Ego Multi-Tool Review

Ego Multi-Tool Review

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.

    Most useless review ever. Guy obviously doesn’t get out and mow lawns every day….

  4. Russell Petrie on August 19, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    they have a carbon fibre extension pole

  5. M R on August 19, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    The damn thing is so heavy way heavier than any petrol powered I’ve ever owned. Good luck using the pole saw for half hr.

    Hi so what’s this product called history moist about?

  7. Vaughan Giles on August 19, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Have you ended up trying the brushcutter? Think it can handle gorse?

  8. d hamby on August 19, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Have you ever used the 40v Ryobi Expand-It multitool system?

  9. Angela Monroe on August 19, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    You don’t say if its brushless. You also mention if its the same battery that’s used in the lawnmower

  10. Mike Rowland on August 19, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    You drank the Koolaid. I did so as well.

  11. Dean Anderson on August 19, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Am wondering how well the Brush work? I want to brush gravel out of my yard along the street.

  12. Mark Halden on August 19, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Great timing, just waiting for the 52cm lawnmower I purchased to turn up and I’m really interested in the multi tool as a future purchase.

  13. Mr Waratah on August 19, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    One quick question can you do a review on how deep the cultivator can go. You only did the surface, I am just worried about not getting deep enough to cultivate the soil

  14. JR Lopez on August 19, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I am an authorized Dealer in the USA, Orlando/Florida and the equipment is extremely well manufactured, powerful and reliable…
    Most issues as to failure is User Problem, not reading or following instructions shown on the manuals, My recommendation
    is always refer, use and take advantage of manuals, before taking unit for unneeded service. Battery power equipment is sort of a Newer technology and useful, environmental friendly and reliable.

    First Matty boi

  16. Russell Petrie on August 19, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    it is brilliant equipment multi tool love to see how the tiller works and if its gear box is compatible for the sweeper

  17. mollydog444 on August 19, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    The brush cutter doesn’t seem to be available in the U. S. Why is that?

  18. xXTheFreakWithinXx on August 19, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    When you get free stuff and sponsored by a company, you really can’t say anything bad or you lose sponsorship. With free stuff you don’t get buyers remorse and the fact that it is just handed to you without a loss to the pocket book, makes one complacent and can’t really say if it was worth the money. the review was done well but I feel those 2 reasons are enough to discount any real test and flaws a real buyer would talk about. This is the world we live in now, where everyday people make reviews and become a tool to these companies and really get handcuffed because they will lose if they say anything bad about the product.

    I’m a pro landscaper and I used both the Ego and Ryobi 5a systems, they both have a longway to catch up to fuel systems, Allthough ok for city dwellers. The backpack system is handy when you do a long hedging or pruning. In all the commercial line of Ego is realy a semi and def not for heavy applications, not worth it if you’re a tradie!

  20. Jon D on August 19, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    I have never heard someone call the weed eater a whipper snipper

  21. Dash Cargill on August 19, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    G’day buddy just wondering if echo rotary scissors would fit this unit?

  22. aeromedical67 on August 19, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    This is how you drop a months salary all at one time. Good looking equipment.

  23. ColdChills01 on August 19, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Is there an update video on these products and or the newer models and accessory attachments?

  24. tahquameken on August 19, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Nice video. Maybe try it on some heavier work next time.

  25. Marky Mark on August 19, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Nice sponsored video.

  26. Electric Lawn Services on August 19, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    I run ego commercially, been running the power head for dethatching 8 hours a day almost the entirety of this month.

  27. Jason Morris on August 19, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    ego looks good but for the price ryobi seems better

  28. S W on August 19, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    My only complaint with the multitool is I don’t know if it’s my height(5’7") or what but cannot find a position to use the edger where it doesn’t destroy my upperback and shoulder. I do have the shoulder strap so that helped. The power level is unreal though!

  29. david philips on August 19, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    *I have used Stihl for over 20 years 🌴 **** and after reading some reviews of this trimmer, I tried EGO Power+ , and I’m going to switch. Compared to several Stihl trimmers I’ve had, this one is easier to start, quieter, and feels at least as well built . A major plus is it doesn’t have the wonky, always leaking, complicated gas tank caps that Stihl has.*

  30. E Armstrong on August 19, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I wish you had shown the buttons on the power head and their functions

  31. Mad mad world on August 19, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    That review was garbage
    Think you would rather be back in bed

  32. Matthew Kiely on August 19, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Crikey Mate, trust an Aussie to call their channel Lawnporn. Get your Lawn On…spot ya

  33. Richard Berke on August 19, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    I want the blower

  34. Matt LaVoie on August 19, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I love term whipper snipper, haven’t heard that before, love it. Thanks for the review

  35. Nicko Does on August 19, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    G’day mate great video. Love what you do on the channel. I think you will find the plant at the front is nandina domestica, secret bamboo.

  36. Ace Hardy on August 19, 2021 at 10:41 pm


  37. Rich Smith on August 19, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Really good review. So glad I found this channel although I’m from the UK. Do you do overseas shipping on your merchandise?

  38. Matthew Sticher on August 19, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Good honest review, all the best with the new gardens.

  39. Talk Of The Town on August 19, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    I wish the MHC1502 kit wasn’t so hard to find. I’ll stick to my gas backpack Echo blower, for blowing leaves.
