I have an EGO push mower with the 56 volt lithium ion batter, 5.0 Ah batter and charger. Will that battery work in this trimmer.
Asked by: Steven
Yes. I also have the push mower with the 5.0 Ah battery, and it works fine with the trimmer. The curved handle can be adjusted up and down the shaft to balance with the extra weight of the 5 Ah battery.

I get that the split shaft, according to EGO's rep's answers on several questions, "CAN be folded" or "can REMAIN folded for storage," versus the straight shaft. And yes, it's easier to ship a split shaft model but that's a one-time advantage in most cases - I won't be shipping my trimmer frequently. MY FIRST QUESTION: What's involved with unfolding the split shaft to use the trimmer and then folding it back up to store it? Is there a quick release button or collar or a similar way to lock/unlock the hinge? Or would the user have to remove screws everytime they want to fold the trimmer for storage and put it back together to use it? Also, some online reviews mention that over time, the aluminum fitting at the split loosens. What's the real life experience of owners of EGO trimmers with a split? True? (What happens with the split on other brands is irrelevant here.) There's a SIGNIFICANT price difference between the split and straight CF shafts so it's important to have full, honest disclosure on this topic (I'm talking to you, EGO). Being able to easily fold the unit for storage is attractive, but NOT if I have to break out tools to do it each time I use the trimmer. MY OTHER QUESTION: Why did EGO decide to produce a solid shaft model? Are there, in fact, issues with loosening on the split shafts? What problem is EGO solving with the straight shaft? And please do not say, "Because some customers prefer a straight shaft," because that would be a ridiculous and unhelpful response. WHY would they prefer that? Help us understand the value of the more expensive straight shaft. Thank you!

Not being associated with EGO in any way, I'm obviously not an expert, but I respected the thoroughness and articulateness of your question, as well as your foreseeing how a customer service person (for ANY company) might miss your points or be evasive -- no offense, EGO, but we've all seen it happen with various companies. I might be able to provide some useful feedback. I'm still in the shopping stage and your questions were among my own. I personally have decided against the split shaft because I see no advantage to me -- other than perhaps a relatively small one-time money savings -- and a few possible disadvantages. First and probably foremost, it's just one more part that can (like any other) cause problems. No matter how unlikely that may be, if there's also no advantage then to me there's no point to inviting risk. Just off the top of my head they might include screws coming loose (as you alluded to), something to catch on brush or a fence, or a place for moisture to accumulate. Like you, I also can't imagine shipping or transporting my trimmer frequently, if at all. Hopefully any repair work could be taken care of by Home Depot, and any transportation could be handled by my small SUV. Not only is there *not* a quick-release mechanism for separating the two shaft parts (according to two or more YouTube reviews I've seen) but one of them specifically mentioned that it took a surprisingly large number of turns to insert or remove those screws. I guess that would be no big deal for most people, especially if they have young wrists or a power screwdriver, but it matters to me as mine is never charged or handy until I'm planning a project. I believe I saw elsewhere in these questions (perhaps for a different EGO model) that EGO claims no difference in weight between straight and split shafts, but I find that hard to believe. It may just be ounces but the collar must surely have more weight than any small length of shaft that may have been removed. Finally, I don't see any advantage storage-wise to a split shaft for me. I will defend EGO in one sense, however. It's often hard to make sense of the whims of consumers in terms of WHY we would want one feature over another. As long as it's not detrimental to the operation or the brand's reputation, it would sometimes be in any manufacturer's best interests to make a given option available even if they, themselves, don't know why customers would want it.

56V Lith-Ion Cordless Electric 15in. Powerload String Trimmer Carbon Fiber Straight Shaft Kit 5.0Ah Battery & Charger is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine but over priced. I wanted to 5.0 ah... Nice machine but over priced. I wanted to 5.0 ah battery and the auto wind line option so had to settle for this. Luckily price was not an issue for me, but many consumers will simply get something else. Keep in mind the 5.0 ah battery is a little heavy. I also got the battery backpack link to lighten up the trimmer. Power and performance are good. The battery lasted more than one trimming session before I had to recharge. So far I really like this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great string trimmer I have a 360' ft fence that I need to trim both sides of plus around my house and other things. It's easy to use and the battery lasts the whole time. I have two 5.0 ah batteries that I got with my ego snow blower that works great as well, but just the one is needed and lasts the whole time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Easy Plenty of power to get the job done w/o having to recharge. Solid construction, yet lightweight. Ease of use getting started and finishing up-no long extension cord to drag around and keep from getting tangled up in lawn tables and chairs, or around trees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisified Do to present weather conditions, I have had limited operation time, however in the brief test approximately 45 mins of operation it is a great tool. I was amazed to the battery life. I Love the power load feature.
