4 years ago someone suggested a 2nd handle for the leaf blower would be helpful.  I just got the new 580 CFM blower and I couldn't agree more.  There appears to be a slot molded into the top of the blower that looks like it might accept something like a handle.  Perhaps this will be offered as an add on accessory in the near future?  The problem is that when you have a 5.0 battery and you've been blowing for more than 5 minutes, you need two hands for better control and fatigue relief.  My old B&D corded blower had a "T" handle on the front in addition to the loop handle on the back where the trigger was.  Either a "T" or a loop like on the hedge trimmer would work and you could switch hands as well.

That slot is for this shoulder strap which may help with your hand fatigue.
