Has anybody tried this?  Is it still well balanced?  Does it start hurting your hand/wrist too quickly?

I have used it occasionally, it's a little heavier. I just an old shoulder strap left over from other equipment. Works great

The newest one 575cfm has a clip. The earliest one 480cfm has a little hook. Don't know about the 530 cfm one

I just sold my 530cfm last week and making a trip this Friday to the states (Massena) to get the 575cfm model cause Canadian distributors decided that the 575cfm model was not worth it for our market.....Total BS.

You should get two 575s if you're making a long road trip.

I find that because the battery is still right under the handle the extra weight does affect balance and is not so heavy that I need a strap. I actually prefer the big battery for any job that takes over 10 minutes so I don't worry about having to ration power.

I have tried it a few times, it is heavier. I was switching arms to deal with the extra strain. Agree for jobs I know will take longer its worth it, most of the time for what I do the 2.5 amp is fine.

Didn't you have a second account where there was a picture of you with a bigass fish in your hand?
