EGO: Battery Powered Tools That Dominate The Competition
When it comes to lawnmowers, leaf blowers, snow throwers, and all other lawn care related products you don’t really think of innovation as being a selling point. You look at power, price, where the closest store is, and maybe hunt around for some sales. The shopping experience hasn’t really changed for years!
Now is the shifting of an era in lawn care tools, with battery powered tools that can not only hold their own against their corded and gas-powered competitors but in some cases even outperform them! EGO is a brand that has taken the battery-powered lawn care tool market by storm, and they’re not going away anytime soon. Let’s take a look at who EGO is, and what they have to offer!
Who is EGO?
EGO has spent the last decade developing and perfecting their technology. The EGO POWER+ platform is taking the world by storm, and people swear by the system! The POWER+ systems allows you to use any size battery for ANY tool in the EGO POWER+ lineup. You can go from mowing the lawn with your mower to scaping the edges with your edger using the same battery in no time flat. With the same power and performance as gas tools, it’s no wonder why the masses are flocking to EGO! Their patented battery technology boasts incredible recharge times as well, with as little as 25 minute charge times getting you back out there faster than ever before with a battery powered tool.
