Request: the 575 unit isn't being sold as a tool only at Home Depot or at RCPW.  I want to buy another one or two.  If it won't be sold there, could I buy it or them directly from you?

Wow, that's how I got mine, tool only. I see on HD website it's discontinued. They still have the tool with battery though. I wonder if the 575 will eventually go away because of the 580?

That would really sadden me because based on what I've heard about the 580, the 575 has a better EDF that makes less noise and also I personally, contrary to a bunch of people on this forum, prefer no turbo button or a lockable turbo button so I can set the unit down on full power and walk away.  I do want to put three to five of these on a mini flatbed cart and use it as a push blower.  The 575 is the quietest blower I've seen.  I really do not want to see it go.

Twister - what is the application for your blower push cart.  Work application or low cost electric vehicle ?

In place of a gas powered wheeled blower like a Billy Goat or Little Wonder, though I could use them to make a go-kart that would be pretty fun.

The 575 is my first ever leaf blower so I don't have anything to compare against, but it must be the way I use mine as I also don't feel the need for a turbo button. High speed on the 575 seems plenty powerful enough, even though I rarely use it, and the "speed lock" device on the 575 is handy. Although I don't even use that feature all that much. Would be good for your push blower idea though.

The 580 on turbo is about as powerful as the 575 on high.  The turbo button is just a way of engaging the full power of the 530 and 580 units among others.  The way to get full power on the 575 is to just pull the trigger all the way.

I am referring to "Oh wait, it's a different company now. WTH is going on?"

No confusion here. Just found it interesting that the company, from Ken's original link, has changed. Puts enough doubt in my mind to not buy from them.

Very good Gentlemen.  They were off my list at full price no warranty, so that part didn't phase me I guess. Carry on.

I noticed that the question is labled "in progress", so thank you EGO again very much.
