COST-SAVING BATTERY POWER

You may think that state-of-the-art technology is more expensive. A key driver of EGO’s commitment to innovation is to create superior alternatives to petrol that are also cost-effective. And we’ve succeeded.

ANNUAL COST OF BATTERY VS PETROL

To compare the cost over a year: an EGO cordless hedge trimmer will cost only £78 to run; a 2-stroke mix petrol-powered alternative will cost £1,505; and the same tool powered by 2-stroke mix will cost you the grand total of £3,120. These estimates have been calculated according to kW pricing in the UK, and the cost of petrol mix based on published UK pricing. †Petrol equivalent of 3 litres per day.

EGO CORDLESS GARDEN TOOLS COST LESS

Our cordless outdoor power tools cost less to run, but what about the equipment outlay? On average, our tools cost less than their petrol-powered counterparts - so, over five years, EGO works out at half the cost, including the equipment.

With lower running costs, superior running times and energy performance, low maintenance, plus the convenience of having a battery that fits every tool, it’s clear that buying into the EGO Power+ System is your best value choice.

EGO tools are high performing, better for the environment and operator health. Make the switch to battery power now, and save on costs sooner.
