Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ronwao1949 EGO BLOWER in action
I have other blowers that are electric and gas powered but needed something QUICK and EASY to use for small projects and this was the ticket. On sale through H.D. it was an easy purchase and even used my Pay Pal money to buy it. Happy with the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YardCrazy Lightweight, Strong Power, Easy Handling
This blower has it all. Battery fully charges in less than an hour - maybe even less than a half-hour. It's lightweight and easy to handle. It's very easy to switch from hand-to-hand while in the middle of blowing without any interruption in blowing. And actually what I like the best is that when you first press the buttons to start blowing, the blowing comes up gently from 0 to 100% which makes it so much better when you're in tighter corners like the garage. So you can get that initial gentle blowing to get in tighter spaces without it starting instantly at 100%. This was a more expensive blower for sure, but worth every penny.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chip My fall was wonderful this year....
This is the most powerful battery operated blower I have used. It's so much more powerful than my cheaper blower I used previously. It's a bit more heavy than my last blower but worth the extra weight and money. My only concern is when the battery will degrade as the blower is more pricey as well as a replacement battery. This blower is quieter than a gas blower and made my leaf blowing this season very easy. In the past I could not clear off heavy leaf coverage which this blower handled fine for me. I'm just wondering if I can use it to clear my walkways this winter with it when we have a light snow. I recommend it although I've only had it for about 1 month.

I live on a 1.63 acre property with patio, pool, walkways & lots of sidewalks and long driveway ... Even with all that space the blower is up to the task maintaining its power/charge ... The boost button is a nice feature for stubborn debris ... I find myself using it more often & I'm thrilled there's no cords or spark plug

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ginger Great buy
It is very lightweight yet powerful. As the deal of the day it was an incredible value and I have told several others about it. I even tried to get the guy behind me who was admiring it to buy one. The rechargeable battery makes it so easy to just grab it and go after mowing and not having to fill with gas and pull the string on my gas powered blower. You just click and go. Great power and charges pretty quick. I can do a half dozen or more quick touchups on FULL high before I need to recharge.

Light weight and powerful. At full maximum power it will feel like a jet engine in your hand and will move the most stubborn wet leaves at max power setting. 56 volt battery recharges in half an hour or less, depending on how much charge is left. Don't expect to get any more than 45 minutes of run time on high setting and no more that 10 minutes of run time at the max setting. I Like the ease of use and its light weight. Cannot be used to vacuum and can not add any attachments e.g. for blowing out rain gutters, etc. Comes with 3 year warranty on the battery and 5 year warranty on blower unit. Paid eighty five $ on special. Would I pay full price? Not really.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BobM Battery would not charge after 3 uses
I have a small yard and i was okay with the performance of the unit, though i would have preferred a longer battery life. I used it three times and now the battery would not charge (product was bought just over a month ago). I called EGO to see if there is anything i'm doing wrong/if there is a quick fix available. They suggested i find the receipt and register the product and they'll look to send a replacement for the battery/charger.
If the product breaks down after three uses, even if they replace the faulty parts, I wonder what might happen after a year of use when the warranty expires. I don't see a reason to own the high priced, low quality product and so its going right back to the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seasonedDIYer Great blower!
nearly as powerful as my heavy duty corded blower, feels lighter than it is as it is well balanced. Quieter than my other electric blowers.
