Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing trimmer Very light and easy to use, it is also weighted perfect. The motor is in the head so no speedo cable running down the handle like regular gas trimmers. So I would have to believe it will outlast any gas trimmer. I did put a little heavier line on spool and it feeds great. Thanks ego for making another great product! November 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by The little trimmer that cried and said I can't, UNTIL. Ok, to be honest, I was going to return this item. The string was weak, fed poorly on bump, and just didn't feel powerful enough to do the edging I needed against rough edges like concrete and bricks. My gas Ryobi would do it all. THEN. I removed that green grooved string that came with the trimmer. It really wasn't meant to hold up and believe me, it doesn't. I grabbed my huge spool of orange non-grooved .095 string and popped out the spool. It is VERY easy to thread. I put in my larger lawn mower 4ah batter and tried again. WOW what a difference. I was able to edge, trim, and knock out any job my Ryobi gas trimmer use to handle. I'm thrilled. To the design team of EGO, dump the smaller battery, don't even bother. The larger battery balances all of the tools better from front to back, giving you a much more workable center of gravity. Dump the cheap green/grooved string. It doesn't hold up and causes feeding problems. Go with thicker .095 Orange without grooves. NOW you have a trimmer/Edger worthy of tackling a lawn. June 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by string trimmer the edger/trimmer does a good job and has plenty of power HOWEVER-the bump/feed feature is not working i will try it one more time. if it does not work, i will return it July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a awesome trimmer I only used this Trimmer only twice, because, I purchased in the fall, but it was easy to used and start. I'm looking forward to the coming year, so I can use it every week. December 9, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Kind of makes me want to go back to a gas trimmer I bought the trimmer and the blower after speaking with a sales person in the store who told me that she has a big yard and uses the EGO mower and doesn't need to charge but every 2 cuttings. She thought that my using the trimmer and then the blower would not require charging but every couple of weeks also. WRONG... after trimming the yard (which I now do before I cut grass) I put the battery back on charge so that I can then use the blower after I cut the grass. Blowing off deck and leaves, I'm only getting about a 20 minute run time. Definitely not happy with such a short run time. November 4, 2014
