Customer Questions & Answers

Would I be able to use this in the winter to clear snow

Asked by: Scott
I am not sure, depends on how wet the snow it--we have used it to blow the salt on the sidewalks back away from the building after a snow event and it works great for that.

Do i have to let the battery completely drain before recharging?

Asked by: professional
No, but depending on the size of the yard you should have two batteries for this. They discharge in about 20 minutes with the tubo engaged.

Can the nozzle be switched to the left-hand side?

Can the nozzle be switched to the left-hand side?
Asked by: Horsetrough
No, sadly. The handheld has nearly as much power an can be used in either hand easily.

Do you have the 7ah battery and can I substitute it and pay a little more ??

Do you have the 7ah battery and can I substitute it and pay a little more ??
Asked by: Bill
It only come with the 5.0 AH Battery. You have to order the 7AH Battery and cost of battery over $200.00. FYI, I use it once and have to recharge more than 8 times to finish my backyard less than 1/4 acres. I owned the Husqvarna 580 BTS Gas Blower and it is much better than the the ECO 145 MPH 600 CFM Cordless Blower. The Husqvarna 580 BTS Gas Blower has 908 CFM and can blow away any heavy wet leaves below the grass level. I finish the job less than two hours and compare using the ECO 145 MPH 600 CFM Cordless Blower more than six hours. The ECO 600 CFM will not blower away the heavy wet leaves below the grass level. and I have to use the Turbo setting and if you use the turbo setting the 5.0 AH battery will only last for 15 minutes and again I have to recharge more than 8 times with multiple batteries in order to finish the job. Each battery will require over 45 minutes to finish charging. If you blow the concrete driveway, the ECO 600 CFM will do the job and not in heavy wet leaves back yard. Also, the ECO handle control is not user friendly, it will move left or right by itself and you will have hard time to control it to the direction you want it. The Husqvarna 580 BTS Gas Blower has a much better handle control. Overall, due to short run time battery, and time consuming to recharge the battery, and difficult to control the handle, I will not recommend this unit.

145 MPH 600 CFM 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Backpack Blower with 5.0Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and worthy gas replacement EGO Backpack Blower Review. Having used the handheld 480 and 530 EGO Blowers, I just knew that the new high powered battery powered backpack blower was for me. A little background on my yard. I have about ¾ of an acre. My front yard has a few trees, but my side and back yard are completely covered with trees. My cleanup can run into a 4 to 5 hour ordeal with leaves, 6 to 10 times a year. It’s a ridiculous amount of time which I fight with, because I do not enjoy clearing fallen leaves and debris. Unpacking the blower is a pain, but the reward is that it is put together rather easily. I was quite surprised with the benefit of a retractable and removable extension tube. This makes storing the blower really easy as it takes up a lot less space when the 2nd tube is removed for storage. On to the most important thing, using this blower. Ergonomics: 1st off I was a bit turned off at all of the safety straps. But they are on all the new blowers sold these days. I cut off the mid strap and left the bottom, as it’s only slightly useful. The backpack itself is weighty because it holds the 7.5ah battery, but nowhere the weight of a gas engine with a tank of gas. Once you get the height of the shoulder straps adjusted and get things at the height you are comfortable, the unit sits comfortably on the body. The handle can easily be adjusted up and down the tube so you can find a comfortable length, as easy as a twist knob, and it doesn’t come loose. Over all the unit is comfortable and doesn’t stress the shoulders or back, and when properly adjusted puts your arm in a comfortable and pain free position. Use: Ok, let me just say I’m still in awe at the power. Did I say it has a lot of power? Comparing to my Makita Backpack Blower, this unit puts out a bit more CFM and less MPH. What does this mean? It has no problem moving a LOT of debris! I can move larger piles of leaves and twigs because it simply pushes more volume of air. CFM is air volume, MPH is air speed. Speed is more helpful with little things like clippings and small things that tend to stick to rough surfaces. But, EGO offers a flat tip that takes care of that too. I had no problems moving a large amount of damp, clumpy old leaves and branches. Yes I said branches. When using the unit and you hit some really nasty clumped up stuff, hit that turbo, and off it goes. I kept my back yard completely clean for the first year in 20 years of owning this home, why? It was much easier. I didn’t have to go get fresh fuel for my blower, no problem starting a cold mower, only needed 2 charges to do my whole yard, and finally, I finish my yard in under an hour. Summary: The EGO backpack blower deserves 5 stars, and I’m not just saying this because I own it. If it was less worthy, I would say so. I only have one recommendation to EGO, put a cruise control lever on the unit. Pro’s: * Great power, easy to use * Easy storage * Much lighter than a gas-powered blower * Comfortable ergonomics * Grab it and go. * Great value when purchased with the 7.5ah battery Con’s: * Too many safety features (this is my opinion only on these) * Would like cruise control.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 20 minutes, that's all you get I really want to like this product. The battery gives you 20 minutes. 20 minutes! That barely puts a dent in a reasonable sized lot during leaf season. The product is good. Slightly under powered, but acceptable, right up until the battery dies at 20 minutes and you have a huge leaf pile you now have to rake and 3/4 of a yard left untouched. The product should sell at this price with a high capacity battery or at least 3 batteries and chargers to be at all competitive. It's really too bad. I wish this was not the case. Apparently the technology isn't quite there yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Regardless to whatever anyone claims this battery powered unit does not measure up to a gas unit!... Regardless to whatever anyone claims this battery powered unit does not measure up to a gas unit! I have a Stihl unit that is 15 years old and the Stihl totally blows this thing away! But I got this for quick jobs ie blowing the deck, driveway, and garage out. For this it is fine and my wife and son can use it. But if you think you are going to do a full fall cleanup of your yard it ain't happening. But I knew this when purchasing the unit it is mostly for my wife because she can't start the Stihl. So as long as you know what you can expect from this unit it is a decent battery blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Lightweight, powerful, lasts a good hour or two of heavy usage (with turbo engaged), sturdy and comfortable design. I have not had this product for very long (few months maybe) but it has been put to work and has met every expectation and had zero issues so far. I would recommend this product to anyone. I had never used a backpack blower before and was concerned about it being more of a hassle than it's worth and was worried that it would be more difficult to move around or blow into hard to reach spots, but so far I am really enjoying it and have no regrets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful but awkward I also have the hand version so I'm comparing them and find the hand version preferably. I have a lot of leaf blowing to make a defensible space around my oak studded Redding Ca property so have to swap batteries into charger every 15 to 30 minutes for 3 or 4 hours at a time. You have to take the backpack off and on to do this and the 5Ahr battery takes more than twice the time to recharge than the 2 and 2.5 Ahr ones. Sometimes overheating which really extending the time. So I find myself switching to the hand blower after the 5 Ahr battery expires if my wife isn't around to swap batteries for me. Both are as good or better than the loud, hot, hard starting gas blowers I have. Have multiple batteries and chargers to make it viable.

It is a replacement for another I bought without the battery. I did this because I already had two other EGO devices and thought I I would just use their batteries. Little did I know that I would only get about 10-15 minutes of use because the other batteries were 1.0 and 1.5 amp/hr. In reality, the blower needs the 5.0 amp/hr. battery to get proper use out of the blower. The blower id work great just not for very long. Now that I have the proper battery I expect it to preform just as well but for a longer period of time.

It has at least as much power as my gas-powered backpack blower, plus it's much quieter and lighter. The one drawback is the limited battery life. When I use it a full strength (without using the turbo), it lasts less than 30 minutes. I've got a little over an acre with lots of trees and a long gravel driveway. Thirty minutes doesn't even come close to getting me halfway through the job. I could buy a second battery to extend my work, but that's another $200! Funny how the blower WITH battery costs $300, but the same blower WITHOUT battery costs $200. Doesn't that mean that the battery should cost just $100?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ego Power backpack 5ah battery I bought this about a week ago and I also have the greenworks 80v blower. The backpack blows greenworks away! I did have a inop 5ah battery that EGO is sending a replacement for (US representative). This company backs their products FACT. These kick Greenworks/Kobalt out of market FACT. Products look, feel and perform better FACT LOL. Try one and you loose the gas engines noise and upkeep. PS I never write reviews but I made an exception to this company because they deserve it
