Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 40volt Easy on, easy to use
This product uses the 56 volt lithium battery. The turbo power button is great but it uses a lot of power and drains the battery quickly. Overall, the blower is much easier to use than the traditional gas blowers in that there is no gas to mix, poor or make a mess with. It is just so much easier to pick it up and press the button; no pulling of cords and hoping that it starts. My only negative comment would be that the blower opening is too large which reduces the concentration of air at a single point. I would recommend a new attachment that would narrow at the end, more like a conventional blower, which would help concentrate the air flow.

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 Sue Ego 56 volt lithium leaf blower
The battery and holder look like a space ship dock..amusing..it does charge very quickly. It has enough power to clear debris easily from the driveway and the flower beds. It's velocity is fully adjustable so you don't blow your mulch away too. It is balanced and weighs similiarly to a corded unit. I was so impressed with the quality I bought Ego's 24" 56 volt 1/2 inch cutting hedge trimmer and use the same battery for both. That trimmer cuts hedges like going through butter! You will not be able to vacuum up debris as there is no attachment for that. Maybe that is in the making, so I will be keeping my corded unit for that purpose. The battery lasts at least 1/2 hour to 45 minutes while using the turbo setting most of the time. I'm still figuring that part out, but have not used it enough yet. The fall will be the true test!

This works very well and has adjustable speeds which comes in handy. A little on the heavy side but the battery is massive and has never died on me yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roadruner Best blower I've ever owned
This is the best blower I’ve ever owned. It’s not a gas blower but it has more than enough power to sweep up dry leaves. After the initial battery charge I used it to clean my back and front yards, drive way and side walk. It took about 1hr. mostly on low speed and the battery held up fine. I really like the slow start feature. This minimizes blowing that pile of leaves in the wrong direction. It’s light weight and well balanced and no cord. It was a little pricey but I’m happy with the performance and I do recommend it.

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've been using this now for almost 2 months on a daily basis. I like that you can set the speed with a control on top and it will stay there. I know some people like it in the button but then you've got to hold it steady when you're working. The turbo button does all the work anyway when you need it boost it, turbo boost is there. Run time on the battery is excellent and it charges in 40 minutes as stated.

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.
