Now That’s Using Your Head: EGO Brings Popular PowerLoad Feature To Multi-Head System
There are so many tools you need to have at your disposal to maintain your lawn well, and they can take up a ton of space. Multi-Head systems are a great way to have the right tools and reduce your overall equipment costs. EGO is no stranger to this concept, but doggone it, that PowerLoad string trimmer is awfully convenient. Now that the EGO PowerLoad Multi-Head String Trimmer is on its way for 2023, you won’t have to choose between the two.
EGO PowerLoad Multi-Head String Trimmer: The Big Deal
This is the first time EGO has paired PowerLoad technology with its 56V battery-powered multi-head system. If you’re new to the feature, PowerLoad automatically winds up your trimmer line, saving you the irritation of doing it manually. You simply feed the line through the trimmer head to its halfway point, press the self-feed button, and let go when the line gets to a usable length.
The big question is… how is EGO accomplishing this? The PowerLoad button is still near the trimmer head and it comes on a new powerhead model. However, attachment systems use a driveshaft to run each attachment and create an electrical separation from the power source. Our best guess is that there’s an additional electrical connection for both sides. We’ll dive deeper once we get one in our hands.
Despite this seeming wizardry, the powerhead is compatible with the full range of Power+ Multi-Head attachments, which includes attachments for cutting, trimming, clearing, and more.
What’s not clear yet is whether the new PowerLoad multi-head string trimmer attachment will work with the original EGO powerhead.
One other big change EGO is making is that both the powerhead and string trimmer attachment with a carbon fiber shaft.
- Up to 45-minute runtime with a 4.0Ah battery
- Quick-release adjustable handle for control and comfort
- 16-inch cutting swath
