. All models have a dual line that lowers vibration, cuts faster and easily slots into the contoured eyelet, which reduces nuisance breakage of the tough nylon line.
The trimmers are powered by EGO's 56V lithium-ion battery, which is available as 2.0Ah, 4.0Ah, 5.0Ah or 7.5Ah. All batteries are interchangeable across the entire EGO range as well as featuring the brand's patented arc design and "keep cool" cell technology.
The EGO Power+ system is a breakthrough in every way and has been designed to deliver a new level of cordless performance. In just 30 minutes the 4.0Ah battery can be fully recharged using the rapid charger, which is another first in the lawn and garden world. The entire EGO range is said to match, if not exceed, the performance of petrol products without the noise, fuss or fumes. Prices for the new trimmers start from £129 + VAT.
