MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Lowe's Companies, Inc (NYSE: LOW), announced that it is expanding its industry-leading portfolio of outdoor power brands as it launches EGO battery-powered outdoor power equipment. Beginning in December 2020, Lowe's will be the exclusive nationwide home center to offer the top-rated line of EGO's battery-powered mowers, blowers, string trimmers, hedge trimmers, edgers, chainsaws and snowblowers. Earlier this week Home Depot announced it was no longer carrying EGO.
EGO products will be available online at Lowes.com and in select stores in fall 2020 and will roll out to all U.S. stores nationwide by February 2021, furthering the company's commitment to offering more sustainable products in its assortment. The battery-powered, cordless line of outdoor power equipment is capable of matching or exceeding the performance of conventional gas items, without the noise and fumes.
In addition, Lowe's will begin offering select SKIL battery-powered outdoor power equipment in late 2020 including push and self-propelled mowers, leaf blowers, string and hedge trimmers, among other products and accessories.
"We are relentless in bringing the best quality, innovation and brands to our consumers, and today's announcement is another bold step forward in our pursuit of bringing the best outdoor power equipment offering to our stores," said Bill Boltz, executive vice president of merchandising for Lowe's. "EGO is an undisputed industry leader in creating cutting-edge technology and design. This line of cordless power equipment is trusted by both DIY and Pro customers to take on any lawn and garden project, with convenience and ease."
"Chervon is excited to extend our partnership with Lowe's to include EGO, the #1 rated brand in cordless outdoor power equipment," said Mike Clancy, CEO Chervon North America. "We also look forward to the nationwide introduction of the all new SKIL 40V, 20V and 12V lineups."
EGO's award-winning roster of mowers, blowers, string trimmers, chainsaws, snow blowers and more are powered by its 56V ARC Lithium™ technology – the most advanced in the industry.
Notable EGO products include:
- EGO POWER+ 21" Select Cut Self-Propelled Mower: the first cordless mower to exceed the power of gas.
- EGO POWER+ 650 CFM Blower: the most powerful cordless blower in the industry (gas or cordless).
- EGO POWER+ 15" String Trimmer w/ Powerload Technology: the world's first trimmer that makes replacing the line as easy as pressing a button.
- EGO POWER+ Nexus Portable Power Station: the world's first battery platform-compatible alternative to gas generators.
Earlier in the year, Lowe's further cemented its position as a leader in outdoor power equipment with the launch of Honda Power Equipment and an exclusive partnership that makes Lowe's the only nationwide home center to offer Ariens ZTR mowers and snow products. Lowe's continues to offer leading brands across all outdoor power equipment categories with John Deere, Craftsman, Husqvarna, Honda, Ariens, and now EGO and SKIL.
