Ego Power Head System – Multi Head 56V Outdoor Power Tool System

New to the Ego 56V line of battery powered outdoor power equipment is a new Multi Head system called the Ego Power Head System.

At the heart of the multi head system is the Power Head system power head which holds the handle, trigger, battery and motor to power multiple head attachments. Which include a string trimmer attachment, a pole saw attachment, and an edger attachment.

Power, versatility and convenience are all here: you don’t have to choose between them. The Power Head is the heart of your EGO POWER+ Power Head System. The hi-efficiency brushless motor makes the most of any EGO 56V Arc Lithium battery (available separately). Take advantage of one or all of the full assortment of EGO POWER+ Power Head attachments: Pole Saw (PSA1000), Edger (EA0800), String Trimmer (STA1500) and Pole Saw Extension Pole (PSA1000). You have the flexibility to choose what you need and when you need it.

  • Compatible with all EGO 56V Arc Lithium batteries
  • For use with all EGO POWER+ Power Head attachments
  • Hi-Efficiency brushless motor
  • Weather-resistant construction (ixp4)
  • Adjustable front handle
  • Hi-Low speed selector
  • Lock-Off button for added safety
  • Genuine EGO parts ensure compatibility, quality and performance

Basically the power head looks like the upper half of their standalone string trimmers with a variable speed trigger and large foam cushioned secondary handle. It features a brushless motor just like their string trimmers which should offer a nice blend of power and runtime.

What’s great about the Power Head system will be that it’s modular and can accept multiple attachments. I’ve seen other systems include attachments such as a blower attachment, hedge trimmer attachment, cultivator attachment, and much more to increase it’s versatility.

I also want to mention that even though the power head system is a system within itself, it is still fully compatible with all of Ego’s 56V batteries and chargers, meaning you can have the power head system on top of any other Ego 56V products and share the same batteries and charger.

One of the tools that up until now Ego didn’t have was a pole saw, and now with the Power Head system, Ego finally has one. And the same goes with the Edger attachment.

Another benefit of a modular system such as this one is that the base and the attachments take up less space in your garage or storage than full size standalone pieces of equipment. This works in favor of anyone looking to save space.

Another benefit of modular systems is price since the price of a new attachment is usually considerably cheaper than a complete standalone unit. The prices of each attachment is $99 which is less than a stand alone unit. But you do have to pay a premium to get into this system as the Power Head is priced at $149 and not only does it NOT include a battery or charger, it also doesn’t include any attachment. This means you have to spend more money for a battery, a charger, and an attachment head!

Also the power head is priced higher than Ego’s lowest price standalone string trimmer which starts at $129 per Home Depot pricing at the time of writing. That makes the power head $20 more and doesn’t even include the string trimmer attachment. Add the string trimmer attachment to the power head and you’re looking at $228 and that still doesn’t include a battery or charger. Yikes!

Being a Ego user myself I do like the direction Ego is headed with this new modular head system and hope they come out with more attachments in the future. Too bad they didn’t have this sooner because I needed a pole saw and had to get me one from a competing brand (Ryobi 18V). They also need to fix their power head pricing structure as it’s too high in my opinion to get started, maybe make it something like $230 with the power head, the string trimmer attachment, a compact battery and charger.
