Having already reviewed both the EGO 56V cordless string trimmer and the EGO 15 in brushless string trimmer, getting our hands on the brand new EGO power head string trimmer seemed a logical next step. Of all the battery powered outdoor power equipment I’ve reviewed, the string trimmer is my go-to for introducing landscapers to the technology. […]

Admittedly, the last Bosch 18V reciprocating saw didn’t perform all that well against the competition in our cordless reciprocating saw shootout. At the time, Bosch told they had a replacement in the works and it was going to be something special. We saw the Bosch GSA18V-125 at World of Concrete in February and it is […]

Everywhere we go, people tell us that 20V Max tools are more powerful than 18V tools. But in the 18V vs 20V Max debate, is that actually true? Well, no, actually. DeWalt was the biggest name to get this conversation (and confusion) rolling. That’s because they changed from the 18V designation on their Ni-Cad tools […]

Of course, not every step of the process or every job is fun, but it’s certainly satisfying to create something the customer loves. What never fails to be fun, however, is using a rotary hammer to chip, […]

Often in our shootouts, we try to keep the list of tools reasonable. With so many features to consider and tons of wood to cut, it doesn’t typically make sense to invite everyone to the party. Sometimes it’s a price point, battery voltage, or top-rated tools that make the cut. But this time, we invited everyone […]
