I was looking in getting the ego 580 cfm leaf blower. Trying to save a few bucks. And was wondering if anyone has run the 580 blower with a 2.5 battery? And if so, what kind of runtime?

I don't own that blower but the chart on page 11 in the user manual shows run time with the 5.0 AH battery. The 2.5 should be about half that run time.

As well, the run time will be determined by how fast you run it. I barely use my 575 blower at half speed for most things and I think I get a pretty long amount of run time doing that. Rarely do I need to push the speed. I like using a 2.5 ah battery with my 575. Weight is right and the balance is good with the 2.5.
