Best price on EGO 56v 7.5A Pack, handle 30 amps?

Post by CarlRich » Oct 16 2018 5:11am

Can’t seem to find a sale on the 7.5A pack I want to use to power kids go kart and Razor mx600 dirt bike. Both run with 1800 watt 48v motors at up to 30 amps. There is a sale on the backpack leaf blower where you can get the 5A battery for $60 but no deals on 7.5A pack. Best I’ve found is $290 new on eBay. Anyone use these packs at up to 30A intermittently or know where a better deal can be found?

Grainger had them on sale earlier in the year. I haven't had time to finish making my 3D printed connector design test yet.

$60 for 5A is a super deal, two of those would make a great ebike pack!

too many projects!

Seems to me one of the string trimmers got to that current level, but I have not verified that

I’ll check with Granger. I should also say that you can’t buy a five amp hour battery for $60 but if you buy the leaf blower you can get a five amp hour battery for $60 more than the leaf blower on its own.Considering the cells in these things are good for 20 A apiece (max) they are an incredible value.

Thanks, I had looked at that ad but didn’t view the options. Too bad I don’t need a leaf blower.

You probably need a snow blower then. :D
They are $799 with two 7.5A batteries and a charger included. $600 in batteries and $100 fast charger said to charge 7.5a pack in one hour. At Home Depot and not on sale.
