A new cordless line trimmer from EGO has been named as a winner of an EIMA Innovation Award. EGO was presented to the with the award at the EIMA exhibition in Bologne on 11th November, less than two months after the same technology was awarded with an Innovation Medal at Nuremberg’s GaLaBau exhibition.

The cordless outdoor power equipment specialist received the Innovation Award for its ST1510E – Power+ Line Trimmer featuring POWERLOAD™ technology; the industry’s first line trimmer tool with a fully automatic line re-loading system.

Available to landscaping and gardening professionals across Europe in early 2019 through EGO’s dealer network, POWERLOAD™ removes the need for the fiddly and frustrating process of loading new line – a problem that anyone who has used a garden line trimmer is all too familiar with.

To load the ST1510E – Power+ Line Trimmer featuring POWERLOAD™ technology, users simply insert the line through the head of the tool. After a push on its green activation button, the automatic re-loading system then perfectly winds the line to the required length in less than five seconds.

The competition acknowledges genuinely innovative machines, accessories or components capable of improving productive procedures and the quality of the work of operators in the sector.

Otello Marcato, Sales Manager at EGO, said: “We are delighted to have won an award at the EIMA Technology Innovation contest. This is the second European award for EGO’s POWERLOADTM technology – a clear display of our efforts to develop useful and truly innovative products for our customers.

“Anybody that has used a line trimmer has experienced the frustration of reloading line. It is an aggravation shared by professionals and consumers alike!”

Like all EGO products, the ST1510E – Power+ Line Trimmer featuring POWERLOAD™ technology uses a 56 volt Arc Lithium battery, engineered to match or surpass the performance of petrol powered outdoor power tools.
