I think it was over a year ago I pointed out the pricing defect in the 575 blower, and here where are and it still has it. The 580 tool costs $20 more, but the 575 kit costs $50 more! Should have been fixed a year ago.

So those with experience with the two, the 575 controls preferred? I would imagine the CFM difference isn’t worth mentioning.

I haven’t used the 580, but it brings back the Turbo button and has a much lower low speed than the 575, which is about the only negative thing I have to say about it (the low speed of the 575 is pretty powerful).

On the other hand, the 580 and 575 kits are the same price on RCPW.  I really hope you save a 575 for me there, I have plans on buying another one.  Also, when you say $20 more, $20 more than what?  At HD, the price difference between the 575 and 580 units is $50.
