The Ego Multitool is an exceptional machine for the home garden.
Essentially it is a power head which is powered by a rechargeable battery that is also able to be switched into Ego’s mowers and other products. There are three sizes of battery and even the smallest one didn’t die after doing 650m2 of edging and trimming. When the battery does stop, it is a quick recharge…. however I doubt with a home garden needing a recharge will ever be an issue.
The lawn edger is great. Best I’ve used! The hedger is a great tool but it can get weighty on bigger jobs. The trimmer is powerful but you loose the pcowerload feature on the pcowerload trimmer because the motor is in the head part of the tool, still a great trimmer. The cultivator is great and demonstrates the power of the electric motor to move earth – not an easy task. The pole saw is fantastic and getting the power saw or hedge trimmer kit gets you the extension pole which believe me is very handy. I haven’t used the brush cutter yet but I would expect that to be a breeze.
The backpack battery holder is useful if you want to use the largest battery to save a bit of weight at the tool however unless you are on the one tool for a larger job, I doubt you’d need this.. It made having the backpack extension needed to be taken off so I could get to the attachment part of the tool. A bit cumbersome and messy but just might be the thing if you want the weight off the tool. I don’t think I would use it much for my situation.
This is the best multitool I have used and I have used a few over the years. You cannot discount that it is quieter than petrol and the fatigue through vibration is less, this machine is smooth. You can see why battery tools are increasingly popular and for good reason.
