You sent me an email asking me to write a review of my new EGO cordless blower. The link in your email to send me to a place to submit a review doesn’t work. I get sent to a page that says, “We're sorry, but the page you're looking for could not be found.”

 

I do have a comment however:

 

I’ve been using a corded electric blower for many years. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the frustration of keeping the 100 foot extension cord from catching on my landscaping and maneuvering it around trees. My new EGO cordless blower rids me of that frustration. Not having to get out the 100 foot cord also means I’m going to be more likely to get the blower out for small jobs.

 

I am amazed at the power that the Ego has and also how unbelievably quiet it is. When operating my corded blower I wore hearing protection; that isn’t necessary with my new EGO.

 

But there is one thing about my corded blower that I like better than the EGO and that is that the carrying handle had a place for my other hand. Operating a blower is really a two-handed operation and the EGO only has a hand-hold for one hand, which fatigues my forearm in a very short time. I’ve attached a rifle sling to my EGO blower and I’m hoping that will fix the problem.
