Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sirco Handy, Great Tool
When I decided to be my own ‘mow and blow guy,’ I looked around for tools. I wanted cordless battery implements, and I found the EGO line –mower, blower and trimmer, among others. They had a lot of positive reviews and having used the tools I understand why.
The leaf blower is light and easy to use. The battery has good life and charges fast. Most importantly, it is quiet operating at low RPM’s, which is most of the time. The leaf blower’s controls are well designed for ease of use, and I really like the “turbo” thumb button that instantly puts the tool at full power. Another advantage is that I can use the same battery for the edger/trimmer, which saved having to buy another expensive battery.

Been using my Ego blower about a month now. Really like it to the alternative gas or corded electric blowers of which I've had both. The dial on front to select the fan speed is great and the turbo button on top to kick it up a notch is nice also. I use it on the lower setting to sweep my garage as opposed to using the broom and does a much better job. Then turn it up on high to blow grass clippings off the drive and sidewalks. Battery slides on and off the back very easily and I have since bought two other Ego yard products which I use the same battery to power all three devices. Overall really like the design and products. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MichaelB17 amazing and interchangable batteries with all ego products
I know if somethings good if my wife gives the approval...not only did she approve but she looks for reasons to use the ego blower before i even get a chance to. Lightweight, incredibly powerful for being powered only by a quick charging li-ion battery! I recommmend all ego products to anyone looking for great quality without ever needing gas for their equipment.

Works as good as my old electric blower. I don't miss the extension cord getting caught on objects either. Like the option of having adjustable blowing power. I'm very pleased with this product.

Love it! Even used it, carefully, on the ladder to blow out the gutters!
Gets the blowing done fast!

I purchased just the blower by itself because I also have the EGO line trimmer (also 5 Star product) and the batteries match up. I have a standard size yard and and I am able to use both the blower and line trimmer for my front and back yards on a single charge. This blower is very powerful considering it is cordless. Very comparable to standard homeowner gas blowers. Light weight and easy to handle.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GlG Short battery life
We bought this blower after returning a previously purchased one that didn't have enough power. My husband was originally quite happy with this purchase but after about 2 weeks he noticed the battery wasn't holding a charge like it had been. Now, after about a month, we are lucky if it works for about 10 minutes before dying. I get the whole turbo thing, but that was the main reason we bought it in the first place. We wanted a blower with power! Very disappointing! Would not recommend!

I was sick of my gas leaf blower leaving me smelling like exhaust so I searched for an electric blower that would take care of my yard. Found this item on HomeDepot.com and read all of the great reviews. I ended up receiving it as a gift last Christmas. I was finally was able to use it this spring and wow, it did NOT disappoint.
I first tackled blowing all the leaves that piled up along my house over the winter, no problem on turbo. Heavy wet leaves any leaf blower will struggle with, this is no different but believe me it has surprising power. Then I used it to clean out the garage; again it was nice that it's electric as the gas smell didn't smell up my house. Lastly I of course used it on my grass clippings after I mowed. I have 2 acres and I use it on my long driveway, back patio, and sidewalks. Plenty of power and battery life to last.
Another positive is it's quick to charge and LED indicators let you know when it's still charging and when charge is complete. I've never tested the duration of the battery on regular and turbo but I suppose if you're doing a very large job it may be an issue. Personally it's worth it to me, use it for the ~1 hour it lasts and while it's charging for 10-15 minutes rake up the leaves you've already accumulated.
In summary, buy it, you'll love it. Think I'll get the string trimmer next.
