Considering that the Craftsman string trimmer goes for $99 regular price and also includes a charger and battery. No blower but how much is a blower worth?

That is a lot to pay for a string trimmer, but it is a pretty good deal considering it includes an 8.0 battery, rapid charger and the blower. I own this, and would buy it again. The optional edger attachment works really well too.

The 2724-20 blower as a bare tool goes for $150 any day of the week, $99 on a good sale, and the craziest deal on it has been $70 but you had to buy 3 and stack coupon codes with a promo. It's slightly better than the dewalt blower IMO.

this is not just any string trimmer. it's a power head that accepts multiple accessories, one of which is the string trimmer.
then it includes a blower (usually $100 on sale, regular price $150), 8.0 and charger (maybe another $100), so you're looking at $180 for the power head and trimmer which isn't bad.

Solid pricing for all the elements included. You can work really really hard to try and beat this price and maybe save 20 bucks.

I am a Milwaukee tool guy but there are far better ego deals for yard. HD just had ego trimmer and blower plus 2.5 battery for $200. I'd argue ego is better. The big difference is it wasn't egos multi tool but still almost half this price

I've been thinking of ego vs Milwaukee for months now, and I was thinking more towards egos side, but there are a lot of reports all over the internet talking about the batteries dying around a year or less, and it seems to be often enough that it's a problem. Secondly it seems egos warranty doesn't cover the battery which at around $150 is pretty much the cost of the tool. If not for that I'd lean towards ego, but I'm thinking about Milwaukee now because I already have batteries in that ecosystem. Oh also the power wind head ego has is cool, but lots of complaints for that too. Sad because I really wanna like their system since they have a lawnmower. Hope this helps someone decide.

I have also seen quite a few reports of failed, or highly degraded, ego batteries after just a year or two. Also seems as though their support is not great, from what I've read. To each their own, but I really enjoy all my other m18 tools and batteries so I think this is at least worth a try and worst case can be returned.

Extremely small sample size, I know, but I have 2 different sized batteries from first-generation Ego 56v tools (mower and string trimmer) - and at approximately 5 years old I am just now starting to notice their degraded performance, they've worked pretty well up to this point. And even now, I think it's only the larger battery that isn't working as well. They have been good tools overall. I don't really like the performance of the string trimmer, but again, mine is the first one they made - pretty sure the newer ones are brushless and better in most ways.

Imo greenworks (or any other 40v system) is fine for a mower since you can get most of the batteries to work interchangeably with minor modifications. I have a 40v self propelled greenworks mower ($150 clearance last fall with a 5AH battery) and it works well. If I had my way (read:funds) I'd have other Milwaukee tools/accessories for the rest of the yard equipment, but alas, the greenworks trimmer (non-power head) was clearance for $20 with a 2AH battery, and their blower/mulcher was only $100.

I do have a corded Ryobi power head/straight shaft/expand-it tool with a tiller head and have the edger attachment showing up soon (once DTO ships). I'm 100% glad I went corded for the tiller.

I don't think it's a crazy deal, but I have both these tools (though my trimmer does not have the Quik-Lok) and I would buy them again at this price.
