EGO Line IQ Battery-Powered String Trimmer | New for 2022

EGO Line IQ Adds Automatic Line Feeding to Drive String Trimmer Innovation Forward

EGO makes some of the best battery-powered string trimmers for homeowners thanks to their solid performance and low vibration. The line also has some of the top innovations and we’re seeing that again in the EGO Line IQ battery-powered string trimmer.

EGO Line IQ String Trimmer | The Big Deal

Without a doubt, the biggest talking point is EGO’s latest innovation—Line IQ. In the simplest terms, it automatically feeds the line to keep your cutting swath at 16 inches without needing to bump the head as you go.

EGO also includes their PowerLoad design. To load it, simply pull your new line through the head to the middle of its length, push the PowerLoad button, and the motor automatically winds it in.

Between those two technologies, working and line changes have never been easier.

The deal gets even sweeter with a telescoping carbon fiber shaft. It’s more than strong enough for the job, reduces the overall weight of the trimmer, and gives you some length adjustment to dial in the right fit for you.

Additional Features

  • Lifetime shaft warranty
  • Brushless motor performance and runtime (up to 60 minutes with a 4.0Ah battery)
  • 0.095-inch line
  • Variable speed trigger
  • Weather-resistant construction
  • Compatible with all EGO 56V batteries

EGO Line IQ String Trimmer Price

We’re still waiting to hear an official launch date for this model, but expect retail pricing to be $299 for a kit that includes a 4.0Ah battery and charger. There will also be a bare tool option. Pricing is still TBA on that configuration.

As always, EGO backs this trimmer with a 5-year warranty. The carbon fiber shaft is guaranteed for life.
