EGO is a new line of outdoor power equipment featuring a 56-volt lithium ion battery for the first time in the industry.

Available at Masters Home Improvements & Trade Tools, EGO’s 56-volt cordless outdoor power equipment offers powerful alternatives to conventional petrol powered lawn and garden products with the new line consisting of the EGO POWER+ mower, EGO POWER+ blower, EGO POWER+ line trimmer, and EGO POWER+ hedge trimmer.

Delivering 40 percent more power than 36-volt options, the new EGO range gives consumers the convenience of cordless with the performance previously found only in petrol powered equipment.

An industry-first, EGO’s 56-volt power is significant as until now, no lithium-ion battery powered lawn and garden product has been able to deliver more than 40 volts, ensuring that there is no compromise in the torque and performance of the equipment, unlike conventional rechargeable lawn mowers and other outdoor power equipment.

In addition to lower running costs at approximately one tenth that of petrol-powered equivalents, EGO’s new line also boasts of reduced noise and vibration, while the total absence of operating emissions is a compelling environmental argument in favour of the equipment.

According to EGO National Business Manager Barry Crowhurst, consumers are familiar with cordless outdoor power equipment but many of the rechargeable lawn and garden products have not met performance expectations.

EGO’s new range of outdoor power equipment is backed by 10 years of development, and is designed to exceed expectations. Barry explains that EGO’s 56-volt POWER+ cordless outdoor power equipment is capable of matching or surpassing the performance of petrol powered machines without any of the noise, fuss or fumes. EGO engineers also overcame the voltage barrier by developing new technology for a battery and charger combination that allows the equipment to deliver more power and superior performance in a cordless design.

Feature highlights of the new EGO POWER+ System include a 56-volt lithium-ion battery offering 40 percent more power than the leading 36-volt battery; battery removable and interchangeable with all EGO tools; optional rapid charger with a charge time of just 30 minutes from zero to full charge; Keep Cool battery technology protecting every cell in the battery pack, keeping the cells cool, even in the most extreme conditions; battery pack’s unique arc design allowing battery cells to breathe easier, protecting them from overheating; and power management system featuring state-of-the-art electronics integrated into the battery pack and the charger to protect the battery during use and charging.
