EGO unveiled a new line of commercial battery-powered equipment. The line includes a 15-inch string trimmer, 600 CFM blower and 25.5-inch hedge trimmer, all powered by a 56-volt backpack battery.

“Landscapers work in tough conditions. Their tools are exposed to the elements daily, especially rain, dirt and dust,” said Sarah Hohman, brand manager for EGO. “Research confirmed durability factors heavily in the purchase decision. We understand these tools are an investment for hardworking landscapers around the country so we took construction to a new level with the Commercial Series Backpack Battery and earned an IPX56 rating, meaning it can be submerged in water for several minutes without harm.”
