Seems like a great price with the 5ah battery.

Any opinions on M18 vs Ego?

OP, Please put Milwaukee in title or body. Not everybody knows about M18 manufacture.

Also Arcanlaw, Ego is 56V and Milwaukee is 18V

Charged sales tax for shipping to California.

Not Arcanlaw, but curious what difference does this make, functionally?

I tried to look it up myself, but these two websites don't explain anything that I can understand:

Milwaukee tools (power tools and hand tools) are really highly regarded, especially among pros that use them, which is why this deal is appealing to me. Also, Ego seems to focus on lawn-care, while Milwuakee has all sorts of tools.

In case I might get other tools in the future, I'd rather invest in the better company / ecosystem.

Oh. And, I looked at the Ego deals posted recently, and there seemed to be an issue with bait-and-switch where the newer battery with battery level gauge built-in wasn't was actually in the box. That seems sloppy and shady to me.

I have a couple Milwaukee tools and they are great, definitely a couple bars above the Ryobi stuff that I have a lot invested into.

For lawn care I was thinking I'd need to bump up the power but I saw this M18 deal and was wondering if their reputation superseded power ratings, because like you I don't really know how 18v vs 40v vs 56v really stacks up to other parts of the puzzle. Looking forward to any other input!

I have the M18 weed eater and it works great. MUCH MUCH better than the 40v crap and decker I had.

Power is a function of Current times Voltage. Milwaukee has designed their newer high demand batteries to supply more current while keeping the voltage the same. Other makers kept the current the same but upped the voltage. 18v x 2a = 36v x 1a. You also have to be aware of marketing techniques as well. Dewalts 20v batteries are 18v nominal. Electric motors also vary greatly in efficiency. They can be built for more torque or more speed, they can be brushed or brushless, gearing also plays a factor. What this really boils down to is voltage alone from competing brands is not a good indicator of quality or power.

Thanks - any idea how the power compares between M18 & Ego?

I do not. I have the Milwaukee and it's a beast. Never used the ego stuff.
