Might go and take a look at this. I notice the Makita is also well priced although it is only 36v. Total package weight on the Makita is 6kg. I wonder what the full weight of the trimmer head /skin and battery and the additional extension pole for the Ego comes in at?

Battery mower head to head from Trade Tools:-

 

 

the Ego won the day but 22mins runtime from a 7.5AH!!!!! - that's one lawn for me - just can't see how they're a commercial proposition yet.

Personally I think the only battery operated tool worth its weight is  a hedger. My AEG 58V is one of the best investments I have made. Battery lasts forever.

 

The rest of the range is great ......but not for commercial.

I agree...  I use my ego 3 times a week... 

nothing compared to the cut and power of my Honda 216

id consider a chainsaw, and thinking about a baby one handed chainsaw. i saw (haha) a tree guy using one to break down a few small limbs with the other hand free, seemed pretty handy. and for knocking the odd branches off in the trailer so things stack better.

 

Havent seen the AEG but happy with the stihl battery hedger.

Theres definitely something civilised about picking up a battery tool and it works, without any huffing and puffing and warming up

The small chainsaw you refer to was most likely the Stihl 192t or the newer 200t. Both are professional saws, purpose built for the arborist. I own the 192 and is a godsend piece of equipment when climbing or even chopping stuff to fit your trailer. The saw still sits around the $800.00 price tag. I suggest if your in the market for a similar saw, purchase an equivalent. Bunnings sold a small petrol Ozito saw for about $100.00. Pretty much the same size. I owned one and used it purely for the crap jobs such as working on golden canes/Cocus etc. Save the good tools for the good jobs in my opinion.

+1 for the hedger - and I'd add the blower - I have all Ego gear and the blower is outstanding - I don't own a petrol blower now and can't see me buying one again

Yep, 45-50 mins give or take.

About 6ish inner/middle (regularly mown) suburban lawns on average.

With 2 batts & a rapid charger, continuous run time.

Totally commercially viable for OUR applications.

Possibly not as viable for those with larger &/or rougher lawns.

 

Ando, what does the Ego supporter pack consist of ?

 

Cheers Fred.
