    Default EGO Gear

    I notice Husky have a new combi trimmer which appears to have a gear box rather than the motor in the head like the 520ilx. I think the ego also has a gear box. Anyone fitted a speed feed to either of these or any other for that matter and how does it affect the operation?

    This youtube video answered my question about the Husky. This guy has put a speed feed on it. Interesting that he mentions it has more power because I noticed in the specs the noise rating is higher than the 520ilx which to me indicates more power. The specs don't have the vibration figures. Do multi tools vibrate more than the non multi due to the two splines. I'd still like to know if the EGO takes a speed feed.

    Some model EGO line trimmers come with a speed feed head, others (the ones with the motor at the head) don't.

    Cheers Fred.

    Impressive,be about the only one that i'd lean towards.If it balanced well between the gearbox and motor end then it would be even better.

    I have one as well. This machine is equivalent to a 25 cc petrol with perfect balance and buggar all vibration . I use the 9 ah battery which goes all day . I have 5 ah for the hedger blower and chainsaw . It has three power settings and I normally use the low one but sometimes use 2 for thicker edges , top speed Rios the skin of a rice pudding lol perfect for long grass .
    Being a multi tool makes it vesitile. I too love this machine .
