The 40V XGT line is primarily OPE centered. Lots of nice looking trimmers, blowers, mowers, etc. in that lineup. No chainsaws yet though, and the cost to buy is a lot
They say 30cc equivalent, reasonable claim or rubbish? I’m getting to the point where battery tool life is a moot concern with a steadily improving in car charging system.

Depends on what type of 30cc. I doubt it’d take the 1.8hp 30cc Echo 3020, but I’d imagine it could take the 1.4hp 30cc Redmax 3050 pretty easily

Yes. 2100 is the gasser 225 equivalent IIRC, 2600 is the gasser 2620 equivalent
no, those are not equals. I have the 2600, it doesn't even hang with a 225. 2100 is shorter and made for homeowners.

You really think the 2600 can take a redmax 3050 easily. I assure you it does not.

The redmax 3050 is a fairly strong trimmer in my opinion. I ran one for 2 summers and in no way does the echo 2600 battery powered trimmer hold a candle to the 3050 when it comes to power and productivity. I apologize if my response seemed harsh, it's just that particular claim in regards to being equal to the gassers doesn't come from the world I live in.

How long did/have you run the 2600?

Just got it. I'm not disappointed in the purchase at all. I knew exactly what I was getting. It is right in line with my other battery units and will be a good trimmer. Plus the battery from the echo 2600 also fits my older shindaiwa t3000 so now I can use the batteries I have.

Are we not going to discuss how absolutely terrible the reverse rotation head is on the ego? Returned the one I picked up. Hated that thing. The Milwaukee split shaft is sooooo much better. Hard to edge with, hard to trim with, throws grass in the pool. Good bye ego.

Both these trimmers are powerhead units with counter clockwise rotation. I’ve successfully modified all three powerheads to be dual directional because I’m a lefty. The way most people feel about clockwise rotation is how most lefty’s feel about counter clockwise. I’m absolutely thrilled with my powerheads able to spin a trimmer clockwise while being able to switch back to normal and run the other attachments properly. I recently added a Greenworks 80v powerhead to my arsenal.
