    Blah blah not enough runtime if you want to cut your yard and neighbours yard 3 times per charge, only benefit is compatibility with other tools.
    So basically you made the argument that Makita or Milwaukee would be perfect for OP.

    Do any of the 40v+ manufacturers make anything other than the yard tools? Like an impact for tire swaps?

    Dewalt makes all three and has a few impacts that can do tire changes. The blower is able to move snow, just has a little trouble with hard pack from people walking on it. I've got the trimmer but haven't been able to use it yet.

    He was referring to the same ecosystem rather than different voltages. ie if Dewalt makes a 40v mower and a 40v impact wrench.
    I think Makita might be the only one that does the piggy back (x2 system).

    I personally have the Ryobi 40v system for outdoor tools and Ridgid 18v system for power tools. No complaints and Ridgid also comes with lifetime warranty including batteries.

    You can use the 60v Flexvolt batteries on the 20v tools without a problem.

    That's fantastic. Never knew that. I suppose that's why it's called Flexvolt. Although, I'm satisfied with the Makita stuff.

    I overheard tonight while at Home Depot in Beacon that they are loosing or dropping the contract with E-Go to Lowes. Expect what stock they have to start taking price drops but unknown when. When you go on their website you'll notice that there isn't much to be found anymore.

    If you have the string trimmer, highly suggest adding one or two of the 3 pack of replacement spools. It’s only $13 for 3 spools and you will need them eventually. I am almost done my original spool after 2 seasons and that’s with pretty average use.

    I forgot so now I’m waiting for their support to call me back so that I can hopefully add them on for free shipping :Banghead:

    Apparently they don't want my money. The checkout screen is broken. Won't accept my address, and keeps saying to fill in a field that doesn't exist.

    If you get ahold of customer service, let them know.

    I had that same issue. It was the country and province fields. Even tho it shows Canada and AB selected by default, you have to click the fields and select them again. Try that out and see if it works for you

    Yeah there's some good deals there, I picked up the trimmer/blower combo and the extra trimmer spools. I've been wanting to replace my gas trimmer for ages.

    Got my snow thrower and leaf blower delivered on Saturday. Still waiting for the string trimmer spools but no immediate rush as i should have enough to last me for the 1 or 2 more times i need it this season.

    On a related note, i just noticed the bumper on my string trimmer has worn down quite a bit and no longer has enough sticking out to work properly by simply tapping it on the ground... instead i have to flip it upside down and push it in with my fingers while pulling some string. I found the replacement part for $6 but the shipping is like $25 so kind of a pain in the ass. I found a 3d printer design for them so might give that a shot if i can find someone with a 3d printer to print one for me.

    Yeah looks like the spools are backordered, I got my trimmer/blower Saturday as well but the spools haven't shipped yet.

    My order said the spools were supposed to be with the trimmer, but they weren't.
