EGO Power Head String Trimmer Edger Review

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.

DeWalt FlexVolt Blower Review

Lithium-Ion blowers are the category that every commercial lawn care Pro loves to hate. No matter what the marketing claims, cordless blowers just don’t push the kind of power that Pros need. But where does that leave the property owner that doesn’t need 200 MPH speeds couple with 600 CFM or more? Cordless blowers are […]

In a crowded field of lithium-ion blowers, the Ryobi 40V Jet Fan Blower enters the scene looking like some sort of futuristic death ray straight out of Dr. Who. While Ryobi does claim “gas-like power” with their 40V lineup, there’s no doubt their target user is the homeowner. So let’s dispense with the commercial lawn […]

Ryobi Battery Powered Riding Mower Review – RM480E

With all the developments in battery powered outdoor power equipment (OPE), one thing has been elusive. There are not many sources for battery powered riding mowers. The Mean Green Nemesis NXR mower was the first we personally saw, but its $8,999 starting price hardly seems affordable for the average homeowner. The Ryobi battery powered riding mower […]

DeWalt FlexVolt String Trimmer Review

When we first introduced the DeWalt FlexVolt OPE line, it begged the question of who it’s targeting as a user base. DeWalt confirms that their 40V platform is their focus for commercial landscaping and lawn care crews. They also tell us that FlexVolt is their homeowner line – but think Prosumer with some land to […]

Makita Cordless Lawn Mower Now In Stock!

The new Makita cordless lawn mower is not the first of its kind, but it is the first among the major power tool brands. Milwaukee and DeWalt are the other major two competitors, but neither has made a commitment to a mower yet. Bosch has some options in Europe, but that doesn’t help us much […]

Ryobi 40V Brushless Mower RY40180 Review

It seems strange to say that there are a plethora of lithium-ion lawn mower options on the market. They’re not exactly flying cars, but we’re mowing our lawns – mowing – with a battery. We introduced most of the major players a couple years ago in our battery powered mower roundup. Ryobi has given their […]
