GreenWorks Pro ST80L210 80V 16-Inch Cordless String Trimmer, 2Ah Battery and Charger Included

https://www.amazon.com/GreenWorks...2B80v&th=1

I got the 80v blower for Christmas and it didn't come with the battery (the cheap weasels).

The cheapest new battery is on amazon for $140
The cheapest refurb battery is on GreenWorks website for $99

Then you have to buy the $65 battery charger.

Ugh!

Not sure why the price is so low. Basically a free string trimmer with the battery (or vice versa). But I'll take it! Two for one Smilie

The trimmer by itself is usually $150.

Caveat' is that the trimmer isn't modular (you can't put attachments on it like the $330 one.

This is just not true. You are calculating the battery capacity in watt-hours, which tells you nothing about the power draw of the motor. My Ego mower puts out the exact same power on a 2Ah or a 4Ah battery - it just does it for less time on the smaller battery.

That said, neither battery voltage nor motor power determine the overall performance of these tools. If all else were equal, they would, but there are so many other factors that go into the overall design of a tool.

I have the entire 80V line up for Greenworks and it is great for my needs. The lawnmower and blower being the stars of the lineup. That being said, I would go with the EGO 56v if I could start all over. The build quality and batteries can't be beat. If you look up reviews they are consistently the best rated and the run times are amazing. I like seeing they are actually competitive in the price which was not the case last year.

If you are starting your electric collection go with the EGO, but if you have 80V tools already this is a good deal.

Which is a better product? This or EGO 15 in. 56-Volt Lithium-ion Electric Cordless String Trimmer with Rapid Reload Head and 2.5Ah Battery?

I can find EGO trimmer for the same price today. I think that one is a good deal than this one.

Where are you seeing the EGO for the same price? For me it's 175 on Amazon.

The blower is awesome. It does chew through the charge, definitely need a few batteries.

This was $160 for a week in the beginning of may. Also, it has been lower. Good deal, but not great.

I also got the deal from February. Trimmer is an older model (maybe discontinued). It also doesn't support attachments like the current model does. That said, it's a great trimmer with plenty of power. I'm trying to hold out for a SD on their 80V hedge trimmer but I think I'll break down and buy one next week.

Even EGO Blower is also same price $149. But you can buy this one without battery and can use it alternately

Torn between this, which I can sell the batt and charger if I feel like it, and the $124 GST80320 that takes attachments. I have A LOT of edging for the size of my lot with front street, driveway, sidewalk, walkway to house, alley, back car port so would kinda like the option but this is pretty darned slick if a person can resell the batt and charger.

$124 plus whatever attachment and I'm getting up there in price too. Hrmm.

Can you elaborate on how 56V EGO is better than 80V Greenwork? I'm looking to buy l, preferredly locally. I see that Lowe's carries Kobalt which offers 5 year warranty. TIA
