Get charged up for yard work with these cordless, eco-friendly maintenance tools

Get charged up for yard work with EGO’s line of battery-powered lawn and garden tools, which includes a mower, blower, string trimmer, hedge trimmer, and chainsaw.

A new patent-pending 56 Volt Lithium-Ion battery is the interchangeable performance driver of this collection, and is fully rechargeable in 30 minutes. This interchangeability means you can seamlessly switch between tools without stopping your work flow. The intuitive, quiet devices are easy on your ears as well as those of your neighbors.

EGO claims to rival gas powered equipment in terms of performance, while eliminating the harmful aspects of such fuel-centered appliances.

When the job is done, the mower’s foldable design allows for easy and convenient storage.

Operating at 3,000 strokes per minute, the EGO Power+ Hedge Trimmer allows for clean, quick cuts to get the job done faster and a large cutting capacity for trimming branches of to three quarters of an inch thick.
