Thanks for the review! You mentioned an 18 minute runtime for the unit, is that with a 2Ah battery? Do you have any data with the 5 Ah battery? Also, if you were going to go with one blower would you choose this over the 80 volt units? I've got the Kobalt and wondering if this is a significant upgrade. Thanks in advance!

It's Home Depot again... I need to remember to look at the manual specs instead of Home Depot's.  Also, there is the speed of the air at the fan, which has a lesser cross-sectional area than at the nozzle, so the air moves faster there than it does at the nozzle.

Hi guys, we actually just caught that typo about the max air velocity. The real max air velocity actually is 142 MPH. We're updating our manuals to reflect the change.

Confirm this is for the backpack blower and not the 575 unit?

TAT, I'm sorry. I thought we were talking about the 575 CFM blower for some reason. The max air velocity for the 600 CFM Backpack Blower is 145 MPH using turbo.

It's no wonder Jen assumed discussion was  re the 575 unit--look at the title of this thread, people.   :)

@theatomtwister, did you upload a video of the taper attachment? I'm not good at finding things on the forums :o)
