Jodi Marks: You know, I love it when I got that much power in my hands. Take a look at this string trimmer by Ego. And when I talk about power, look at how much power I got. I got a 56-volt lithium-ion battery that’s driving this bad boy.
But look this battery is easy to pop off, it’s very lightweight. But I’m telling you what, with this battery you get just about as much power in this string trimmer as you would with a gas operated string trimmer.
It’s very balanced, which makes it very easy to use, so you don’t get fatigued. You’ve got about a 12-inch swath as you are cutting, so it speeds up the process.
But I have to say, I like this slow start. You press the safety, and when you turn it on it doesn’t jolt right on, it’s a slow start up. See that? And I’ll tell you what, with that much power, I can’t believe how quiet it is.
